Why is what you do important?

I think protecting people as they use their mobile devices on a daily basis is important. I don’t think I would go a day without having my device with me and I don’t really know anybody who would these days. I think today there’s more exposure to attacks and compromises than ever before, for both people and organizations. I also love supporting our team. There’s an awful lot of work that needs to be done and a limited number of people with the right skillset out there... READ FULL EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT

What is one of your favorite projects you’ve worked on at Lookout?

I’ve been really lucky because I’ve worked on a lot of projects in my time here, but the last big program I worked on was our Mobile Threat Protection launch to the public. It’s one of my favorites because when I joined the team, it was only made up of eight or nine people. Now, that team has grown to around 40 people with four different Scrum teams, and I got to be there through that growth. It was an opportunity to really shape the team and the product.This was a brand new, and very important project and product for us. Alongside the team, I got to identify what Mobile Threat Protection would look like in terms of features and functionality set, and helped determine the schedule and drove the delivery...

How has your team helped you or what is one of your favorite memories/anecdotes from the team?

One of the biggest skills my team helped me learn was testing. I hadn’t gotten into a habit of code testing when I first came out of my boot camp program years ago. I had done a little bit of it, but my team, and Lookout, really demands that code work as well as possible before it ever gets into quality assurance’s hands. They helped me set up tests, which changed the way I looked at writing my code. Here’s how it works: the product team gives us the expectations for that product or feature. You take those expectations and write them into your test. Effectively your code is going to fail all of those expectations at first, but then one by one you make them pass and can rest at the end knowing that your project works the way you wanted. It’s not a complete failsafe, but it’s a cool method of writing code that I learned solidly from my team. The nice thing is, Lookout’s whole engineering organization uses the same kind of methodology, so if you transfer teams like I did, you can carry your coding practice with you. That’s something I’m really thankful for....READ FULL EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT
