Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • Palo Alto, CA

What I liked

I loved that the Palo Alto office was smaller and everyone was collocated, so meeting with team members was very easy. Everyone was super friendly, helpful, intelligent, and hardworking. I also had the privilege of working on one of their new teams working on a product currently in the Alpha phase. All around a great company with an amazing culture and employees.

What I wish was different

Not much. I lived in SF and had to make the hour - hour and half commute every day, but that was a choice I made. The development process also varies by team and while the build process for products is improving, it can still take a bit of time and hinder productivity at times.

Advice

Just how wonderful everyone I met was and how much I thoroughly enjoyed the work experience. I managed to develop a feature that is in production and will be used by customers, while also learning new languages and working across the stack.
