The Tech Lead Fast Track Course

Computronix has a strong emphasis on professional growth and development. Employees are encouraged and given opportunities to learn and become better at their jobs, and even to move into new positions if they so desire. One of the ways the company provides learning opportunities is through programs, courses and classes, such as the Supervisor Training course, or the recent Tech Lead Fast Track program.

Interview With Eissa Pavo, 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. It can be scary to start a new job at a new company. There’s often uncertainty about whether you’re going to get along with your co-workers, how much you’re going to have to learn, and all the other things that go along with the transition. When Eissa Pavo started at Computronix a year ago, she had many of those same fears and worries. It was her first time working in the […]

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.

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.

Interview with Herman Leusink, Founder (Part 1)

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. Just before his interview, Herman Leusink was in the main kitchen of the Computronix offices, working on a puzzle. He slotted a couple pieces of a butterfly’s wing into place, adding to the forest scene, then led the way down the hall to his corner office, located directly below the “CX Place” sign which hangs on the outside of the building. His office isn’t what you might expect from the retired […]
