Jack’s Story: I am an App Developer at CGI

Dallas native, Jack Strickland was drawn to the small community of Ruston, LA and chose to attend Louisiana Tech University to pursue his digital degree. During his college years, he fell in love with the culture of Louisiana, but always felt he had to leave to find his dream job in the tech industry.

During his senior year, Jack attended a college career fair and met the global, digital company CGI.  After graduating in computer science, he accepted a position on the CGI team as an Applications Developer – at one of the two Lafayette, LA locations. Jack found his dream digital job in Louisiana!

Jack enjoys the agile team environment at CGI. It encourages information sharing and teamwork and promotes mentor/mentee relationships for professional growth.

In his off-time, Jack enjoys all the amenities life in Louisiana has to offer – attending local festivals, football and the Southern hospitality.
