Business Development Giftern Shailee Onboards from Bay Area 🇺🇸 imageedit39571746935.jpg Shailee Nanavati, a Santa Clara High School sophomore is now interning at the corporate gifting platform Giftpack AI. Don’t let age deceive your assumptions of a high school student. With multiple awards and knowledge of the business world, Shailee joins together with the business development at the company. At a young age, Shailee has founded several organizations. One example is a non-profit organization, Bears to Share, whose vision is to make a difference for the local community, be it sewing stuffed animals for children in hospitals or donating hundreds of masks. Starting as a club at Santa Clara High School, the organization has expanded and reached people all over the Bay Area providing them with both help and happiness. She is also the founder and host of Shape Your Future, where she builds a community of industry leaders and successful individuals to share their experience and guide young adults through their potential career paths. Giftpack is excited to see young talents with entrepreneurial mindsets joining the wave of digitalized gifting. Many of the members have actually worked at world-famous early startups (https://giftpack.ai/about), or started their projects (e.g. Ping Cheng — the Founder of Wahdapp). Shailee knew that she loves a fast-paced environment and that working at Giftpack will present her with a handful of opportunities. Hence she decided to apply for the internship position. She is thrilled that she now gets to exercise skills she has learned and will be able to even explore more and learn new ones. She enjoys how close team members are to each other and the positive vibe at this company. Bringing her experience from her past successes in Silicon Valley after attending programs and leading award-winning teams, she hopes to contribute by bridging the gap between business relationships with thoughtful gifts.

Former Frontend Engineer Giftern Ping Cheng Rejoins Giftpack AI

Former Frontend Engineer Giftern Ping Cheng Rejoins Giftpack AI

When Giftpack AI member returns home 🇹🇼 _DSC0005.jpg After down-sizing the team in 2021, Archer Chiang, the CEO of Giftpack AI rebuilt the team and sort out all the internal company resources. In 2022, Giftpack opened another round of Giftern program, with a few full-time openings being available alongside. Ping Cheng was a former Front-end Giftern at Giftpack from February 2020 until the April of 2021. After some major life events, he has returned to the AI gifting company as a full time Front-end Engineer. Ping grew up relocating in many countries due to his parent’s work. He attended school in Brussels in Belgium, Taipei Taiwan, and went to high school and college in Ankara, Turkey. He graduated with a major in Computer Technology and Information Systems from Bilkent University in 2021. That being said, he speaks 5 languages with great fluency: Chinese, English, French, Turkish, and Arabic. The multicultural perspectives he brings to the team is crucial to Giftpack’s cultural database of gift options. After his Giftern experience while still in college, he came back to Taiwan and joined one of the most popular tech companies in Asia — Line Corp. He faced the compulsory military service and quitted the job to finish serving. Despite the life at Line was exciting, he wished he could have more flexibility in working and more responsibility. He values challenges, growth opportunities, and work-life balance very much while considering a job. He figured Giftpack is the company that will fulfill all his current needs in his professional life. Another achievement of Ping is his self-founded Muslim app, Wahdapp. The core value of Wahdapp is for Muslims to easily find or invite groups of people to pray together in their local areas. Users can join or invite for the five daily prayers, the Friday prayer (Jumuah), and even the funeral prayer (Janazah). He used the idea and developed the prototype into a fully functioning application, making it available for all iOS and Android users. The application is now on both Google Play and App Store, and has active users from Muslims of different countries across the world, including Turkey, Indonesia, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, and many more. Archer and the team members are thrilled to welcome Ping back. His goal with Giftpack is to create a seamless experience for Giftpack users in their journey on the platform. He wants to make sure that the platform is ready to scale up at any moment, as we are expecting company’s growth to skyrocket in the near future.
