My Experience

Hootsuite offers one of the best co-op experiences for any student. It is a large organization that operates in a startup-like fashion, thus offering the best of both worlds.

At Hootsuite, you are treated like a full time member right from the start. I got to push code to production in the first week itself. I learnt how to navigate a large code base and wrote code that’ll be used by thousands of Hootsuite app users.

Hootsuite has a fantastic company culture, and I’ve had the amazing opportunity of meeting a lot of friendly, smart and humble people at Hootsuite. I have really enjoyed my time here at Hootsuite and would highly recommend it to any co-op.
