“I got to work in a real office setting and see what a real business looked like. It was cool to work on the 24th floor in a tall building in the middle of Houston. My workplace was filled with lots of start ups so it was a very modern work space and I got the opportunity to network and learn what real work looks like. I got to apply the python skills I learned in COMP classes which was cool. Buck Jack is very small so the things I did actually made quite an impact on the company, I could see some of the things I implemented making the company more efficient.”
