Our Business Technology department works hand-in-hand with all of the other divisions within Power, developing our NITRO platform to support the internal operations of the entire company.
For example, one team recently revitalized our large corporate directory, adding some flavor with gifs. Another team developed a new internal workflow program for the communications and branding department. When the HR department wants to roll out new benefits, our devs are the ones building those features from scratch.
