Summer Internship at Cash On Go
I was glad to do my internship in a company which values match mine and that shows respect towards the employees. And I liked how the employees are satisfied with the employer. For example, amongst other things, I created a social media post about an employee who wanted to share his journey in Estonia with Cash On Go. Actions like this show that the employer cares about its employees and is happy about their achievements. It was also great to take part in the team activities outside of the office, which helps people to connect more and have fun together.
For me the most satisfying part about the internship was when I got to see my own work used in the product development. I got to implement real tasks and contribute to the development of the product like the rest of the team. I learned a lot about my speciality which I currently study.
My internship at COG was literally the best internship I have ever been to so far. I came with big expectations but I left with even bigger. The marketing department really gave me a lot of hands-on experience with additional learning experience and the freedom to come up with ideas and solving different tasks. I learned a lot by doing the tasks independently with guidance from the mentor. In addition to that – the friendly and free atmosphere at the office was always motivating.
Everything was satisfying, starting from colleagues and ending with food. I liked that everyone were so patient with me and helped me when I had difficulties solving some task. And talking about food then nobody is saying no to free food.
It was great experience for me as first time working in this kind of environment, as well as great opportunity to see architecture of problems that may appear during your working shifts. I am thankful for this chance to meet smart and interesting people and to receive such valuable experience.
I value the experience gained from working in a real world environment on a big codebase. I also enjoyed learning cool new technologies and tools. In addition to benefiting from my colleagues technical knowledge I also had a few opportunities to hear them share some of their life experience.
I enjoyed time spent working here. Now I really feel more confident about my work experience and future work opportunities. How people behave toward each other here is absolutely new and positive experience for me. This kind of team as in COG motivates to work.
I gained the experience of working with very talented people and was lucky enough to continuously receive valuable feedback to my work. I believe the constant reviewing and positive feedback for my work improved me as a person and motivated me to educate myself even more. I am very thankful for this opportunity.
I feel like being a part of such a open-minded and friendly group of people has certainly made me feel like I am at home. Also the working environment is made very comfortable. If you need anything to do your work better, then you only have to ask. Of course the free drinks, fruits and Friday team lunches were also a big benefit.
It was great to see my code in production and used by people but most satisfying of all was definitely developing my own project from start to finish and then having it incorporated into our testing solution and through that making developers’ lives easier.
