Welcome to the team Steven, What do you find most exciting about Opsani as a product and a company?

I love the fact that the Opsani Solution is so unique in its capabilities. We are a small Series A company doing something that no one else on the market is currently doing. This obviously presents its challenges in selling to an audience that has no idea about our solution, but that is also what makes it so exciting and rewarding.

What are your favorite things about Opsani’s team and work culture?

I really appreciate the unique company culture that comes with a small startup like Opsani. It’s that “everyone knows everyone”, sort of feeling. Working with a really awesome group of people, all with the common goal of using our technology to help businesses all over the world.

What’s your favorite activity to do when you’re not working?

When not working, I love to get outside and enjoy nature. Whether that be surfing, camping, hiking, fishing, or crashing into people on the rugby field, I love experiencing it. All my day to day tasks, thoughts, and problems melt away when I do these things, and I feel I can return to the craziness of everyday life with a fresh perspective every time.

What’s the best advice you were given?

“If the wave breaks here, don’t be there! Or you’re gonna get drilled.”

How would you explain what Opsani does to a total tech noob?

Finding a way to explain to my family and friends what my company does has become almost a daily necessity. “Oh sales, so cool, well what do you sell?” 

“Well, grandma, I sell a solution that leverages AI and Machine Learning to continuously and autonomously optimize applications running in the cloud, tuning the resources and parameters around the applications that previously were meant to be done by hand.” Always a great conversation.
