Team Summify welcomes Stefan Filip, another crazy hacker and our new intern! As you can tell from the photo He’s excited to be here, and I’m envisioning he struck a similar pose for the paparazzi when he hopped of the airplane at YVR. After only a few short days, he’s enjoying Vancouver and says the trains, streets, signal lights and diners remind him a lot of New York.
Joining us until December, Stefan is on the home stretch of completing his Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Bucharest in Romania. He’s an international medalist in programming contests and recently interned at Google’s New York office during the Summer of 2010. After working in one of the most powerful technology companies of our time, Stefan wanted to find out what it’s like to work with a small team trying to make it big. During Cristian’s visit back to Romania last winter, Stefan heard that Summify was looking for interns and jumped at the opportunity to join the team. He hopes to learn more about the developmental challenges and lifestyle of a start-up company, so that one day he’ll be prepared to launch his own. It’s safe to say he’s in the right place and we look forward to throwing a few challenges his way. Offline, Stefan enjoys running, reading, dancing and games, be they on a computer, board, or sports field.
Be sure to check back in to see how Stefan’s doing. If you have any questions about his life as an intern at Summify tweet us @Summify or drop us a line at team(at)summify.com. Check out Stefan on Summify and Twitter to get to know him a little better:
