I am Aaron Pollock. I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area almost 10 years ago from Wisconsin looking for better weather and better opportunities.
I've spent my time here expanding my knowledge in everything IT, not to mention making a bunch of friends and finding my wife! I had nothing on this site for a long time, and determined a simple page is better than nothing. Cheers!
I currently head up the IT team at thredUP, overseeing the strategy and implementation of our computing and network strategy. Our team works with every aspect of the company, from our warehouses to our corporate office. I've vastly expanded my cloud computing knowledge and helped bring structure to thredUP's computer systems.
As one of Jawbone's System Administrators, I handled management of our virtual hosts and network connectivity across global sites. Working on a large IT team helped me really expand my skillset, as I was able to use systems I had never touched before.
I was the sole IT employee at 3VR, managing everything from servers to phones to basic technical support. I helped the company save money and rolled out custom collaboration solutions to help employees get work done.
Aaron consistently works above and beyond what I need him for. Even if a problem seems tricky at first, he comes up with an innovative solution to make it work. I've never met someone who can so quickly learn new methods and new skills, that's one of many reasons he's impressed me so much over the years we've collaborated.
Aaron is a quick and efficient coder. He would be given a task and often have a working, well-designed solution within a matter of hours.
