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 […]

Interview with Matthew Johnson, 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. One thing you discover when talking to Computronix employees is that many of them are extremely committed to the company. It’s not uncommon to meet someone who has been part of Computronix for a decade or more, working their way from an entry-level job to a management position. Matthew Johnson is a perfect example of that, as he started working here 14 years ago as an apprentice who knew “very little […]

Interview with Chris Johnstone, 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 stereotypical computer programmer is quiet, probably introverted, and perhaps even kind of awkward. Chris Johnstone does not fit the stereotype. “I have kind of an outgoing skillset, it’s not the most common thing around programmers,” he admits early in our interview. He injects passion and expression into the stories he tells as we discuss his time working for Computronix, a place that he obviously loves. After graduating from post-secondary education, […]
