An Insider's view of BHE

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The biggest problem my team is trying to solve is how to scale customer support that requires a deep content expertise. Users of our analytics platform analyze over 20 data sources and the number of data sources continues to grow. The number of our users is also growing rapidly. So, it’s a challenging problem but a fun and rewarding one.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at BHE as a Data Engineer but quickly transitioned to a Software Engineer. As I became more comfortable with our software stack, I started taking on bigger challenges with less oversight. As our team continued to grow, I was promoted to Principle Software Engineer. Now, mentorship and training are also important parts of my job.
