Life at Flywheel
June 12, 2017 by Melanie Phelan

Summer is here, and so are new Flywheelers!

School may be out for summer, but Camp Flywheel (our super fly internship program) is officially in session! We’ve welcomed four new interns to the team, plus a brand new, full-time Flywheeler. Let’s get to know these new troop members! Austin Hillman, Intern Can you tell us about yourself? I’m a Sophomore in the Raikes School of Computer Science and Management at UNL. I am currently majoring in Finance and Marketing with minors in Computer Science, Entrepreneurship,...

Our bright and shiny new office!

When Flywheel first started, we were just a few people in a coworking space. In 2014, we hit a major milestone and moved into our very own downtown office. At the time, the 10 employees that made up Flywheel couldn’t imagine ever outgrowing our one-floor headquarters. But as you’ve probably noticed, we’ve done a LOT of growing over the last couple years – meaning our office needed to grow, too! Over the past year, we transformed...

Celebrating the Silicon Prairie (and Technologist of the Year!)

This week we got to attend the Silicon Prairie Awards, a night of recognizing the greatest minds in the midwest, right here in Omaha! In true Flywheel fashion, we showed up dressed to the nines to cheer on all the nominees, including a few Flywheelers! Members of the fly crew were nominated in three different categories, including: Collin Wyler for Student Entrepreneur of the Year Tony Noecker for Technologist of the Year Flywheel for Startup...

April showers bring new Flywheelers!

We hired seven new friends to work at Flywheel, so after training was complete, one of our first orders of business was to get the whole company together for a little happy hour. This gives us a chance to get to know our new teammates a little better, and an excuse to eat lots and lots of guacamole! Here are some of the fun facts we learned about each of them: Austin Moehlenhoff Can you tell us...

What it’s like to be an intern at Camp Flywheel

Ever wondered what it’s like to be an intern at Flywheel? We asked some of our past interns (now full-time employees!), what it was like to spend their first summer at Camp Flywheel during the internship program. We got some fun insight, and we know you’ll be ready to join our troop after reading their responses! First we talked to Keegan, who started at Flywheel as a project management intern. She worked with the development...

The significant seven February hires!

It’s been a while since our last new hire class started, so we thought it was time to add to the Fly Family. We asked them a few questions to help us get to know them, and we cannot help but share! Alex O’Neill, Inside Sales Representative Can you tell us a little about yourself? I grew up in the small town of Wakefield, Nebraska. I enjoyed playing a number of different sports, but basketball and...

We heart designers…and each other!

We really use any excuse to celebrate, and for Valentine’s Day, we decided to propel the Fly Fam back to the past. We took the party back to our elementary roots with homemade valentines, mail-pails on every desk, candy strewn about the office, and decorative hearts hung all over the kitchen! As 9 o’clock came and the team rolled in for their morning coffee, they discovered the crafting station and got to work on all...
