Approximately one year ago, in August 2018, Tarmo joined the software development team at Visual Components (VC) and he has been working in software development ever since.
He has a great passion for his career, so much so that when he is not busy tackling problems with C++ or C# at work, you’ll find him prototyping other areas of programming.
Tarmo is also a father of two kids, and he enjoys spending time with his family and goes fishing with his children. Although he considers fishing as a casual hobby, Tarmo would still be able to catch a big “hauki” (Finnish for pike). He likes listening to and collecting different kinds of music videos on YouTube, including anime music videos. Tarmo also has a talent for drawing, you can find one of his drawings below!
How did you end up working at Visual Components?
That’s kind of funny. My brother was working at VC while I was looking for a job. I asked him about the company, was it good, did it match my criteria, and then I decided to apply. Eight years ago I worked in the same company as him, so it was an amazing surprise that I followed in his footsteps for a second time!
But the main reason why I picked the company is my interest in 3D desktop visualization software development. At my previous job, I was also working on embedded software for mobile devices. However, I wanted to work with PC software, which is more complex to develop and debug.
What are your main responsibilities?
I have been working on software building and integration issues, including installation software improvements.
What has made you stay at Visual Components?
I like everything that I do at the moment. I also find that VC has a really good atmosphere. Everyone is polite, and always approaches me with a smile. I think it’s amazing what VC has achieved from a company organization perspective.
