I helped drive the technology and innovation at Real Matters, which went IPO in 2017. One of the largest "tech" IPO in recent years. In every company I've worked for, I often wear many hats, because I'm versatile and clever, and have varied interests. At CDC (aka Truition), I often would sell a set of features, help implement them, and ship them out the door. I care about customers, and my team-mates, because it's what drives our success.
I would like to work in a space where it is an interesting product or service we are offering, that is disruptive to status-quo, and adds value to end consumers; I enjoy working in small teams with people who are creative problem solvers.
