I chose Lori1 because I wanted a new challenge that would allow me to expand my knowledge and skills. This work is right up my alley. I get to work on all aspects of development lifecyle, not just the mobile app. There’s a lot of diversity, and I’m continually growing in my role.

The Watershed is an amazing location and I love whenever I go in. And it doesn’t hurt that it's at the Waterfront so tons of places to shop.  Most importantly, though, our team’s creativity is incredible and everyone is always happy to support each other.

If I would have only 5 words to describe Lori1, I would say it’s down-to-earth, flexible, bright, diverse and humane.
