Meet Updater: Calvin Szeto, Frontend Engineer

Meet Updater Frontend Engineer and breakfast taco connoisseur, Calvin Szeto. While our team is a group of dog lovers, we also welcome cats with open arms. That’s why Calvin and his cat, Karl-Anthony Towns (yes, like the NBA player), are perfect additions to our engineering team. In his own words, here’s a little more about Calvin and why Updater is his perfect fit.

Sugar Land, TX.

What are two personal tidbits about you?

1. I have a beautiful cat named Karl-Anthony Towns.

Thankfully, no.

What's your best piece of moving advice?

Move into a building with an elevator!

The mail forwarding step. A house isn't a home until your mail is forwarded there.

How did you come to work at Updater?

I was looking for a job where I could learn and experiment with all kinds of new things, and Updater is a company where growth and curiosity are an essential part of the blueprint. It was a perfect fit.

What motivates you to come to work every day?

It's incredibly motivating to work for a company and on a team that I feel will grow into something enormously successful. Get in on the ground floor!

What's your favorite quote?

Every day is a noodle day.” Martin Yan.

You can only eat one food for the rest of your life. What is it?

I definitely can't survive on only one food because I'm in love with many different foods. But, I would be remiss if I did not give a shout-out to the Migas Tacos at Veracruz All Natural.

Howl's Moving Castle.

What's your favorite fast food restaurant?

Popeyes.

I have many. Pretty much anything with Christopher Walken. Iran So Far. Most recently, the skit with Chris Pine about RuPaul's Drag Race.
