Summer 2021 Internships

Here at Bio::Neos we recognize the importance of hands-on learning and providing post-secondary opportunities for students in our community. Throughout our internship program, high school and college students have the chance to work both collaboratively and independently on different projects ranging from internal backup systems to client projects. Once completed, interns understand that programming careers can be fun and exciting; and gain a renewed motivation to pursue more computer science internships and job shadowing opportunities in the future.

This fall, our team began a new initiative we named Team Talks. Team Talks are monthly discussions that focus on team building, health, mental wellbeing, and professional development. Team Talks are highly encouraged for all team members. Individually each team member reads or watches the supplementary materials. On the first Friday of each month, we have set aside 30 minutes to discuss as a team and share perspectives.

Digital Wellness in the Workplace

Have you sent a work email while in bed? When you should be, going to bed? 55% of Americans check their work email after 11:00 pm. Too many of this sounds outrageous and probably past our bedtime, but this is the new norm with the majority of the workplace being online due to the covid-19 pandemic or being a tech company. While there are countless benefits to working remotely (no commute, not sharing germs, and endless kitty or puppy cuddles) employees are feeling burnt out more than ever.

The Transition from Education to Industry: Thoughts from a Junior Dev

The world of software is a vast and erratic one, with constant improvements to the tools and technologies developers use everyday. In such a fluctuating field, it is no wonder that colleges and universities focus software related coursework on fundamentals such as programming languages and basic algorithms. Recent grads can then find themselves reeling upon graduating and entering the tech field, where an expansive portfolio and diverse skill-set are valued much more highly than a degree alone.

2020 in Review

2020 What a doozy! We want to pause for a moment and reflect on what the year held. The reality is that this past year had its full share of ups and especially downs for each of us. But we firmly believe that as we look back there is much to learn and much to be thankful for.

Grant Funding Accelerates Iowa Startup

We love celebrating the successes of our clients, and believe now it is more important than ever to acknowledge these solid wins when there is so much concern and anxiety in our current environment. In this spirit, I would like to tell you a little bit about a startup company from the western side of Iowa that we are working with closely as a technology partner.

16th Anniversary!

I realize that this is a bit late, but as we all know, it’s been a crazy year! Despite this, we still want to pause and reflect back and celebrate that in 2020, we have now passed 16 years in business (January 27th, so we are actually almost at 16.5 years)! It’s hard to believe how quickly time races by, but Mike and I want to take a moment to reflect on where we’ve been and look ahead to what’s to come.
