By | March 14th, 2019


Backblaze Business Backup is growing and to help bring customers on-board our sales department is growing! To help being new clients into the Backblaze fold Shaneika has joined the Backblaze team. Let’s learn a bit more about Shaneika shall we?

What is your Backblaze Title?
Account Executive.

Where are you originally from?
Brooklyn, NY.

What attracted you to Backblaze?
The fact that BackBlaze is rising to be the leader in cloud storage and the reviews were phenomenal when I did an extensive review on the company.

What do you expect to learn while being at Backblaze?
I would really like to get a handle on the interface, using it as a client as well as using it as an employee. This will enable me to be familiar with what I am selling and what to engage the client with.

Where else have you worked?
Oracle, Stamps.com, Envise.

Where did you go to school?
Oak Grove High School and University of Phoenix.

What’s your dream job?
Eventually becoming a director or VP of sales, however that is later down the line, as my main goal is to get acclimated with my position.

Favorite place you’ve traveled?
St Lucia.

Favorite hobby?
Sewing for now. My boyfriend got me a sewing machine last year after I mentioned how nice they were at Costco and got one. I am not on Michael Kors level, but I am getting there. NOT!

Of what achievement are you most proud?
Raising my 3 boys.

Star Trek or Star Wars?
Star Wars. It actually got real interesting when they brought Adam Driver on. LOVE HIM!

Coke or Pepsi?
Pepsi, of course.

Favorite food?
Curry Goat or Jerk Chicken.

Why do you like certain things?
Anything that brings laughter and smiling. We don’t have enough of that, so it is always has been an essential part in life for me. Life is definitely too short not to enjoy it to the fullest!

Anything else you’d like you’d like to tell us?
I volunteer during the holidays serving the homeless and sometimes during the year. I am always open to taking others along. Hint Hint :-)

Welcome aboard Shaneika! We’ll try to get a volunteer group to help you out one of these days!
