A: I have been with PhishLabs for 6 months.
A: I live in North Mount Pleasant.
A: I moved to Charleston in 2006 because my brother was working here in tech and kept telling me how much he liked working in Charleston’s tech community.
A: I can’t speak about our technical work for security reasons, but I will say that the mission of PhishLabs in preventing, protecting against, and fighting phishers is really exciting. We wear the white hats, we are the good guys and there’s a great sense of pride in that.
A: Charleston is such a fun, energetic, scenic community, that it’s a natural location to recruit great, young talent. Of course, tech companies have realized that the weather, the history, and the culture here make it an ideal location for their employees and thus their headquarters.
A: There is lots of opportunity so it’s important to spend time in the interview making sure that not just the position, but the company is right for you, and you for them.
A: Connecting Tech Talent
A: Living in Charleston is like being constantly on vacation while you are also accomplishing your goals at work.
A: First, I think other cities could take note of how the laid-back attitude and desire to cultivate creativity has drawn in technical talent. Also, I think more big businesses should have hubs here for technical departments
A: You’ll find me at the beach most weekends! There are also amazing family activities like going to the children’s museum or aquarium, walking around during second Sundays on King, hitting the Farmer’s Market, or going to one of the Charleston county parks.
A: I would have to say the beach at Isle of Palms is my favorite spot in Charleston though Waterfront park is a close second.
A: I love Restaurant Week, so I can experience great restaurants like Circa 1886, Hall’s Chophouse, and Grille 225 at discounted rates.
A: I love going on a harbor cruise and being able to see the Ravenel bridge from the water. The bridge is an iconic landmark, it symbolizes Charleston to me.
A: can you run into Bill Murray at a Riverdogs game!
