Insider's spotlight

How does your team reward individual success?

Our team acknowledges individual success and provides an environment to further new ideas. The team then ensures higher management is aware of your contribution. These accomplishments become part of the individual’s and team’s record at the end of the year. This approach I believe has led to a lot of innovations on my team.

Network Engineer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

I work with huge volumes of data and my goal is to make that data useful to others. Some days this means getting into the nitty gritty of network hardware & protocols. Other days I’m building infrastructure to store & process it. But the days I enjoy the most, I’m building data visualization & exploration tools to help people make sense of it all.

Joe

Software Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

We’re free to choose the technology stack that best solves each individual problem, so the learning happens project to project. I started programming in C#, but changing teams exposed me to a new suite of languages that I’m now working in regularly
