How long have you been employed by Ag Leader? 9 years
What are the different positions you have held at Ag Leader? Software Engineer for roughly eight years, Development Lead for close to one year. I’m also acting as the Scrum Master for one of our Scrum teams.
How have you seen Ag Leader and precision ag as a whole change during your time here?
Ag Leader has grown considerably since I started, both in product lines and as a business. The adoption of Scrum as an engineering process has caused the products to be slimmer and focused on meeting the core needs of our customer while eliminating waste and making them easier to use. Precision Ag has gone further into developing smarter, easier to use solutions that are taking advantage of the latest computing technologies available.
What is your favorite thing about working here?
There is a culture of improvement at Ag Leader, and everyone is constantly asking what can we do to improve and what could we have done differently. I enjoy being an active participant in the growth of a company.
What do you do in your free time?
Anything with my kids and their activities, coordinator and head coach for First Lego League and FLL Jr teams, playing board games, and watching Netflix.
