Test Automation Intern

May 2018 - August 2018 Houston, TX
β€œI like how helpful the mentors are to us!”

Software Development Intern

May 2017 Houston, TX
β€œIt was a great experience to learn about web development. I focused on backend development but the other intern with the same position worked primarily on front end development. There was a lot of independent learning but our supervisors were there to help us out and direct us. We also worked part of the time on side projects with a group of interns developing a new feature for the company that really allows you to explore something different from your main tasks, and work collaboratively.”
