An Insider's view of BHE

How does your team reward individual success?

BHE rewards individual success with fair promotions and increased responsibilities. I started 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. Later, I was promoted to Principle Software Engineer.

Principle Software Engineer

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.

VP of Analytics & Scientific Engagement

We have an incredibly talented team here at BHE who all learn from each other's experiences to evolve the product and infrastructure. To be successful here, you've got to be team-oriented, motivated, and eager to learn. Those with exceptional attention to detail and problem-solving skills are highly valued.
