"As an ESOP, we're big on the "ownership mindset", which usually means high quality client deliverables. For me, a mother of an infant and a toddler, ownership is the empowerment to prioritise my homelife while still enjoying a challenging career. Ownership for me is that ideal work/life balance that I've never experienced anywhere else."View More

"The benefit of working here is that the job is really cool; the work is really cool. Working in both the field and the office gives me that good split. The field work is technical and I enjoy that and it can also be physical. There are always aspects of the work that are ever-evolving."Francisco Reina
