Meet the Team
We asked everyone "What's one thing about you everyone should know?"
"I once presented on stage at The Kennedy Center with acupuncture needles in my head and face...Oddly, my talk was not about acupuncture."
Senior Application Security Engineer
"I wear eyeglasses."
Senior Director, Customer Experience
"I attempted a start up magazine catering to the South-Asian community called Masala Corner back in college. Didn't last long, but it was fun!"
Lead Data Engineer
"Whenever I travel, I bring back local hot sauces for my collection. I now have about 60 varieties, with bottles from places such as China, South Africa, and Chile."
Data Product Manager
"When I was young and my parents wanted alone time, they would leave an open book in the upstairs hallway and send me to get something from my room. "
"I proposed to my wife in Sedona, Arizona on a hiking trail called Devil's Bridge. Some thought that was a bad idea, but it made for some amazing pictures!"
Software Engineer in Test
"I once spent my entire layover in Memphis looking for the cardboard cutout of Tony Allen that welcomes travelers to the Memphis Airport."
Senior Experience Designer
"I won 1st place in the only bake off I’ve ever entered—it was the first time in my life that I made my Mom’s pumpkin bread, and probably the last time! #batting100"
Principal Native Applications Engineer
"As a teenager, I made lunches for 3 future Super Bowl ring wearers while working at a golf course snack bar. I also got to see them play at Woody Hayes' last game."
"I still own a 80’s computer that works with a 8-inch floppy drive."
Travel Specialist, ARC/TRAMS
"I have traveled to more than 20 countries and climbed the Great Wall twice!"
Get to know us
