Meet CTI's Software Engineers: Marc Christensen
How long have you worked at CTI and what is your role?
I have been with CTI for about a year and seven months now, I am software engineer who has done a lot of work in Android development.
How long have you been a Software Engineer for? What initially led you into this field?
This is actually my first job out of college! But with internships, I have about two and a half years in the field. I have been interested in computers since a very young age and I enjoy the challenge of solving problems, so programming fit the bill on both fronts!
What is your favorite part about being a Software Engineer?
My favorite part of being a software engineer definitely has to be seeing my work help people, even making someone’s life a little easier is rewarding.
What is the hardest part about being a Software Engineer?
The hardest part definitely has to be fixing bugs and ensuring the software I write is stable and covers all the use cases. Testing every way a user can interact with my software and ensuring every possibility is handled can be difficult.
Do you have any non-work related engineering projects you work on in your free-time?
I do enjoy messing around with my Raspberry Pi from time to time, making a PiHole, a simple camera system, etc. However, I am much more interested in exploring tech hardware in my free time.
Every interaction I have with everyone at CTI is with positive and helpful people. I noticed this right away during my interviews and meeting my coworkers during my first couple days of work. I feel I can do the work I am tasked to do with all the support I may need!
