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. There are perks for being in the Spotlight. In addition to receiving our unique, fun and creative Altitude Digital trophy, employees receive a certificate of accomplishment, gift card and other incentives.

What’s your favorite part about being an Altitude Digital Rockstar?
My favorite part of being an Altitude Digital Rockstar is the awesome people I work with. We’re working on solving really cool problems, and I know everyone has my back. No matter how hard the problem is, or how fast a deadline is approaching, I know we will always be able to solve it. The snacks are really cool too.

Describe your position with the company:
I write code to make the platform work. I worked on ARENA 2.0, specifically a lot of the backend code for getting stats on the publisher dashboard.

If someone were considering working at Altitude Digital what would you tell him or her?
When I first started, one thing that stood out was how friendly and inclusive everyone is. People were quick to introduce themselves, and everyone is super chill. There’s a lot of energy, and I definitely get the feeling that we’re all working towards a common goal.

Tell us something unique about yourself.
I grew up with six siblings.

Favorite band?
My favorite band is Spoon. My favorite song is Reminiscing by Little River Band, because it’s literally one of the worst songs ever written.
