What Daniel Does
Director, Software Development
Daniel spends half his time managing timelines and prioritizing projects to meet safety and passenger experience requirements of customers. Once he’s organized, Daniel regroups with his team for a morning meeting before doing individual work—like writing and testing software. Though he loves digging into projects, like the carry-on explosive detector, Daniel oversees up to four projects at once.
