Technology Innovation Intern / Data Science Intern

January 2023 Atlanta, GA
“The company culture is amazing, everyone is genuinely helpful and collaborative. Throughout my rotations I had the chance to have multiple mentors, both formal and informal, who gave me great advice and helped me connect with other people at the company. I also thought the work was really interesting, and my managers (from both rotations) were interested in giving me work in topics/fields I wanted to work in. I had the chance to learn a lot of different skills and programming languages that I otherwise would not have, which was really cool. ”
