Team Member Profile: Chenell B.

Hometown: Virginia Beach, VA

Position: Support – Tier 1 E

Been with InMotion Hosting since: December 2016

 

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

This is the first job I’ve had where I actually learn something new everyday. Things are constantly changing here to keep up with technological advances, so we’re always on our toes. There is never a single moment of boredom working here.

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

I’m currently a Tier 1E Technical Support Representative, which is a Tier 1 with extra access to perform certain actions. I find it extremely rewarding when I’ve been working on a troubling issue for a customer and I come to a solution. Aside from the actual work side of things, the environment here is fun and relaxed which makes it impossible to not make any friends. Beware of the extra pounds you’ll put on from the stocked snack cabinet and the delicious free weekly lunches!

What was the training process like?

The training process was really thorough. I came to this job barely knowing what Web Hosting was, and the trainers made sure we had a good understanding of the job before we got to the floor. The discussions and group games were entertaining, engaging, and facilitated a really positive learning experience.

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

Ooh, this is a toughy. My girlfriend’s mom just got us Ipad Pros for Christmas, and I’m already in love with that. It’s practically like a keyboard-less Mac Book. I’m not too artsy myself, but it’s amazing if you’re into graphic design. I mainly use it for photo editing and games.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

I absolutely love traveling! Earlier this year my girlfriend and I went to London and Paris and that was amazing. I really enjoyed the culture and the overall atmosphere. We definitely plan on returning! I’m also a super foodie. I love finding new restaurants to try out, and this area has a pretty great selection. When I’m not eating or traveling, I’ll typically be playing video games or brushing up on my coding skills.

Career Paths at IMH – Jesse R.

InMotion Hosting wants to see all of its employees grow and succeed in their careers! We are using our Career Path spotlight to showcase some of the amazing leaders within our company by letting them tell their story about how they got their start with IMH. We hope you enjoy!

 

Hometown: I’m originally from Virginia Beach, VA. Grew up in Elizabeth City, NC from age 6-18 though. Moved back here as soon as I could.

Position: Manager – Advanced Product Support 

Been with InMotion Hosting since: December 2010

 

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

My current role is Advanced Product Support Manager, which oversees the Advanced Product Support Team as well as T2C, an escalation point team for T1’s. I love working with my teams, and they’re both technically advanced, which is a plus. I enjoy being able to improve and create processes that provide a positive impact on the customer’s experience.

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

I started here as a T1 here with a little Linux experience. I knew troubleshooting though. I was able to quickly advance to the T2C team, followed by the T2 Systems team all within the first year. Over the next couple of years I progressed through the T2S team into T2S-II, Team Lead, and finally Supervisor. I transitioned from T2S Supervisor to Advanced Product Support Manager during my 5th year at the company. Throughout my journey, I was able to build and reinforce my customer service, technical, and leadership skills.

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

This isn’t the most exciting answer, but the coolest gadget I own would definitely have to be my computer. It’s the tool that started all of this for me. It allows me to learn, research, connect with people, build things, and it works as a source of entertainment. I don’t know where I’d be without it

What would you like to tell us about yourself?

I’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with a lot of great people at InMotion, and I really appreciate that experience. I’ve made plenty of friends here over the years and I’ve adopted some great hobbies and positive experiences as a result. I rock climb because I was introduced to it by a coworker here. The house I own and the car I drive were both referred and suggested to me by people I work or have worked with. InMotion and the people I’ve met here have had such an influential experience on not just my work life, but my personal life as well.

Thanks For Giving!

This year, our WorkLife@IMH committee coordinated InMotion Hosting’s Annual Food Drive.  The WorkLife@IMH committee is comprised of about 15 team members from different departments and offices.  The committee’s goal is to help identify ways that we can improve and expand our reach.  One way the committee chose to do that was through giving back to our local communities.

Our Los Angeles office donated several boxes to the Westside Food Bank, which distributes food to over 70 local social service agencies.  In Denver, we partnered with the Food Bank of the Rockies, which serves 30 different counties in Colorado as well as the entire state of Wyoming.  Virginia Beach once again donated two trunk fulls of food to the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia, which distributed around 15 million meals last year.

Thanks to all of our team members across our Los Angeles, Denver, and Virginia Beach offices for your donations and for helping us give back!
