CITES Proudly Spotlights Two Employees for Going Above and Beyond

Chenega IT Enterprise Services (CITES) is excited to proudly spotlight two well-deserving members of its team, Carlos Guevara – Software Architect, and Yagnasree Etam – Salesforce Developer. Both of these employees are key personnel in CITES Army Mobile Asset Tracker (MAT) contract, an effort that provides the Government with IT professional support and on-site technical assistance to enhance the User Interface (UI) and sustain the MAT application and overall program’s effort. Carlos and Yagnasree have been working on a critical software development effort for the last month with high visibility and importance to the future success of the MAT program. CITES is grateful to have these result drivers on its team.

“Without their efforts, the program wouldn’t be on schedule to be assessed by an authority to operate, which is a critical piece of the overall goal of the MAT software to become an official system of record for the Army,” says Taylor Urbanski, Technical Program Manager of the contract.

Carlos Guevara – Software Architect

Carlos started with CITES eight months ago. As a Software Architect, he spends a lot of his day coordinating and collaborating with all team members and attending management meetings starting early in the day. His favorite part of his job is working with a great development team to deliver pragmatic solutions to clients, which he finds to be the most fulfilling. As a family-focused individual, Carlos says, “family is my driving force in keeping up good work. It is for them that I work hard.” At the end of a long week, Carlos enjoys taking a ride down the backroads on his motorcycle to decompress.

Yagnasree, on the other hand, started with CITES approximately a year ago. Her main priorities as a Salesforce Developer are communicating and collaborating with the lead and the team to ensure deadlines are met to the functionality the customer is looking for. When asked what her favorite part of her position was, Yagnasree said, “All aspects. The work culture, communications with the team, and the focus on development.” After a long day at work, Yangasree finds comfort in playing with her kids and talking to them about how their school day went. After all, it is her family that keeps her motivated to keep up her great work ethic.

CITES could not be more appreciative of the work that Carlos and Yagna are performing and thank them immensely for being a part of their team. Great job, Carlos and Yagna!
