“Working at Shiloh has been such a pleasure. It is full of believers that not only fellowship together but work hard to build digital servants that serve the Body of Christ so they may serve God”

Paul

I was placed on a small team with an awesome mentor who helped me develop my programming skills and taught me how to think like a software engineer. The best part of the internship was that I was able to be a part of a company who places the kingdom of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ first over all other priorities.
