What’s the vibe like in the office?
The entrepreneurial spirit at McDonald’s is noticeable at all levels. People inspire; people are nimble; people are team-driven; people are focused on evolving and improving. When you walk around the space, you can feel the energy that comes from collaboration and problem-solving. I am motivated to push myself every day.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?
We are providing insights and real time event data for decision making and marketing activation at a scale very few other companies can compare to. We are moving from a 1 to many CRM strategy to a 1 to 1 contextual and personalized experience for our customers and are watching our data drive the direction of feature development within McDonald’s.
