My name is Scott and I work at Mozy

Welcome to our first anniversary of the “My name is…”, our blog series on introducing you to some of our talented team members who directly contribute to the success of Mozy. Mozy has been fortunate to win “Utah’s Best Place to Work” four times in a row. We’re successful; our products are secure and sustainable, and we value our customers. Having said that, Mozy wouldn’t be the amazing place it is without our dedicated, passionate and generous team members. We are very fortunate to be surrounded by extremely intelligent people who inspire and motivate others around them.

This time, we’d like you to meet Scott Lee, our Director of Marketing. Scott is a key driving force behind all the marketing initiatives that we undertake for our business-to-business products and channel marketing for MozyPro and MozyEnterprise. Scott has provided some key insights to how and where Mozy should position itself, in the B2B space.

My name is Scott and I work at Mozy

I define my workspace as …
Depends on the day or time of day. Sometimes it’s a desk, sometimes a conference room, sometimes the hallway.

A device I can’t live without …
iPhone.
Author’s note: I mean, if you own an iPhone then you know this feeling (myself included)! How did we ever manage without it?!?!?

When I arrive at work, I typically start off by …
Filling up my water cup…must stay hydrated. I check email, the business dashboard, and then usually wander over to the sales team to see how things are going. Then off to meetings or whatever.

My work routine is …
I am a list guy. I make a list of objectives for each quarter, then a list of weekly projects or tasks, and manage to that each day. Of course it doesn’t all get done, but it keeps me focused on the big things while limiting as much minutiae as possible. I even schedule time in my calendar for tasks as if they were meetings. I also float around a lot to talk face to face with people, hear what they think, etc. It’s crazy how many great ideas come from actual conversations! #emailhasitslimits

I do/do not listen to music at work and it helps me work better because …
Definitely do. I have Spotify or Pandora on when I’m at my desk, usually listening to classical if I’m in a heavy analytical mindset, classic rock for pounding through email, or a mix of stuff if I’m writing/reviewing content.

The best advice I can give a recent college graduate looking to do what I do is …
Work hard, work smart, work with others not against them.

Outside of work, I am passionate about …
My family (my wife and I have five children), golf, road cycling, and college sports. Go Cougars!

My eating habits are …
Better than they have been for a while. I have a weakness for chips and salsa though.

If I could be someone for a day – I would be …
Jimmer Fredette in a Utah Jazz uniform.

The “secret sauce” that makes me who I am …
Intense curiosity.

My name is Steve and I work for Mozy

Thanks for tuning back into our monthly series where you get to spend some one-on-one, quality time with some of the shining jewels in Mozy’s crown – our employees. This month we’d like you to meet Steve Jensen, Mozy’s Senior Manager of Public Relations. Steve’s responsibilities include PR in the US, analyst relations, and managing our customer reference program. Steve is one of the most genuinely nicest guys you will ever meet – he is not only genuine in his interactions with others but he is also genuine in his PR efforts for Mozy.

My name is Steve and I work for MozyI define my workspace as …
A place to stare at the screen and pound away on the keyboard while seeking inspiration from Ansel Adams and all 30 major league baseball logos staring back at me.

A device I can’t live without …
My tablet – for personal reading time and play time with my kids.
Author’s note: Steve won his tablet at a company event and has embraced all the benefits that come with owning a tablet – researching, reading, watching movies – all while on-the-go. He just makes us so proud! (single tear glistens at the corner of my eye)

When I arrive at work, I typically start off by …
Being the only person in the office (on the planet?) to read the morning hard copy newspaper.

My work routine is …
Emails, phone calls, defending baseball from attacks by the marketing team, and enjoying the interaction with journalists, analysts, customers, and great vendors.

I do/do not listen to music at work and it helps me work better because …
Usually I don’t listen to music at work. If I did I would miss out on all the zingers from Brent Bird, two cubes over.

The best advice I can give a recent college graduate looking to do what I do is …
If you don’t have a love for how news is created, and the written word in general, go into sales instead.

Outside of work, I am passionate about …
Skiing in the winter, perennial gardening in the summer, and spending time with my family year round.

My eating habits are …
Chicken burgers and burritos somehow make me feel less guilty than hamburgers.

If I could be someone for a day – I would be …
Teddy Roosevelt

The “secret sauce” that makes me who I am …
Talk is cheap. Actions speak louder than words.

Mozy named one of “Best Companies To Work For” in Utah – 3rd straight year

We’re proud to announce that Mozy has been named one of the 25 Best Companies To Work For in Utah for 2011 by Utah Business Magazine — for the *third straight year.*

Though not headquartered in Utah as we once were, a large number of our Mozy employees are in our Pleasant Grove, Utah offices. Our Senior Director of Marketing Dave Robinson, in his “acceptance speech” at the awards banquet in Salt Lake City on December 15, emphasized that Mozy is an awesome place to work because it still feels like a startup in many ways — from the casual dress, foosball,  perks,  etc. — while still having the great benefits offered by EMC and VMware. We’re already seeing that the distinction of winning this award three years in a row is helping attract the best employees to Mozy — whether in Utah, Seattle, Boston, Cork (Ireland) — or any of other other offices worldwide.

We’re proud to be part of such a great company!
