Q. What do you like most about the company so far?
A. Two things stand out to me. From a company, business, and product perspective, I really enjoy having the opportunity to work with our product/solutions and account teams to talk to customers and see firsthand how Aviatrix is helping to solve their problems. It’s clear from these conversations that there are gaps in the existing technologies available in the market, and Aviatrix has a compelling platform and product roadmap to help solve those problems. From an engineering perspective, there are lots of challenging problems to solve and the team at Aviatrix moves quickly to deliver.
Q. Is there anything else you’d like to mention that a prospective employee (or someone looking to join your team) may find interesting?
