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, and he describes his co-workers as “genuine, sincere people who want to be part of a team.”


He was a software developer during his first few years at Computronix and began to slowly take on more and more responsibility. After five years, he became a Tech Lead, which is the role he still holds today. As a Tech Lead, he is responsible for working with clients to design the system that best suits their needs. For him, it is “very rewarding work,” particularly because he is able to go on-site and see how clients are using the products and how much easier their jobs have become since implementing our business solutions.


At first, those on-site visits weren’t always enjoyable. Brad admits that he’s not an extroverted person, and it took some time and practice for him to become fully comfortable presenting to clients. However, he quickly points out that the company leadership supported and encouraged him throughout the process, saying that “at first, they made sure I had strong leaders along with me, so that I could learn from their example.”


That leadership is one of the things that Brad most appreciates about Computronix. He has a lot of respect for the executive team and the other leaders here.  In closing, he affirmed that “you could have the best job in the world, but if you don’t work with people you respect, it’s not going to be a very rewarding job. And there are a lot of respectable people here.”
