Tech Firm Sees Benefit From Employees On The Spectrum


PALO ALTO, Calif. — Pick a date, any date in history, and Joe Cintas can tell you, with only a moment’s pause, what day of the week it was.

Diagnosed with autism at age 3, Cintas wields astonishing brain power when it comes to numbers and finding patterns, but, like many with his disability, his talents often have been overlooked in the workplace. Despite having a college degree in environmental studies, he spent the past 14 years pushing carts as a grocery store clerk before finding his niche at SAP, where he makes good money testing medical software for bugs.
