JBKnowledge Intern Insight: Matt Bienek
My name is Matt Bienek, Class of 2015 at Texas A&M University, and one of six new interns here in the JBKnowledge internship program. I have been given the privilege to be a Product Development Intern and work on building out the public registry of subcontractors in our construction bid software product SmartBidNet. I currently assist the Product Division Director, Diego Heinrich, and Team Lead, Rodrigo Arteaga, and work with fellow Product Development Intern, Sai Krishna Chitneni. Being in the second week of my internship, it feels great because I feel like I am getting the hang of things around the office as well as understanding exactly what our goal is for the project I am working on this summer. This was Sai’s first week here at JBKnowledge. It has been tremendous being able to work together and get to know each other a little more. I am positive we will make a great team throughout the summer and semesters to come.
We are all very lucky interns because we joined JBKnowledge at an exciting time. Next week at this time, we will be moving into our brand new office building. With the new offices and much more space to come, you can just feel the excitement in the air and how eager everybody is to make the big move!
Since I’ve been here at JBKnowledge, I have been working on our latest “Big Data” project. This has been very interesting to me because I have been able to learn how organizing Big Data for our general contractor clients will significantly help them improve their construction bid process. I have also been creating an updated matrix with all of this information to help the team see which information we have and which information we still need. I am looking forward to diving deeper and developing this aspect of our database throughout the summer.
Working here at JBKnowledge for the past two weeks has been compelling and exciting. It feels great coming to work every day in a positive environment where all of us new interns are welcomed with open arms. James Benham, our President, has set the bar high. All of us come in every day working hard knowing what he expects from us to help stay ahead of our competitors. I am anxiously looking forward to all of the opportunities that this internship will bring to me. I know that I will be learning a lot about time management and our product SmartBidNet. I am honored to work for such a rare and determined company.
