Mod of the Month – August 2019
For this month’s installment of our ongoing series, we travel to Derry, Northern Ireland, home of ModSquad’s European Operations Center. As the summer months there come to an end and children return to school, we focus our attention on a familiar face, one who’s fine efforts have earned him the title of Mod of the Month. Please join us in congratulating August’s honoree, Lee G!
Lee, who has been working with ModSquad for four years this month, first heard about ModSquad through CultureTECH, a Derry-based tech expo. He was intrigued by the flexibility of remote working and has come to appreciate it. He’s similarly enthused about the flexibility of his schedule, which allows him more free time to hang with his energetic 10-year-old German Shepherd, go rock climbing, and binge-watch TV shows. (His go-to television series? The Shield. And for the record, his fave flick is Predator.)
At ModSquad, Lee was more than pleased to join his most recent project. For the past 16 months, he’s been working for a streaming-video client. In his role, Lee assists users on a variety of topics, from API/developer questions to general usability knowledge to account-specific inquiries. It’s a role for which he is particularly well-suited:
“Coming from a software/QA background, I excel most in technical email inquiries that require digging deep into issues, pinpointing the cause of any problem, and helping come up with a solution. I enjoy the variety of opportunities that are available at ModSquad, there’s always something new to learn or try!”
When asked what sets ModSquad apart from other companies, Lee highlighted the opportunity he’s had to work alongside “an amazing group of hardworking and talented people worldwide.” But many of ModSquad’s Project Managers have similar faith in Lee, offering positive feedback about our Mod of the Month’s abilities and resourcefulness:
“His knowledge of the project is next to none. He moves his shifts to accommodate others and is one of our top performers.”
— James Campbell, Project Manager
“Lee was exceptional in every aspect of his role on the project we shared. He genuinely cares for his projects. He is the sort of person who never loses motivation and never gives up. It’s been almost two years since I’ve worked on a project with Lee, but I’m still in awe of his spirit and determination.”
— Joseph Moore, Assistant Project Manager
“I’ve worked with Lee for a few years, and he is completely stellar. He’s always on point with everything from attendance to quality assurance to jumping in with both feet and helping others. His “can-help” attitude and calm demeanor makes me wish I could clone him.”
— Sarah Hilligiest, Project Manager
