June is fun around these parts for a lot of reasons: the lakeside tailgates, the weekly street festivals, and, of course, the arrival of interns!
We’re excited to be hosting two interns this summer, Peter Park (aka, Spiderman, natch) and Nate Hartmann.
Peter, who will be working with both the development and marketing teams, comes to us from the University of Georgia with a B.S. in computer science. He sought out Table XI to get some experience beyond web development, as well as to participate in one of our office Nerf wars. Other fun facts: Peter has traveled to every US state and western European country, and he can solve a Rubik’s Cube in under a minute (expect a video of this in the near future).
Nate is a rising senior at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign and will be working primarily with the marketing department. Two years ago he founded Yellow Box, an online advertising firm that generates new and original content for small businesses, helping them stay relevant in the marketplace. Nate’s looking forward to crafting and writing for our social media campaigns, and we’re excited to tap into his expertise in video and content creation.
Both Peter and Nate will be joining us on the blog during the next few months, so look out for their articles on digital marketing trends, the Chicago tech scene, and lots of other topics.
