As Backblaze continues to grow a couple of our departments need to grow right along with it. One of the quickest-growing departments we have at Backblaze is Customer Support. We do all of our support in-house and the team grows to accommodate our growing customer base! We have a new person joining us in support, Lin! Lets take a moment to learn a bit more about her shall we?
What is your Backblaze Title?
Jr. Support Technician.
Where are you originally from?
Ventura, CA. It’s okay if you haven’t heard of it, it is very, very, small.
What attracted you to Backblaze?
The company culture, the delightful ads on Critical Role, and how immediately genuinely friendly everyone I met was.
Where else have you worked?
I previously did content management at Wish, and an awful lot of temp gigs. I did a few years at a coffee shop in the beginning of college, but my first job ever was a JoAnn’s Fabrics.
Where did you go to school?
San Francisco State University
What’s your dream job?
Favorite place you’ve traveled?
Tokyo, but Disneyworld is a real close second.
I spend an awful lot of time playing video games, and possibly even more making silly costumes.
Star Trek or Star Wars?
Truthfully I love both. But I was raised on original series and next generation Trek.
Coke or Pepsi?
Coke … definitely coke.
Cupcakes. Especially funfetti cupcakes.
Anything else you’d like you’d like to tell us?
I discovered Sailor Moon as a child and it possibly influenced my life way too much. Like many people here I am a huge Disney fan; Anyone who spends longer than a few hours with me will probably tell you I can go on for hours about my cat (but in my defense he’s adorable and fluffy and I have the pictures to prove it).
We keep hiring folks that love Disney! It’s kind of amazing. It’s also nice to have folks in the office that can chat about the latest Critical Role episode! Welcome aboard Lin, we’ll try to get some funfetti stocked for the cupcakes that come in!
