Meet David Reimers: An inventive software engineer with an encyclopedic brain

David Reimers has been working with us at Paliscope since the very beginning in 2016. Despite being the longest serving software engineer on the team, he continues to crank out a steady supply of fresh ideas and always keeps up with the forefront of technology. Needless to say, he’s a highly appreciated member of the team.

Besides contributing with excellent ideas and well honed software engineering skills, David helps to keep team spirit high with his happy and sociable disposition. He also never ceases to impress us with his built-in knowledge bank—he can pretty much talk about anything, just like a reference book!

Here, we talk with David to learn more about what led him to the field of software engineering in the first place and to find out what he does in his spare time.

How would you describe yourself as a person?

I am a curious person who likes to learn new things. I love football and music, especially when I get to enjoy them live. I also like to cook and hang out with family and friends.

What is your role at Paliscope?

I develop new functions and improve existing ones as part of Paliscope’s development team. 

What first sparked your interest in the field of software engineering?

I worked as a buyer at Volvo for a number of years, but didn’t feel I enjoyed that role and wanted to work with something that was more technical and dealt with more problem solving. I’ve always been interested in programming and have always tinkered a bit with it in one way or another since I was 12 or 13 years old. I decided to train as a developer and was given a leave of absence to study in a two-year YH program for web developers. It was a fantastic opportunity to have the chance to take a break in the middle of my work life and I haven’t regretted it for a second. Part of the training involved an internship at NetClean and, once the training was complete, I was hired by them.

What’s the best part about working at Paliscope?

It’s a wonderful team that’s always working together to find the best solutions, and a great bunch to hang out with.

What are you working on right now?

We are rebuilding the report generation function to create a faster and more flexible report. It will give users completely new possibilities to customize the content in their reports, as well as how they look. I think it will be a great improvement for all users. 

Where can we find you when you’re not at work?

Once the pandemic is over, you’ll find me on a bleacher or in a cramped concert hall. I can also be found out on a run.
