An Insider's view of Vestmark, Inc.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

It’s my job to educate users on the best ways to use our product. While anyone can push the buttons, I always ask “why?” and “what is the user trying to accomplish?” I'm not only demonstrating the product, but also the value it adds to the workflow of the customer. By interacting with users, we are not just teaching but also learning.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My time at Vestmark has been like a "choose your own adventure" novel. I joined the company as a mid-level software engineer but have since grown into the role of a technical lead, to an engineering manager, and now helping to drive our agile transformation. I truly believe that Vestmark thinks that I should be in the driver's seat of my career.
