Advanced Software Assurance Engineer
When something is working well, your approach is, “let’s make the most of it"
You know how to make the system and the resources you're given work effectively and efficiently. We support that resourceful thinking. As an organization, our approach is to progress intelligently without spending time fixing what isn't broken. We're looking for colleagues who can make the most of what we currently have and suggest new approaches only when it will make our desired outcomes more successful. When you see that something you have been doing all along has been working just as you expected it to, you view that as evidence of its success and so do we.
