Bashpole Software, Inc., a 100% Remote Work Company

Software Engineering Internship Season 1.A

June - September 2021 • North Webster, IN

What I liked

My internship at Bashpole was an amazing learning experience and very rewarding. As my first industry-level internship, I feel that the work given to me was challenging yet manageable. I was able to learn many new skills in Java, HTML, and CSS as well as working with new software like AWS EC2. Benjamin Ashpole was a great manager and mentor and always had time to help his interns with any issues they may have with their projects. Having a mentor who really cares about his interns was an especially welcoming quality of my internship. Looking back, I can truthfully say that this internship has prepared me well for any future software engineering jobs I may get.

Marketing Consulting 1.C Intern: UI/UX for Web Applications and Mobile Apps

June - September 2021 • North Webster, IN

What I liked

Since even before the beginning of my time at Bashpole, the company page on our website explicitly states this will not be an internship for those who are expecting the rigor of a coffee-fetching internship. Bashpole has followed through their promise of a meaningful and fully-immersive experience in which interns learn a lot about the company, expectations of their role, and themselves as an employee in the workforce. By following through on their promise, supervisors value honesty and speaking up when there is a need to further delve into a topic, instruction, etc… I have found that the supervisors and interns alike see every employee as a human capable of great contributions. One of the ultimate pleasures I have had working here is working with employees who have a willingness to drop what they are doing and help others who request their assistance.

Business Intern

June - September 2021 • Dresher, PA

What I liked

Bashpole has not only provided an exceptional professional experience as a business intern, but also an invaluable company culture that is crucial for growth. I had the pleasure of working and collaborating with an extremely diverse team from all over the world, as well as the CEO himself in weekly meetings. As a business intern, I had the opportunity to interview directors and executives of several nonprofits across the nation, as well as participate in sales meetings and discussions from other departments. I had the opportunity to share and work on my own thoughts and ideas through discussion with Ben and other teammates. Bashpole fosters an encouraging and growth-oriented culture that is critical to any aspiring team member, new to the workforce or not.

Business Intern

June - August 2021 • Washington, DC

What I liked

As an intern, I really appreciated the help of my teammates, and I think teamwork played an important role in my internship. Also, since the case study was a new task for the whole team, I very much enjoyed aggregating the team’s ideas to show them in the case study. Then, during the monthly meeting with clients, it was very satisfying to hear the clients praising the case study as good work.

What I wish was different

Improve inter-team communication.

Marketing Intern

May - July 2021 • North Webster, IN

What I liked

My experience this summer at Bashpole was amazing! As a Marketing Intern, I was able to learn a lot of valuable skills I can apply to in my career. With hands-on training and getting feedback from Ben, I was able to use that to further enhance my skills. I worked on tasks that allowed me to enhance my knowledge and expertise in creating ads. With this internship, I will be able to take the knowledge that I have gained to keep on using for my future career. At Bashpole, it was nothing but a great environment to work with and great mentors like Ben who is there to give valuable feedback to help you succeed.

Nothing, the internship was well organized.

Advice

There's training provided which is very helpful and you can schedule network meetings with your team which I found very helpful and useful.

Software Engineering Internship Season 1.A

January - June 2021 • North Webster, IN

What I liked

During my 6-months internship, I learned a lot of things not only related to software development (i.e. Database connection, Tomcat server, common web development programming languages...), but also some useful tips and habitats for how to become a professional person in my future career. From weekly meetings with Ben and other team members, everyone reports their updates and any concerns for the current stage of the project. If someone has specific issues with debugging or future tasks, they can always schedule another meeting with Ben or other teammates. The scheduling method is also straightforward through Google Calendar. From my perspective, everyone is motivating and always be willing to help each other in the team, which is a really grateful environment for collaborations.

What I wish was different

Besides the team meeting, we also have all- hands meetings with other departments twice a week. During that meeting, we will get the training and discussion for common tips during the work, like email write-up formats, interview tips, coding tips, meeting preparation, and so on.

Advice

Unlike normal college class works, you need to push yourself on self-learning and to be always motivated for your company projects.
