Subject: Engineering/Creative Technology Interships w/The Lodge @ Wieden+Kennedy
My name is Grant Thomas -- I'm a creative technology lead with The Lodge @ Wieden + Kennedy and an OSU EECS alum.
The Lodge is the creative technology group at W+K -- we're a team of creative minded engineers and designers that work on projects ranging from mobile apps, to VR, platforms, installations, robotics, fabrication, electronics and more.
I'm reaching out because we're searching for candidates for a 3-month internship this summer -- specifically curious, creative engineers that want to make things and are willing to write code to get it done. A strong interest in a non-CS topic and the application of CS to that domain is ideal. Bottom line is we're looking for flexible, curious graduating seniors that want to come up with great ideas, prototype them, and hopefully carry them to completion.
I've attached details on W+K's internship program and pasted some links to our work below. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have about the work or anything else.
