ActiveBuilding Employee Spotlight: Mark Steudel

Posted on Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Welcome to the sixth edition of our Employee Spotlight blog series! Throughout this series we’re interviewing members of our team and discovering what makes them tick.

This time we’re learning more about Mark Steudel, a Developer who works on our ActiveBuilding platform.  Let’s learn what Mark has been working on recently, where he likes to vacation, and why Mark is our office’s outdoor guru.

What is your role at ActiveBuilding?  I am a developer that works on the ActiveBuilding portal. I work on new features, updates to features, and bug fixes.

What do you like most about ActiveBuilding?  I really love the people that I work with. They are all smart, funny and dedicated, can’t get much better than that!

What has been your favorite project at ActiveBuilding?  My favorite project was working on the Lobby Display Screen transit schedule integration. Lots of the projects I work on are deep in the bowels of the software and nobody gets to see them, so it’s nice to get to do customer facing things once in a while.

Iphone, Android, or Windows phone?  Why?  Iphone … because that was the first smart phone I bought.

Now that we know what phone you prefer, what’s your favorite app?  Hmmm … I think my favorite are apps that integrate in location: One Bus Away, Car2Go, Star Walk, etc. Though I mostly use my phone to play games and read books.

What’s your favorite vacation spot?  I think Montana is one of my favorite vacation spots, gorgeous mountains and rivers, and lots of trout.

When you’re not being amazing at your job, what do you like to do outside of work?  I’m either outside with my family canoeing, hiking, biking, and fly fishing or I’m playing fiddle in one of my two bluegrass bands.
