An internship at Re-Leased is your opportunity to show us your talent, working alongside some of the best technical experts in the industry. Not only is this the best way to kickstart your career, if you work hard and get results, we’ll offer you a permanent graduate developer position. Our main intake for intern developers will happen through October to January each year. The successful applicants will often start from November to February.
Kia Ora everyone! My name is Stacey. I started with Re-Leased in November 2020 as an Intern Software Developer through the internship program with EIT while in my final year of completing my Bachelor in Computing Systems. I then secured a full-time Junior Software Developer position in February 2021.
8:30am: After a 20ish minute drive from Hastings, soaking up the views of the Bay before starting my day, I get my laptop started up and check any Slack messages or emails that need attention. Then I review tasks from the previous day and smash out some work.
9:30am: Stand up time with my squad, RISCY. This is a great time to get any advice or feedback from your squad on the task you are working on or provide suggestions to your fellow members.
1:30pm: I write up any unit tests that are required and try to get my task into a pull request to get it reviewed before the end of the day.
2:00pm: Every second week we have a demo to some of the ELT’s in the office. This is the time to showcase what the squad has produced and we gain some feedback and insight from them which we can take on board and apply any suggestions.
4:00pm: Every Friday, at 4pm, the office stops all work and gathers together for some social drinks. This time provides the opportunity to socialise with others in the office and wind down together after a working week.
Hello there, my name is Ji Min. I started at Re-Leased in August 2021 and it has been an amazing journey here so far. If you were to ask me about a highlight in my day, I would HAVE to say it’s the people. The people here that you work with are absolutely amazing and they just make working at Re-Leased a whole lot of fun.
9:00am: The day starts with checking slack messages and emails to see if there is anything I need to attend to or keep in mind as I start my day. I usually double check the calendar to make sure there are no meetings for the day I have forgotten about as no two weeks are the same.
12:00pm: Stand up time for my squad, Squad Seven. Unlike most squads that start their day with stand up, our squad has members from different time zones and to account for this we have our stand up at 12pm. Stand up usually consists of greeting all the lovely people in the squad followed by a rundown of the game plan for the day. It’s usually a great time to ask any questions regarding your tasks and get some feedback.
12:30pm: Lunch time. There is a little rest area in the office where some of us have lunch together. Sometimes we go eat out and sometimes we stay in. It’s a good time to chill & chat, to turn off from work for a while.
1:30pm: Back to work. There is usually another squad meeting around this time regarding tasks. So things like backlog refinement, white boarding, sprint planning and retros.
2:30pm: Most meetings are finished for the day which means it’s time for your second coffee. Get up, go get that coffee and come back ready to smash some work until the day is done.
4:00pm: Every Friday, when the office stops for the week and gathers up for drinks, our squad jumps on our computers for a little team building online board gaming. Since half of our squad works remotely, we never really get a chance to talk about anything other than work. This is a great time to just unwind with the team and get to know each other a little bit more.
5:30pm: Home time. Pack up for the day, write down what you want to get done tomorrow and head home. Brisk 2min walk to the car, 8min drive home and the rest of the day to get ready to do it all again tomorrow.
