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 Bryan Prehodka, our Technical Project Manager!
In addition to testing for our clients, we also have a lot of projects that Bryan helps us keep on track. With guidance from the project management team, we’re able to roll out those projects on time and successfully. Congratulations Bryan!
What is a problem or challenge you faced and overcame in the past weeks?
(Lately we have been working on cross functional learning among our team. So, the developers have been learning about the testing and analytics tools, while analysts have been learning about programming languages.)
The jQuery test was quite a challenge. A foreign language really. As a project manager, it’s important to have an understanding of the work you’re helping to manage and I thought it was a worthwhile experience.

What do you like to do outside of work? Any hobbies?
Tennis and soccer. When time is not a concern, mountain biking and skiing. Most of all I enjoy being with my children (ages 4 and 1).
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.
