How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has changed for the better while I’ve been at AffiniPay. After a year here, I switched from engineering to the product department. My manager helped identify this opportunity after I expressed an interest in taking a more customer-facing role. This sort of movement is encouraged and has allowed many folks to grow in their careers.
