ActiveBuilding Employee Spotlight: Jason Yergler
Posted on Tuesday, February 9th, 2016
Welcome to the 8th edition of our Employee Spotlight blog series! Throughout this series we’re interviewing members of our team and discovering what makes them tick.
This time we’re learning more about Jason Yergler, a Client Success Manager who has been with ActiveBuilding since October of last year. Let’s learn what Jason likes most about working at ActiveBuilding, why he stopped using his Windows phone, and what he likes to do when he’s not here in the office.
What is your role at ActiveBuilding? My role here is both parts Implementation Consultant (building portals to the specification of the clients and training staff users) and Account Manager (ensuring the portals are ‘healthy’ via providing support and continuing training as well as keeping staff/residents excited about the portals).
What do you like most about ActiveBuilding? The thing about ActiveBuilding that I most enjoy are the many communication-focused features for both staff and resident users, specifically the way both administrative and engagement content can be disseminated easily. I also enjoy my wonderful colleagues that I get to work with! We have a great group of folks at our Seattle office (and some in other places around the country) that make work very fun.
What has been your favorite project at ActiveBuilding? I haven’t had the opportunity to work on many projects due to my tenure here but it is exciting to work with such a dynamic product that is constantly improving. I anticipate reporting participation when I am highlighted again for the coveted ‘Employee Spotlight’, so stay tuned!
Iphone, Android, or Windows phone? Why? So I had a Windows phone gifted to me when they first came out but there was a major lack of apps for the OS so I opted for an Iphone. Nothing wrong with my Windows phone from a user standpoint but the lack of apps was a deal-breaker, I just gotta have my apps!
Now that we know what phone you prefer, what’s your favorite app? I am a big music fan so I really enjoy Spotify and some card game apps by mobilityware, solitaire and blackjack all day!
What’s your favorite vacation spot? I really like to relax on vacation so the best place I’ve been able to accomplish that would be Ibiza, one of the Balearic islands off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. My fiancé and I are honeymooning in Kauai so there may be a tie for the top spot after we return!
When you’re not being amazing at your job, what do you like to do outside of work? I am a HUGE soccer fan. From the hometown Seattle Sounders to my favorite club team (and 5 time Champions League winners) Liverpool FC, I love to play and watch the sport. I also enjoy reading political/theological philosophy and spending time with our dog, Odessa.
