Career

Facebook

In the summer of 2004, in between his freshman and sophomore years at Harvard, Erik Schultink moved to Palo Alto, California to work on PHP and JavaScript development for Facebook. He lived in the famous Facebook House, 819 La Jennifer Way, with Mark Zuckerberg, Sean Parker, and Dustin Moskovitz, and Stephen Dawson-Hackert. He usually woke up at around 10:00-11:00 am every morning to start his day, which was considered early compared to the other tenants. [10] [9]

At the time, Mark Zuckerberg was focused on the limited goal of getting college students to use Facebook.

As a result, Schultink and Dawson-Hackert (the other summer intern at Facebook) spent most of his time adding schools to the network and developing features specifically related to college students, including Facebook groups, the Facebook wall, and security features, He also fixed bugs, answered support email, and deployed the first co-lo rack/servers. [10]

They both returned to Harvard in September 2004.

Schultink continued to work for the company part-time until December 2004.
