My Experience

Coming from a Development background, Operations was a whole new world for me. I sought out an internship in Ops to get a better understanding of what happens once code gets deployed. Being part of the Ops team at Hootsuite was an amazing experience. Not only did I get to finally learn what happens in Ops, but I got to work with a great team. Having gone through this experience I feel I have become a better developer (and gained more empathy for ops!).
