We provide ongoing technical support of legacy workflows and coordinate testing efforts with a goal of delivering quality software that meets the needs of our internal user. The method we use to reach that goal is to plan, monitor, execute and report on all testing processes as we continue to grow and evolve our technology suite.

  • The flexibility to be creative and innovative whilst personally disrupting the status quo
