Q: What is your position at RapidSOS?
A: I’m a backend developer.
Q: Why did you want to work at RapidSOS?
A: I wanted to work at a small company where I would have a large impact. I also wanted to work for an organization whose mission was beyond just trying to make a profit. RapidSOS is working to save lives and I love that I am a part of that.
Q: What is the best part about working at RapidSOS?

Q: Where do you see RapidSOS in 5 years?

Q: What is the most interesting project you have ever worked on?
A: My senior design project in college was working on an algorithm that uses GPU computing to compile hours and hours of security video into a 10 minute long video. That way, people who have to watch the security footage can watch all the important events that happened in just 10 minutes, without having to fast-forward over and over again.
Q: What is the best part about living and working in NYC?
A: You can go anywhere at any time… and there are unlimited options when you are deciding what to eat.
