My first experience involving Liveramp was seeing messages popping up on my Facebook feed – “Liveramp is hiring Berkeley engineers!” I didn’t think much of them at the time, but I suppose they worked; when I saw Liveramp’s booth at a career fair at Berkeley, my interest was piqued. I ended up applying to Liveramp, and over the course of the interview process, I became much more engrossed in what takes place here.
As it turns out, explaining what Liveramp does is just a small subset of the challenges that face anyone who decides to work here; within my first week I was knee deep in the codebase. One of the best parts of working at a smaller company is that you, even as an intern, matter. People will ask you when your projects are done and push you to work harder – and that’s an amazing feeling, because it means that what you do is actually, not just cosmetically, important. If you intern at Liveramp, expect to be working on front-facing products and see your code in production within days, because that’s what’s going to happen.
The best aspect about working at Liveramp, though, is not just the relevance of your code and the fulfillment that making a difference gives you – it’s the personal development that comes along with your work. The amount of support from my mentors, the availability and willingness to help of every engineer, and the ease with which internal coordination is handled here is really what makes the internship so beneficial. I chose to switch teams halfway through my internship to the backend, and because of the flexibility and quality of the engineers here, that transition has been challenging but entirely possible.
If you want a work experience that will push you, develop your coding skills on real projects involving modern industry tech, and introduce you to talented and great people, I couldn’t suggest Liveramp more.
