About the opportunity

The Ellucian Banner General development team is seeking an Analyst intern to contribute to their development efforts for several projects. The Banner General product is the foundational product for the Banner suite, providing shared database and application functionality.

Potential candidates should possess a fundamental understanding of ERP solutions and/or educational systems.  The software projects this team works on are more on the technical vs functional side, so ideal candidates should possess a technical interest and understanding.  Interns will have the opportunity to contribute to our projects through several different actions, from quality assurance, defect replication and evaluation, project requirements definition and task identification. The Banner General product is developed against a few tech stacks, including Oracle and PostGres, deployed OnPrem, SaaS and Hosted.  The product is developed to be accessible and language neutral, so there will be experience to be gained in a variety of testing technologies, including using screen readers, testing translations and testing across several browsers and versions.
