Featured Employee: Dustin Goodyear
Dustin is the Operations Lead of one of Groundswell’s biggest clients. He said “as soon as I got a job doing java development for a small start-up, I knew I was going to love technology and working in the field. I’ve strived to find the same team atmosphere wherever I went, and in Groundswell, I have been able to not only find it, but be a driver of the team culture and a strong contributor on many fronts”. He enjoys the people he works with and the team environment Groundswell supports. Not only has his technical career grown but Groundswell has provided him with an abundance of both internal and external training to foster his growth as a person and a professional, now supporting multiple technologies/projects.
"The degree of loyalty from Groundswell to its employees is unbelievable. My personal growth is extremely important to my manager and there’s a regard for people’s welfare here that I’ve never experienced before at a company of this size."
