Software Engineering Internship blog

Leapfrog has been conducting software engineering internships every year. During these programs, we train aspiring programmers to be software pros over the course of six weeks. Leapfrog embraces an open and innovative culture— making it the best company for new engineers to learn and grow. 

We have built a strong team of mentors who are experts in their domain. Over the course of six weeks, you can expect a lot of online meetings, boot camps, and assignments. You will also get to work on real-time projects and train to be a top software engineer in this industry.

If you haven’t applied for the internship yet, please find the application form here.

We’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions we got from our applicants and answered them all here.

Internship FAQs

What are the qualifications and minimum requirements?

To be eligible, you only need to know how to code. Good communication is a big plus point. Learn more about the qualifications here.

Note: You can apply even if you haven’t completed your Bachelor’s degree. 

When does the internship start?

Internship program starts from May 4, 2022. 

Note: All dates are subject to change. Applicants will be notified beforehand.

Can the schedule be adjusted if my college begins or if I have exams in the middle of my internship?

Due to the uncertainty of the examination schedules, we will be flexible regarding the internship timings.

Those of you who might have exams during the internship will be scheduled to join in the next batch, which will start in August 2022.

Will I need to be physically present in the office?

We will be running the internship program virtually. All the assignments and projects need to be submitted virtually too.

Do I need my own laptop?

Since we will be working remotely, you will require basic remote working gear like a laptop, headphones, etc.

Will I be paid for this internship?

Yes, all interns will be rightly compensated.

What type of projects will I be working on?

All interns will be getting hands-on experience through mentorship, mock projects, cross-collaborations, and feedback. 

You’ll start from the basics— learning the foundation of coding standards to full-stack application development with React.js and Node.js, PostgreSQL, etc. You’ll get a lot of opportunities to work on challenging assignments under the mentorship of experienced Leapfroggers.

How should I apply?

You can apply for the internship by filling out the application, which shouldn’t take you more than five minutes. The deadline for this year’s internship is April 20, 2022.

If you want to stand out from the crowd, do submit an updated resume and a cover letter. Freshers are highly encouraged to apply. 

What happens after submitting the application?

Once we’ve received your application, we’ll shortlist applicants for a written test to measure your writing ability, technical, and analytical skills. We’ll be sharing other details with the shortlisted candidates.

After the written tests, there will be a technical and behavioral interview with senior team members. All the tests and interviews will be conducted virtually.

What will be the timing? ⌚️

This internship requires you to commit to six weeks of full-time work. Our regular schedule is from 9 am to 6 pm. However, considering the present scenario, we might be able to adjust the timings if required.

P.S. Saturdays and Sundays are holidays. 😀 

What other fields can I apply for?

Currently, we are accepting applications only for software engineers.

Bonus Tips

What should I expect during the written examinations?

All the questions will be in the subjective format (no multiple-choice questions). The test will be designed to measure your logical and problem-solving skills. The questions will be around various programming concepts and you can take your own approach to write the solutions.

What should I expect in the interview?

In the interview, you will be expected to demonstrate your logical reasoning skills and talk about your experiences so far.

If you are interested in other areas apart from software engineering, you can share your resume and profile at career@lftechnology.com.
