By Roxanne Rabich, Service Coordinator at Umbrella Managed Systems
Jordan’s background includes a number of years in the food industry, most recently as a line cook/receiver supervisor at Dean & Deluca. His father is a pastry chef, leaving us to ask how Jordan is still so thin! Jordan grew up all around Kansas City but, mostly Oak Grove. He is no stranger to downtown KC and the River Market area. As a boy he worked on Volkswagen’s with his Dad, and went on road trips to car shows. This is something they continue to do in their spare time.
Why did you want to get into IT?
When I was little, one of my grandfathers retired from AT&T the year I was born. He was my child care provider during the summer. My grandfather introduced me to computers at very young age. He taught me the basics of building a computer. So I’ve always been interested in technology.
It's a smaller company. I like the location. The atmosphere was friendly from the minute I walked in the front door.
What do you like most about working here?
I like being a part of a great team that gives positive reinforcement and is willing to take the time to teach somebody something new. It feels like being a part of a family.
Welcome to the Umbrella Family, Jordan! We’re happy to have you on our team!
