What makes someone successful on your team?

The most successful people are flexible and open to new ideas. Our industry, and even our individual roles, are constantly changing, so an ability to adapt and pick up on new clients, new processes, and new company goals is essential.

What projects are you most excited about?

We are excited to be moving towards a micro services architecture which will allow us to create modular applications which are easier to build, maintain and deploy. We are re-architecting our front end to utilize newer UI frameworks. We are working on encrypting sensitive consumer data. We are also working on making our applications cloud ready.
