An Insider's view of SDI Presence

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

SDI supports a healthy work-life balance & offers the right tools through our wellness program to champion my health which is very essential for me as a new parent. I always look forward to our HuddleUp team outings because they boost employee morale & help coworkers (especially those offsite) to get to know each other in a non-stressful capacity.

What projects are you most excited about?

I am most excited about the new Cyber Security offering we are working on for the West Coast. I hope to be a valued member of the SDI team and that we can bring a new line of business that has not been able to offer local governments without the use of partners in the past.
