Insider's spotlight

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined BigCommerce impassioned to help small businesses. After spending a year answering support calls from our customers, I jumped on the opportunity to rebuild the support website. Shortly after completing that project I moved into engineering full time. I now help lead our website team to help new customers get started on BigCommerce.

Some of my favorite social events are the ones where BigCommerce gives back. Whether it's collecting gifts for children in need during the Holidays or rebuilding homes after Hurricane Harvey, the community service social events foster the deepest sense of pride in this company and create the longest lasting friendships.
