Aaron completed multiple internships simultaneously this summer. Aaron’s titles included (but are not limited to) CSSI section leader and student mentor at Google, where he was selected to work as an algorithms TA and student mentor for the Google education team; field operations engineering specialist at Helping Hands Community, where he worked on the website and helped create partnerships to deliver food to immunocompromised community members; and backend team lead engineer C19 at BayShield, where he made an app that helped supply much of central California with PPE and led a team of UC Berkeley engineers that won the Jacobs prize at UC Berkeley. This fall, Aaron is completing a full-time, six- to nine-month internship with SpaceX.
I have had the opportunity to work with teams all over the world, building products to help those in need. I have had opportunities to pitch the IE School of business on a product to help students find off campus housing, and also I had the fantastic opportunity to pitch Daniel Ahmadizadeh, the CEO of PersistIQ and the founder of Quarantine Together, on an application that will reduce food waste by allowing farmers to sell directly to consumers.
