Yobah Life: Meet The Team

Welcome to another edition of Yobah Life, this time around we’re taking you behind the scenes to meet our team! Whilst our core team is a small (yet perfectly formed!) group, we also work with a range of skilled and experienced associates and over the next few editions of Yobah Life, we’ll be introducing you to them and us!

This time we’re meeting Platform Engineer, James Pollard

Who are you?

I’m James and I’ve recently joined Yobah as a Platform Engineer within the Tech Ops Team

What’s your background? 

Prior to joining Yobah, I worked for an MSP in East Yorkshire supporting mainly the education sector. I bring with me over a decade’s worth of experience and knowledge in the IT industry which I’m looking forward to applying to this role.

What does your day usually look like? 

Usually starts off with a hot cup of coffee, then getting stuck into projects. Working with our cloud technology, whether that’s designing, implementing, supporting, or coming forward with new proposals in technology.

What’s your favourite thing about Yobah Life?

Working from home is a massive change for me which I’m slowly adapting to! I love working on exciting and challenging projects with the cloud technology we offer.

Most likely to be on your playlist?

Depends on the mood!, Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, The Black Keys just to name a few!. I also love a bit of Drum & Bass, house, and synth-wave!

What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was growing up, I wanted to be a Formula 1 driver. I’ve been a fan since the early 00’s and I haven’t stopped watching since.
