Pingdom would like to take this opportunity to introduce the latest addition to our geeky team. Anders Ekman has joined us as support technician.
Anders comes from Sala, a town not far from the Pingdom HQ in Västerås, Sweden. His older brother got him inspired and curious about computers at an early age, and he wanted to figure out what goes on inside the box, how it all works.
In high school Anders specialized in IT, which was the perfect choice for him, he says. But after school he wanted to see the world, and looked for IT-related jobs all over the place.
He ended up in Ireland, doing support for a large international tech company. After six months in Ireland, Anders felt that he had experienced most of what the job and the place had to offer and he headed back to Sweden, and now Pingdom.
At Pingdom, Anders will be working as a support technician, very much drawing upon his experience from Ireland. His days will be filled with answering emails, taking phone calls, and overall sorting out any issues, which Pingdom customers may experience.
In between the support calls and emails, Anders will go hunting for some good Mexican food. That’s one of the few things he says he’ll miss from Ireland.
We still have open positions
So today we’re welcoming Anders to Pingdom, where he’ll dig right in to his support duties. But even though Anders just joined Pingdom we’re still looking for more super geeky and fun coworkers to join our growing team.
You could be a key component in accomplishing our mission of making uptime and performance monitoring even easier and more available to the entire world. Besides, you will have a choice of what crazy maxed out and packed computer you want to run – Linux, Mac, or Windows.
