How did you hear about the internship?
I got my internship at Versium Analytics through an alumnus of UCR, Kevin Marcus, who actually co-founded the company. I saw him give a lecture during the ENGR101 class and decided to email him about opportunities at his company!
What's one of your most memorable experiences at Versium?
One of the most memorable parts of the internship was going seafaring with the company. Seafaring is a weekend in Seattle where people go on boats and watch the blue angels fly right above them. We got to go to the CEO's giant yacht and spend the day relaxing on the yacht and watching the blue angels
How's the startup culture?
Working at a startup definitely has a different vibe than a big company. I really enjoyed the culture there. Everyone is very open to helping each other and it's got a very communal feel. I also really enjoyed the relaxed yet productive atmosphere as well as the random Nerf darts that were shot around the office and the beanbag which I did most of my work on.
