What projects are you most excited about?

It’s a great time to be at Gloo. I’m working with a high powered cross functional team to tackle challenging problems. Currently, we are focused on transforming our user experience from one of “functional capabilities” into one focused on the “value stack”. We want to unify our disparate UI and data constructs into a single cohesive experience.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Gloo as a project manager, but I’ve always been good with technology. I had been with Gloo for about a year, when I spoke with my manager and Scott [CEO] about my interest in product. They helped set me up for success, supporting me on my career journey. I’ve now been a Product Owner for the last three years and love what I do.

Our mission is to serve Champions, help them scale, and support their purposes with great platform infrastructures.
