Senior Solutions Architect, Professional Services

One of the things I love the most about what I do is the variety of roles I get to take. As a Technical Account Manager, I provide mentoring, architectural guidance, and technical troubleshooting assistance for Birst customers and future customers. As a Senior Solutions Architect, I lead the technical aspects of Services projects, including solution visioning, architecture, and development of the Birst back-end (Data Warehouse) and the front-end (analytics and dashboards). As the leader of the Agile Competency Working Group, I am leading the charge toward embracing Agile in all its elegant complexity by developing standards, creating documentation and training materials, evangelizing its use internally and with our customers, and acting as an Agile coach to development teams within the Services org.
