I enjoy working with business folks (marketing. product managers, sales) to see an application/service become useful and helpful to its users (and my business' customers) and that they can produce a profit. I find that often those folks are my greatest allies since in the end we both want to produce great applications and satisfied customers.
As 2015 begins, I have been in a new role for about 5 months. I am leading up Spark Pay Technology team, this current entails three development and one devops teams. It has been months of new challenges and incredible times of learning about myself and gaining insights. 2014 was a year of delivery. I lead a small team to add and migrate our customers to a new vendor that had high business value and enabled us for greater long term feature and functionality growth. It is a critical part of our infrastructure and our changes had little to no customer impact. After that I worked with various parts of Capital One to add the ability to redeem rewards at Spark Pay merchants. This was launched into a small pilot in November 2014. In the next few months, I will need to continue to learn how to balance leadership of people and teams with building products and delivering them to market.Last Update: Jan 24 2015
