We are excited to announce that we recently welcomed two summer interns here at Prime 8. We carefully selected two current college students from a large pool of internship applicants and are thrilled to have them as part of our team. The Prime 8 Internship Program provides a great opportunity for students to acquire hands-on business experience, apply the theoretical knowledge they have gained in their studies, and infuse our team with their fresh perspective and enthusiasm!  

Please join us in warmly welcoming our Summer 2019 Interns, Tanner Simon and Cameron Leland. Tanner is currently pursuing a double major in Management Information Systems and Marketing at Washington State University. He enjoys fishing, attending Seattle sporting events, and spending time with his new puppy, a Black Lab/German Shepard mix named Scooby. Tanner is most excited about the opportunity to get a glimpse of the real-world, post-graduation. Cameron is double majoring in electrical engineering and music at Northeastern University. He enjoys playing instruments, DJing, writing music, and working with all things tech and audio on his computer. Cameron is looking forward to gaining work experience with a business that is so well integrated in the community here in Washington.

We are excited to continue to build on our successful internship program. Our interns have gone on to do incredible things! Former intern, Bryce Hendrix, now works full time with Prime 8 as a Financial Analyst. In Bryce’s words: “My internship gave me the skills for a successful transition into my current role. The amazing work environment at Prime 8 made me want to stay.” Former interns, Carson Lombardi and Bobby Solberg, both just completed their sophomore year at Santa Clara University. Nina Alhadeff, Prime 8’s high school intern from 2018, is completing her freshman year at the prestigious Barnard College in New York. Erik Kuebler, a former Prime 8 intern, is currently studying Finance and Computer Science at the University of Washington. We asked Erik what he loved most about his internship at Prime 8: “I learned about the leverage that teams have over individual efforts. Over the summer, the other interns and I combined forces to complete projects with a level of quality, efficiency, and discipline that wouldn’t have been possible for even the smartest individual. This kind of team-oriented spirit courses through the halls of Prime 8. It’s clear that the company's secret sauce is cultivating a community of people who are excellent collaborators. Post-graduation, I hope to inspire a similar kind of community as a business leader. I’m interested in building software that makes the world more fun and livable for everyone. I hope that wherever I work next, the office is kept as organized and fun as Darla keeps Prime 8. She’s set a high bar!”
