Meet Our Engineers: Bridget Furlong
In July, University of Michigan graduate, Bridget Furlong, is celebrating her first anniversary as a SoarTech Software Engineer. Bridget has always known she wanted to be an engineer like her dad, but didn’t know she’d choose software engineer until she was exposed to it throughout her course work.
Bridget completed a vision course in her senior year and was intrigued by SoarTech. “I was looking for a smaller tech company atmosphere, and the work SoarTech does was interesting to me.”
Since joining SoarTech, Bridget said the people are her favorite part of being on the team. “Everyone has been really welcoming and understanding with working remotely,” she said. “Starting virtually, I was worried about getting to know everyone and the culture at SoarTech. But everyone I’ve talked to has been more than willing to help me understand and help with the technical aspects of my projects. Also, one senior engineer created a Dungeons & Dragons group with some new hires and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know them and learning the game!”
One of her top accomplishments since joining the SoarTech team member is her ability to get up to speed quickly remotely on her projects and to be able to contribute to them.
When Bridget isn’t busy contributing to the SoarTech team, she likes to travel, play golf, and collect vinyl!
