Coming all the way from Spain especially to complete his internship at Labman, Joan is hoping to further his knowledge and experience in Computer Science. Having helped out on real projects and applied his personal skills, he returns to university in Spain this month to complete his degree. Good luck Joan!

I came to Labman 3 years ago and since then I’ve wanted to come back for more, last time I learned a lot about electronics, and it helped me understand what I really wanted to study which is Computer Science.

Labman is a really cool place to work, there is always something to do from the amazing robots to the fun times at lunch break including Labfest, amazing party for the people, the food, the drinks and the games.

This time I’ve been able to explore other fields that I wouldn’t have been able to know like designing a robot idea for a client from the ground up. Working with the sales teams for TIDAS finding out how much work, effort and passion needs to be put into each sale, as we say the average time is 9 months from first cold call until the customer buys so it’s like a baby. Also, I’ve been able to work closely with the marketing team to create a new approach on the Spanish speaking countries to get closer to this huge market.

To end I’d like to say that what makes Labman great is the people you get to meet that I hope to keep in touch with. In the moments where
I was a bit disoriented because I was doing something new and didn’t know how to approach it there was someone willing to help or that could guide in the right direction.
