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.

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.
