The CX Ambassador Group

At Computronix, we often do things differently than other companies. Not for the sake of innovation or being unique or anything else, but simply because we believe that sometimes the traditional methods aren’t the best ones.

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.

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 […]
