Meet Konrad Schultz…
What is your favorite flavor of chips?
What is your role at Riipen?
Lead Software Developer
What does your role focus on?
If you go to app.riipen.com chances are I made what you are looking it (at least partially). More specifically, I do some programming, some administrative stuff, bug triaging, and I work closely with our Product Manager to help balance our team’s upcoming workload. The most exciting part of my job is that I get to solve real problems using a skill I love. I love telling computers how to move around 0s and 1s!
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
The panic that I might have overslept. And once in a while the smell of bacon… Panic and bacon… Really though I think having a lifestyle that I love. I have a job that I enjoy, an amazing fiancée, a supportive family, I have so much that gets me out of bed in the morning.
What’s a book you love, a quote, or something you think everyone should listen to or know?
In your words, what’s the best part of working at Riipen?
The best parts about working at Riipen are the autonomy and the immediate/large impact I have. I genuinely enjoy programming, it is a great blend of creativity and logic which perfectly satisfy my interests. My teammates are great too! We have worked together to foster a healthy/productive remote culture, which isn’t an easy task.
