UI Engineering Intern
I joined Pertino as an engineering intern on the User Interface (UI) team. Upon joining the productive environment, I quickly learned to work within an agile environment and learned to work within the code base, built with Emberjs. Interactions with cross-functional teams included implementing requirements directed by the product management team, implementing design mockups by the UX design team, and engagement with the backend team to properly hook API calls.
The Pertino web app was created using Emberjs, a MVC framework. Having never worked with Ember, I prepared for the internship by doing multiple tutorials for Ember and building a simple Ember app.

Building new features was a main focus of the company. Much of my internship was spent working on new features and bug fixes.
