What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

It’s amazing to be able to work in an architectural framework where we can negotiate between speed to market and a solid application – software that is well-built, well-designed, well-tested. I find this negotiation both challenging and exhilarating.

MacGregor

Lead Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

I’ve been with Caterpillar for 20 years now, and I’ve been lucky to work on teams that have different focuses. I’ve worked on everything from engineering applications to the latest and greatest digital technology applications.

Rakshan

Digital Product Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I believe innovative solutions require experimenting, even if not all ideas are successful. My role is to help my team understand a business challenge, promote idea exchange, and encourage exploration of different approaches in search of the solution. Throughout this, we see setbacks as part of the journey to exceptional solutions

Daniela

Analytics Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

Deep learning algorithms, popularized in the past five years, allow us to scan huge volumes of data from Caterpillar's fleet of connected engines and machines for unusual patterns. We're now able to make sophisticated predictions that wouldn’t have been possible 20 years ago.
