"Interning at ProgressSoft during the summer provided me with an opportunity to develop my software engineering skills. I was appointed with the task of developing a team video chat application that is meant to be used internally in order to facilitate communication between teams. My mentor Mahmoud Abu Zamel was extremely helpful from Day 1, providing me with guidance and teaching me about the things that were needed in order for me to develop the application. My teammates were also always ready to give me advice with regards to any issues I had, and the work environment was highly collaborative and friendly at the company. Overall, I had a very positive and rewarding internship experience at ProgressSoft and would highly recommend interning there!"

"My internship at ProgressSoft during Summer 2015 was a memorable experience. It was my first real life job, but more importantly, a great opportunity that helped me acquire and develop a number of skills, after working in a company specialized in software development. The atmosphere at ProgressSoft was quite warm, receptive and supportive, on managerial, technical and administrative levels. I have learnt a lot of important concepts through the tasks that I was given during my internship. The sense of usefulness, achievement and self-confidence was an added bonus.

I can’t thank ProgressSoft and the staff enough for the enjoyable and rewarding experience, and I feel very lucky to have started my series of internships with them. Wishing everyone at ProgressSoft continued progress and success"

"I'm very grateful for the opportunity at ProgressSoft. I learned a ton about the agile methodology and test-driven development. I also enjoyed working with everyone on the team! One thing I am thankful for is the feedback and guidance that I constantly received from my teammates. They were very important to me as an intern to grow. On a side note, I also miss the fun times and outings we had in Jordan!"

For the first time, I was involved in a professional agile software development environment where I learned more about software design patterns and principles. In addition to learning a new programming language, working with my team improved my communication and teamwork skills. The work environment was very welcoming and friendly, and the staff was always supportive and helpful.

"My internship at ProgressSoft for the duration of 2 months was very useful and has helped me improve my programming skills in Java. I have gained experiences in pair programming and worked in a well-organized agile software development team. A big advantage is that mentors are programmers with many years of experience in ProgressSoft Corporation. As a non-Arabic speaker, I can highlight that all team communications and stand-up meetings were conducted in English to accommodate for myself. I am really satisfied with every day spent with the people and work in ProgressSoft."

"Interning at ProgressSoft has been my first experience in the professional world of software development and it has been crucial in my development as a programmer.

"My 2017 and 2018 summer internships at ProgressSoft Corporation in Jordan provided me with valuable hands-on experience about the Business field. It has given me the opportunity to see much more about the Business Development sector than I am able to learn in the classroom. I have developed many skills by conducting market research and identifying potential business partnerships.

I also benefited from attending training programs and meetings and have enjoyed the friendship that was developed with my colleagues during my time here. Other things that I have valued most about my internship here include the nice and supportive working environment and the company’s commitment to providing excellent services to its customers."

"During my internship at ProgressSoft, I got first-hand insights into the daily activities of different business units spanning from technical support to project management and business development. I also had the opportunity to attend meetings with high-profile clients and stakeholders, work as part of a dedicated Scrum team, and collaborate on a side project directly with the CTO. Getting this kind of exposure early on in my career has definitely made this experience one of the most rewarding yet!"
