Our SCI team is at the core of our success and our interns are an integral part of building the technology and systems powering our machine learning models and financial products. Interns join us for a period of 3 months on average and work on a variety of timely projects and problems that have a direct impact on the development of our business. Learn about our recent cohort of international interns from ESADE Business School in Barcelona, Spain.


Where is your hometown?River Intern

Chongqing, China

How did you find out about SCI?

Through a project between ESADE Business School and Spartan Capital Intelligence. 

What is your role in the internship and what have you been learning thus far?

I write Python scripts to automate data tag alignment and deploy data crawlers on AWS. During this pandemic, it has not been easy to deal with remote communication and cooperation especially with a time difference. I found my own role and exercised my ability to express myself by managing my time well, being patient and having a vision of the end goal.

What has been your favorite part of the internship?

It is undoubtedly the rare opportunity for me to combine my undergraduate financial expertise with my postgraduate business analysis knowledge.

Who is one person that inspires you to be the best version of yourself?

My father. He taught me that a person's success does not depend on accumulating more individual wealth than other people, but in developing ones own abilities. He has inspired me the most. 

What are your long-term (10+ years) and short-term (< 5 years) career goals?

My primary career goal is to be a financial analyst who gains proficiency in stock analysis and financial derivatives analysis. After accumulating more experience, I hope to become a fund manager, responsible for managing assets and developing a mutual fund portfolio.
