Interview With Brad Veenstra, Tech Lead

For our Computronix employee interviews, we sit down with people from all levels of our company and ask them about their jobs, and what it’s like working for Computronix. When Brad Veenstra graduated from post-secondary school a decade ago and began looking for a job, one of the potential workplaces that really stood out to him was a small software company named Computronix. From his initial meeting with the previous CEO, Herman Leusink, Brad says that he could tell that it was “a very down-to-earth, authentic place. It felt like a really natural fit.” That first impression has proven true, […]

Interview With Theresa Ayers, Developer

For our Computronix employee interviews, we sit down with people from all levels of our company and ask them about their jobs, and what it’s like working for Computronix. The vast majority of professionals in the tech industry are male, particularly among programmers and developers. This fact can cause problems with women’s work being undervalued or not taken seriously. A recent study found that although women’s code was actually rated slightly higher than men’s, the women were more likely to have their code rejected. Theresa Ayers was the only female in her engineering program at college, and she experienced some of that […]

Interview With Chris Schulz, Developer

For our Computronix employee interviews, we sit down with people from all levels of our company and ask them about their jobs, and what it’s like working for Computronix. One of the core principles that Computronix values is learning. Employees are constantly encouraged and given opportunities to deepen their knowledge in a wide range of areas. This could include anything from taking classes on programming or leadership, allowing for on-the-job mentorship, or just assigning people to projects that will require them to develop new skills. Chris Schulz has experienced a lot of this learning during his two years at Computronix. […]

Interview With Lori Bluemel, Business Analyst

For our Computronix employee interviews, we sit down with people from all levels of our company and ask them about their jobs, and what it’s like working for Computronix. When starting any new job, there’s a learning curve involved in becoming familiar with the company, with your new position, and learning where or who to go to for help. To understand how Computronix tries to make this transition as smooth as possible, we spoke to Lori Bluemel three months into working for Computronix as a Senior Business Analyst – just long enough to have caught up with the learning curve, […]

Interview With Jim den Otter, CTO

For our Computronix employee interviews, we sit down with people from all levels of our company and ask them about their jobs, and what it’s like working for Computronix. Interestingly, although Herman Leusink is the founder of Computronix and led the company its first 34 years, he has been passed up as the longest continually employed member of Computronix by Jim den Otter. Jim started with Computronix in the early 80’s, and has been a fixture at the company ever since. One could hardly publish a series of interviews with Computronix employees and neglect to talk to Jim, so we […]

Interview With Grant Shantz, Project Manager

For our Computronix employee interviews, we sit down with people from all levels of our company and ask them about their jobs, and what it’s like working for Computronix. Computronix places a strong emphasis on helping people find the role that suits them best. Not only the role that they are most skilled in, or the one in which they are most useful to the company, but also one that they enjoy, and can feel fulfilled in. Grant Shantz is an excellent example of an employee who has ‘risen through the ranks,’ so to speak, and is now in the […]
