Reno, Nevada — February 4, 2021 –Talage, a provider of digital distribution software solutions for commercial insurance, is pleased to announce a significant investment in expansion of the company’s engineering team.
Led by CTO Brian Pullin, Talage recently added Scott Fritzinger as Principal Software Engineer, Roger Keller as Senior Software Engineer, and Natalie Arnold, Johnny Belcher, Krishna Patel, Raja Singh, and Ryan Young as Engineers. These new team members bring specific recent expertise with secure embedded devices, front-end and back-end development using Node.js, full-stack SaaS development, and mobile app development.
“With a significant number of carrier integrations and agency implementations in the pipeline, these team additions are part of an aggressive growth plan,” said Adam Kiefer, CEO of Talage. “It is important to us to keep all areas of the company moving forward, if engineering falls behind, the product or the customer experience could suffer. This is Talage keeping our eye on the proverbial ball.”
