“I’ve been at the Candy Factory for … :thinking_face::thinking_face: … years! I’ve been here a long time and honestly can’t imagine being anywhere else. My job is great but isolating, so having people I legitimately LOVE being around while at work has been such a treat  :face_with_cowboy_hat:.”

Lupulin Exchange – Software Engineer 

________________

Hello:man-raising-hand:I’m AJ and I’m a Software Engineer at the Lupulin Exchange. When I’m not at the Candy Factory, I’m probably at home with my wife and our cute kids! The kids, by the way, ALSO love coming to the Candy Factory for Jelly Bellies (or to just occasionally steal cereal)! Some people call me “BURRITO THUNDER” (:burrito::zap:)… and there’s probably a reason for that, but I don’t remember what. :zany_face:
