An Insider's view of StrongArm Technologies

What’s the vibe like in the office?

StrongArm feels like a family. The office is open, relaxed and comfortable. Our people are warm, and invested in each other both personally and professionally. Everyone laughs daily. Noone eats lunch alone. We move fast and demand hard work, but we always achieve our goal by helping teammates go to another level.

Siva

Data Scientist

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We run a relatively flat organization which is our key to driving true innovation. We chase the fastest path to insight not the fastest path to a solution. In order for that to work, everyone needs to check their egos at the door, everyone needs to be on the same page and everyone owns their work. Our cultural values reflect those principles.

Sean

CEO & Founder

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are building a data pipeline with Spark that solves problems like dynamic scaling, schema evolution, cluster monitoring, data quality analysis, and ML empowerment. These problems require a wide range of skills. It keeps me excited to come to work every day, knowing there’s a problem waiting for me which will teach me something new.
