 Akshitha joined us at the top of 2014 and has made a tremendous impact to the Unitrends Engineering organization. She exhibits the key characteristics of a developer that moves the needle in terms of results.  Akshitha brings the passion and curiosity needed to create stellar products.  Prior to joining Unitrends, Akshitha was a grad school student with internship experience.  Now she works on the UI/API stack, has worked on the features that our customers love (Hyper-V Instant Recovery and Unitrends Bridge for Hyper-V), and is currently working on key components of new user interface showcased in the Unitrends Free product.

 In her spare time, Akshitha enjoys reading and travel. 

 “Work at Unitrends is challenging and I get to learn something new almost every day. Everyone here is friendly and always willing to help. Unitrends is a great place to work, grow and learn.”


Chance Shealy, Cloud Engineer

Chance joined us in the fall of 2013 and came with significant IT-centric work experience focused on all facets of infrastructure troubleshooting and maintenance.  His background was diverse in the industries supported and the technologies utilized.  Such diversity has afforded Chance the opportunity to hold multiple titles at Unitrends, first as a Customer Support Engineer, Technical Lead, and now as a Cloud Engineer.

He takes initiative not just in troubleshooting issues for customers but also when it comes to developing new methods and tools to help meet the Cloud Operations teams/Unitrends objectives.  His ability to execute with high velocity and team player attitude is a motivating force to those around him and a great addition to Unitrends.

Outside of work, Chance has a strong passion for health and fitness, staying active any way he can.

“I enjoy the day to day challenge working at Unitrends presents of being able to provide insight and support for our rapidly expanding Cloud environment with the Cloud Operations team.”

    I have been working at Unitrends full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Unitrends for a while now. I was here during the explosive growth in 2013 and 2014; I was also here in 2015 during the over expansion and eventual right sizing of the organization; and I’m here now watching the growth return. Unitrends offers a disaster recovery and business continuity platform that is well positioned in the competitive, but quickly growing market of cloud backup and DR. Employees who strive to exceed expectations, recognize change is part of a growing organization, and actively improve their understanding of the product/market will be truly successful. I can’t speak for the rest of the organization, but the vast majority of the sales floor is making more money than they ever have before. Plans are attainable, above industry average, and include aggressive accelerators once you have hit your quota. I think the large numbers of new home owners, newlyweds, and new parents says a lot about how current employees feel about Unitrends. It’s a great indicator that we feel secure in our jobs and strong financially. Life hasn’t been prefect at Unitrends, but I can say that it has significantly changed my life for the better. I know I’m not the only one and I know that I won’t be the last.

    Cons

    Sales is a lifestyle. You need to be able to handle the down months and the stressful calls. You also need to understand that Unitrends is in a growth stage which means change: changing territories, changing managers, changing leadership, changing product… If you want to come in every day, do the same thing, and the head home at 5:00 this isn’t the environment for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You can see the improvements everywhere.

    Interview

    Met with my boss and she helped me to build a job that would fit my work schedule.We talked about what I like about my job and what I do not like. I felt like she created a job that suits me well and one that I will continue to try to work really hard in.
