    Meet Media Temple: Mary Lowe - The Media Temple Blog

    A company's culture often reveals itself in the extremes, like the large events and little knick knacks around the office. To that extent, the person responsible for all that has to be attuned with the whole team, from CS floor to the C-suite.

A Friday in the Life of A Media Temple Employee

Written by Mary Lowe


7:46 AM 

I exit the Metro Expo Line at the La Cienega / Jefferson Station. Media Temple's transit credit program allows me to trade in my parking pass for metro credit. See’s Candies is temptingly close from the stations' steps but, because it’s not open yet, I muster the strength to walk by it without pressing my face against the glass.

8:01 AM 

I arrive at Media Temple. I walk into one of our three kitchens, grab a Chemex, and start brewing my daily coffee. A good morning is always a bit better with a smooth cup of coffee, and my colleagues have shown me the way of the Chemex. I pour myself a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch (cereal is available 24/7 here), and, now that I have my fuel, I head back to my desk to dive into my inbox and update my project list.

8:57 AM 

Time for my weekly sync-up with my team in the Beehive. The Beehive (one of our conference rooms, which literally looks like a beehive) is a two-story structure designed by Eric Owen Moss, the celebrated Los Angeles architect and Director of Southern California Institute of Architecture. Architecture students are constantly asking to photograph it, and I get to meet in it on a daily basis (and I actually interviewed in it)!

9:32 AM 

I stop by my friend’s desk to say hi to her dog. Dogs are allowed every day at Media Temple, but there always seem to be a few more on Fridays.

11:42 AM 

The broadcast just went out for today’s Freeloader Friday! Every Friday, our Employee Experience team has lunch catered for the whole company.And they mix it up: We could have Italian one week, Mexican the next, and Hawaiian the following week. Every Monday, we receive advance notice about the Friday menu. Waiting in line is a great chance to chat with folks from other teams about their weekend plans. The line can be long but hey, at least there is delicious free food only a few short minutes away.

12:16 PM 

The “Blue Sky” discussion just started. Once a month, our Product team hosts a brainstorming meeting where we can all chime in on our products. This includes information about what we’re developing, how we could make our products better, etc. I don't always have ideas to share but it's great to be included in the process, so I try to attend to see how our ideas develop into new features or new products.

1:00 PM: 

Time for our weekly walk around the block. Since many of us are members of GDFit, anyone who wants to come (and their dogs) can take a lap around the block to get some fresh air.

2:34 PM 

I decide to take my laptop and sit in our break room to mix up my work space. Now that I’m rejuvenated from my walk and I’ve got my daily trail mix, I’m ready to tackle my project list in JIRA. Talk about making things easy - JIRA keeps track of my projects and notifies anyone who needs to know the progress in one fell swoop.

4:15 PM 

Time for Ping Pong. There is a group of four of us who play every Friday afternoon. We consider them practice sessions for when we host our Media Temple table tennis tournaments… and this year, we’re going to win it all!

5:00 PM 

I’m done with the work day, but the fun has just begun. We have Happy Hours regularly, and today we have lanes booked at Lucky Strike in Hollywood. In the past, we’ve bought out movie theaters for private screenings, hosted trivia nights, sang Karaoke, and even spent an evening enjoying the Dodger in their All-You-Can-Eat Pavilion. “Living passionately” is definitely one of my favorite company values and tonight is no exception.

    Social Media Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Media Temple (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the Director of Communications, and then interviewed with the Director of Digital Marketing. Both interviews seemed to contradict each other, where the Director of Communications would be my boss, however, the digital marketing director seemed to want to have me do two jobs (PPC and organic social).
