26 Mar An Interview with Application Developer Zach Price
Hoosier native Zach Price grew up on a farm in Modoc, Indiana but now spends his days writing code instead of hauling seed.
Director of Communications Sara Dillard sat down with Zach for an interview to find out a little bit more about one of Inverse-Square’s star Developers.
SD: We’ll start with an easy one – I hope. What’s your favorite part of your job?
ZP: The people, I love them! But I also enjoy when I learn, be it a new-to-me technology or from the knowledge of my cohorts.
SD: Did you always want to work in technology? When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
ZP: No, growing up, I wanted to be a carpenter and build things with my hands. I create things now, but with a keyboard – and hopefully a brain!
SD: So, when you’re not creating new things on your keyboard at work, what do you like to do in your spare time?
ZP: I enjoy programming and learning about the technology that drives game engines. Alternatively, cooking, nature, and history shows are fun to watch!
SD: You even work on your programming skills out of the office, that’s impressive! Do you have any other hobbies?
ZP: Physical fitness has become a hobby of mine; I regularly run, do strength training, and eat well. I also play online games with my friends and family. It helps us stay in touch despite living apart.
SD: Living far apart can be hard, that said, what is your favorite place in the world?
ZP: America… but really, my favorite place is near my family, wherever that may be.
SD: Sweet answer! Back to your work family. What’s one of your proudest moments at work?
ZP: That’s difficult to answer. To a fault, I have the mentality of a perfectionist. So, I can’t help but look back and see how my accomplishments could always have been that bit better.
SD: I get that. But your perfectionism is what makes you such a good Developer! OK, last one, what’s one thing about Inverse-Square you think people should know?
ZP: We treat our clients fairly and with generosity and patience. I believe that, in general, they receive quite a lot from our commitment.
