Welcome Summer 2021 Interns!

We are thrilled to introduce you to our five Mojo interns who will be joining our team this Summer. Coming from a variety of backgrounds and schools, we encourage you to get to know them a bit through this blog post.

Fallyn LoganFallyn Logan, Software Development Intern, BLDR Office

Where are you attending school and what is your major/focus?

I am attending the University of Colorado Boulder where I am double majoring in computer science and creative technology and design.

What is the most interesting or challenging project on which you ever worked?

I really enjoyed and learned from an android application I made called Funi. It quizzes K-5th grade kids with reading and math questions in funny ways with the intent of making learning more enjoyable.

What personal characteristics do you feel are necessary to be a successful software engineer?

I think that curiosity, patience, and passion are all really important.

What excites you most about spending your Summer Internship as a Mojo?

I am most excited about exploring all of my interests (design & development) alongside people who are just as passionate as I am!

You’ve been banished to a deserted island with—gasp—no Internet, but lots of power outlets. What one piece of technology would you bring?

A coffee maker.

What are some of your other interests?

I love hiking, skiing, tinkering with electronics, and creating fun graphics on my computer.



Sandipa PandeSandipa Pande, Software Development Intern, BLDR Office

Where are you attending school and what is your major/focus?

I am a Computer Science major at Southeastern Louisiana University with a minor in Mathematics.

What is the most interesting or challenging project on which you ever worked?

The most challenging project I ever worked was developing a web application to give information and live updates about soccer.

What personal characteristics do you feel are necessary to be a successful software engineer?

Dedication, hard work and willingness to learn things.

What excites you most about spending your Summer Internship as a Mojo?

I am really excited to get exposed to a variety of technologies, learn from engineers and other interns, as well as understand the model of a real-world job.

You’ve been banished to a deserted island with—gasp—no Internet, but lots of power outlets. What one piece of technology would you bring?

Electric Guitar.

What are some of your other interests?

I love to travel, take pictures and listen to music.



Toby SavageToby Savage, Software Development Intern, PVD Office

Where are you attending school and what is your major/focus?

I am attending the University of Colorado Boulder, majoring in Computer Science.

What is the most interesting or challenging project on which you ever worked?

One of the most interesting yet challenging projects I worked on was creating a web proxy server that relayed HTTP requests from clients to servers in C. Upon each HTTP request, my program would check for a cached copy of a web page and compare it to the web page's updated version. If the webpage has changed, then the cache would update. Networking has become a fascinating concept to me that I get to implement in current projects!

What personal characteristics do you feel are necessary to be a successful software engineer?

Persistent, curious, and kind.

What excites you most about spending your Summer Internship as a Mojo?

I am excited to learn challenging new coding concepts from the other Mojos and make new friends!

You’ve been banished to a deserted island with—gasp—no Internet, but lots of power outlets. What one piece of technology would you bring?

A portable fridge.

What are some of your other interests?

Traveling, sailing, surfing, and skiing.



Tucker WeedTucker Weed, Software Development Intern, PVD Office

Where are you attending school and what is your major/focus?

I'm currently attending Brown University, and I'm studying Computer Science.

What is the most interesting or challenging project on which you ever worked?

The most interesting project I've worked on was a Spotify plugin app that functions as an aid for finding new music quickly. It is still a work in progress, but the features currently built (search engine, enhanced playlist radio algorithm) have enabled me to find hundreds of new songs in a very short period of time. The last 'main' feature I will implement will collect unique artists from a playlist of the user's choosing, and then create a new playlist of all of those artists most recent released music. This project was/is a great exercise in data wrangling, and I've been able to apply the experience gained from it to everything I've worked on since then.

What personal characteristics do you feel are necessary to be a successful software engineer?

Always being open to new ideas from others, and being able to objectively evaluate pros and cons of ideas in general are vital personal characteristics to me.

What excites you most about spending your Summer Internship as a Mojo?

Being able to work with brilliant engineers (who are also great people based on the interactions I've had thus far) is the most exciting aspect of the internship for me. A corollary of this is that I'm also very excited to build cool, inventive features with my coworkers.

You’ve been banished to a deserted island with—gasp—no Internet, but lots of power outlets. What one piece of technology would you bring?

A Wilson volleyball.

What are some of your other interests?

I love to sail (racing), drive, play guitar, play poker, play video games, go diving, go mini golfing, go bowling, and go on adventures to random places that I've never been to before.



Ben BazykBen Bazyk, Software Development Intern, PVD Office

Where are you attending school and what is your major/focus?

I'm going into my senior year at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, and majoring in Computer Engineering

What is the most interesting or challenging project on which you ever worked?

I've spent a lot of time designing games in different languages for my younger cousins. The most interesting and challenging one involved synching each piece of the game up with the music (which required me to become familiar with other audio editor software too)

What personal characteristics do you feel are necessary to be a successful software engineer?

Persistence. Some problems are just going to take unexpectedly longer than others to work through. Persistence is accepting that, and working through it.

What excites you most about spending your Summer Internship as a Mojo?

Playing around with integrated systems projects is certainly the best way for me to find my niche in the world of programming.

You’ve been banished to a deserted island with—gasp—no Internet, but lots of power outlets. What one piece of technology would you bring?

Hmmm some kind of game that I wouldn't get bored with...maybe a chess engine?

What are some of your other interests?

I love to do anything with friends: basketball, board games, video games, or watching a movie (while talking over it the whole time of course).
