It’s 3:00 on Friday afternoon, and I am wrapping up my third week here at Volano Solutions. It’s been just long enough that I am starting to feel at home, but not so long that I’ve forgotten why motives or reasoning for joining this lot. The short answer is because I have failed to find anyone to pay me for this superfecta of passions – running, knitting, beer tasting, and gardening. The long answer is a bit more complex.
I first became acquainted with Rod and Don a few years ago, and have long respected and admired their business “credo”. You might sum it up as “work hard, play hard”, but there’s really a lot more to it. Kelly does a great job defining Volano’s dogma here:
Volano’s core values are simple. Learn. Complete your work. Take Pride in your work. Adapt. Have fun.
In my very short tenure at Volano I have truly enjoyed becoming a part of a company that lives what they profess to be, and working with such a great group of developers…and Kelly. 🙂
Side note – if you are interested in hiring me to run while knitting, drinking beer, and gardening, please do let me know. I am sure Rod and Don would love to hear my pitch on how to break into this untapped market. Happy Friday!

We work with many clients in the manufacturing vertical and during our time spent with them, we noticed a challenge with synchronization with their dealers.
