  • "I love the fact that we get to learn the technologies and apply it to work every day. I like to be challenged and solving problem everyday. Develop a product from ground up will also give me a sense of ownership. I enjoy the fact a lot of company these days recognize most of corporate rule doesn't apply to software engineers. We do not like to have a dress code, we work best if allowed to choose the hours that we like."

  • "I like the ability to design new products. I also like the clear assignment cycle where managers start a project, assign you to create something based on a clear set of requirements. Next you work with competent coworkers to creatively design a project. Finally you deliver. I'm proud of all the projects I have worked on. Working as a Sr. Software Engineer also means that you are constantly working with new tools every year. Software is quickly evolving and non-repetitive."
