Getting to Know Will Thieme

What motivates you to wake up and go to Katch?
I really value having colleagues I can get along with. For me, going to work in the morning means I get to work on an awesome product which I know will disrupt the work-from-home-culture, and I get to do it alongside awesome people!

What do you do at Katch?
I’m a Lead Mobile Software Engineer, and I work on mobile application(s) alongside the other engineers.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?
My full (legal) name is actually Wilhelm Johan Thieme VII

What’s your favorite movie?

What’s your astrological sign?

What’s the weirdest job you had?
I worked as a Production Assistant/Runner on a film set for a couple of summers during college.

If you weren’t a Lead Mobile Software Engineer at Katch, what else might you be doing?
I definitely think ending up in a Software Engineering role was inevitable because I like puzzles and logical thinking, but I’ve always been interested in Real Estate.

Who is your hero? Why?
Craig Federighi, the Senior Vice President of Software Engineering at Apple. I thoroughly enjoy watching him speak at conferences and share his opinion about Software Engineering. His stage presence and way of presenting makes you believe anything says and it just gets you excited about software engineering.

What’s your favorite food?
Anything Italian, but Risotto is my favorite!
