In the spotlight: Jason Lun

Another month, another Flash Employee in the Spotlight! In this monthly column, we want to introduce the people behind the organisation and ask them some fun questions. Today, we present Jason Lun. Keep reading to find out more about Jason’s daily work!

Jason, what’s your role at Flash?

“My main task as a Senior Software Developer at Flash R&D is to analyse customer requirements in a team, design and then implement outlined designs in our own software package. In practice, this means writing software programs ranging from small alarm systems to large control room systems for municipalities, chemical companies, museums, zoos and amusement parks, among others.”

How long have you been doing this work?

“Almost nine years already! Before this, I worked for a software secondment company and back then I was looking for a telecom company interested in developing its own product, its own software. I picked Cuna International. Flash and Cuna used to be competitors, but five years ago we joined forces to become one family.”

Which part of your job do you enjoy the most?

“That Flash R&D gives you the opportunity to develop your ideas. The great thing about software is that you can make everything you need in the digital world. After your proof-of-concept, you can link your creation to the hardware. The software program is the brain behind the system; it controls the hardware, which then communicates with other physical devices within the network. Communication takes place via the Cloud, radio or landline.”

What has changed in the past few years?

“In recent years, our software has been constantly growing and  our programs now run on the Cloud, as an App on smartphones, on Windows PCs and Linux single board computers.”

Finally, what do you like the most about Flash and why?

”It feels like family. It just feels very good. On the team we keep each other on our toes and we continue to do better work: customer satisfaction is our top priority.”

  • Father of Justin (6) and Isabella (8). Married to Becky.
