The Backblaze production team is growing and that means the data center is increasingly gaining some new faces. One of the newest to join the team is Josh! Lets learn a bit more about Josh shall we?
What is your Backblaze Title?
I’m a Data Center Technician in the Sacramento area.
Where are you originally from?
I lived all over the California central valley growing up.
What attracted you to Backblaze?
Backblaze is the best of a few worlds — cool startup meets professional DIYers meets transparent tech company (a rare thing).
What do you expect to learn while being at Backblaze?
I expect to learn about Data Center operations, and continue to develop the Linux skills that landed me here.
Building and playing with new and useful toys.
Star Trek or Star Wars?
Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra.
Coke or Pepsi?
Tacos. No, burgers. No, it’s sushi. No, gyros. I can’t choose.
Why do you like certain things?
I like things that I can take apart and rebuild and turn every knob and adjust every piece. It means there’s a lot to learn, and I definitely like that.
Darmok and Jalad on the ocean! Welcome aboard Josh :D
