Last week’s Pizza My Mind was hosted by CVP. CVP is a company focused on delivering tech solutions and innovative strategies to solve the needs of its clients. Big Data is a large focus of the company as well as cyber security, BizDevOps, and Secure Cloud.
CVP’s CEO Anirudh Kulkarni left a message that applies to all students. “Change Happens. Continuously.” He believes CVP is a company capable of evolving with its employees and the world in order to continue to succeed. They want to hire students who agree with this.
Francis Townsend, one of CVP’s presenters, focused on CVP’s business with the Department of Homeland Security. The company provides interfaces with several other government agencies and reports data directly to Homeland Security. CNU graduate Louis Gomez took over to discuss serverless functions with Amazon Lambda. Lambda is a step towards no infrastructure management of databases. Louis worked with this technology as well as on creating a door greeter for Amazon Echo that receives data and returns it to the CVP host. These are examples of the type of work a full time employee will take part in.
CVP employees are placed in “module” or area of focus in which their projects take place in. However, moving between modules and projects is encouraged. Each employee also possesses a PDP or Performance Development Plan. The plan works on a points system with a certain amount required to be in the plan. Elements include performance reviews, project goals, and training. A mentor is assigned in order to help every employee reach this goal as well as recognition awards.
A program known as CVP Cares Initiatives allows CVP employees to get paid for a day of service to the community and spruce up the work week occasionally.
The presentation ended as usual with a Q and A session. All three presenters were personable and answered questions excellently. They seemed passionate about their jobs and that passion will transfer well as employers. Check out CVP.
