It's #TechThursday! Meet David, Software Engineer with our IT Transformation Team!
This week's #TechThursday is featuring David, Software Engineer with our IT Transformation team! David joined the team over a year ago and has since played a key role in Giant Eagle's IT Transformation!
What led you to a career in IT?
From a young age, I’ve always been fascinated with computers, how they work and how we can solve problems using them. It was a no-brainer for me to pursue a career in software engineering, as it put me in a position to solve those problems and make an impact within an organization.
Can you describe some current (or recent) projects you’ve worked on?
Over the past several months, I have been apart of the IT Transformation team at Giant Eagle. Our team has been tasked with exploring newer technologies and practices and then making recommendations to help guide the Company from an Information Technology perspective. We’re working to implement a set of standards and practices that will provide a solid framework across all our IT teams.
What has been your career path within Giant Eagle?
I started working at Giant Eagle a little over a year ago as a member of the Digital Commerce team. Towards the end of last year, the new IT Transformation team was formed, and I have been working with this group ever since.
Being on the IT Transformation team has given me the chance to explore newer technologies, specifically cloud computing and application lifecycle management platforms.
What is your favorite thing about working in IT/eCommerce?
I love the diverse set of problems and challenges that we encounter and then working to find solutions for them.
I also really enjoy the people I work with. I work with a great group of people, which makes work more enjoyable. Everyone is always very supportive and willing to help.
