Corey Weiss may not be adept at body language or social cues, but he knows software.
Laser-focus on detail that comes with his place on the autism spectrum are part of what makes Weiss a top analyst at MindSpark, a young California firm mixing business smarts with social good.
“I see things others wouldn’t,” said 27-year-old Weiss, who was diagnosed with autism when he was a young boy.
“The greatest strength is it makes me more detail-oriented; I am more focused.”
MindSpark, located in the coastal city of Santa Monica near Los Angeles, employs analysts with autism to test software for companies.
