"The work we do is akin to how a detective would solve a crime or how a mechanic would repair your car. Our time is dedicated to investigating problems and finding the root cause of the issue. Sometimes the solution is easy, other times we will do a deep dive into complex matters to find a solution while ensuring we continue to preserve the integrity of existing features."
