An Insider's view of Amherst

What are some social events your company does?

Amherst is always participating in exciting events. From Dell Match Play to SXSW, Amherst engages in a variety of local events. We also host smaller events for employees such as summer BBQ's and happy hours. Nothing tops our holiday party, a true family celebration!

Austen

Director of Talent Programs

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about our Budget Revision Project! We were tasked with the challenge of moving a tedious process into a more user and mobile friendly system. This will allow the field teams to submit budget revisions from MSR Properties and have one system to manage the majority of their work. This excitement is why I love being a part of the team

Gage

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

“At Amherst, I am able to work collaboratively with peers who have had years of experience similar to mine. The technology is current and evolving as the company grows. Therefore, my skills stay current and always improve.”

Stan

Senior Systems Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

My team is expected to create new IP (Intellectual Property) through innovation in software, hardware, workflow process and data. Our goal is to build franchise value/shareholder value, solve difficult problems through creative solutions, and improve over-all efficiency that in turn makes life easier for all of Amherst

Todd

Chief Technology Innovation Officer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Within my first year, I have acquired solid enterprise-level knowledge in developing .NET applications by using Angular 4+, ASP.NET MVC, WPF, Entity Framework, and advanced SQL. We’re transitioning into ‘React’ apps that I'm excited about as it will add to my tech skills. I like that we have autonomy regarding the tech decisions in development
