Office Spotlight: Denver, CO

This week, we want to highlight our Denver, CO Office for living out one of our core values: We Improve!  When learning and the pursuit of knowledge stops, growth and progress is hindered.  Denver recently unveiled a Resource Room for all team members to enjoy to help foster an environment of continuous learning.  The Resource Room is designed to help team members continue their professional development by providing a mini library that is readily available and easily accessible.  The library features a variety of books that team members can check out and read at their leisure, with topics ranging from technical information to personal and leadership development.

The Resource Room also provides team members with a chance to unplug and refuel by giving a “break” from working at the computer.  During breaks, team members can use the Resource Room to play games, read, or enjoy complimentary snacks on a comfy couch.  Thank you, Denver team members, for your continued pursuit of excellence!

Team Member Profile: Michael E.

Hometown: Virginia Beach, VA

Position: Support – Tier 1 Team Lead

Been with InMotion Hosting since: October 2015

 

How have you enjoyed working in the web hosting industry since starting at InMotion Hosting?

Since my start at InMotion Hosting, I’ve had a blast in the web hosting industry. I was a self taught web designer so I knew thing or two about a thing or two or so I thought until I began working here. InMotion open up a whole new world of things to get into.

What is your current role at InMotion Hosting? What do you like most about it?

My current role at InMotion Hosting is Team Lead. I love helping other reps on the floor resolve their issues. I love the fun atmosphere and laid back environment, did I mention the food? The food here is great free lunches and I eat at my desk! I would have to say the main thing is that Ive been blessed to work with great people.

What was the training process like?

I struggled at first with the training , I started out in the Tier 1 Pipe line. I had amazing teachers and tons of help everywhere . I just had to find the drive to be a self starter and learn new things. I had to keep a positive attitude and and open mind. I asked a ton of questions, and no matter how simple they were to the people I was asking, I still wasn’t treated wrong or made to feel anything but encouraged.

Coolest gadget you own, want to own or have read about?

Mirraviz – Its a screen which has multi view capability. You look at it from one angle you will see say your video game, another angle would be the 6 :00 news , and another angle would be cartoons. So depending on which side of the room your sitting you would see different content. It uses Directed Photon technology. By far the coolest gadget i have come across.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

I work at InMotion by day and im also an FM radio personality by Night.  I have a brand new baby boy who just turned 3 months old name Michael Jr. with my lovely future wife
Cherie. I love to change my voice, I’m a musician , and I work along side Shani Burton & Bernard Jackson with Released 1st on some amazing next level projects.

  1. Linux enthusiasts who have not used Linux professionally
  2. Web Design hobbyist seeking exposure to the inner workings of a web host
  3. Technical support candidates who have some personal experience with web sites and hosting, but have not worked in a hosting environment

  5. People who absolutely want to be in this industry and don’t have any experience

This program is developed to assist with identification of candidates for current and future openings here at IMH, but the structure is non-paid and self-driven. We’ve had some candidates successfully complete the program in a few weeks, while others have taken a little longer to absorb all of the material and be sure they are ready for the position. Participation of the program is not a guarantee of employment, you will still need to complete the standard interview process, but the program will set you up for success.

To get started:

Submit your resume to recruiters@inmotionhosting.com and mention Technical Pipeline Program in the email header.

After a short interview to determine if you are a good fit, you will be setup with the following:

School Supply Drive A Success!

InMotion Hosting team members demonstrated the company’s core value of “WE care” during the 5th Annual Back-to-School Supply Drive!  Each year, InMotion holds a voluntary company-wide school supply drive to collect school supplies for children in our local communities.  With the addition of our new office in Colorado, we were able to expand our reach to school children in the Denver, CO metro area.  Each office partnered with a different organization: ForKids in Virginia Beach, the I Have A Dream Foundation in Los Angeles, and Stuff for Students in Denver.

The IMH team came together and gave generously in support of our local communities.  Thanks to all for your generous donations!

 

Virginia Beach

ForKids is one of the largest providers for homeless families in Virginia, touching over 47,500 lives annually through its holistic housing programs and extended services for families.  The Virginia office donated a large variety of school supplies, including paper, pens/pencils, backpacks, highlighters, crayons, markers, scissors (to name a few school supplies), that filled two shopping carts to the brim!

 

Los Angeles

The I Have A Dream Foundation provides individualized social, emotional, and academic support to young people from low-income communities in the Los Angeles area.  Support is provided for a variety of ages, starting as young as kindergarten all the way through college.  Los Angeles pulled out all the stops and donated an entire cart-full of notebooks, glue sticks, scissors, rulers, folders, and more!

 

Denver

Stuff for Students is a partnership of Volunteers of America, 9News, and several other local businesses in the Denver area. The donations received from the Stuff for Students drive will go to the 15 school districts in Colorado that have the most need.  Our Denver team pulled together and filled an entire donation box – your donation will help make an impact on the lives of many children!
