One of the great things about working at Rackspace is that I constantly find myself surrounded by people who never want to stop learning. Rackers, myself included, share an unquenchable thirst to know more about the latest technologies, the values that define our communities and the strengths of each other.
Like all Rackspace locations, our Blacksburg, Va. location (affectionately called “Racksburg”) has a very distinct energy. It has its own unique culture.
The maturation of cloud computing is driving global growth, and the demand for multilingual support. Since a relatively small percentage of companies invest in formal language training programs, professionals have begun to rely upon translation apps to cope with the increasing volume of international requests. However, in the expanding global market a deep understanding of local culture is needed to provide quality support, and for that you need more than just an extensive vocabulary. While translation apps may seem like a great short term solution, failing to address the impact of language barriers can be costly to companies in the long run. Despite their usefulness, translation apps just can’t cut it when it comes to customer service.
When it comes to community support, Rackspace is generous in giving back. As part of our second quarter Rack Gives Back program, San Francisco Rackers voted to make charitable donations to multiple organizations that focus primarily on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).Winners included the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Open Oakland and the Ada Initiative. But Rackers made the largest charitable gift to Black Girls Code (BGC).
If there’s one thing all Rackers agree on, it’s that no two days at the office are alike when you work at Rackspace.
For four years now, the San Antonio Area Foundation has been fortunate to partner with Rackspace to present the annual Nonprofit Technology Summit.
This summer, we brought several interns aboard at our San Francisco Office (SFO). In this blog series, these interns share tales of their times as Rackspace summer interns.
There’s nothing quite like a promotion to both stroke the ego and demolish one’s comfortable sense of security.
One of our core values at Rackspace is “Treat Rackers Like Friends and Family.” This value is a huge part of who we are as individuals, and it’s something deeply embedded within the fabric of our company. That’s why it’s pretty common to hear stories about Rackers taking care of each other. What we’ve learned over the last few years is that when we band together, we can create something of value that’s greater than ourselves.
