Let’s face it…we’ve all had jobs that we’ve enjoyed, and jobs that have made us absolutely miserable. The reality is that a job isn’t just about the paycheck, the benefits, or the work itself. To achieve true happiness in your profession, you must also appreciate and respect the company values, your co-workers, and the work […]

So, you spent a ton of time getting your resume ready for prime time. You found an opportunity with a great company.  You’ve updated your resume to include the skills and experience that speak directly to the job description and requirements for the position. The recruiter called and said the hiring manager has requested an […]

Time to learn! I’ll admit it — I’m lazy. Often times the hardest thing to do is motivate myself to learn new technologies, particularly if I’ve been busy or I have other obligations. It is especially hard if you’re not forced into it. I’ve heard people complain about not knowing the newest hottest frameworks and language features because […]

Greetings! Although I have worked at Isos for almost four years, this is my first-ever blog entry! I’m excited to be joining the very talented blogging team here at our company.

Welcome back! It’s time to build the second part of the can dispenser. This was quite a bit more challenging to model due to the odd shape and the precision necessary to make this piece work with the spindle from Part 1.

We have the coolest office in existence!  Old school arcade games, TV’s everywhere, snacks, soda, beer!  I think the partners never want us leaving.

As a technical recruiter I spend a lot of time reviewing resumes for both internal positions at Isos Technology and on behalf of the clients we support.

Last Thursday we had the Isos 2014 blogging awards ceremony at Salut in Tempe. In case you haven’t been following along, in 2014 we added gamification to the Isos blogs to add a little fun to what can at times feel very cumbersome. Take a look at these blog entries to get a little background. […]

Project Burnout

There is a thrill to starting a new project… delving into the requirements, discussions with enthusiastic business partners, new teammates, and usually something new, technically or procedurally, you hadn’t done before.
