by | May 5, 2021

It’s no secret that we are focused on innovation, structured data, and driving the future of technology. But, at the end of the day, we are still a team – and our most important asset is our people, our minds, and our energy. We push ourselves to create a work environment where each and everyone has the opportunity to develop and evolve in their position. That’s why we work closely with universities to hire fresh, motivated, and energetic interns. A new generation is born.
