Working here at Mindspark has a sort of irony for me. You see, while my job involves working with bugs all day, I actually have a phobia of bugs.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a severe phobia of bugs. I have Insectophobia, Arachnophobia, and a fear of every bug-like creepy crawly not covered by those phobias. How ironic, then, that I’ve found myself a career finding bugs. Fortunately for me, finding this sort of bug is much more enjoyable.
I find, write, report, and test bugs throughout my workday. Often, people will use (cartoon) pictures of bugs as icons for various messages in slack. I spend my days surrounded by bugs, but I couldn’t be more at home.
