Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Some of us have been working together for 5+ years and have been there for each other during engagements, births, divorces…you name it. They have truly been my second family and my coworkers are the best part of coming to the office every day.

Amanda

Director, B&B Sales and Supply

What projects are you most excited about?

As a Software Engineer, I’m excited to rebuild an old JavaScript and jQuery STAB component into a new React based component. The goal is to update this component to our new tech stack so when consuming applications move to using Catalyst based applications we can ease the integration process.
