Q&A With Andy Creeth
Where are you from and what have you done before Yesware?
I am originally from Wilton, Connecticut, and attended college at Boston University for two years before transferring to Worcester Polytechnic Institute. I had a summer internship at MIT Lincoln Laboratory developing low-level system software. I just finished my undergraduate degree at WPI and am excited to start my career at Yesware.
How did you grow into a Software Engineering role?
I started playing around with programming in middle school programming my brother’s TI-83 calculator. I experimented with various programming languages in my free time. When I started college, I became very interested in computer hardware and decided to pursue a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. During my MIT internship, I rediscovered my interest in software and decided to also complete a minor in Computer Science. That helped as I began to pursue a career in software.
Why did you think that Yesware would be a good fit for you?
I knew that I wanted to be part of a small team that worked on multiple projects that weren’t just doing the same thing day in and day out. Working at a startup like Yesware gives me the opportunity to explore more exciting problems and tasks than I imagine I would at a larger company. I am also particularly interested in learning about design challenges in scaling up a SaaS infrastructure.
What are you most excited to accomplish in your first 100 days at Yesware?
I am really excited to familiarize myself with the codebase. Most important to me is contributing to a well-functioning, tight-knit software team. That is a really exciting experience.
