I'm a Data Engineer on BrainGu's rapid prototyping team. Data Engineers have much overlap with Software Engineers but focus more on the underlying data and how software interacts with it. For BrainGu prototyping, I take data from many different sources and convert it into something usable.
A Little Slice of Gu
The art of being a good leader is equally craved by individuals and organizations. True leaders build healthy, highly cohesive, highly functional teams. Well led teams are motivated to work harder, accomplish more, and enjoy greater levels of happiness and satisfaction across all aspects of their lives, than those simply serving under a “manager.”
WIDOW was the first project I was assigned to at BrainGu. I helped build this baby from its inception and it’s a project I’m very proud of. WIDOW has been used throughout multiple exercises such as WISNT, Orange/Red Flags, and Northern Edge. I have been lucky enough to fly over to help our Airmen navigate through our app and to receive crucial feedback for the app. WIDOW has since received numerous praises for speeding up communication by digitizing the mission planning process. Saved time = saved lives when it comes to making split-second decisions on the battlefield. I cannot believe our Airmen were using white boards and excel sheets to plan out missions! Not many developers can say that they have made a significant impact in the US DoD and I’m proud to serve our country.
BrainGu is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for 2021. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at BrainGu. This year, 86% of employees said it’s a great place to work – 27 points higher than the average U.S. company.
BrainGu is excited to announce that they have been approved as a DoD PlatformOne Authorized Reseller available through the PlatformOne Basic Ordering Agreement. This partnership will continue to build on the leadership role BrainGu has already undertaken in the PlatformOne DevSecOps software and platform development community. This opportunity enables BrainGu to commercialize PlatformOne capabilities throughout the private sector. It also allows BrainGu to expand the usage of PlatformOne capabilities within the U.S. government.
When we were founded, we focused on creating the best, custom-developed tools for our clients. Over time, we realized that many of our clients were fighting similar battles. They were moving from legacy technology solutions to cloud-native ones; or they were large, federated organizations needing to develop applications quickly, reliably, and on the same tech stack. We realized that this was a problem that we’d already solved multiple times and that we should develop that solution for the commercial market. This idea became Structsure.
