What is a Functional Consultant?

We’re business analysts, low code developers, solution architects, stakeholder and project leads, data engineers, technical salespeople, test managers, trainers and more.

It’s not an easy career- we work hard, we tackle difficult problems and we commit to continuously learning and growing in our skills and knowledge but we love it because it’s challenging, rewarding and different every day.
