Hello, World! I'm Tony, from Michigan (GO BLUE!!!), and I'm pumped to be interning for Zappos this summer.
Here's a photo of me with some of the other Z-Interns!
I'll spend my summer at Zappos coding with the search team in the Website Systems Department. They're a crazy, tight-knit team that really embodies the company's work hard, play hard mentality. Search work is both challenging and interesting. The entire team is extremely supportive, making it a great environment to learn and grow as a computer science student, and as a person.
This team reeks of Zappos culture. (It's a good smell. Everyone showers, I promise!) During the day we take breaks to crank out some push-ups. At the end of a day of coding, we take time to challenge the other web systems teams to a game or two of Zing Zong: a Zappos mix of ping pong and volleyball. The search team also tends to hang out together after work pretty often. Even though this is a job, it's easier to think of my teammates as my big brothers, rather than co-workers.
Here's to a great summer!
