Salomé is a Product Delivery intern at Cosmo Tech. She answered our questions from the Cosmo Tech headquarters in Lyon, France.
What’s your background and how did you end up at Cosmo Tech?
I am currently at Cosmo Tech for my end-of-study internship for my engineering degree. I studied Applied Mathematics at INSA de Rouen, where I was specifically interested in Data Science. We often talk about Artificial Intelligence in the media (which I also studied at school) and I thought it would be interesting to learn to make predictions from modeling. That’s how I was attracted to Cosmo Tech. At first, I didn’t have any intention to be so far away from home, but Lyon seemed like a dynamic city, and I haven’t been disappointed!
What kind of projects have you been working on?
Since arriving at Cosmo Tech, I have been helping the Product Delivery team finalize the last steps of a two-year project. Every day, the eight members of my team interact with each other, as well as with other sectors, to deliver a rail network model to one of our clients. My first task was to build the compliance tests to make sure the behavior of the model respected the client’s demands. After that was done, I moved on to over configuring systemic tests that can reveal model’s flaws and analyzing the results.
What is something that you will take away from this internship?
This experience gave me the opportunity to learn to work with a huge team on a project with advanced architecture, where a survey of such dimensions cannot be led at school. I discovered and learned to use plenty of new technologies. Also, working in a startup allows you to diversify your interactions and I was able to talk and learn about every field, team, and department that forms the company. Finally, the heterogeneous histories, origins, and points of view of my colleagues made it a pleasure to come to work every day.
