Poatek’s Summer Job Program is a way to connect international students to our Poatekers, providing everyone a great opportunity to discover and learn about new technology trends.
In the 2021 edition, we received 5 foreign students in our office at Porto Alegre for a period of 2 months. We reached the end of this cycle and our summer interns shared with us their summer internship experience in Brazil at Poatek:
University of Calgary – Canada
“It was certainly a great choice! I was able to learn new technologies and at the same time apply what I have learned throughout the university. However, one of the best parts of the program is that Poatek is always open and very dynamic for interns to try different ideas and learn about other fields that were not included in our main project, so I was able to explore other areas.”
University of Michigan – USA
“I loved it. This summer was the first of so many for me: first international trip alone and first internship. Additionally, I learned a lot about data science and general development, particularly OCR, facial recognition, and Docker.
At Poatek, everyone is super friendly, helpful, and inclusive, both socially and technically. There’s a very large diversity of skills, and people even in other teams had a lot of skills to help each other”.
Northwestern University – USA
“The company exceeded my expectations (it’s actually pretty big) and the office is great and we even had a scooter. I don’t think I could have had a better internship experience in any other company.
This was my first time working so my biggest learning was getting to know how a company works. I loved the Poatekers, Latinos for the win.”
Georgia Institute of Technology – USA
“If I had to use one word to describe the internship experience at Poatek it would be extraordinary. The opportunity to produce real and impactful products among highly intelligent coworkers who treat you like a friend in an international setting is truly unique. I would recommend this program to anyone who is an adventurous explorer and curious about technology.”
Rice University – USA
“The best internship I could’ve ever imagine. I had never been in an environment where everyone is so helpful and patient with teaching. I felt able to reach out to anyone to help with my project, for example, UX designers, app developers, data scientists, and more. Everyone was always willing to help.”
Receiving these students in our Summer Job Program was such an amazing experience for us as well, we loved having them with us during this summer. We also want to thank you for teaching us so much! We hope to see you soon guys!
We can’t wait for the 2022 Summer Job edition!
