What do you enjoy most about working at Clarity?
I enjoy how every day is different but the focus on our customers remains constant. I have the freedom to help our clients with strategic vision, software architecture, cloud strategy, business impacts and technical innovation. We embrace the right amount of modern technology to deliver quality and keep our skills continually evolving. I’m free to set my own path here, and contribute to my company and my career in ways that are most compelling to my personal interests.

What do you think is the biggest trend in software development today?
I believe we’re in a once-in-a-generation transition right now to cloud technology. There is an immense amount of information to absorb as cloud platforms evolve, and I love the challenge of staying up to date on Microsoft Azure and other cloud platforms. Developer productivity is rocketing forward, and today’s developers are becoming DevOps “cloud professionals” as the line between software, architecture and IT blurs.
