Over the past couple of weeks, I have had the honour to work with 42 Technologies and the awesome team of talented, spirited geniuses who operate the startup. The other intern and I have been collaborating together, and splitting individually, on fascinating projects revolving around the startup. These include learning about business intelligence solutions and retail analytics, remodelling a blog, creating tutorial screencasts for the product, optimizing SEO, and advertising with social media.
The environment at 42 Technologies is incredibly open and friendly; if we need any support from the team on our projects, they are always easy to approach and willing to help. In addition, they have been very flexible about when and where we work, whether at home or in the office, early in the morning or late at night, so long as we get the work done. This malleability provides us with the opportunity to leverage our own strengths and work more efficiently.
The internship has taught me immensely about the startup ambience, and the results that are made possible when a group of assiduous, diverse people come together with their ideas and talents. It saddens me to think that I only have one week left at 42, but the whole experience will remain with me for a lifetime!
