Employees deserve constant recognition for their hard work and I believe in celebrating individual wins on a daily basis.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration is in Sisense’s DNA. Sales helps my team grow, bringing in new projects, so we return the favor when they need references or technical advice to help close a deal. R&D helps us develop solutions, so we provide them feedback to improve our product. There’s always a new challenge, but everyone is willing to pitch in.

How does the company support your career growth?

Sisense hosts a program that discusses our internal mobility process and skills development to advance your career to the next level. I expressed my interest in a role on the People team in our new San Francisco office, and now I'll be relocating to help grow the engineering team there!

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

Delivering an effective BI solution requires data modelling, product customization, and our API to meet customer requirements.
