For this co-op cycle, we are looking for a graduate level student with experience in front-end design and implementation and overall user experience knowledge to build out the user interface for this system. Prior experience with knowledge graphs is a plus.
All majors will be considered with requisite experience, although computer science, digital media or related courses of study are preferred. React experience is required; python experience is preferred.
SPO-specific location note: we allow remote work, but we do request that applicants be within the US Eastern time zone. Applicants living in cities with Accenture offices may work from the local office if preferred.
