Written by Vanessa August 14, 2014

Spokeo is proud to introduce each of the five interns participating in the inaugural Spokeo internship program. For more details about the program visit: Introducing the Spokeo Interns. To inquire about participating in future internship programs please email jobs@spokeo.com.


Name: Ashwin Sreenivas

Nickname: “The Brain”

School: Stanford University

Major: Computer Science

Expected Graduation: Summer of 2017

Biggest Personal Accomplishment: I was part of India’s International Science Olympiads team and won two gold medals. (India actually finished second my year. We came in behind Chinese Taipei and ahead of Russia)

Career Aspirations: I’m not fully sure just yet, but I do know that they involve CS and big data

What have you worked on this summer? We’re working on several SEO projects, the Family.me blog and a new project we’re itching to start.

Best Spokeo moment so far? Just meeting and speaking to the amazing people at Spokeo has made my summer! Special shoutout to Byron and Dongwoo, our managers, and Chris and Austin our mentors :)

Do you have any advice for next year’s interns? Don’t stress about not being able to do everything. Everyone here, from the managers and engineers, to your fellow interns, are eager to help and you’ll be up and running in no time, even if you come in with next to no web development experience (like me).
