As software developers, there are many different types of companies we can work at. We met up with the Elixir Wizards crew to learn more about working at a Software Agency like SmartLogic. We compare what this is like vs working at a product company. Of course, we take the opportunity to learn more about Sundi Myint and Owen Bickford, their journeys to Elixir and the work they are doing now. Sundi shares how becoming an Engineering Manager presented new growth opportunities and Owen goes deeper on the ETL system he's creating to migrate an MSSQL DB to Postgres and how gets to play with Broadway in the process.
