Reuben R.
IT Manager

 

As an IT manager and seasoned self-help geek, I’m intensely curious about what engages people, what makes work fulfilling and how teams can achieve their full potential. DriveTime’s high performance culture is a perfect outlet for that curiosity. Every day I get to work with intelligent and talented personalities that challenge me as a manager and humble me as a person. I think what attracts those types of people to DriveTime is the chance to work on cutting-edge projects that push the automotive industry forward while being valued for who they are.

Luckily, Arizona has a lot to offer outside work as well. I generally gravitate towards Phoenix’s vibrant Latin dance community or the world class mountain bike trails of Sedona. As a former professional musician I also get my fill of live music at local venues and festivals. Additionally, as an equities day trader, Phoenix’s time zone makes it possible to trade in the morning before local working hours while the US stock exchanges are open.
