Product & Website Services Support
Duration: February 2019 - May 2019
Location: Orem, UT
After a year and a half working with the Banyan account management team, providing technical support to both clients and staff alike, I began working more closely with web service clients, taking design requests, helping with updates to domains, DNS, 3rd party apps, plugins, and integrations, and learning more about the technology around cloud hosting. I still played a role in account on-boarding and enterprise level product support for the Banyan core applications, but my focus shifted to working more closely working with the engineering and website teams.
While working at Banyan, I came to understand a tribal culture, one that was pure, under pressure, but real, and they helped me find who I was, and where I could fit. For that they awarded me The Banyan Beast, an amazing personalized token, reflecting my presence on the company and the challenges that I overcame.
