We’re hiring like crazy over here (know any Sys Admins?) and the latest person to join the Backblaze team is Eric! He’s joining our money department as a Junior Staff Accountant, and our controller Cecilia couldn’t be happier! Let’s take some time and learn a bit about Eric, shall we?

Eric might be the only person that the office that prefers Pepsi, but we’re going to start stocking it in the fridge now just for him! Once we start building out our office a little bit we might even get a functioning kitchen for Eric to start developing that chef’s palate, then he can start catering lunches! Brilliant!
