MineralTree Employee Spotlight: Engineering Co-Ops

About MineralTree

“With new people, funding, and opportunities coming to MineralTree every day, the culture in the office is defined by people that are excited by the work they’re doing and the opportunities that lie ahead in the future.

Co-Op season has been in full swing at MineralTree, and the time has flown by before our eyes. This past semester, we had the pleasure of bringing on three Software Engineering Co-Ops from Northeastern University – Joon Lee, Megan Lau, and Liam Moynihan (pictured from left to right). Our Co-Ops have been fully immersed on their teams and have made a significant impact thus far, taking ownership of core projects and programs that are integral to our engineering team’s initiatives. Learn all about them and their experience at MineralTree in this month’s employee spotlight.
