One of the project I'm most excited about is taking our deployment automation to the next level, including full integration tests and automated rollback. Also excited about setting up service mesh on Kubernetes.

Kyle

TL, Technical Operations

What makes someone successful on your team?

There is always a lot going on so you really want to understand what needs to be done, when it needs to be completed and what is driving the request. Getting clarification and understanding the benefits of what you are working on is key to success.

Maricela

Senior Analyst

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I steer clear of micromanagement, so my team members can develop the confidence to work at high levels, with autonomy. I want them to be confident in their decision making abilities, and cultivating open communication is key for this. Lastly, I reinforce it is okay to question why we do things a certain way, and recommend ways to improve them.

Naima

Sr MGR, Business Operations

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

One big challenge is any time we are working on a project and realize new technology is needed. We address this by starting the project with proof of concept (POC), which gives us time to properly evaluate which technologies are best, based on different criteria such as scalability, testability, maintainability, performance, learning curve, etc.
