Helping Hands: Steve Joins the Datacenter

By | July 27th, 2015


We’ve never had an intern in the datacenter before, and that changed last week when Larry’s son Steve joined the datacenter ranks! We needed an extra set of hands to move and tear down a lot of our old chassis, and Steve was a willing victim volunteer! Lets learn a bit more about our the latest datacenter acquisition shall we?

What is your Backblaze Title?
Operations Intern.

My father’s stories of work.

You see, that would be like trying to decide between Coke or Pepsi.

Oh, come on!!

Favorite food?

Why do you like certain things?
I like certain things that I’m good at for example: math and music.

Anything else you’d like you’d like to tell us?
My eventual goal in mathematics is to earn a Ph.D. I would like to use this to work as a professor or for a government agency like NASA.

Since Steve can’t decide between Star Wars and Star Trek or Coke and Pepsi, lets decide for him! We think he looks like a Star Trek and Pepsi kind of guy. Either way, we’re happy to have a new Operations Intern in the mix and we know he’ll do a bang-up job in the datacenter! Thanks for joining us Steve!
