Let’s just say that even as our youngest technical guru intern, Joseph Griego is already getting quite a taste of what it’s like to work for a startup, already writing code and wiring up iPhone apps like a pro. He’s jumped in with both feet and keeps asking for more. After Joseph graduates from Academy, he plans on studying computer science and mathematics – a natural fit for someone who has already won third place nationally during the 2010 Science Olympiad National Tournament and took home a very cool first place win for his grade level in the 2008-2009 UNM-PNM Statewide Mathematics Competition. And when he’s not programming for APPCityLife, you’ll find him, well, programming – along with exploring digital art and all forms of math and physics.
“I chose APPCityLife for an internship because as a new startup in the mobile industry, it presents a unique opportunity not only to learn about the platform and its challenges and benefits, but also to learn what being a new company involves, and its own challenges.”
A self-proclaimed “typical nerd,” Joseph is refreshingly adept at finding his way around emerging technology and is already a dynamic team player. We think we’re pretty lucky to have this brainiac working with us.
