A Call to Remove the Ban:
As many of you know, HEVO employs people from all walks of life. We are represented by Jews, Christians, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Agnostics, Atheists and other religious belief systems throughout our small 15 person company. As I write this, I am pained to be planning the loss of our CTO (Chief Technology Officer), because his his family lives in Niagara Falls, Canada, and he is of Pakistani origin. He works full-time in our Brooklyn labs and goes back to Canada every couple of weeks to be with his family. Soon, he will be going home to spend Valentine’s Day with his amazing wife of 10 years and two wonderful children. There’s a high likelihood he will not be able to return to our team in Brooklyn, because of the Muslim ban (yes, Pakistan and Canada are not on the list…yet). So, we are having to plan an alternative technology development strategy for him to work solo from Niagara Falls if he cannot return.
