Tim Spurlock, Product & Security Specialist
myFamilyChannel Team Member Since May 2018
What do you do for myFamilyChannel?
I am the Product & Security Specialist on the team. I install all of our hardware into facilities for residents to use and teach them how to properly use it. I also work with the developers, system admins, and other IT consultants working with the myFamilyChannel team to implement processes and systems that improve data security and the privacy of the company.
What is your career background?
My career background is in Information Technology. I just graduated from college, and, in a sense, myFamilyChannel is the first major step into my career!
What’s the most interesting job you’ve had? The most surprising?
So far, this has been my most interesting job. I have learned and experienced a lot of different things that I don’t think I’d see elsewhere at this point in my career. Also, I like working for a start-up and feeling like I’m on the ground level of building something. I feel like I have a role in the process of scaling the business.
What appealed to you about joining the myFamilyChannel team? What do you hope to accomplish?
I first joined myFamilyChannel to get experience through the internship/co-op program for college. After my college credits were satisfied, I stayed on because I like what I’m doing – and working with motivated people also keeps me motivated!
I hope we’re able to scale the operation to be in every senior living facility and also bring myFamilyChannel to the retail market. In the year I’ve been with myFamilyChannel, I’ve written two college reports on the company. I think the myFamilyChannel product will be successful and seeing the fruits of all of our labor will be a great moment!
What do you do for fun?
I usually play video games, hang out with friends or go bowling. Now that I am out of college and have more free time, I’ve been expanding my hobbies and have taken up cooking. That’s always a good skill to have!
