A Wild Intern Appears

30 January 2013 By Aaron Feldstein Comments.

In the middle of 2012, I met with a few friends, including Robert Chu and Daisy Zhou to brainstorm ideas for a video game. Robert and Daisy were both busy with internships and school work, so I volunteered to take on some of the programming work. This was not my first time programming but my prior experience was very limited. I tried out Python and ended up using Scala for this project. Towards the end of last year, Robert (who had since joined WibiData) suggested I talk to the folks at WibiData about an internship. When I first started looking at

Three months ago, I set out to find a career at a company that would inspire me, challenge me, and give me the opportunity to grow professionally while contributing to a product I believe in. Today marks the end of my first week at WibiData, and I’m still in slight disbelief when I realize that I found all that, and more.
