    @Cory McAboy Just a quick thought. Your job description seems to be looking much more for a senior engineer than an intern.
    You might want to consider rephrasing it.

    @cedric I appreciate your feedback. To help me improve it, which part seems to imply a more senior level?

    All of it 🙂
    switch modes easily between solo efforts and team projects, and can overcome a wide array of coding challenges. They're proficient in frontend and backend technologies. They enjoy the rigor of producing high quality code that’s at the forefront of industry innovation. They’re thorough, detail-oriented, and take pride in their work
    An intern is someone who has pretty much never worked, has only attended college classes, probably barely knows anything about debugging, git, documentation, or shipping anything
    They might have a passing knowledge of the concept in your req, but are certainly not proficient in it
    especially front end

    For interns, you are just looking for someone who's hungry to learn. Period.
    Just my 2c

    No expectations. Someone who's motivated, has a few foundations, knows how to write some code but knows a lot more about micro than macro
    Also, you might want to specify whether this position is compensated.
