Once a month, fusionSpan will share the talent and hard work of the people that we call our team. From Delivery, Consulting, Operations, and more – we pause to get a little bit personal, showcasing the faces behind the technology solutions that we work on each day. This month we meet fusionSpan Project Manager, Bryan Mobley!

What was your first job? Tell us about it.

Bryan Mobley In high school, I worked for a shoe store in my local mall, which I do not consider my first real job. That would have to be Subway, where I worked as an Assistant Manager. I worked at a location right around the corner from my parents’ house. The franchise owners offered me the job when I was sitting there killing time for another interview. I worked at that location throughout my college years even while I attended school in Orlando. The franchise owners would just add me back onto the schedule whenever I was available.

I personally loved that job because it taught me so much about working with the public and dealing with a team. To this day I am still in contact with the franchise owners because they helped me to keep sight of my goals and helped mold me. I call them my “Work Parents”.

Who has influenced you most in your professional path/career?

I would have to say my parents influenced my professional path. My father is a software engineer, and my mother is a middle school biology teacher. They encouraged me to always pursue my professional goals no matter what and to do what makes me happy. They have taught me the value of always working smarter and harder. They groomed me to be the man I am today, and I am forever grateful.

What’s your favorite part about working in the technology industry? What drew you to it?

My favorite part about working in the technology industry would have to be getting a new project across the finish line.What drew me to the technology industry are the constant innovations and various solutions that can be utilized to solve an issue. I love how no matter how similar two projects may be, they always have their own unique solutions to get them past their respective finish line.

What are the main responsibilities of your current role? What do you enjoy most about your position?

My main responsibility as a Project Manager is to ensure that projects are on track and meet the client’s requirements. I particularly enjoy Sprint Review meetings the most. It reminds me of “Show and Tell” time when I was in elementary school. I always enjoyed being able to showcase something new, provide explanations,and answer any questions. I still get the same feeling of excitement I felt back then.

Looking back, what career advice would you tell your 18-year-old self?

What career advice would I tell 18-year-old Bryan? Oh, man! I would tell him to relax and enjoy the journey. I would also tell him to not look at life as competition against everyone else, but view it as his own “Choose Your Own Adventure” book. Life is going to give you your own set of obstacles and rewards, you just have to be brave enough to play the game!

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not working?

My favorite thing to do when I am not working is to be on my bicycle riding around exploring downtown locations, traversing coastal roads, and racing any riders I encounter along the way. I used to cycle professionally for awhile when I got out of college, but now it is purely for fun. I own 2 road bikes and 1 fixed gear bike.

What words would you use to describe fusionSpan? What have you enjoyed most about being here?

A menagerie of sages is how I would use to describe fusionSpan, because everyone here is not only proficient in their respective specialization but are also ravenous learners of new solutions or innovations. I have enjoyed the camaraderie amongst the fusionSpan employees the most. I particularly enjoy the common ground and connections that we have made outside the typical work discussions, from Dungeons and Dragons to environmentalism to cooking. It is so cool to discover how many things I have in common with people I work with on a daily basis.
