Five9 Summer Intern Spotlight Series: Nathan Stephenson
This summer, Five9 was pleased to welcome 58 interns to the intern class of 2022! These bright, young professionals have brought new perspectives into their work at Five9 while developing their talents with the Five9 team. The internship program encourages growth, learning, and contribution under the motto “Do Great Things." We look forward to witnessing our interns’ achievements throughout the summer and allowing them to grow, learn, and contribute in their own unique ways.
In celebration of National Intern Day on July 28th, we wanted to highlight some of our incredible interns, like Nathan, and how Five9 has made an impact on them.
Meet Nathan Stephenson, this summer’s Data Analyst intern. Nathan works with the Sales team to ensure that account managers have all the correct information for their accounts and that they’re informed on any trends that could affect their duties. His work gives Five9 customers the correct channels to interact with their respective account managers and allows account managers to better advise their customers. Although this is not Nathan’s first internship, he believes that his work with Five9 and the Sales team has allowed him to expand his knowledge and creativity. “It’s given me more confidence in my judgement and improved my ability to problem solve in a business setting,” Nathan says.
Nathan’s time at Five9 has allowed him to gain a deeper understanding of maintaining professionalism while working with a team to achieve their goals, one of Five9’s key values. “Any time you have a question or need help understanding something, there is someone willing to go the extra mile to help you achieve your goals,” Nathan says. “It creates an environment where co-workers are excited to see you succeed, and if you fall short on a task, your team is there to pick you up and encourage you to keep pushing forward!”
Like many other interns, Nathan’s experience with the Five9 team has been a highlight of his internship. The Five9 culture has helped him see the value in his work and how the company encourages every employee. Five9 continuously uplifts the interns and provides many opportunities for growth and learning throughout the summer program. Between social events and speaker series, interns get to build connections with employees and learn in many ways. “I enjoy every interaction with co-workers, and Five9 empowers their employees to solve problems in creative ways. I believe I am valued for my knowledge of data science, and I am given the tools necessary to create an actual impact within my team.”
