CULTURE MATTERS

Many people think a company’s culture is defined by lighthearted moments in the office. Ping pong tables, happy hours, and nerf guns. We believe it goes much deeper than that. It is the blending of our values, our passions, and our purpose. At CampMinder, we are proud to celebrate our team culture and to help you bolster your own.

Our culture is the manifestation of who we are as people. Guided by our core values, we’re an unapologetically quirky team rooted in professionalism and personal growth. Why does this matter? Because you deserve to know who you’re doing business with. CampMinder is not a product; it’s a culture.

If culture matters to you as much as it does to us, you might want to join our team.

Shannon moved to Colorado from small-town Texas to join CampMinder's Software Engineering team -- a move he attributes to his desire to work for a company that lives its core values. What he likes most about Colorado is the variety of outdoor activities and the four distinct seasons; he's been checking out his new home state via offroading and exploring in his new Jeep Wrangler while listening to podcasts (current favorite: Ologies). This exploratory spirit is perhaps what contributes to Shannon's interest in GIS (geographic information systems), a way of plotting data that relates to how people interact with the world around them. As a Software Engineer at CampMinder, Shannon works on maintaining and modernizing the system as well as contributing to new development.

Fun Fact: Shannon identifies with moose in that they are hearty and built for snow.

Surat was raised in Virginia, but has been in Colorado for 12 years, considering himself a local. He recently ventured into the world of snowboarding, an experience teaching him that you can’t be afraid to try new things. With a love for solving problems and tabletop games, he is a Solutions Engineer master by day and Dungeons and Dragons aficionado by night. While he isn’t a fan of cooking, he is a big fan of eating, especially sushi, pho, or ramen.

Fun fact: Once, just to show himself that he could, Surat ate two entire Chipotle burritos in one sitting, an impressive feat.

Will spent three years as a camp counselor in college and then went on to teach outdoor ed for three years. His favorite memories from teaching outdoor ed are marked by his time living in a cabin that was built in the 1900’s for two years in Keystone, Colorado. While the winters were cold and the cabin didn’t have central heat or running water, he did have internet! At CampMinder, Will enjoys problem solving and finding solutions alongside his colleagues on the Client Support team. Outside of work you can find him hiking, backpacking, playing frisbee, watching sports, and enjoying live music, most likely with french fries in hand.

Will Finical

Client Success Manager
Will grew up in Colorado and has lived all over the country with his two great pyrenees pups in places such as LA, Utah, and Washington out of his Sprinter van conversion that he built with refurbished materials. As a trained meteorologist he started doing research and computer programming to help build weather stations. Finding that he really enjoyed development, one thing led to another and he became a Software Engineer. For Will, camp fostered a love for the outdoors and meeting new people. He was drawn to CampMinder because of the meaningful impact he could have on the camp industry while working on fun projects. He enjoys rock climbing, mountaineering, being outside and has a particular passion for skiing, which he started at two years old. His favorite thing about skiing is shredding down the mountain really fast.
