As you may recall, one of the traditions we really enjoy around here is introducing you to a team member each Monday in our “New Employee Spotlight.”
Well, we were happily enjoying this ritual, when something erupted and shut down our plans: COVID-19. Even though we remained fully operational during the pandemic and pivoted in a matter of days to a 100% remote workforce, we had to pause our expansion plans for obvious reasons.
Although the pandemic is far from over, there is cautious optimism in this part of the world that the worst-of-the-worst is behind us. That means things are s-l-o-w-l-y getting back to normal, and we can once again start to pick up where we left off.
And so, today I am delighted to re-ignite the New Employee Spotlight by introducing you to a great new member of our software development team: please give a warm welcome to Dany Galarneau!
