Every once in a while you get handed a project that brightens your day. Maybe it’s because the purpose supports something you value, like our upcoming 3reasons.org blog for Bob Lee, who rides 6,500 miles cross-country to raise awareness of the challenges faced by Cancer patients, ALS victims and our families faced with end-of-life issues.
Or, maybe it’s something that is fun to build, like our Google IG Rate Watch Gadget. We have an awesome team of web developers here at Quicken Loans, including Kevin, Zack, Joe, Christina, and Paul, all who contributed to making this gadget happen. I got to sit back and watch them pour their passion into figuring out the best way to build it. That was really cool for me!
In fact, this gadget was just mentioned on netbanker.com, as one of the most popular financial gadgets in Google’s offering. The public relations geek in me enjoys seeing articles like this… yet another reason it’s a cool project.
What’s your idea of a cool project?
