The IT Squad is the steward of SpotHero’s technology infrastructure and operations. Not only are we responsible for ensuring systems are operating properly, but we also manage the total cost of ownership of IT systems and make technology-lifecycle decisions.
We work on projects such hardware installation, manage a plethora of SaaS applications, connect and maintain business application integrations, resolve enterprise system or network disruptions, uphold cybersecurity standards, and troubleshoot technology issues SpotHero employees may be experiencing.
From a proactive standpoint, we configure the systems and firewalls that keep SpotHero computers and tablets safe, while also ensuring that security and anti-virus programs are up-to-date for every single employee. The IT team is also a source of information and we are striving to educate all of our colleagues in the IT tips and tricks we come across.

Born in the Philippines, raised in Southern California, technology was part of my upbringing. Helped my dad build computers as a kid and discovered a love for tinkering. Went to college for a different major (biology), but fell into IT systems administration and support anyway. Worked my way from helping troubleshoot desktop issues to a leadership role where I found my passion for mentoring my team and developing strategic plans for the technology team.
Latest obsession has been my OneWheel – not your typical mode of personal transportation, but probably one of the most fun! Snowboarding in the winter, riding my scooter/motorcycle, and music festivals in the summer, and playing dodgeball year-round.
