Can you please tell us a little bit about what you do now and the path you took to get here?
I serve as engineer, architect, and SME in a group called engineering productivity @ DJ. Our mandate is to make things better and faster for the engineers in my division which is in charge of Factiva, Newswires, Risk and Compliance, and a handful of other business intelligence tools.
I started right out of college with UBS and worked there for 6 years which gave me a great foundation in enterprise software but the regulatory restrictions imposed were making development a nightmare.
I interviewed all over and Dow Jones seemed like the best mix of enterprise and startup and that turned out to be 100% true.
