Like a lot of people, I have some idea of what my friends do for work, but I don’t know the details. Likewise, most of my friends know I work in software, but very few understand exactly what we do.
We are inventors and problem solvers. Now, before I get too high on this horse, hear me out. Each and every day, we work to help our customers identify problems and create solutions to solve those problems. In a lot of the cases, the solutions involve software and some pretty powerful computers.
I believe that there is an inventor inside all of us. Much like a muscle, the more you exercise your skills as an inventor, the stronger they become. The same goes for problem-solving. I love my job because every day, I get to help solve another problem.
Because we are a small team, we have the ability to solve problems quickly. We don’t find ourselves bogged down with bureaucracy and red-tape. Rather, we are a fast moving and agile group that can take on any challenge.
In short, my job is to help other people solve problems and I love it.
