As you have probably heard, we’re hiring at iThemes/PluginBuddy.
One of our latest outstanding additions is Jeremy Trask, who has joined the team part-time at PluginBuddy support. Initially Jeremy will focus on providing BackupBuddy support. If you’ve been in the support forum at all, you’ve probably already read some of the many helpful answers he provided as a customer. We’re very excited to make his contributions “official.”
Dustin Bolton, Team Leader at PluginBuddy, says “Jeremy was previously a customer that stood out on the support forum pitching in to help others. Not only was he kindly helping people out but he also knew what he was talking about and was able to communicate it well. I’m excited that we found this talented new member of the team.”
Jeremy’s previous experience is in mainstream Telecommunications R&D, from research to designing and developing large scale network monitoring systems for telecoms operators worldwide. He considers himself fairly new to the specifics of web development, but because it uses the same principles of design, development, test and apply, he can draw on his previous experience.
Jeremy says, “It’s great to be working with a bunch of people who obviously believe in what they are doing and have considerable expertise in the area. I certainly hope to be able to pick up a lot of knowledge as I go along and also hope I can make some contributions as well. I also hope to be able to continue helping iThemes customers get the best out of the products they have invested in. It’s refreshing being involved with a smaller team after having spent so many years as a cog in the machine.”
Jeremy will be part of our remote team as he is based in Edinburgh in the UK. He is married to Christine and they have one (currently doing poorly) cat named Biscuit. When Jeremy is not tapping away at the keys he’s out on his bicycle tapping away at the pedals training for this years racing season.
You can take a peek at Jeremy’s own site at www.485ambiguous.com. (He asks that you be gentle as he hasn’t had much time to devote to it.)
Help us welcome Jeremy to the team!
