MY SILICON VALLEY INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCE
In Summer 2014 I got the chance to work in one of Silicon Valleys most aspiring Startups.
Nest Labs Inc. is a home automation company that was founded by former Apple engineers Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers in 2010. Nest reinvents unloved but important home products, like the thermostat and the smoke alarm. They focus on simple, beautiful and thoughtful hardware and services. In 2014 Nest got acquired by Google and is now an independent part of the Alphabet holding.

Summer 2014 in California
"Let's get interns in the Valley" – It started as a "dumb" thought but turned out as the best idea we've ever brought to live. We is Fred Fahlke and myself. As we teamed up back in 2012 we both began our M.A. at HAWK Hildesheim. It was a perfect fit to create outstanding projects. One of those was the application itself that we've build to apply at Silicon Valleys tech companys. We decided not to go the common way and developed a website that automatically changes the color and some text elements depending on the company the specific application was made for.
The application worked out and I got the privilege to work within the amazing User Experience Design Team at Nest.
