This week’s Inside Edition with ReadyTalk Engineering highlights a day in the life of Mark Godwin, a Software Developer on the Conference Center team.  Mark graduated with a B.S. Computer Science from Colorado School of Mines and has been with ReadyTalk just under a year.

 

Describe a typical day for you at ReadyTalk

 

 

Arrive in the morning and get some coffee.  Pound out some code for a few hours while collaborating with my team through a campfire chat room.  When I run into a problem, I can ask my co-workers, whom are some of the most talented developers I know.  When lunch rolls around, I head out the door to a variety of neighboring restaurants on16th St.Mall.  Head back in and grab a snack or two from the break room.  Spend the rest of the day working with others on the team trying to solve the challenge that is presented to me for the day.  Occasionally, a nerf gun war will break out in the afternoon.  Pack up and catch the bus home-watching a movie on the bus while everyone else sits in traffic.

 

 

 Why do you think ReadyTalk is the #1 company to work for in Colorado?

 

 

ReadyTalk is the number one place to work  in Colorado because of the culture and people.  The people you're surrounded by are some of the best developers - and also nicest - in Colorado and they push you to solve problems the 'right' way.  The culture encourages openness and innovation.  Everyone is aware of the latest tech trends and no one seems out of touch with what the company is doing.  Plus the location is just really cool!

 

 

Tell us about your favorite day at work….

 

 

We spend a lot of days as developers sitting in front of a computer, so I think one of my favorite days was when the company bought all of the engineering dept nerf guns as a holiday present.  The entire engineering department spent the following hour in a floor-wide nerf gun battle - which resulted in the floor being completely engulfed in little orange darts!  I'm not sure other companies could pull off something like that, or would want to, but it was a great way to have fun and meet a lot of people I hadn't really gotten the chance to see much in the engineering department.

 

 

If someone were interested in working on your team at ReadyTalk what advice would you have for them?

 

 

Be curious, and have a passion to make a good product.
