I had the pleasure of visiting the AKQA Atlanta offices over on 10 Tenth (right near Georgia Tech campus) yesterday and I had a blast meeting the Creative Director as well as some of the other HR staff.
Besides the very cool work that they’ve done globally they have some incredibly strong roots with Atlanta-based companies, like Delta (and the Delta mobile app is actually quite decent – I use it all the time for my travels!).
The point of meeting up with these very cool companies is to establish relationships that will matter for our students – in particular, opportunities for our students to interface, learn from, and be hired by these great companies.
We take this responsibility very seriously because we only align with companies that have the same ethos and approach to not only hiring but their work in general and the quality of engineering that they need.
The team over at AKQA is pretty legit – they’ve got a growing campus and a very family-like atmosphere with a small, agile, and impactful team that is getting some very neat stuff done. For our students interested in working in an exciting and project-based environment with new technical challenges consistently this might be the right spot to land post-graduation.
And I’ll be the first to make an introduction to them and their team. I can’t wait for many of you to meet them! We’ll plan on visiting their offices and perhaps even holding a class (or two?!) in their space so you get a feel for how they do their work, their culture, and environment.
