Meet the Pixers is our blog series where we introduce you to the talented folks who make our company a success. Today, we’re featuring Phi Nguyen, our Senior Engineer.

Tell us a little bit about your background: 

I moved around a bit, but I have been living in Massachusetts my entire life. From an early age, I quickly figured out that I had passion for mathematics and problem solving, which eventually led me to pursue a software engineering career. I have been with Pixability ever since obtaining my degree in Computer Science.

Aside from my career, I have always been passionate about music. I would say that music connects with me on an emotional level so I am on a never ending journey to discover new artists!

What is the last thing you watched on YouTube? 

The Rubik’s Cube 3×3 World Record of 3.13 seconds

It takes a great deal of effort to reach this level of cubing. The work ethic from these top cubers is inspirational. I picked up speedcubing at an early age and have been training on-and-off to get faster, with my current record at 9 seconds. Cubing has also taught me the value of self-improvement.

What is the best career advice you have ever received? 

People will value you for your knowledge. Find something you are really passionate about and become an expert on it.

What advice would you give to someone starting out in their career? 

The only thing stopping you from being the best version of yourself is your mentality. A change in thinking can help get you to where you want to be!
