We’re here to ensure the advertising industry and the people in it are healthy and engaging positively and effectively with those around them. We’re here, ultimately, to improve the lives of people working in the media industry. And we take our responsibility seriously.


We are looking for a Software Engineering Intern to join our growing team of full-stack applications engineers. You will deliver production code in the first two weeks of the job, but don’t worry, you’ll be paired with a mentor to help you through the process. What you can achieve in the rest of the internship is up to you!


At Centro, we’ve always been about making people’s lives better—from our employees to our clients. Today, we’re building a unified platform to execute every digital media advertising transaction, thus providing a new level of automation and intelligence in ad tech. This is an enormous task that will disrupt an industry and improve the lives of those who work within it.

To do this, we’re aggressively growing our team of engineers, product developers and designers. We are imaginative, passionate, determined and relentless in our efforts. Of course, we are fascinated by the complexity of engineering problems at this scale—it’s what brings bright minds together. But what keeps us coming back (and why we love coming to work every day) is the chance to improve how work gets done: freeing up people’s time so that they can dream bigger and make life better.

Come build something amazing with us.


Collaborate with developers, designers, product managers, and testers to build great solutions to complex digital advertising problems.

Work on projects spanning our entire stack, including our React UI, Rails middle-tier, Java services, databases, caches, and external API.

Participate in a collaborative software development process.

Build and extend Centro’s culture of growth and self-improvement. We expand our skills with lightning talks, lunch and learns, book clubs, and the occasional fun programming exercise.
