Vanessa

App Developer Team Lead

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m most excited about technology projects that require “building” from the ground up or from a nascent state and maturing to better accommodate a transforming organization. This allows me the opportunity to help shape the end product to accomplish or solve a problem and learn new skills as a part of the process.

Victor

Technology Vendor Program Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

I started at the firm out of college, and the training and mentorship at Fisher Investments were critical to my development. The firm emphasizes building depth and breadth in individuals, and I have experienced this first hand. Sometimes this has been taking a new position in a different area of the firm or taking on new stretch objectives.

Tyler

Project Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

When I think of accessibility, I consider how approachable I am. I aim to create a dynamic and collaborative workplace where folks feel comfortable asking questions. I value that each team member brings something different, and we created an environment where we are learning from one another, supporting unified goals and growing together.
