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

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.
