Singlewire Spotlight: Jordan


Each month, we feature one of our stellar team members on our blog. Learn more about them and what they do at Singlewire.

How long have you been at Singlewire and what’s your position?

I’ve been at Singlewire since April of 2019 and serve as a DevOps engineer on our DevOps team.

Please describe what you do at Singlewire.

As a DevOps engineer, I focus on monitoring our production environment, helping to automate developer workflows, as well as releasing new versions of InformaCast.

What do you like best about working at Singlewire?

The culture at Singlewire is second to none, with flexibility and an office facility that I really enjoy. There are also a non-zero number of dogs that I can expect to drop by my desk on a normal working day for a treat, which really elevates my workday from ‘good’ to ‘great’.

What have you gained from working at Singlewire?

From making close friends to continually experimenting with new services, AWS or otherwise, I’ve gained quite a bit in terms of work experience and personal growth. Speaking specifically, I’ve learned a lot more about Puppet and Docker over the last year, which are both vital services to a modern, scalable infrastructure.

Where do you see Singlewire in the next five years?

In five years, I expect Singlewire will be working similarly, though in greater capacity: we’ll have even more customers spanned across the globe, communicating with their students, employees and constituents through all manner of channels. I expect our software will run on even more platforms, using a greater variety of services. As a DevOps engineer, I look forward to scaling up our infrastructure to meet this growing demand so that no notification ever goes undelivered.

What are your favorite things to do outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my dog, a heeler mix, Roz (loves fetch), and my fiancé (we love to bike). I greatly enjoy spending time in the kitchen, whether I’m focusing on meal prep, actually cooking, or tossing together cocktails.

If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to witness?

The release of the first working silicon conductor, at Bell Labs, would have been a really cool moment in time to go back and appreciate, especially with the understanding of the changes it would bring to the world.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

Steak. There is no day, whether good or bad, that cannot be improved with the addition of a great steak.

What was the last book you read?

I just finished Understanding Mezcal by James Schroeder. It’s an excellent read discussing the tradition, science, and culture of the agave-based spirit, Mezcal.

What is the best concert you’ve ever attended?

This is a tough toss-up between two concerts somewhat tied in my mind: John Mayer’s legendary ‘Where the Light Is’ tour and Deadmau5’s recent performances debuting Cube v.3.
