Welcome to the fifteenth installment of our employee spotlight! Today you’ll get to meet one of our SEO Managers out of the Chicago office, Tyler Rooney!
Q: What do you look forward to most on Monday?
A: I look forward to listening to everyone’s weekend stories. With being in such a small office, we all like to start our mornings to talk about what everyone did over the weekend. Someone always has some fun and crazy story to share.
Q: What is your biggest accomplishment at Wpromote?
A: Being promoted to SEO Manager from SEO Specialist.
Q: What is your favorite Wpromote event?
A: The first annual Chi-Town Wpromote Bowling Tournament. It was a hard fought battle to the finals between Andrew McLellan and I. But even though I let Andrew win, it was still a blast. You can’t beat your boss! (I swear I didn’t choke…)
Q: Who is your favorite coworker and why?
A: The whole Chicago team, without a doubt. The other offices are pretty cool too, I guess.
Q: When were you hired? What was your starting position?
A: I was hired in February of 2015 as an SEO Specialist. I was actually the 4th person hired on in the Chicago office. It’s been incredible to be a part of the growth of this team.
Q: Do you have a morning mantra/routine? What is it?
A: Watch Sportscenter while I eat breakfast. Walk to work while listening to either a podcast or one of my many Spotify playlists, tell everyone good morning, and get going!
Q: What’s your favorite book?
A: The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg – this is an amazing book that explains the science and nature behind how habits are formed through amazing stories and real life occurrences.
Q: What’s your go-to Chicago activity?
A: Going to White Sox games. White Sox games are my home away from home. It’s hard to beat a summer night at the ballpark with a cold beer – Miller Lite of course.
Q: What’s your perfect Sunday-Funday?
A: Football. Every Football Sunday you can find me at the local bar wearing my green and gold watching the Packers play. The Bears fans here love it.
