Remote Internship Testimonials
Suma Kanuri is majoring in data science and international studies at the University of Michigan. She’s spending one month on a data analytics internship in Bali.
“I’ve been interning remotely for a company with operations in Malaysia and Singapore.
During the internship, I’ve been working on data analytics for marketing. So providing recommendations on how to improve the company’s conversion rates and bring in more customers via the site.”
Whether you stumbled upon Start Me Up because you need a summer internship, a school-time getaway, or just an interesting experience during a gap year of some sort, I would highly, highly recommend you take the plunge.
The internship itself was incredible: entering on ground-level with some incredible start-ups is the opportunity of a lifetime if you let it be.
As part of my internship with a Dutch fintech startup I got the chance to learn about UX design which I’d never done before and always wanted to do which was really great.
Working with my startup mentor, I got the chance to use popular UX tools like Sketch to design and build landing pages.
