Altitude Rockstar Spotlight

As part of our company culture it’s our goal for employees to feel welcomed, appreciated, recognized and are rewarded for their efforts. One of the ways we recognize employees for their hard work is with an Altitude Rockstar Spotlight program. Altitude Digital colleagues, including our management team, acknowledge employees that have exemplified their commitment in service, leadership and overall quality of work performed. In addition to receiving our unique, fun and creative Altitude Digital trophy, employees receive a certificate of accomplishment, gift card and other incentives for their nomination.

What’s your favorite part about being an Altitude Digital Rockstar?
It’s genuinely amazing to feel recognition and appreciation from your peers; it’s something that makes your work have purpose and I’m very thankful for the acknowledgment, not just with this award, but every day I come to work.

Describe your position with the company.
My position is primarily focused on supporting, maintaining and enhancing all information technology systems inside the company. A typical day can span from keeping up to date on potential security threats, to researching a new vendor, to solving an internal pain point we may be experiencing.

If someone were considering working at Altitude Digital, what would you tell him or her?
Altitude Digital is a very amazing place to work; only a few times in my career have I been blessed with such great set of coworkers who share such an awesome culture. I would tell a potential employee that if you find work-life balance and culture to be paramount, it’s rare you will find such a great mix of these two in a potential employer as you find at Altitude Digital.

Tell us something unique about yourself.
After moving out to Seattle, I was fortunate enough to work for Bill and Melinda Gates at their foundation. It was an amazing experience and I’m happy I was able contribute to their critical initiatives of global health, global development and U.S. programs. It was truly a life-changing experience.
