An Insider's view of NBCUniversal

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Exciting! We all pass the vibe check! Great conversations between all levels regardless of role or title.


Scrum Lead, Operations & Technology

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We have multiple projects that are complex and require a good coordination of resources from multiple teams. While this is challenging, I have to give kudos to every member of our team that works very hard on these projects while working on day-to-day troubleshooting tasks.


Principal Site Reliability Engineer, Operations & Technology

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at NBCU as a QA Analyst, testing the NBC Sports App on multiple Platforms, and in 2019, I was promoted to Sr. QA. During my time on this team, I supported Monday Night Football, 2 Superbowls and 4 Olympic Games (and even won an Emmy for the Rio Olympics in 2016!) In Feb of 2022, I moved to Peacock OneApp and I was promoted to manager.


Manager, Quality Assurance, Peacock

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

I encourage my team to do research and approach their tasks from different perspectives. I reward success, but I also remind them that failure is a great learning experience.


Engineering Manager, Peacock TV

What are some social events your company does?

Our Employee Resource Groups have hosted such a variety of events, both virtually and in-person. I’ve had a chance to attend paint nights, pumpkin carving, one-on-one speed networking dates with other women in tech, movie premiere events and learning about different cultures/cuisines in celebration of AAPI month! There’s always something going on!
