We hope you enjoy!

Hometown: Virginia Beach, VA

Position: Manager, Customer Success

Been with InMotion Hosting since: October 2016

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

Manager, Customer Success. I love how much of an opportunity I have to make things better for the whole team. Taking good ideas and making them a reality is always a great feeling!

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

I started as a Tier 1 Technical Support Representative. From there I moved up to Tier 1 Expert, which was basically the same role but with more access and responsibility. Then, I moved up to Team Lead, which was a sort of junior Supervisor role. I moved up to Supervisor from there, and was eventually the Supervisor for everyone in Support but 3rd shift. Most recently I’ve moved up to the Manager role, and have been really enjoying it! These past two years have been full of change and excitement as I’ve moved to new positions, and I can’t wait to see what year 3 holds for me!

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

I love my 3D printer. Definitely the coolest piece of tech in my apartment. I use it for printing minis for D&D, cosplay props, useful tools, fun stuff to decorate my desk with, all kinds of things.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

For anyone considering applying, but not sure if you have the skills you need yet, study up and go for it! I started without any official experience in hosting, learning all about hosting through our Technical Pipeline Program and just knew a decent amount of Linux from having a Fedora desktop. Also, I’m probably one of the few managers you’ll find with a mohawk who wears Kamen Rider shirts.

Team Member Profile: Nick G.

Hometown:

I was born in Milwaukee, WI way back when. I triumphantly moved to Los Angeles in 2009 after graduating college.

Position: 

Data Center Technician IIE

Been with InMotion Hosting since:

 April 2014



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

I have really enjoyed working with such a large group of fun, friendly people here at InMotion Hosting. Interacting with people from nearly every department to reach shared goals means that I am never bored and always learning something. The professional and technical growth I have achieved here so far cannot be understated and I look forward for things to come.

What is your current role? What do you like about it?

I am currently a Data Center Tech 2E. The thing I enjoy most about it is the variety of tasks and projects that I get to work on in any given day. No two days are ever the same and that keeps things from ever getting boring or mundane. The free lunches on Fridays don’t hurt either.

What is the coolest gadget you own?

Can a car be a gadget? If so, the coolest gadget that I own is probably the car I purchased recently, a Chevy Volt. Aside from getting ridiculous mileage (right now I am averaging 117.8 mpg) it has all of the bells and whistles that were available. I am quite proud of that purchase.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

I am a sports fanatic. I love playing, watching, talking about all things basketball, football, and (if I am bored) baseball related. I still root for my teams back from Wisconsin (Go Pack Go!) but will occassionally cheer on a Los Angeles based team.

In college I was able to just barely dunk a basketball which I felt proud about being only 5’9’’. Nowadays however I would be lucky if I could touch the net on my best jump.
