Team Building Event at Dave & Busters

Last week, team members from our Human Resources, Training, and Quality Assurance departments took to Dave & Busters in Virginia Beach for some team building fun. During dinner they played games such as “two truths and a lie”, and after dinner they had a blast playing arcade games!

It was a great opportunity for the departments to connect outside the office environment and get to know their coworkers. Would you like to join a company that values team building? Submit your resume to recruiters@inmotionhosting.com for review.

How did you get started with InMotion Hosting?

I started at InMotion through an internship in Development about 3 years ago.

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

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with in the industry specifically with IMH. The culture and atmosphere that is fundamentally a part of IMH is unmatched. The team mentality across the entire company is reinforced from coast to coast and absolutely from the top down. The true concern and care for the employees expressed from management is amazing.

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

I am currently the Development Team Lead. It is a relatively new position for me, but based on the already team driven mentality in Development and the company as a whole I don’t expect much of a difference on a day to day. I look forward to the added responsibility and expectations it might bring, I welcome the challenge.

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

I have some background in 3D Simulation and Design and have always wanted to dabble with Oculus Rift and I also am a fan of recent developments in Augmented Reality projects.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

I have worked in many different environments, from the Marine Corps to managing a Laser Tag location. I have worked with many different types of people as well. I can honestly say I have never worked somewhere or for the quality of people that I am surrounded by on a day to day basis as I am at InMotion. It is the best of the best and I enjoy each day.
