Meet the people behind our platform

Making transportation smart takes a lot of work. While fleet management technology is on the rise, the industry has a long history of doing things the hard way. Many fleets relied on paper logs to document important information like drivers’ hours of service and vehicle inspection reports before we launched Platform Science in 2015.

Since then, we’ve worked alongside some of the nation’s top enterprise fleets to create tools that ensure efficient operations and a better driving experience. From compliance and telematics to safety and productivity, we offer a full suite of solutions that help fleets make the most of their data right out of the box.

Of course, we couldn’t have done any of this without our PlatScientists. We’d like to highlight three of our teams—Engineering, Product, and Product Operations—to share more about what they do to keep our platform and industry moving.

Engineering modern solutions

“The engineers here at Platform Science are some of the smartest, most creative, and most supportive I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. The team is really passionate about the mission and focused on delivering the best solutions possible. Everyone really comes together as a team to help each other out and get the job done.” 

-Robert Swisher, Director of Engineering

Our Engineering team is stacked with highly skilled innovators who bring a wide range of experience to our platform. Their expertise in multiple languages and frameworks—including PHP, Node, Javascript/Typescript, HTML, CSS, Ruby, Python, Go, Java, and Kotlin—enables them to work on projects spanning vehicle, mobile, and cloud apps while developing and leveraging new technologies.

Building a smarter product

“The team banded together to work on supporting a new tablet model on our platform and fleet solutions. Through constant communication and coordination with our engineering counterparts, we updated the fleet’s technology with modern data tools. In an industry that has traditionally used outdated technology, creating innovative solutions is exciting and rewarding."

-Andrea Tucker, Product Manager

We can always count on our Product team to keep our platform up to speed. Working cross-functionally with other teams throughout our organization, our Product pros are always on the lookout for new ways to improve our hardware and software. By maintaining strong connections with our customers and partners, they ensure a seamless experience for the people who use our platform.

Managing our product operations

“Product Operations is a cross-functional team of analytical problem-solvers that keep the platform operating at full speed. We're a data-driven group that strives to minimize chaos and maximize value delivery to both our internal and external customers.”

-Don Son, Senior Vice President of Product Operations

Then there are the smooth operators who make up our Product Operations team. As specialists in both internal and external operations, they help us keep the peace behind the scenes and across the screens. Whether they’re sharing product updates with our partners, solving IT issues for our team, or tightening up our internal processes, our Product Ops team is the glue that holds us together—even when we’re apart.

Reunited and it feels so good

After more than a year away from the office, our San Diego team recently reunited at our company headquarters. While we all love our daily Zoom meetings, it was nice to finally reconnect in person. We’re still proceeding with caution, but we look forward to more events like this and hope you’ll be able to join us in the near future.
