Co-op students at Primal Fusion

As I’ve mentioned often in this blog, I work at Primal Fusion. We’re doing some pretty cool stuff, some of which you can see in our alpha products. We have a committed group of folks in the shop, and we’re not afraid to take on tough problems. That’s not to say that we aren’t always open to getting help and hearing fresh ideas. One of the strategies that we employ in that regard is to hire students through the University of Waterloo’s co-op program.

As we approach the mid-way point of the current work term, it feels like a good time to reflect on what Primal Fusion gets from co-op, as well as on what students get from spending time at Primal Fusion.

We’re a still a small startup, and we can’t afford to waste resources. We need everyone who works here to contribute, and that includes our co-op students and interns. On the research and development side, that means we look for smart and engaged students to help us solve big problems for our products, not just take on side projects.

In exchange, our students get to do work that makes a valuable impact on real products. In some cases, the work that they do gets released in a product during the course of the work term. That’s quick validation of a job well done.

Are you a student looking for a fast-paced and challenging work term? Primal Fusion may be the place for you.
