Meet the Bricleir Interns

At Bricleir, we’re huge supporters of bringing on teammates who want to learn and grow together, which is why we’re excited to be hosting four new interns participating in the University of Notre Dame’s Silicon Valley Semester. This group will be helping us out with engineering and business development. Read on to learn a bit more about the folks helping out behind the scenes!

First Day for the Interns 🙂

Matthew Gregory

Hello, my name is Matthew Gregory and I am a junior computer science major from Louisville, Kentucky. On campus, I am very active in student government, having served on class council the past two years. I also participated in and led Student International Business Council projects, where we got to present social entrepreneurship-oriented projects to companies such as McKinsey and Google. Finally, I am a teacher assistant for sophomore CS classes and work in FinTech for ND’s Investment Office.

At Bricleir, I am one of the business development associates. Since this is my desirable career path, I am excited to learn the ins and outs of startup growth. Being able to gain consulting experience in one of the nation’s most resourceful, popular regions of Silicon Valley is a very unique opportunity. I hope to use this knowledge to be able to understand high-level corporate operations and the investing ecosystem.

Elton Chang

Hi! My name is Elton Chang and I am a junior Economics and Computing and Digital Technologies student. I am a third culture kid, having lived in Auckland, New Zealand, Taipei, Taiwan, and now Los Angeles. I am very interested in pursuing a career in consulting — on campus, I am involved with the Student International Business Council, and actively take part in case teams. In my free time, I love playing rugby, as that was the sport I grew up playing. On campus, I am a part of the club rugby team. Besides that, I also love film photography and carry my camera whenever I am in new and quirky places.

Last summer, I worked at the innovation strategy group of a large corporate. I was involved in evaluating new technologies, and the startups and companies that offer them. At Bricleir, as one of the business development associates, I am hoping to get more exposure to the emerging technology industries and bring transferable skills and knowledge into my future career.

Jack Meyer

Hello there! My name is Jack Meyer, I’m a junior comp-sci major at the University of Notre Dame and I hail from the great city of Cincinnati, Ohio. When I’m not coding, I usually can be found with the Notre Dame Chorale, a concert choir, where I serve as social commissioner. We go on domestic tours every year and an international tour every few years.

Horacio Lopez

Hello, I am a junior computer science major at the University of Notre Dame. Like many Notre Dame students, I am from Chicagoland. I live in a town north of the city called Gurnee (home of Six Flags: Great America). At school, the hobbies I am involved with include: Notre Dame Founder’s Fund (student venture capital club), Humor Artists of Notre Dame (improv), and hackathons.

Last summer I had the chance to work on my own startup, GiveBee, with my co-founder and fellow Notre Dame classmate Sam MacGinty. Like Bricleir, GiveBee connects two user types (businesses and community influencers) in a marketplace network. During my internship at Bricleir, I want to learn all I can on building scalable products for the long term and on growing an initial user base to the point of having substantial data regarding the unit economics of the business.
