All Hail the New Onswipe Interns!

Over the past few months, Onswipe’s team has expanded significantly. As a respected innovator in the mobile browsing world, the company has had two rounds of interns since 2010, all of whom have gone forth to do great things. This week marks round 3 – two brilliant Onswipe interns in Business Development have graciously joined our team full-time, and here are their stories:

What’s your favorite feature/aspect of the Onswipe platform?

I really like the user-friendliness of the Onswipe platform. It allows for publishers, who may struggle with technology, to explore and spread their ideas to new platforms. Onswipe’s layout is easy to manage and beautiful to look at, so it’s comfortable for anyone to work with.

What’s your daily life like here at Onswipe?

As a Business Development Associate, my job includes a number of daily tasks. Normally I’m creating and editing demos for publishers, which basically means I’m editing how their site is going to look on a tablet or an iPhone. I’m constantly reaching out to these publishers to make sure they aren’t having any trouble with their site, and if they are I’m trying to fix those for them. Basically, I’m here to help.

What’s your favorite thing about the office?

I’ve only been here for about a week, but I do love the comfortable atmosphere in the office. Everyone’s doing what they need to get done, but not in a stressful environment. The free snacks, drinks, and dog time don’t hurt, either.

Do you have any hidden talents? Special abilities?

I can touch my nose with my tongue!

What’s your favorite feature/aspect of the Onswipe platform?

I love the aesthetically and typographically pleasing designs and how easy it is for users to easily browse through different types of content and media on their tablet and/or phone of choice. The best part about this is that the platform is free, which allows everyone from bloggers to large corporations to quickly expand their mobile audience at no cost.

What’s your daily life like here at Onswipe?

I make demos for publishers who want to see what our platform can do for them, ensure that all our publisher websites are working smoothly across all tablets, phones and operating systems and answer any questions our publishers may have.

What’s your favorite thing about the office?

The pantry (Caramel Vanilla Keurig Pods!), Johnny the dog, and the people who are fun to work with and passionate about their jobs.

Do you have any hidden talents? Special abilities?

I have a multiple set of dimples when I’m really happy.

What’s your favorite quote?

“Stressed spelt backwards is d-e-s-s-e-r-t-s!”

So there we have it – two awesome Swipe-terns in Business Development.
