How long have you worked at Examity?
I have worked at Examity for over a year. 

What is your role at Examity, and why do you find it gratifying?
I am a Principal Engineer in charge of Security and Compliance. One of my main responsibilities is the issuance of Examity’s SOC 2 Report, which is an auditing procedure that ensures that service providers securely manage data to protect the interests of organizations and the privacy of clients. As part of this, I develop controls and draft policies that are important for security. I also draft responses to customers and prospective customers around how we securely manage their data, and I participate in contract negotiations with customers and vendors. Because of this, I get involved with many aspects of the company, and I am helping to mature the organization as it continues to grow.

Why do you love working with your colleagues?
There are a lot of very bright people at Examity. They are open, friendly, and inquisitive. They also want to do the right thing to make a better product for our customers and to make Examity a better place to work. I am continually learning from them, and I hope they are also learning from me.

What was the most unexpected challenge that you faced when first starting with Examity?
There have been some technical aspects of the environment that I was not expecting. Nothing difficult, just unexpected.

What advice do you have for prospective Examity employees?
Examity is a great place to grow your skills, learn from others, and contribute to the growth of the product and company. Be open, listen to others, feel free and confident in yourself to comment, and add to our collective knowledge.

Fun fact your colleagues might not know about you.
Bagels have become a North American food staple. There are two well-known styles: New York and Montreal. Many food critics agree with me that Montreal is the best. And why do I think it is the best? Because it was my great grandfather Chaim who introduced bagels to Montreal about one hundred years ago. As a teenager, I would get three dozen bagels for Sunday morning breakfast, but only two dozen would make it home!
