How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Agero has provided me the opportunity to work on a number of different products and technologies, from call center to in-vehicle Telematics to web and mobile products.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our Engineering/IT teams are moving to the Amazon AWS cloud, which involves a lift/shift for some applications as well as rewriting other applications to be more micro service orientated. This effort is a huge transformation which includes new roles, training and re-thinking how IT operates as a cloud service organization.
