In his current role at Exactus Advisors, Steve aids in the creation of software for an industry that suffers from heavy technical debt with outdated systems and capabilities. Through new technological development, Exactus is providing analytical functionality to enhance clients’ business decisions on a daily basis. Steve’s ability to think like his clients and anticipate their needs helps him build the most effective system possible. His resourcefulness and pragmatism allow him to develop creative solutions to a project’s complications or obstacles.
During his time with Exactus Advisors, he has also supported a variety of other projects in a wide range of industries. From project management at a software company to building technology tools for buying groups, Steve has broadened his knowledge of companies’ technological needs and how to meet them. The most rewarding part of his time with Exactus has been being able to connect with new people in a variety of different roles to help make their businesses better. Working with everyone, from Vice Presidents to software coders, and building these relationships has been the most fulfilling part of his role.
“Steven was brought into the project near the end. He had to and was able to quickly come up to speed on all we were doing…Steven is and was a good cultural fit for Dynatrace – neither too rigid nor too loose. He kept the meetings as fun as possible, and as brief as possible. He was very helpful with keeping my project managed, offering his assistance numerous times wherever needed.”
“Due to an internal resource shift, I was a late addition to a project that Steve was managing for us. Steve was able to quickly bring me up to speed on the project, put me in touch with all of the involved business partners, and handled that transition with no detriment to the project timelines. Once underway, I could always rely on Steve to provide me with timely answers to any questions I had on project requirements, actions, timelines etc. Steve was extremely adept at handling our business users who weren’t always in communication with each other before putting forth requirements. Given that it was my first major project at Dynatrace (and I was attached late), I can state without reservation that we would not have been able to adhere our mileposts and timelines without Steve’s expert guidance.”
