How long have you been at Functional Devices?

I’ve been at Functional Devices for coming up on three years.

What made you want to work with software?

We all have boring, repetitive tasks that we have to complete over and over. I love software because I can use it to automate and eliminate as much of those kinds of tasks as possible. That frees up people to work on projects that are more interesting and fulfilling.

What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

I love science fiction, so I spend a lot of time reading books and watching movies. I also have a truly massive collection of LEGOs which I use to build medieval themed models.

What’s your favorite part of working at Functional Devices?

The best part about Functional is the people. It’s a cliché, but in this case it’s true. I’ve worked at three places since college and the difference is night and day. Being surrounded by competent people who are constantly pushing themselves and you to do better is awesome.
