Lab Partner: Jim Lookabaugh

When you are interacting with Exclamation Labs, there is a good chance that you are unaware of the talent fueling your project. We work with some pretty spectacular people who are truly experts in their field. Take a few minutes to get to know them, personally and professionally, and see why these folks are the "special sauce" in our recipe for success.

Meet Jim!

Q: Give us a quick overview: Tell us about your role at eLabs. How long have you been here, what roles have you played? What is your favorite thing about working at Exclamation Labs?

Having joined the company in the fall of 2020, I’m a team member helping configure and deliver midPoint and Provision to clients. Our clients want to maintain or heighten data security, and we show them how to make best use of identity management tooling to do just that. I also enjoy participating in webinar presentations, sharing how our solutions can bring together a number of different enterprise systems to unify identity information.

"Jim is the ideal team player," said Jonathan Hill, IAM Team Lead. "He brings IAM development experience, excellent communication skills, and enthusiasm to deliver his best work every day."

Jim is a high-energy member of our eLabs team. 

Since we’re here in the “Lab,” time for an exam! No right or wrong answers, but it is rapid fire. We'll call this "10 questions in 60 seconds." Tell us the first thing that comes to your mind:

1. What would you name the autobiography of your life?

Greatest Hits… & Misses, Vol 2

2. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

Sculpt, particularly in soapstone - its coloration and patterning are fairly interesting to the eye.

3. When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?Walking the dog; he’s so excited to “hit the bricks”.

4. If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?

The Robot in Lost in Space; seemed to have a pretty good time flailing his arms and yelling “Danger!”

5. What is something you learned in the last week?

My dog seems to have spent the past half year learning to open the sliding patio door simply by watching me.  Hmmm.  I need to figure out some steps to avoid being outsmarted here.

6. What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?

Snow skiing with friends new and old.

7. What chore do you absolutely hate doing?

Cleaning the oven has worn out its welcome.

8. If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?

Abraham Lincoln.

9. What’s the coolest (or most important) trend you see today?

More outdoor dining options; maybe they can remain a bit more of a permanent fixture.

10. What would you most like to tell potential eLabs employees or customers?

For me, it’s about working in the company of capable and friendly colleagues. Makes saying “happy to help” second-nature.

We recognize the critical impact each employee creates in helping our clients and us achieve success. Check back for more monthly highlights of our talented eLabs team.
