Employee Spotlight: Tom Meagher

Beast Code has some amazingly talented employees in its ranks. The Employee Spotlight series highlights the talented individuals who work here across our different departments. Each month, we’ll be featuring an interview here on the blog and our social accounts.

For this month’s Employee Spotlight, we spoke with Tom Meagher, a Cyber Security Specialist on our IT and Security team.

If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see?

This is a hard one, being a sports fanatic, I can think of countless sporting events I would have loved to witness. However, I’d say one event I would have wanted to witness is Woodstock. It was unlike any other time in America where people came together to have a good time and be free. Not to mention all the musical geniuses that took the stage. 

 What 3 words would you use to describe Beast Code?

Innovative – Never one to shy away from solving complex problems with cutting edge technology.   Challenging – Every day brings new challenges and opportunities to use our skills to help the company grow and succeed.    Rewarding – The job itself is inherently rewarding due to the nature of the work we do.  Beast Code also rewards us with regular catered breakfasts and lunches, and sponsored events.

 How do you balance your career and family?

Being blessed with two active school-aged children and a beautiful wife who also works, this is always a challenge. Luckily, Beast Code has an awesome remote work policy that ensures I can be present when anything comes up. Most company events are family-friendly as well. My daughter and I had a blast during the recent paint night at the office.

What are you most proud of from time your time with Beast Code?

Honestly, it’s watching the company grow, and knowing the work we all do is part of that growth. I believe we have something really special going on here at Beast Code. 

If you weren’t working at Beast Code, what do you think you would be doing?

I would most likely still be working a Cyber Security position somewhere else. I would also be bored out of my mind as most of these positions are filled with tired and outdated processes that keep up the status quo.

What is your motto or personal mantra?

Never say never, because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.
