Intern Feedback

"My job has been challenging for sure, but I was able to start contributing very quickly because of my work with GO, Docker, and AWS with your team. I have already learned a lot in just these two months about new tech and overall business knowledge."

"I also wanted to take the time to say thank you for a great internship experience and the mentorship I received with your team. I appreciate the level of responsibility given to me in my work and I enjoyed the challenge of learning. Over this past year, I feel like I have grown as a developer and gained more confidence. I wanted to let you know that I felt excited in the mornings before I'd come into work because of the opportunity to contribute and because I felt valued - this will be something I take with me as I move into future jobs. Thank you again for all of your encouragement!"
