Team Member Profile: Matt S.

Matt S.Hometown: Virginia Beach, VA

Position: Support – Tier 1 Team Lead

Been with InMotion Hosting since: April 2015

 

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

I really enjoy the challenge of keeping up with the latest technology! Getting to be hands-on with that technology on a daily basis is probably one of the coolest things.

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

Team Lead. I find that in my current position I can give training in guidance to others in order for our team to work together as a whole, successful unit. Coming from a Tier 1 position, I feel I’m in the perfect position to offer my guidance based on my experience to help others become successful. Some things that I like about InMotion Hosting are:

  • Conscious about the environment
  • Plenty of opportunity for bonuses in any of the support positions
  • Work events!!! Are you kidding me. The summer event was probably the best work event I’ve attended professionally
  • Continuing education program that reimburses for taking certifications and/or school classes
  • The friendly, laid back environment

What was the training process like?

Initial: Very hands-on. Something that anyone can come in and accomplish. I came in without much prior web hosting experience. If I had any questions about how the training was going, or needed more information during my self-paced training, my trainers were right there for me to ask. On-the-floor: I like to consider it “live” training. It will usually happen that throughout my experience as a T1 that if I had an issue, someone from the higher tier would walk me through it. Most times that means they would visit my desk and walk me through the process.

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

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

Always seeking a challenge. I really enjoy being part of the team that provides the best hosting, customer service, and reliability in the industry.

High School Students visit IMH

Recently IMH had visitors from Landstown High School and The Prudent Center who came on site to meet some of our employees and learn more about what we do!

Danny S. from our Marketing department gave a presentation about the importance of understanding what the client needs are and how we can meet those needs. He also spoke about managing their website once it is completed, as well as marketing their business online moving forward. One of our Web Designers, Barbara D. explained the process her team goes through when one of our customers wants us to build a website for them. She explains everything from talking to the customer about what they want in a website to coding the layout of their site.

Take a look at the pictures below to see how much fun they had!

Show Us Your Pi

March 14th was Pi Day, and here at IMH we celebrated by having a “Show Us Your Pi” contest!

Not That Pie, this Pi

Contestants had to set up their Pi science fair style and show the functionality of their Pi for judging.

Second place went to Nick W. who showed us how he can use his Pi as a security camera. Here is his description on how his Pi works:

“Whenever you are away from the house, all you have to do is login to see what’s going on. In a later project, I am going to refine the motion sensor script so that it will record a 10 second clip and email me a link to the video. In addition to being a security camera, it also constantly syncs any wireless Fitbit tracker that is in range with the Fitbit server. It can also run a speed test from command line. I am always able to connect remotely because of another script that connects with No-ip.com and updates my IP multiple times a day so I can use a hostname instead of an IP. I usually have the pi plugged into a IP controlled power outlet so I can power cycle the pi if it ever becomes unresponsive. However, for the demonstration, I will have that IP controlled outlet plugged into a lamp to prove what you are seeing is in fact video feed.”

Pi contest Nick W.

Kyle M. took home 1st place.  Kyle’s Pi was ” a refrigerated water cooled overclocked raspberry PI that was running projects for BOINC http://boinc.berkeley.edu/ running projects like http://boinc.fzk.de/poem/ https://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/ and http://www.enigmaathome.net/.”

Earth Day 2016

Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day

Earth Day started 46 years ago as a movement to motivate people to take action on environmental issues. According to earthday.org, over 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year and InMotion Hosting enjoys being involved in the movement.

This year we had our Customer Experience, Development, and Office of Business Intelligence teams go out and pick up trash from along our street in an effort to reduce pollution.
