Learning / Being Challenged
Day to Day
There is a wide variety of projects that I can work on and it changes often. My main work centers around mobile app development. I was hired on to work using a completely new coding language and framework for the company, so I was the only person there that was doing that. I now spend some time working on their Android and web development projects. I have a task queue that I look at every day and tackle whatever needs to be worked on. Ultimately, my job is to learn new things and execute.
