Hey Guys! My name is Radhika Agarwal. I am a rising senior at Washington University in St. Louis, studying Systems Engineering with minors in Biomedical Physics and Robotics.
I’m thrilled to be working at Spire this summer! Working at an up-and-coming tech startup has always been a dream of mine. There were many reasons I was drawn to Spire, but my favorite things about working here so far are my awesome and passionate colleagues, and the opportunity to work on many different projects – whether they’re engineering-related projects or projects in areas I’ve never explored before.
This week alone, I’ve been involved in about 6 separate projects – engineering builds, force testing, material testing, sourcing materials, optimizing metal plating processes, and applying for certifications – and it’s only Thursday as I write this.
Although joining work during launch week meant my first week at work was a bit crazier than most, I love the excitement and intensity of the environment and am really looking forward to a summer of learning and fun. I’m excited to be helping make Spire the best device it can be.
My fellow interns and I will be maintaining an intern diary this summer, giving you an inside look behind the scenes at Spire. Stay tuned for more.
