Enova Originals with David Rose
In honor of Enova’s upcoming 10-year anniversary, we’ve asked some of our longest-standing employees to look back on their time at Enova.
1. What does Enova’s 10-year anniversary mean to you?
It’s proof that individuals with dreams and work ethic can accomplish anything when they surround themselves with others cut from the same cloth.
2. What’s one way that Enova has really changed in the last 10 years?
This is a difficult question to answer, as it has changed so much! I would say that the biggest and most important change would be within the culture. As a young company in the midst of expanding, there was an urgent “get it done” mentality. But as the company grew older, the shift to a more refined, quality-driven environment helped to add balance. I believe this is one of the reasons we’ve been able to continue to grow while retaining customer loyalty.
3. What’s your favorite memory from your time at Enova?
I would have to say the original conversion to Portal, which has now been replaced with Aperture. I remember coming into work for the first few weeks after release, and seeing the development team and the CEO wearing the same clothes they had on the day before. Another time, I recall opening an office door to find one person coding at their desk and another sleeping on the floor. Those were wild and exciting times filled with talk of the future and all of its possibilities.
