  • WEAR THE CUSTOMER’S SHOES: Help resolve technical issues and blockers for internal and external customers

  • EMPOWER OTHERS: Collaborate with colleagues on a small, energetic team



Why?

Studio is part of a larger industry trend that is helping change the definition of a developer to include anyone who has the builder mentality.
