What does your typical day look like?

I enjoy the variety of work that comes with being a full stack developer. One day I’m implementing elegant user interfaces along side our design team and another day I’m squeezing memory optimizations out of a distributed microservice.

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

Because every migration project is unique, partners can run into challenges and complexities with unfamiliar migration scenarios. Helping partners identify, prepare for, and resolve potential issues with these migration projects can be challenging, but is always the most rewarding part of what we do.
