  • "Being a senior software engineer is a very rewarding job. I find it a 'mathematically creative' job. You design and build new features and products from basically nothing, you choose how to implement features and which technologies to use, and at the end of the day (hopefully) you write something thousands, or millions, or billions of people will use. I am always proud of what I have created."

  • "Being a senior software engineer is a challenging and enjoyable career path that lets you exercise your creative side in software architecture and your intellectual side in problem solving and solution creation. I feel it is the greatest career field anyone could ever be a part of. There are very few career fields where you get to build applications that will be used by thousands of people and directly improve people's lives by doing your job well."
