Profession: Software Engineer

I work in the defence sector, so the nature of my work is always interesting. Being a software engineer, a large part of my job is problem solving. I'm faced with a task and have to come up with a way to fix it. I work with some very talented and experienced people, each day is interesting. It’s often very difficult, but is certainly a satisfying job.
