Antonio had always dreamt of landing a job in Silicon Valley. In late 2019 while looking for an internship for his master’s thesis, Antonio happened to hear about Startuplifers at Slush, a startup event held in Helsinki. Despite knowing that landing a job as a thesis worker in the US could be challenging, he decided to apply. Startuplifers helped Antonio to connect with Elevate Labs, a startup developing a brain training tool designed to build communication and analytical skills. After impressing during his interviews, the company offered him an internship as an iOS software engineering intern and he accepted the offer. Soon after being hired and moving to San Francisco, the Covid-19 pandemic swept across the US forcing companies, including Elevate Labs, to shift to remote work. Tune in now to hear Antonio's whole story from working at Elevate Labs, onboarding remotely, moving back to Europe, practicalities of working for a US based company, and more!
