I’m Jesse, the newest addition to the Ting content team! I couldn’t be more excited to work with the bright folks at Ting and be a part of the growth of such an amazing company. As content coordinator, my role is all about communication. I’m psyched to have this opportunity and I hope you’re looking forward to what’s in store!
Upon a nervous arrival on my first day, I was warmly welcomed by the marketing team, who decked me out in swag, introduced me to tons of friendly co-workers, and had me feeling right at home in no time! I was goaded into doing a series of backflips to prove my worthiness. Years of training had brought me to this point, and while it wasn’t a perfect ten, I’m glad I made the cut!
Life at Tucows
Free daily fruit, quality coffee, comfortable couches throughout the office, and flexible hours are several of the great benefits we receive here at Ting. My favorite, however, has to be the sweet barbecues on the rooftop balcony which I expect to take full advantage of. Chicken, ribs, burgers, corn on the cob, grilled veggies… SO MANY OPTIONS!
Ting is arranged in an open-concept office. I enjoy this because it’s motivating to see busy co-workers around me, and it’s easy to ask questions and start conversations. Great for a newbie like myself! While the hospitality and snazzy environment are reason enough for me to be confident I’m going to love working here, it’s the overall passion of the larger team and Ting’s business model which really sealed the deal for me. The flexibility, transparency, and actual fair pricing are impossible to ignore. It’s cool to see that my co-workers and Ting customers alike share a real enthusiasm for fairness and changing the mobile industry.
From what I can see in my (admittedly limited) experience so far, Ting customers are an amazing bunch and they (you!) deserve top-quality content. I’ll work my hardest to provide just that! Not just blog posts but interesting social media conversations, app reviews, industry news and more.
And if you’re planning to come to one of the Ting meet-ups in Minneapolis, Texas, New York or Illinois, perhaps I’ll see you there?
