Employee Spotlight: Robert Scullin

The start of a brand new year has our Zoomph team brimming with excitement. One source of that excitement is our new Employee Spotlight series, which we’ll be releasing a few times each month to shed light on the brains and personalities behind our platform. Needless to say, it’s our exceptional staff who keep us growing and on the cutting edge of social media– and so, beginning with Mr. Robert Scullin, we’d like to recognize our staff individually for their hard work and remarkable commitment to our company’s values and visions.

Since the start of our company, Robert Scullin has been a trusty member of our squad, operating on the back-end of our platform and managing the tangles of code that most of us would cower away from touching. To this day, Robert is still a dependable and essential part of our team, working as our Lead DevOps Engineer, who we can all agree has a fantastic head of hair and a brilliant sense of humor.
