Hailing from Chicago, Julio was introduced to software programming as a high school senior, but studied mechanical engineering and splintering before a software position at a Silicon Valley startup transformed his software skills from a hobby to an exciting profession. He discovered a CA opportunity years later, and took his creative career in a new direction.
After the team’s 10-minute morning stand-up meeting, Julio partners up with colleagues. With two keyboards attached to one workstation, he codes stories throughout the day. Balancing lots of heavy programming with lots of light fun, Julio often takes several energizing ping-pong and foosball breaks with fellow developers before getting back to work.
“CA gives you a lot of responsibility and a flexibility. This place really knows how to treat developers well. It’s easy to form strong bonds. You have to make sure that you’re motivated and excited about what you do.”
“We’re going through changes that create a lot of opportunities for developers who are eager to build.”
