Live from SHARE 2017: Why I Chose to Launch my Career at Rocket Software

Rocket might not make any product you’ve ever heard of. They don’t have their name on any stadiums, or on the hoods of racecars and there definitely aren’t any “Rocket Music Festivals” (though that would be freaking awesome).
