Each week at Brooks Bell, we have a short meeting Friday morning with the entire team. During the meeting we get updates on tests and the company, and award a “Star of the Week.”
This week, our Star is Director, Optimization Engineer, Mike Adams. Mike is always positive and a great leader. He’s always there with an answer to our technical questions. Congrats Mike!

I was born, raised and still live in Knightdale, NC. I also lived in Wilmington, NC for a couple of years. While living the beach life in Wilmington I started my career as a Web Developer and eventually found this awesome job at Brooks Bell. So needless to say I moved back and love working here!
What led you to have a passion for web development??
I was born with a passion for Web Development; ever since I can remember I have been coding websites. I’ve pursued this passion my entire life and still absolutely love doing it!

Pizza, Bacon and Mac-n-Cheese!
Favorite work/life quote or slogan??
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Emerson
What do you do outside of work? Any hobbies??
I enjoy kayaking and bike riding outside of work.
The Brooks Bell Star of the Week is a team member who has gone above and beyond typical expectations during the week. The award is designed to empower our team and ensure everyone’s hard work is appreciated and recognized.
The winner receives a large trophy they get to keep for the entire week, fully equipped with extra Nerf darts (extra protection for those impromptu Nerf wars). They also get the honor of selecting the following week’s winner.
Sound like fun? Check to see if we’re hiring.
