[Job/Internship] Visualization Internship [Summer '17]

GROUPS:

Wolfram, creator of Mathematica, Wolfram|Alpha and the Wolfram Language, are seeking a full time intern to join our Visualization department the summer. The visualization team aims to bring state of the art visualizations to our users in a clean and intuitive way, using heuristics, automation, and the full power of the Wolfram Language to make things as simple as possible across a variety of platforms. Current visualization functions range from general data plots to a wide range of specific application areas, including finance, geography, statistics, geometry, date and time, and more. Common tasks shared by the team include prototyping and implementing functionality, finding creative solutions to hard design and implementation problems, and writing examples for documentation and marketing materials. Large portions of the visualization codebase is written in the Wolfram Language, and the target is usually an abstracted graphics scene language. (In certain cases there may be javascript components as well.)

The ideal candidates are enthusiastic about their work, eager to find elegant solutions to problems, and have good communication skills for working in a small team environment. They have good sense for how to effectively use visualizations, while being able to explore new and innovative approaches to conveying information. Familiarity with the Wolfram Language is strongly preferred. Experience with modern high-level visualization frameworks such as D3 , or low-level geometric data structures in C, is a plus.
