We’re a growing team, dedicated to making S4M the leading drive-to-store platform worldwide. Every day, we create, code, design and improve our platform to give our customers the best drive-to-store experience possible. At S4M, we love what we do and the people we do it with. Get to know us!

What does it mean to be IT Technician?
As one of the company’s IT technicians, my responsibility is to make sure everyone else can do their job without any technical issues! Every position and every employee/intern is so dependent on their computer working correctly to do their job, that any issues can cause delays and headaches. My job also involves improving the S4M technical infrastructure and automating long and repetitive tasks.

How would you describe yourself?
I’d say as someone who is humble, hungry and ready to learn from many of my failures! I measure success by actually walking the walk and not talking the talk – even if what I set out to do doesn’t really work out at the end – the important thing for me is that I actually tried.

If you could switch positions with a colleague, who would it be and why?
I would honestly love to switch positions with anyone here. I find everyone’s job so fascinating and vastly different that it’s hard to choose someone. I would love to learn a little bit of everyone’s job and become the jack of all trades (but master of none).

What’s your most useful skill?
Knowing that it’s impossible to know everything. The world is always improving and evolving so knowing everything all the time is just impossible (especially in the tech world). My most useful skill is saying “I don’t know the answer to that question, but I will do everything in my power to figure it out”.

What’s the craziest object you have on your desk?
I like to believe I’m a minimalist at heart and not very materialistic, so I don’t keep a lot of things on my desk. A few cool things I have are my SONOS PLAY:5, an extra wide monitor, and a little desk fan that powers via USB. I love listening to music while on the job – and nothing beats the SONOS PLAY:5.

What do you like most about your job?
I genuinely love how nice and likable everyone is. I like how everyone really believes in our product and services and that energy is infectious. On the IT side, I like my teammates – although I have never met them in person, we have built a good foundation of communication and we trust each other to fix whatever issue comes at hand.

Who’s your favorite superhero?
Is Mando a superhero? If so, then him! What’s not to love about him? A bad*ss character that learns how to care for someone that is not him.

What can we find in your fridge?
I recently bought a house with a friend and we both like the art of fermentation. In our fridge, you can find a lot of homemade Kombucha, Kimchi, different types of butters and spreads, etc. Also, lots of fruits and veggies and different types of proteins. If you know about fermenting Kombucha, we have named our SCOBY ‘Scoby Bryant’.
