Make an impactful contribution with both your writing and coding skills!

The API writers team is looking for a talented intern! API writers are responsible for most of Coveo's public-facing developer documentation. In other words, they are responsible for reviewing all API reference documentation, in addition to writing guides, examples, tutorials, etc. 

The team also maintains the documentation site and automates as much of the documentation generation as possible, which entails a significant amount of coding.

If you have strong full stack skills and are interested in creating documentation on the subject, this may be the internship opportunity you’re looking for! We will entrust you with concrete and impactful projects relating to both coding and writing because we believe that our personalized mentorship program and latest tooling will enable you to succeed.

What would your typical day look like?

  • You start your day off with a team meeting (scrum) to track the progress on the team’s different projects and elevate each other by sharing innovative ideas.
  • You start your morning by working with your coach to produce an example of functional code to demonstrate a use case for one of our libraries.
  • Following that, you jump into your next task which is to review your coworker’s ruby script to automate documentation generation, which they submitted yesterday afternoon on GitHub.
  • It’s already lunch time! You attend a lunch and learn as you seek to benefit from your colleagues’ expertise.
  • After lunch, you review some API reference documentation drafted by a backend developer for a new service.
  • Finally, you collaborate on a module in a developer tutorial. You then jump on a planning meeting with a team you are writing documentation for.
  • The day is coming to an end! You’ve learned so much in a day, you look back and assess your contribution in cultivating excellence, already looking forward to tomorrow! Until then, you join your colleagues for Smash tournament to celebrate your successes. 


Ready to become our next intern superstar?

  • You are studying Software Engineering or Computer Science and you have a passion for writing, or you're doing a double major in Computer Science and something like Linguistics, Philosophy, or Psychology (considered an asset). 
  • You have prior experience with HTML, CSS, JavaScript/TypeScript, and Angular/React/Vue. 
  • You have excellent writing skills and can explain things in a cohesive manner.
  • You prefer writing a script to automate a repetitive documentation task rather than doing it manually every time. 
  • You have a strong sense of ownership; always finding ways to learn and keep up with current trends.
  • You are  proud of what you create; you strive to grow and are results-driven. 

Do you also possess the following skills? That’s Great:
