An Insider's view of Agero

What projects are you most excited about?

“We're passionate about making the roads safer with our Driver360 mobile platform. We’ve developed crash detection technology that helps people when they're most in need, and we're using billions of miles of driving data to study crash risk factors and find ways to help people avoid crashing in the first place.”

Michael

Sr Data Scientist, Business Intelligence

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. Additionally, I’ve had leadership positions with several groups, including PMO, QA, and now Product Management, which has allowed me to learn and grow throughout my tenure.

Luke

VP, Project Management

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.
