As Backblaze continues to grow, one thing that runs linearly with our growth is the number of folks we need in support. We believe strongly that people writing in to get a helping hand should be quickly and kindly take care of. To help us with that, we’d like to welcome Zach, our latest Support Tech to the Backblaze team! Lets take a minute to learn a bit more about Zach shall we?
What is your Backblaze Title?
Jr. Support Technician
Where are you originally from?
I was born in Pasadena, CA, but I’ve spent most of my life in the Bay Area.
What attracted you to Backblaze?
I have a few friends that have been with the company for some time who would do nothing but gush about the respect that Backblaze has for its employees. More than anything I was drawn to the loyalty and faith the company has for its staff.
Where else have you worked?
Previously I have worked support roles for other tech companies as well as general IT and computer hardware repair.
What’s your dream job?
Somewhere that I feel I can grow within the company and find success in a role that makes me feel satisfied. Or a touring musician. That would be cool, too.
Favorite place you’ve traveled?
Canada! Everyone was so nice!
In my spare time I like to write sad songs.
Of what achievement are you most proud?
One of my favorite singers told me that I have a really nice voice. So I suppose my proudest achievement is being born with a nice voice.
Star Trek or Star Wars?
I cried during Episode VII.
Coke or Pepsi?
Is bread an acceptable answer?
Anything else you’d like you’d like to tell us?
I’m also a big Disney fan like so many other people who work here. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
We certainly do have a lot of Disney fans on staff — there must be something in the air. Welcome aboard Zach!
