What do you do at DuBose Web?
Director of Operations
When did you start working here?
What does a work day in your life look like?
I have a few hats I wear here.
Do you have any systems or habits in place that help you with productivity?
For Email: I’m a fan of inbox zero-ish. I always try to keep a clean inbox by responding immediately, or properly categorizing emails into actions steps. I also love using Google Tasks to help remind me of quick things I need to take care, or items that just need to stay on my radar.
For other stuff: I use Smartsheet a lot to keep track of project statuses, ongoing support tickets, notes for upcoming meetings, my “parking lot” (items that are on my radar to work on in the future). I then have a report which acts as my dashboard to see all this in one place.
Other habits: I use getpocket.com a lot to store articles and web pages for me to read later. I also Slack myself a lot when out and about to remind me of things to do when I get back to the office.
What does your desk look like? Cluttered? Tidy? Organized chaos?
NASA’s mission control has nothing on me.
What have you learned while working at DuBose Web?
To speak up. When acting with integrity and respectfully, never be afraid to speak up and share your ideas or say the tough things that no one else wants to say.
What is the coolest thing you have worked on lately?
The Right to Fail. This is a document within our company manual that explains how DuBose Web doesn’t condemn failure as long as team members are acting responsibly and with integrity.
When you’re not working, how do you like to spend your time?
With my bride and two boys! We love to play games together inside and outside. The boys and I also enjoy getting out in nature by hiking, backpacking and camping.
Do you have a book, podcast or other resource that has inspired you lately?
An Infinite Journey
What’s one thing about you that surprises people?
Apparently, that I’m a nice guy
If you had to choose only 3 adjectives to describe yourself, which would you choose?
Resourceful, Fun, Inquisitive
What is your favorite part about being part of the DuBose Web team?
Creating timelines! Just kidding. It’s being a part of a team that’s centered on and acts out our core values. While we all may have different ideas or different paths we want to take, I know that everyone on the team has the same goals for our team and our partners.
