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 a new member of the team, optimization engineer Scott Teschendorf. As our newest developer on the team, Scott is already an asset to the team. His work is great, and he’s a fun guy to work with. Congratulations Scott!
Where are you from and how did you end up in Raleigh at Brooks Bell?
I am from Madison, Wisconsin. We were looking for a little change and to escape the cold. We visited Raleigh and loved it. I found Brooks Bell by looking at the top 50 companies list by Triangle Business Journal and loved the way it sounded as an organization. The rest is history.
Which of Brooks Bell’s core values resonates with you most and why?
I have to say Pursue Knowledge. I’ve always been curious and believe it is incredibly important to pay attention and always be learning new things when the chance arises.
What are you reading?
For Fun: Helter Skelter. For Learning: Linked Data – Structured data on the Web.
Favorite work/life quote or slogan?
One of my favorite quotes is one attributed to Edward Murrow, “The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue.”
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.
