Name: Brett Roberts
Title: Product Manager
Describe your role: I make sure that we build products that teams love. I typically work in the healthcare space, inclusive of clinical healthcare, emerging technologies, and health supply chains. A large part of my daily role is focused around communications up and downstream with everyone from executives to developers. Beyond steering products, I cover many administrative tasks such as writing user stories, mapping up wireframes, document creation, forecasting, budgeting, etc.
Where are you located? Austin, TX
Where did you study? I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of South Carolina and am currently pursuing a graduate certificate in Disruption Strategy from Harvard Business School.
What do you like best about working at Camber? A bit of a toss up — either the ability to work asynchronously (and they really mean it) or the great team. Every time I get a chance to talk about personal lives I’m always really impressed with what everyone here has accomplished and what they bring to the table. I love the people and the types of projects that we take on. I really feel appreciated and challenged by my fellow team members, and they are all so skilled at what they do.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself: I used to fight MMA professionally.
Favorite Camber moment: There are many great moments at Camber, but the most memorable are the many “story times with Topher.” Topher is our Senior WordPress Architect, and one of my Camber colleagues, and he has introduced me to so many interesting concepts, stories, and deep pockets of the internet through the stories that he tells. Sometimes these are really helpful to my own personal growth, and sometimes these are silly reminders of a time passed (i.e., WillowBrooks Designs.) The culture at Camber is extremely inclusive and allows us to grow and be creative as a team in fun and unexpected ways.
What are you passionate about? Learning — any and everything.
What types of projects did you work on before finding Camber? I previously led the Research and Development function for the $12B merger between Pfizer and Mylan. I also co-founded and sold a private company to a venture capital firm in less than a year after inception.
What do you like to do for fun? I like to exercise, chase my dog around with the drone, meet up with some friends for beers, travel cross country in our live-in sprinter van, and engage in algo-trading and PC gaming.
