Android. Is it even a competition?

Outside of technical hobbies like coding and video games, I also enjoy sewing and reading.

What advice would you provide to someone interested in the tech field?
Even if you feel that you don’t fit the stereotypical “tech guy”, there is a place for you in the tech field. So much of what we do in tech is troubleshooting and problem solving, so new and different perpectives are both helpful and welcome!

The company culture at K3 is pretty relaxed. There isn’t a strict dress code, and people are happy to joke around a little. Everyone is also super nice.
