What Previous Interns Say About BossAlien

“I’ve learnt so much since I started my internship, how the content you learn is used and why it’s important. I’ve had the chance to input my ideas in to the project, and that my work has an impact on the project. Affecting design and everyone is really nice and welcoming, if you need help you simply need to ask or drop someone a message. Every day at BossAlien is interesting as there is usually always something going on. I think the biggest thing I’ve learnt is how no bug is ‘unfixable’.
