HP Vertica’s Summer Intern program is up to 9 interns this year. HP Vertica has experienced tremendous growth recently with 76 new employees hired this year alone. Several of the interns are working on projects to be released with the next version of Vertica, while others are helping with the organization and marketing of the first ever HP Vertica Big Data Conference from August 5th-7th.
Sunday June 23rd was the second annual intern hiking trip. This year’s HP Vertica summer interns, their mentors, managers and some family members ventured out to Blue Hills Reservation, a Massachusetts State Park in Norfolk County. With bags of trail mix, water bottles and plenty of sunscreen, the group trekked up a mile to the peak for a beautiful view point.
The group finished off a fun, but hot, day with food at the Hillside Pub in Canton. Individuals from various teams across HP Vertica had the chance to catch up, share what they are working on and enjoy each other’s company!
