Introducing Viget’s 2014 Interns

Each summer, Viget opens its doors to a group of young people who are ready to make an impact in our industry. This year is no exception. On Monday, we kicked off our ten-week summer internship program with a busy roster of orientation sessions and Happy Hours, discussions with Advisors, and group project brainstorming sessions.

Already, this year’s interns are looking great. They’re a diverse group of college students and recent grads hailing from big cities on both coasts and small towns and farms in between. Their talents are wide-ranging. Their cohort boasts an a cappella singer, a marimba player, and a former debate champion. Besides programming languages and English, they know French, Spanish, Russian, Turkish, Mandarin, and Cantonese.  And they’re creative. Before joining us this summer, they’ve designed and built chairs, comic books, jewelry, and, of course, some digital stuff.

Their enthusiasm is contagious. Over the past five days, I’ve seen our interns ask great questions left and right about how Viget works. They’ve been helping each other get settled in, offering to carpool, grabbing lunch together, offering advice remotely across our three offices. They’re full of ideas for their group project, which is being helmed by full-time Project Manager Amanda Ruehlen. We can’t wait to see what they’ll learn and build. We also can’t wait to get to know each of them even better. For highlights throughout the summer, check out the group's Tumblr blog, as well as Andy's and Nathanael's dev-specific blogs.

We’re thrilled to welcome our 2014 interns, and we’re thrilled to introduce them to you!
