Director of Product Development
As the Director of Product Development at Avasis, Sloan Urry has his hands in all aspects of the software development life cycle. Sloan came onboard with a background in the construction industry and a clear understanding of the issues that could, and needed to, be solved. Sloan has a genuine aptitude toward technology which has been honed over the past two years with Avasis. Sloan was intended to be a business analyst for the product features but has shown his ability to not only fill that role but coordinate and communicate with the development team to ensure proper execution. His ability to learn on the job and acquire tools, such as JIRA, Azure, and Sketch, to facilitate the process have enabled him to be successful. From feature idea conception, technical specification writing, wireframe and design, backlog management/prioritization to deep root cause analysis, Sloan does it all with expediency and efficiency. As he dives into the details, he maintains a clear ‘big picture’ to ensure things are moving in the right direction.
