What are the qualifications and minimum requirements?
We’re big on codes and communication. If you have a basic understanding of coding and great communication skills, we’d like to hear from you. We’ll figure out the rest together.

- Candidates are encouraged to attach their work along with their resumes if applicable
- Candidates must be willing to work at Leapfrog after the completion of the internship
- The internship will begin on April 27, 2023, coinciding with the International Day of Girls in ICT. Please note that you do not have prior commitments like exams or travel plans during the internship period.
- Keeping this in mind, we discourage students who are still committed to college as we expect a full-time commitment of 40 hours a week. However, final-semester students whose exams do not coincide with the internship period can apply.

What is the screening process like?
Our screening process is designed to be a fun and engaging experience. It’s a four-step process that starts with a quick online examination, followed by a video interview with some of our senior team members. This is your chance to show us what you’re made of, and tell us all about your skills and what gets you excited about work. If all goes well, the final stage is where we welcome you to the Leapfrog team!
Will I be eligible if I have previous experience in different fields (software engineering, administrative work, UI)?
