Spud at U of M-Flint Career Fair 2019
Spud's first Career Fair of 2019 went down February 20th at the University of Michigan - Flint. With two of our team members representing Spud, it was exciting to see the next generation as they venture into the next phase of building their career. As the adventure of the Career Fair started, Jason and Jessica took on the frenzy of students and alumni who flooded the space right next door to us in Flint, MI, at the Riverfront Conference Center
The Spud reps spoke to numerous young adults who were looking to take the next step of their career. Many of the students studying Computer Science were looking for an opportunity to learn and grow as Developers. We like to make it simple as to what characteristics we are looking for with our candidates. As described above we are searching for motivated, enthusiastic, proactive, experienced, articulate, and organized people to join our team!
In a fast-paced, yet casual environment here at Spud, we are looking for individuals who are willing to grow with our company. Our culture is best defined by our team atmosphere and process based environment. As our motto states, we "Work Hard, Play Hard."

Team Spotlight - Welcome to Spud!
Spud Software welcomes two new awesome team members to our Spud family; Chris Merz and Jason Watson. We are expanding our Spud team while multiplying our reach in the neighboring communities of Grand Blanc. Making a positive impact in our community is one goal that is particularly important to us at Spud Software. We hire local and serve the local community. Let's get to know the new team members.
Chris Merz is the new General Manager of Spud Software and brings with him a world of experience as a former Marine. In service to our country, Merz held a position as a Weather Observer in the Marine Corp. After the Marine Corp, he has held many positions in IT, that eventually lead to IT Director. Merz loves a challenge and says, "I have done most jobs out there; I have a very diverse background."
As a native Michigander and father of four children, Merz loves to spend time up-north when he is outside of the office. He is a proud Scout Master for his son and stays busy with two black labs, two cats and fifty fish. During the winter months, Merz is a Ski Patrol for Mount Holly.
We asked Chris what drew him to Spud and he replied, " What brought me to Spud is simple. The work culture, the flexibility, and the proximity to my home; along with a great opportunity to help usher in new growth."
Jason Watson has joined Spud in Marketing / New Business Development. Watson also brings years of experience in his respective field. With almost twenty years' working in sales and marketing, his experience in growing businesses is unparalleled. Watson is an Alumni of Arizona State and majored in Business. We won't hold that against him - GO BLUE! GO GREEN!
Watson spends his minimal free time with his family, but especially watching movies with his son who also works for Spud. Watson also loves to do creative sketching and enjoys watching the news and staying up to date with the media.
With the combined experience of our skilled new team members, we are excited to see what 2019 will bring and to continue to provide a memorable experience for our clients. Welcome to the team, Chris and Jason!
