Software Engineering Intern

Columbia Gateway Drive | Columbia | Maryland | United States | 21046

Your Role:

Being a part of #OneTenable means we work together and win together. We are all part of one Tenable team-employees, customers, partners, stakeholders...and interns. When you join us as an intern, you are joining the Cyber Exposure movement. Each intern is fully integrated into their respective teams working on real-world projects. No earning your stripes, no coffee-fetching. Just real work.

Tenable, founded in 2002, provides continuous network monitoring to identify vulnerabilities, reduce risk and ensure compliance.  Our products are relied upon by more than 20,000 organizations, including the entire U.S. Department of Defense and many of the world’s largest companies and government.

Our global expansion is creating job opportunities for creative thinkers who are wired for action and delivering big results. We’re also stacked with industry rock stars who are just as comfortable keynoting a conference or delivering a podcast as they are mentoring up-and-coming colleagues. But what our employees are most excited about is our products. Our market-defining technology provides continuous network monitoring to identify vulnerabilities, reduce risk and ensure compliance.

As a Software Engineering Intern, you will be working alongside seasoned software engineers. Tenable has many products, some of which are unique in the industry, that are recognized as best in brand.

Your Opportunity:

  • Collaborate with other engineers within an Agile development environment
  • Learn the skills necessary for developing software in a fast paced, quality oriented environment

What you will need:

  • Experience in coding in C, C++, Java, JavaScript, Python or other scripting languages
  • Be comfortable with Linux, Windows, and/or Mac and possess scripting skills
  • Strong written communication skills
  • Currently enrolled in a Computer Science (or related) program at an accredited university

Example Projects:

  • Bug hunts - exercise applications looking for bugs, anomalies, broken features, etc.
  • Creating diagnostic tools using scripts and/or programs
  • Database analysis, query timing and optimization
  • Creating unit tests and functional tests for new features
  • CSS modifications for User Interfaces

We’re committed to promoting Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) at Tenable - through all equal employment opportunity laws and regulations at the international, federal, state and local levels.
