Software Test Engineer Intern

May - August 2019 • Charlottesville, VA

What I liked

Willowtree is a company that pushes the envelope in many aspects. Whether it's creating an inviting work atmosphere, focusing on a culture of always learning new technologies, or just advocating for the employee as a person, the company makes one feel at home.

What I wish was different

Private work spaces would be wonderful. Teams work in an open office setting and as a result this can cause distractions to those working when passerbys talk to one another for example. This may be resolved by next year though since the Charlottesville branch will be moving into a new HQ.

Advice

Be yourself at Willowtree and never be afraid to push yourself professionally. Your peers at the company are wonderful people and only seek to help you do so.

What I wish was different

Nothing. WillowTree is an amazing company.

Advice

There's problems and there are solutions to problems. If you want to be succesful, always be looking for the solution, as opposed to regurgitating why you can't figure out the problem.

Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2017 • Charlottesville, VA

What I liked

Working at Willowtree was incredibly fulfilling and progressed my understanding of software development in an extremely meaningful way. I had a personal mentor who helped provide me with feedback and improve my coding skills to force me to be a better programmer. The interns bonded over lunches each week and at the end of the summer I was extremely sad to be leaving!

What I wish was different

Honestly nothing, this was an amazing place to work.

Advice

Prepare to work on things that you've never worked on before and use new technologies that you haven't seen already!
