What’s it like to intern here?
From a previous intern:
“It has been truly a pleasure to work with Michael as a UX Design Intern for his startup, GetMotivatedBuddies. I’ve never met a CEO who is so passionate and dedicated to his company. Michael is always coming up with amazing ideas and stores a great vision in his company. He tries his best on all occasions to move the company forward, and his positive energy and enthusiasm radiate to the rest of the team. While he is super driven on his startup launch, Michael is also very considerate about what his users and employees need. When I first started working, he took the time to go through the site with me, patiently explaining features and questions I had, both verbally and in writing. When writing feedback, he was very thorough and considerate. I never felt being excluded or left out of important conversations. He often solicits feedback from others and takes account of concerns or opinions that other people may have. Under his guidance, I’ve learned so much more than I anticipated. For me, it was definitely a great experience interning at GetMotivatedBuddies.”
A highly motivated individual who is passionate about leveraging technology to improve wellbeing and enjoys doing things rather than just talking about them.
