Software companies require many types of expertise to function. They need sales professionals to help customers get the right tools for the job, customer success staff standing by for questions and marketers to get the word out about the latest products and services.
But what about the employees most customers never meet? PDCflow’s developers, IT and other internal staff work hard to keep our products running and create new features that push our company forward. Today, we’ll shine a spotlight on just one of the awesome employees that makes our company great. Who is PDCflow? Meet Matt Reichard.
- How has PDCflow helped you in your career development?
“How haven’t they helped me?” is the more appropriate question, I think. They took a chance on me when I was fresh out of college when I knew relatively little. I’ve since worked primarily on backend services and some front end apps and learned more about both in my short time here than my whole time at college. Beyond that, my interactions at PDCflow have helped me develop a better sense of self confidence that extends beyond the workplace
- What has been your favorite experience at PDCflow?
It’s difficult to choose a single experience as a favorite. The most recent company party we had was really fun. Meeting new people and seeing those I knew in person and letting loose for the first time since working from home became standard was great. Aside from that, I would say the times we come together as a team or teams to talk about challenges and formulate the ways we can overcome them are the most rewarding for me.
- What is on your wish list for the future with PDCflow?
I don’t know if I have any wish list for the future with PDCflow. The things I would wish for are already being either implemented or worked on. I’m a pretty simple man. I can really only think of two things.
First, I want a company that listens to and values their employees, which I feel PDCflow already does.
Second, I want a sense of job security at said company and I feel PDCflow has that in spades by leveraging that willingness to listen to employees and having a concise goal for the company’s future.
- What is your proudest moment at PDCflow?
I think it would have to be when I was moved up to a full time software development position. I struggled a lot when I was first hired as an intern with Impostor Syndrome. It was very hard for me to recognize any of my own achievements at work, if I managed to do so at all. The moment I was offered my current position was almost like a switch was turned on in my mind.
- What do you enjoy most about living along the Wasatch Front?
100%, the views. On a clear morning in Spring or Summer, nothing beats being able to see the mountains or be up in them looking down on the valley. It’s so easy to get out and spend some time in nature, whether it be camping, hiking, boating, etc. It’s such a beautiful place.
- What hobbies or interests do you have outside of work?
In no particular order, playing video games, spending time with my wife and dogs, spending time with my parents and siblings, and dabbling in learning to play guitar. Recently, I was introduced to disc golf and have been obsessed with it. I can’t remember the last time I’ve caught the bug this badly for something.
