Team Member Profile: Johnny A.

Position: Support: Team Lead in the Denver Office

Been with InMotion Hosting since: March 2017

 

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

I have truly enjoyed working in the web hosting industry, but I’ve had a blast working for InMotion Hosting specifically. My wardrobe is mostly superhero shirts, it perfectly fits our casual dress code. The company’s free lunch Tuesdays has become my favorite day of the week and the diverse people I work with make this job unpredictably exciting.

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

I’m currently a Support Team Lead at InMotion Hosting. What I like most about the position is pushing my agents to pursue internal advancement opportunities available in the company and see them succeed in those new positions. I love it when one of my agents comes out of an interview for an internal position smiling and telling me that they “Nailed it!”

What was the training process like?

I started at InMotion Hosting as a Linux expert and was not as familiar with the web hosting side. Our technical training program filled in the gaps of web hosting knowledge that I needed. With my prior Linux experience along with the web hosting knowledge I obtained from our training program, I gained a very deep understanding on how the internet truly works on all levels.

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

The one gadget I want to own is a MoonBoard. It’s a climbing training wall with LED lights associated with each of the standardized climbing holds. Via bluetooth, the MoonBoard’s LED lights are controlled by a mobile app where climbers around the world create their own climbing problems and share it with other climbers around the world. There are currently 32,000+ problems contributed into their database.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

Information Technology is actually my second career. Right after high school, I wanted to be a chef and did that for 9+ years of my early adult life. I worked with very talented chefs and some of the best restaurants in San Francisco.

Other than food and technology, my other big passion is rock climbing. Colorado has one of the most active climbing communities in the world and the mountains are just 30 minutes away from Denver, which makes it the perfect city for me to live in.

Back-To-School Supply Drive A Success!

InMotion Hosting team members eagerly showed their generosity and community spirit during the 6th Annual Back-to-School Supply Drive!  Each office partnered with a different organization that distributes school supplies to our local communities: ForKids in Virginia Beach, the I Have A Dream Foundation in Los Angeles, and Stuff for Students in Denver.

Once again, the IMH team rallied together 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, and more. The volume of supplies donated overwhelmed our donation table!

Los Angeles

Los Angeles pulled out all the stops and donated a myriad of notebooks, glue sticks, scissors, rulers, folders, and more to The I Have A Dream Foundation.  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.

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!

Been with InMotion Hosting since: October 2010

 

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

Senior Manager – Business Intelligence, HUB Brand Manager, & Product Line Manager of Reseller Products. I love having the opportunity to affect change by improving our products and services to our customers.  I also enjoy providing data to the company, which helps guide decision making, helping to improve tools and journeys for both our staff and customers.

 

What position did you start in with IMH? Tell us about your career growth since then.

When I came across InMotion Hosting, during a job search, I was looking to re-enter the technical industry, after having been out of it for a decade, in the Finance industry.  IMH had doubled in size the prior 3 years running, even in a down economy. I felt this was a fantastic opportunity to get in on the ground floor, prove myself, and work my way up the ladder.  It couldn’t have worked out better. I now find myself in a position to use both my technical and financial background, along with my love of data. Not only are there current growth paths for employees, but new positions and departments are opening up regularly…so opportunities only continue to grow!

Career progression:

  • Tier 1 Technical Support Representative

  • Team Lead – Technical Support
  • Manager – Customer Experience
  • Senior Manager – Software Development, Customer Experience, & Business Intelligence
  • Senior Manager – Business Intelligence, HUB Brand Manager, & Product Line Manager of Reseller Products

 

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

iRobot – first of all, it’s awesome having a robot vacuum my house for me…however, instead of gaining free time, I find myself watching the iRobot vacuum, attempting to determine it’s algorithm, the entire time!

 

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

My entry into Software Development was via my TI-85, in high school.  I programmed the calculator to do my Calculus & Economics homework for me…I also had it conjugate French verbs.  However, my favorite program was an animation of a Pole Vaulter…as Pole Vaulting was my “other” love, alongside of coding.

IMH Summer Event 2018 – Los Angeles

Each year, InMotion Hosting puts together a fun summer event for all employees and their families to show our gratitude and appreciation for all of the hard work, long hours and all-around greatness that they add to our company.

This year, the Los Angeles office held their Summer Event at Mulligan Family Fun Center. There were plenty of activities to enjoy that included Go Karts, Batting Cages, Laser Tag & more! Employees and their families had fun racing against one another on the go kart race track and battling it out in the laser tag arena! Some enjoyed some fun in the sun with a round of mini golf, others practiced their swings at the batting cages and someone even took a shot at rock climbing! The fun continued with our raffle- this year we had some really great prizes that included an Instax Mini, a Smart Roku TV, and the always coveted vacation vouchers! All in all, we had a great summer event. Everyone went home happy, sun-kissed and with a belly full of pizza!
