Software Designer

"When I worked in BlackBerry as Software Designer Co-op, the company was experiencing difficulties. However, the new CEO John Chen did a lot of work to get the company back onto the track. The working environment of BlackBerry is great. The company also got a lot of talented people. As a Canadian company, I have faith in BlackBerry."
