A Day in the Life of Setaris

One of the funny things about working for Setaris is that we all have quirky things hiding in our backgrounds. Sure, most of Setaris has a background of some sort in tech, whether it’s in coding or UX. I, however, have probably the least technical knowledge of anyone on the team (although I still manage well enough). And while Josh has degrees in Electrical Engineering, he spends more...
