What projects are you most excited about?

Any of our new projects. We are constantly trying to innovate and enter new markets. For a long time the SimpliCam was my favorite project, I was involved in the development from the ground up. Our new doorbell and locks are exciting new projects that present new sets of technical problems to solve.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've changed roles twice since starting as a call center representative for SimpliSafe in 2013. I became a QA Engineer in 2016, and at the beginning of 2018 moved into my current position as the Product Manager for our flagship security system. SimpliSafe has afforded me many opportunities that I don't think I could have gotten at other companies.
