How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Lead Solutions Developer / Founder ,

Salesforce / Girl Develop It Indianapolis

I get to work on a variety of projects all the time and I rarely do the same thing for very long. Some days, I'll be knee-deep in code. Other days, I might spend time whiteboarding with my team, working on design wireframes, or giving a presentation to my department. I feel most rewarded when I get to solve a business problem with my team and see other people benefit from the work we've done.
