Justin Soderstrom recently joined BIT as a Software Engineer for Development Team 1. Justin was originally born in Baltimore, Maryland but has lived all over the United States in places such as Texas, Alaska, and Michigan!
Justin originally attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), but transferred to Dakota State University after the fall of his sophomore year. At DSU, he earned a B.S. in Computer Science and an A.S. in Network and Computer Security.
Prior to working for BIT, Justin had an internship at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab (JHUAPL) where he wrote software that assisted various projects for the Asymmetric Operations Sector (AOS) of the laboratory.
Justin is most looking forward to the various software projects he will get to work on and the ability to try new things. He explained, “My passion is programming and software engineering, so I am excited to use my skills to help the State of South Dakota!”
In his free time, Justin said,
“I am an avid gamer and enjoy everything from video games to board games. I also enjoy going on hikes and biking and I look forward to trying out some of the trails around Pierre. Finally, I enjoy trying out new programming languages and developing my side programming projects for myself at home.”
Welcome to BIT, Justin! We are happy to have you!
