To give his passion a home at Alasco, Tom created the Slack channel #keebs and in doing so provides a platform for exchange among mechanical keys enthusiastic Alascians. It’s a movement that has swept others along. In #keebs, a small community has emerged, sharing their latest achievements, as well as tips and tricks, and Tom has already inspired other Alascians to get their first mechanical keyboard. For him, his keyboard is an essential part of his desk setup, and investing time and money in the tools he works with every day is a way for him to show appreciation for his work and his achievements.
As Alasco’s very first employee, Tom has been shaping and sustaining the company’s culture driven by the values of Trust, Ambition, Appreciation, and Positivity. As a Software Engineer, besides the daily programming, Tom also recruits new engineers and thinks strategically about how our backend should look in the future – all of this, of course, accompanied by the satisfying sound of his keyboard.
