Why Entech Wednesday: Travis Rice
Name: Travis Rice
Title: Team Lead
I am originally from Williamstown, New Jersey, a small town about 20-30 minutes from the Philadelphia without traffic. I moved to Philadelphia roughly four years ago and have been enjoying it ever since. I am pretty much a huge nerd, but just do a really good job of hiding it – at least I think anyway. I love music, movies, hockey, video games, and telling myself I am going to read that stack of books collecting dust in my office. When I’m able to get some free time, and depending on the season, I enjoy camping, hiking, going to the beach, poker, hanging out with family and friends, and producing music. Fun fact: throughout my four years of college, I worked full-time as a server/bartender at the local TGI Fridays. Let me know if you need any drink recipes. After college, I didn’t want to jump into a 9-to-5 right away and, instead, I decided to do my own thing. I moved into a house with my closest friends, then moved down to Wildwood and worked in Cape May, New Jersey for a summer, came back home and worked in Center City for almost a year. Finally, I got serious and landed a gig with Entech.
Why Travis chose Entech
After providing support as a QA consultant for a large financial client with Entech, I was contacted about possibly joining the Entech team for a web development role, which I couldn’t have been more excited about. This small web development position quickly turned into a challenging, demanding, and very rewarding ride on the knowledge train. Entech has an incredible team that supports one another and pushes each other to perform and solve real problems with simple and innovative solutions. The reason I remain with this dedicated team, and why I wouldn’t choose any other place to work, is because we stay connected to our team goals and immerse ourselves into the work we do. We are proud of what we can accomplish and deliver to our partners. There is no doubt that without this team, I would not be where I am at today.
