Employee Engagement Lead Consultant

What projects are you most excited about?

Part of my role at Arity is to enable other analytics team members by making our data easy to use. Given my geospatial background, I am most excited about the work we are doing unlocking driving behavior insights in the context of space.


Data Analytics Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Arity has so much to offer for career growth and development. Growth is a regular topic of conversation I have with my boss. We have monthly “development” conversations where we’ve plotted out my personal career goals and how to reach those goals. I also have access to a multitude of learning resources, like LinkedIn Learning and monthly Learn Days


Marketing Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Accessibility is super important to ensure everyone’s voice is heard! My favorite way to connect with the team is in-person, but Microsoft Teams messaging and video conferencing has become a vital day-to-day tool for our remote team. In addition to monthly Zoom team meetings, I also set aside office hours each week and encourage ‘walk-in’s’!


Vice President, Operational Excellence

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The biggest challenge we are tackling is identifying key traffic analytics of value to the public sector. This role is so important because these solutions involve supporting an initiative of Vision Zero, a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, and equitable mobility for all.
