An Insider's view of One North Interactive

What projects are you most excited about?

I really enjoy working with “managed apps,” which keeps clients’ sites and applications the most updated. These projects enable me to get a variety of expertise in all the different platforms we support. I’m a part of all our clients’ implementations, which is challenging and rewarding, and enables me to work with all kinds of clients and teams.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Employees are most successful when they connect our business goals to their personal growth and career goals. One North continues to evolve in a strategic way to develop quality solutions for our clients’ most complex business challenges, so we’re always looking for new ideas and approaches to solve problems.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?
