Software Engineer | New York, NY
Why do you love working at Bazaarvoice?
I think the biggest thing for me is that Bazaarvoice is the most tech-driven company I've seen. Our core business is driven by technology.
But we also have such a strong say in the direction of the product, where the revenue comes from. We have far more opportunities than just ratings and reviews.
I also think that the way the teams are structured is really conducive to innovation.
What do you think differentiates Bazaarvoice from other companies?
Innovation is a big one. But also the culture is fun and the people are a key component of what makes Bazaarvoice great. There are some really, really smart people here. They're all really friendly people as well, so that makes it easy to get things done.
What’s your career experience?
I started off at the UN, then I worked at Travelocity for five and a half years. So I was in the travel space, but doing similar kinds of web work for them.
What extra-curricular tech activities do you participate in?
I am involved in open-source projects. I collaborate with some of the Google engineers on a data visualization tool. And I really enjoy going to meet-ups. Tech meet-ups are huge in New York! Just taking part in the tech community, going to other companies and hanging out and seeing what they're doing.
