Catherine Teebay & Jeanette Shaw
Program Manager/Director of Government Relations


Forth is a non-profit public-private partnership founded to promote, support, the electric vehicle industry and to increase the adoption of clean transportation options in the Pacific Northwest. Zach leads Forth’s mobility programs bringing together collaborators and stakeholders to design and lead clean transportation projects. Zach has an MBA from Marylhurst University. Jeanette Shaw, Director of Government Relations, joins Zach.




What we look for: For program interns, we look for strong writing and communication skills, acute attention to details, interns who enjoy engaging with the public and working on educational outreach, an interest in electric vehicles, advanced transportation and associated technologies, equity, and nonprofit management. We also look for interns who are enthusiastic and bilingual--specifically, individuals who are fluent in languages more often spoken in underserved communities in Portland like Spanish, Somali, and Vietnamese. For full-time positions we look for many of these same qualities, but the specific position dictates what additional qualities we are seeking.


Josh Hoak '08 & Phil Quitslund '92
Software Developer & SE Site Lead


Join two Reedies who work for Google. Josh is Seattle-based and Phil is in Portland. They'll both be at the same table for the event.

Josh: I was a math major at Reed (Class of '09). After I graduated, I improved my CS skills by taking a year of classes at PSU. After that, I moved to Boulder and got a job at a startup optimizing ads. A year later, I applied to Google and I have been working here ever since (6 years so far).

Phil: In '88 I moved to PDX from Boston for what I expected to be a short stop but have been here ever since. After graduating in Philosophy in '92, I played in bands, waited tables, washed dishes and generally goofed around before going back to school in CS, first at PSU then OGI where I did a bunch of research around programming languages and developer tools before landing a job doing the same for a small PDX-based developer tool company (Instantiations). We were acquired by Google and have been happily there working on developer tools for the last 7+ years: spending the last ~6 working on the Dart programming language, most recently with a focus on supporting a new mobile app SDK called Flutter. Besides my day job as an engineer, I also serve as the PDX Google office Site Lead.


Josh: Google's intern process is fairly involved and requires significant prep / planning ahead. Before applying, students should make sure that they: - Are pursing a computer Science degree or other another technical background. - Have a strong background in algorithms - Have some concrete examples of programming application, which could include jobs, volunteering, personal projects, programming competitions, etc.

Phil: Energy and an an eagerness to learn.


Kat Henson '93 & Ella Smith '16
Director of Merger and Acquisitions Quality & Interior Design Intern


Ask two Reedies about Intel!

 Kat:  In 1994, Reed found an internship for me in Intel’s device physics lab studying transistor reliability.  I’m grateful, and enjoy paying it forward.  These days I work with teams developing technology for automobiles, drones, virtual reality and artificial intelligence.  In mergers & acquisitions, I help Intel choose wisely and create value rapidly.  Over the years I’ve explored and learned from many disciplines in both technical and management roles.  I would encourage Reedies to retain their curiosity, creativity, critical thinking and sense of wonder throughout their careers.

Ella: Graduated from Reed 2016 with interdisciplinary Russian-Art major. Professional experience includes a designing a logo for the University of Gothenburg; being an office assistant at an accident reconstruction firm in Austin, TX; and managing the Reed College Student Print Shoppe. I've been at Intel one year in two groups and two positions: operations and in office standards.


Kat:  A chance to return the favor to connect students to intern or full time positions.  Reedies thrive here.  Intel invents at the boundaries of technology to make amazing experiences possible for business and society.  What future do you want to create?

Ellal: I would highly advise current Reedies to seek Intel internships over the summers. They come in all shape and sizes, so many different backgrounds can find a place. It's a good way to acclimate to the culture before diving into a full-time position. Additionally, it's an opportunity to grow a network before joining full-time, in case another post-internship internal opportunity arises that you might not have seen otherwise. Intel also loves converting interns to full-time employees when headcount allocations allow. Those conversions are probably more tailored to the work you did in your internship, as opposed to a fresh full-time listing where you may only meet some requirements and/or be up against a much bigger pool of external applicants. Technical experience is a huge plus at Intel. Engineers have opportunities in dozens of fields encompassing every stage of wafer production, computer science, construction, and business/PM roles, among all the other things that happen at a huge company like Intel. I can talk a little about my observations managing technical teams, since that was my first internship's scope. Speaking personally about my nontechnical experience, some skills that have proven useful are knowing the whole Adobe suite inside and out, AutoCAD, modeling/rendering programs, and the entire Microsoft Office suite. More abstract skills such as the ability of collaborate, self-direct, articulate ideas, integrate feedback, and take risks have been integral to contributing value to my team. It is likely you'll have may roles in an Intel position, so being adaptable is huge.

Julie Martin
I graduated from Reed this May with an economics degree, and I’m currently a research associate at M Science. Throughout my time at Reed, I craved the opportunity to apply the skills I learned to messy, real-world data: and all the N/As and typos that come with them. After working with data for public and private companies large and small, I came across M Science, which struck my ideal balance between finance and tech.  Here, I’m able not only to apply the statistics coursework I loved, but also learn everyday about how our research matters.

M Science is a data-driven research and analytics firm, uncovering new insights for leading financial institutions and corporations. We come to work every day to create actionable insights from alternative data. M Science is revolutionizing research, discovering new data sets and pioneering methodologies to provide actionable intelligence. Our research teams have decades of experience working with massive amounts of unstructured data in near real-time to discern critical insights that help clients make smarter, more informed decisions. We combine the best of finance, data and technology to create a truly unique value proposition for both financial services firms and major corporations.

M Science was founded as Majestic Research in 2002 and in 2016 was spun out to form M Science, a portfolio company of Leucadia National Corporation (NYSE: LUK).

The program’s graduates have gone on to lead local and national civic organizations, and to hold staff roles in The White House, US Congressional offices, Oregon’s Governor, Secretary of State, Treasurer, legislative offices, and multiple City of Portland, Multnomah County and Metro offices. After years of managing youth-focused voter registration drives, Caitlin led the Bus Project team that developed a framework for passing a series of Oregon bills that would make voter registration in Oregon nearly universal – the crown jewel of which passed in March 2015 under the leadership of Gov. Kate Brown. While at the Bus Project, Caitlin served on the founding boards of The Mother PAC, a mother-led political group focused on supporting candidates who will be champions for women’s economic security, and Oregon Voice, a non-profit creating infrastructure for progressive civic organizations around the state.
