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.

With an explorer’s heart and over ten years of Product experience, Brian brings both curiosity and wisdom to his role as CampMinder’s Director of Product. His superpower lies in his willingness to ask “why?”, a simple act that yields important insights about how to design the best possible solutions.

Bryan, or B-Rich as we like to call him, brings valuable experience as a software engineer and a team leader to CampMinder. He spends his time with his wife, daughter, and sister—and he’s exceedingly proud of all three and their success in STEM careers. Out on the ski slopes is a great place to hang out with Bryan, just don’t suggest a coffee or a beer afterwards—he’s (shockingly) never acquired a taste for either.

Ryan is an avid road tripper and ultra-runner. With a personal motto of “persistence,” it's not surprising that he is drawn to challenging, time intensive feats which include ultra-marathons (he’s completed approximately 20), running once for 32 hours straight, and road tripping across the country alone in a ‘93 SAAB filled to the brim! Ryan also loves a clean space and in college had a job detailing cars - this is still one of his favorite things to do. Don’t be surprised if you see him venturing from ultra to ultra across the country in an impeccably clean van someday, #vanlife. As part of our Product Team and a former camper himself, Ryan loves being able to translate big ideas into deliverable items to improve the user experience.

Last year, with the pull to explore, Sean took off on a 5-month road trip across the United States. In the span of four days he went from the lowest point to the highest point in the lower 48 states, ending at the peak of Mt. Whitney, which is his favorite hike thus far. When not helping clients as a member of the Client Support team, you can find Sean running, hiking, playing soccer, or crushing some chorizo tacos.

Fun fact: Sean canoed the entire Mississippi River in the summer of 2014.

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.

Taylor’s favorite activities depend a bit on where you find him. If he’s outdoors, he’s hiking or skiing with his wife and dog, in his backyard he’s probably playing corn hole, and inside he’s usually watching the Nuggets and Avalanche or playing board games. Taylor’s dog is named Wonder, which is one of CampMinder’s core values. Between that and his experience as the Director of YMCA Camp Santa Maria, Taylor is a perfect fit on our team. If you really want to get Taylor talking, just bring up the topic of cast iron cookware. He’ll tell you all about his latest project of restoring a chicken fryer he bought for $6.

Least Favorite Food: Taylor hates whipped cream. He is also allergic to strawberries, so that works out pretty well actually.

Travis is officially a Colorado native, but grew up mostly in rural Oklahoma, where he had an old red tractor in the front yard, a pickup named ol’ Yeller in the drive, and a hound dog named ol’ Blue that milled around in the shade. After weathering years of Oklahoma’s sweltering heat, tornadoes, and general lack of mountains, in 2004 he moved back to Colorado and hasn’t looked back. Travis spends his days at CampMinder working to elevate the camp industry as a whole, and, as a by-product, introducing camps to the ‘awesome’ that is the CampMinder platform.

You might also find him wielding a large camera, donning a welding helmet, turning wrenches, throwing his kids in the air, drinking iced mochas (aka chocolate milk) from Ozo Coffee Co., or working on his family’s small fleet of Volkswagen buses (#vanlife).

Fun fact: Travis has owned more than 200 classic vehicles.

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.

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.
