Josh at Continuum
How did you hear about Continuum in the first place? "Some of my college friends worked here and I lived with an old employee that worked here at the time."
What is your best memory as a Continuum employee?"It is hard to say that I have one best memory while working here as there are a lot of great memories. But one is when I messed with my supervisor, Bill Stevens. I took his lobster from his desk then took a photo of it and emailed it to him from a shared mailbox demanding that we get to go home early or the crab gets boiled. The look on his face when he saw the email was priceless. He was wondering who took it and who sent the email."
Do you have any other fun/funny stories?"One Saturday, shortly after I started working here, I thought it would a good idea to ride my Harley to work and just enjoy the day. While sitting in a meeting, a few of us were making jokes that it would be funny if it started raining. Not even 30 minutes later, it started to down pour and everyone just turned and looked right at me. All I could do was shake my head because I knew the ride home was not going to be fun."
Would you recommend applying at Continuum to a friend?"Yes! Even if you feel you don’t know a lot about IT, the people that work here are great and will show you different things and teach you how to address different issues."
