Josh | Senior Developer Penguin
How long have you been working for Iceberg?
I started working at Iceberg in February, 2021.
Have your duties changed since you first started working here?
Even though I haven’t been at Iceberg all that long, I’ve worked on some really exciting projects. I really enjoy the mix of working on new projects and providing support to existing customers.
What do you do for Iceberg’s customers?
I help our customers create or enhance their online presence in a way that reflects their business values and goals. Using the latest web technologies, I make sure that our solutions work well and follow the highest standards for functionality, accessibility, and design.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
I really enjoy working with customers and coming up with innovative solutions. I also like constantly learning the latest in digital technology and marketing.
What is your #1 goal when working with a customer?
My #1 goal is to understand the customer, what their business objectives are, and how we can bring all of their vision to their website.
In what other industries have you worked?
I’ve worked in IT, product development, ecommerce, digital marketing and web development.
Tell us a bit about your family (including pets):
My wife and I have 2 kids, a dog and a couple fish.
Do you have any hobbies/special interests?
I enjoy playing guitar, discovering new music, reading great books, and mountain biking with the family.
What is something about you that might surprise your customers and co-workers?
My wife and I have taken on many DIY home & garden projects over the years. Our kids are now reaching the age where it’s fun to teach them some of the skills we’ve learned.
Describe your perfect day:
Wake up early enough to watch the sunrise with a good cup of coffee. Then a day filled with some work, reading, listening to music and a bike or motorcycle ride. And a perfect day would always include trying out a new recipe and having time to cook a great meal.
Science or History? Which is your favorite and why?
I really like both, but as a sociology major, I’ve probably studied a lot more history and do find it fascinating how much history repeats itself.
If you were guaranteed the correct answer to one question, what would you ask?
What is the secret to eternal happiness?
What is your best piece of advice? It can be about anything.
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
