Our first intern class will work closely with our engineering team to help build the next iteration of infrastructure and tools for Loom. As a company, we are looking to accelerate information flow between every member of the global workforce. Be it making Loom's video creation faster or more delightful, working to make our infrastructure more performant and reliable, or surfacing the right content in a shared team library to the right audience, you will be working on well-scoped projects that help us learn how to expand the base of how Loom functions as a workplace communication tool.
