In the summer after my freshman year, I interned at Tint as a software engineer. While many of my friends interned at large tech companies, I wanted an experience that would allow me to contribute directly to the product and the code base, and create immediate and direct impact. I wanted to solve challenging design problems and learn best practices for creating modular and scalable web applications.
The primary feature I worked on at Tint was a new analytics dashboard. It uses Backbone.js for the primary front-end framework, d3.js to visualize data, and a few other tools such as moment.js to calculate time ranges and keen.io to measure engagement analytics. The project was a mix of design, data, and engineering – three things I love.
