Meet Jason Sanchez, Software Engineering Manager at Gooten

Meet Jason Sanchez, Software Engineering Manager at Gooten

Four months is all it’s taken for Jason Sanchez to be blown away by his colleagues at eCommerce supply chain and logistics company Gooten. Jason joined Gooten in April 2021 as software engineering manager, where he oversees a team of eight engineers, product specialists and designers, working with partners to overcome a wide range of business challenges. “I am really impressed with the caliber of people that we have here,” he says. “I’m very genuine when I say that I love working with these people. I love working for Gooten because of the authentic culture that we have and our focus on our people.” Jason is an experienced engineer, having spent the last 20 years as a developer and leader in a wide range of companies. He says Gooten really does stand out for its approach to its people. “We value being able to collaborate, and going out of our way to help each other and our partners, because when they succeed, we succeed. It's acceptable to fail and learn from that experience. It's not one of those cultures where you're reprimanded for failure, it's one of those where we know we have to take risks and explore. That's how we innovate and make things better.” This approach to continuous learning really resonates with Jason’s own ethos of learning being an investment in yourself. “You reap that benefit throughout your career, and a side effect of that is the company also benefits and you can benefit the people around you too. That’s where Gooten is so great, because if there is a gap in one area, we come together to help each other out, learn, and innovate new solutions.” Jason actually fell into computer science at university, where he’d registered for pre-dentistry study. He had some friends who were studying computer science, so he enrolled in a few courses on the side, and quickly realised that he really liked it. He’s reaped the rewards too, with a varied career that’s enabled him to travel, work remotely and enjoy spending time with his two young kids. Jason says Gooten’s remote workplace really stood out for him because it allows him to continue to do that. “I’ve been working in a fully remote role for the past three years. The two hour daily grind downtown and back is pretty draining, and it’s really important to me that I spend time with my kids. “One of the core pillars of our culture at Gooten is people driven through empathy. I actually read an article on LinkedIn by our CTO, Lucas Lally, before I started. It was about the importance of managing employee welfare while working from home, which they do through empathetic leadership and communication. That was really insightful on how the human aspect was clearly important to people within Gooten, and it stems from the top leadership.” Outside work and his children, Jason has grown to appreciate travel, and has been to the likes of Malta, Russia, Ukraine, London, and Australia through his previous work. He even took up photography as a way to further capture new places and cultures, and believes it’s an amazing way to gain a rounded understanding of life. “As travel became part of my work, I really was exposed to different cultures and ways of life, and it allowed me to see different perspectives. It's great to be comfortable with where you live, and you love it. But travel gives you a better appreciation of what you have, what you don’t know, and what you haven’t explored yet.”
