How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

On the Certification team, I develop exams and study content for our end users. To ensure that our exams are valid, I work with almost every team embracing their expertise and industry knowledge into the development process. It takes continuous interdepartmental collaboration to keep exam content accurate as the Relativity platform evolves.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As an Application Support Specialist, I have increased my technical knowledge in SQL database management, Network Administration, and Server Infrastructure. Prior to coming to Relativity, I had zero knowledge of e-Discovery, and now provide On-site training to our clients teaching them about the various e-Discovery tools Relativity has to offer.
