Chelsea Thompson; I am originally from San Diego.
Working for DDMS (De Maximis Data Management Solutions).
I have been working here for only a month, but so far so good! I got started here at ddms through linkedin.com actually, when I was searching for an environmental/technological position after I graduated from San Diego State University.
The best part about my job is that I get to work with so many different platform types that all manage data efficiently, which in the process of doing so, takes the weight off our clients; since we provide numerous services for environmental projects.
I have never left the country in my entire life (not even to Mexico) but I finally have a passport now. I love sour beers or a nice vodka cocktail. I could eat pizza every single day without getting sick of it. I am a true night owl that could stay up till 3am and then sleep in till 12pm every day. As a San Diego native I think a day that is under 75 degrees is “chilly”. I really like going to concerts and music festivals but rap music is my favorite.
Currently my favorite local places to eat around BLOC are Pizza Port and Station Sushi, but I go back and forth depending on what mood I am in.
I really like working at BLOC because of the variety of people and businesses; it is refreshing to work in a relaxed environment, so you are not sitting at a desk all day losing your mind. You are free to stroll around, enjoy BLOC’s amenities, the beautiful view of the beach, and all things within walking distance or a short drive. I also like how BLOC throws together events or meet ups for its members treating us like family and encouraging us to branch out and make connections (this aspect is something I enjoy since I work in a remote office and the interaction with others is somewhat limited).
