I worked at Coursera as an iOS intern during the Fall 2014 term. It was my first time working in Silicon Valley, and I was looking forward to meeting many smart engineers working at the cutting edge of the software industry. I found this in my internship at Coursera, working alongside some of the most inspiring engineers I'd met thus far. During my four months, I focused on features around internal tooling, event tracking, and the lecture video player. I learned a ton of iOS development thanks to working closely with my mentor and teammates, as well as attending meet ups in the Bay Area.
There's a lot going on everyday at Coursera across all the different teams, but one thing is constant-a lot of the employees empathize with the mission of making online education accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world.
