What does career growth look like on your team?

Each person is empowered to make choices every day that have direct impact on everyone's success. All ideas are given fair consideration. In my 5+ years here I have seen great career growth - everything from junior engineers right out of college up to highly experienced leaders encouraged to take that next big step.

Tanner Means

Senior Software Development Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I constantly ask what is speeding them up or slowing them down. I ask for things to be thought of as "what if" and "why not". Oftentimes, especially in a team setting, a solution is simpler than expected. Collectively, we can solve most problems on our own, but for the things that need muscle or grease, I make those my priority.
