At Harness, our interns are valued contributors to our mission to confidently deliver software with velocity – without compromising quality, reliability, security, or efficiency. With offices all over the globe, we have numerous opportunities for college students to gain real-world, hands-on experience learning from our talented teams.
This summer, we welcomed Siddhi Bansal, a returning intern, and Ram Potham, who both collaborated with their teams on a number of impactful projects. Siddhi and Ram share some highlights from their internship experiences and the projects they worked on below.
- Name: Siddhi Bansal
- College: University of Texas at Austin
- Major: Computer Science
- Hobbies/Interests: Reading, biking, baking, puzzles
During my time at Harness, I interned in the Product Management and Engineering departments where I worked on developing dashboards that provide software delivery insights. These reports help customers easily analyze and identify bottlenecks in their development cycle. Through this project, I learned how data is transported from one source to another through a variety of different software, while also identifying the most effective ways to visualize data. Additionally, I gained a deeper understanding of the software development lifecycles, which gives me insights into how code is deployed, integrated, and tested after it’s ready.
Interning at Harness has given me a greater exposure to the corporate environment. It has not only provided me with technical skills, but also interpersonal skills that I can utilize in all my future endeavors. What I love about Harness is the open-minded atmosphere that the company creates for its employees through a robust support network and collaborative team that is motivated to help everyone succeed.
- Name: Ram Potham
- College: Carnegie Mellon University
- Major: Artificial Intelligence and Computational Biology
- Hobbies/Interests: Bowling, hanging out with friends, board games, video games
I interned at Harness building artificial intelligence/machine learning models, focusing on forecasting and anomaly detection with time series data. The work and learning I did at Harness is what I want to do in the future, so I have loved my internship experience!
As companies continue to scale their cloud consumption, effectively managing cloud costs is critical. A key capability necessary for effectively managing cloud costs is the ability to automatically detect anomalies in cloud spend. As part of my internship, I helped to write a blog on how companies can leverage AI/ML to proactively detect cloud spend anomalies. This empowers companies to proactively prevent adverse cloud cost impact by addressing anomalous consumption of cloud services and resources in time
I love that Harness is a company that understands and takes advantage of the growing field of AI/ML. This allows me to personally see it in action and how it’s changing the industry.
