Working at Tamr: Meet our Summer Interns

Last month, we posted about what it’s like to work at Tamr — from our office vibe to the way we focus on career growth and collaboration. At Tamr, professional development is a cornerstone of our values, and one of the ways we ensure this comes to life is through a robust internship program. So this month, we’d like to introduce you to some of our newest Tamrs: our 2019 summer interns. We’ll let them take it from here.

Caspian Ahlberg

Hello! I’m Caspian and I’m from Watertown, Massachusetts. I am a rising junior at Concord Academy, and in my free time I longboard and practice my karate. This summer, I am working on the Unify Python Client.

I’m excited to be working at Tamr because I’ve never worked in an office before, and with this being my first internship, it’s a fun new experience for me!

 

 

 

Charlotte Moremen

Hello! I’m Charlotte Moremen, and I’m a software engineering intern working at Tamr. I graduated a few weeks ago from Milton Academy, and will start at Pomona college in the fall with an intended double major of Computer Science and Spanish Literature. I love the outdoors, hiking with my dog Zeba, traveling, reading (currently reading Sapiens: A History of Humankind), and comedy. Before Tamr, I worked as a camp counselor at Camp Runoia in Maine, where I got certifications in lifeguarding, teaching archery, and as a Junior Maine Guide. 

I’m so excited to be working at Tamr and seeing what computer science is like outside of the classroom!

 

 

Frances Smyth

I’m originally from Virginia, and am a rising junior studying Management Information Systems and Marketing at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. In my free time, I run a digital women’s clothing store called “Quality Labels” and serve as both VP of practice and Head of Inbound Marketing at the Guerrilla Marketing Society. 

I have been working with the Growth Team on projects such as late stage loss analysis, vertical specific nurture campaign development, social media platform management, and event marketing logistics.  I’m excited to be working at Tamr because not only is there a lot of opportunity to learn, but also to challenge myself with projects that require responsibility and critical thinking. 

 

Frankie HolzapfelFrankie Holzapfel

I’m Frankie, and I’m from Omaha, Nebraska. I’m a junior at the University of Nebraska Omaha where I’m studying computer science. In my free time I enjoy golfing and watching/following sports. 

This Summer I will be with the DevOps team, working on a variety of projects. The first project I worked on was improving the notifications for build configurations on our continuous integration software. I’m excited to be at Tamr because I am surrounded by very smart and helpful people. I’ve been met with challenging and engaging projects that have allowed me to both learn new things and further my skills. One of Tamr’s goals is to provide every employee with professional development, and it is readily apparent that this goal is taken seriously. I’ve been encouraged to learn and explore different software and technology. 

 

Harrison PellerinHarrison Pellerin

My name is Harrison Pellerin, I’m excited to join Tamr for the summer. I’ll be working with the Solutions team as a Product Marketing Intern. 

I’m originally from Hebron, Connecticut and I’m a rising senior at Bowdoin College where I’m majoring in History. I spend as much of my spare time as I can playing rugby, watching rugby, and/or thinking about rugby but I also enjoy religiously following “Jeopardy!”, cooking new things, and keeping up with Boston sports.

I’m thrilled to be at Tamr because of the talented, kind people I’m working with and the exciting tech that they’re developing. In my first week here, everyone in the office has been welcoming and helpful, it’s really something to look forward to everyday.

 

Julia McClellanJulia McClellan

I’m Julia, and I’m a rising junior at Brown, majoring in computer science and possibly linguistics. I love running, and am one of the captains of the Brown Running Club.

I’m an intern in presales, so I’m working on various projects to help improve demos and automate parts of the presales process.

I interned at Tamr last summer as well, and I’m excited to be back! Everyone here is so friendly, and it’s interesting to see how much the company has grown.

 

Lincoln HartnettLincoln Hartnett

I’m from Portsmouth, NH and have lived in New England most of my life. I have one year left in an undergraduate economics degree—a joint program in which I spend two years at William & Mary (VA) and two years at St Andrews (Scotland). Two of my many loves are cooking with friends and playing guitar. 

I’m working with the Solutions team for the summer. One of my main projects will be creating a data repository, organizing datasets that are currently in use for demos and finding new datasets to fill in the gaps. More than anything, I’m excited to be at Tamr to work with a wonderfully smart and clever group of people. The banter, for example, is outstanding. When a group like this comes together, good things come out and quality work ensues. I’m looking forward to playing my part.

 

Nelson AndradeNelson Andrade

Hi, my name is Nelson Andrade and I am a rising senior at Bowdoin College, where I am studying Computer Science and Sociology. A few of my many interests and passions are graphic design, playing soccer (or sports, in general), and window-shopping sneakers. This summer, I will be interning at Tamr as a Software Engineer, specifically working on the Unify-Client-Python project. I am absolutely stoked to be working at Tamr and alongside such brilliant people!

 

Tina NooraniTina Noorani

My name is Tina and I’m a San Francisco Bay Area native in Boston completing my BS in Computer Science & Design at Northeastern University. 

At Tamr, I’m a software developer co-op. I have been working primarily on front-end development and am currently working on implementing the functionality of commenting on data records throughout the Unify product. When I’m not working, I enjoy finding new noodle restaurants to try with friends, going to concerts, and cycling!

Tamr is a very special place to work at, this company is filled with brilliant minds who are incredibly helpful and great teachers. My experience thus far has been far beyond valuable. Although I am a co-op, the company has made me feel like I am a part of the team and that my work is important and impactful.
