Team Member Spotlight: Eric
Eric Uldall, Software Engineer
Welcome to our very first RM Team Member Spotlight! We want to give you insight into RM by letting you hear from team members in varying roles at our company as to why they chose to work here and what excites them about their role.
Our very first spotlight is on Eric Uldall, Software Engineer. Eric is celebrating his first year anniversary at RM on July 14.
How did you find out about an opportunity at RM and what made you choose to pursue this opportunity?
I was working with a business partner who knew the Vice President of Product Development at RM and thought I would enjoy working with the team. After a short lunch meeting and getting an idea of what RM was up to, I knew I would be happy at RM. Once I met the rest of the team it was a no brainer. RM is family now.
What do you enjoy about working on RM’s Development team?
I personally feel like my drive and passion for new technology has earned a huge amount of freedom when I choose the technology I want to work with. I feel my opinion on the tech stack is always heard and often gets used.
I get to work with some of the best developers, designers and business people I’ve known, not to mention some of the best people I’ve known regardless their title.
What I love most about working on the RM Dev team is knowing the work I do makes an impact. That’s the dream–to actively impact my environment. Who knows how far that ripple will spread.
How have you grown in your career while working at RM?
I’ve grown immensely in the last year at RM. I’ve learned at least 5 new technologies (probably more). I’ve expanded my understanding of just how big data can be and how to make use of it at scale. RM is really an environment that allows us to push the limits of our abilities.
What most excites and motivates about coming into work every day?
My co-workers. RM is a truly amazing group of individuals. We’re like a big family, and we have our ups and downs. At the end of the day we can all come together and play some Smash Bros or Mortal Kombat, and I dig that.
How do you like SPACE, RM’s HQ? Any favorite perks you’d like to share?
SPACE is great. The visionaries for this environment did a great job of creating a place that is comfortable, offers plenty of escape, yet doesn’t distract from the tasks at hand. SPACE is a productive environment with plenty of opportunity to let your hair down!
