I can has paycheck? - Jason Lindquist
Idle ramblings of an idle mind
I can has paycheck?
So I started a new job today with an outfit called Biosite. They make medical testing materials, what they call "point of care testing". Mostly the sort of thing you drip a bit of blood on, and it tells you what interesting substances are in there, like chemical markers of a heart attack, or prescription drugs, or illegal recreational drugs, what have you. Where I come in, is that a lot of these tests involve fluorescent dyes, and they sell an electronic meter that measures the glow from the dyes and translates that into concentrations of whatever is present. I'll be working on the software inside that meter.

Working for smaller companies is kind of nice...

Actually, we're about 800 people in a 4-building complex. And the corporate mothership is about double that somewhere in suburban Boston. But the hardware and software group is less than a couple of dozen people, so it kind of feels small. I think most of the non-suit staff is chemists and biologists and that sorta folk.

I get a nice view of the helichopters coming and going from Miramar out my third-story window, and the canyon below. Three of us share one office, but it's pretty quiet.
