Chris Rahenkamp
Additive Manufacturing Programmer


Worked here and there, most noteworthy place was a lovely mom and pop feed store that I was at for about two years. School-wise I got an AAS in Computer Information Systems then decided to finally go out in the real world and get some experience before I continue my education. Plan is to keep working until I make it before I realize I made it.

On a completely different note my number one hobby and a contributing factor to who I am now is my pastime of dressing up like a plastic space-man. Thankfully for me some skills learned there have been useful here at Avid.

What’s your secret ambition?

I want to become the fastest gun this side of the Mississippi, then cross the Mississippi and see what happens.

If you were a brand, what would be your motto?

“A rushed product is forever bad.”

What’s your favorite 90s jam?

Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta by Geto Boys, it’s too good and all my other picks turned out to be 80s songs.

What do you love about working at Avid?

Great community, smart people, and fun toys. It’s like being thrown in the briar patch for me.

What’s the best engineer (or inventor) joke you’ve heard?

I’m pretty sure 1 + 1 = 2, but in this case I think we should say it’s 3 just to be safe.
