Meet Jonathan Hill!

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 eLabs?

I am an Identity Access Management (IAM) Engineer. In layman’s terms, I configure a system that orchestrates permissions granted to individuals within an organization any time they have a personnel change. I have been with Exclamation Labs for almost 7 years now. I started as an intern in 2014 and joined the website development team a couple months later. In 2017, I started working on the company’s first IAM project and haven’t looked back since. My favorite thing about working at Exclamation Labs would have to be the sharing of knowledge. A lot of companies have silos of information, but here everyone is excited to share their knowledge with the rest of the team.

Brandon Powers, Lead Developer, shared how much he appreciates Jonathan's contributions to the team.

"It has been incredible to be a witness to Jonathan’s growth since he joined our team in 2014. Jonathan is an extremely hard worker, always putting in the effort to see things through completely. He is an expert and a thinker, always bringing quality ideas and contributions to our team, projects, and clients. Thank you, Jonathan!"
