Influencer Profile: Jeff Ramos
August 24th, 2011 by
Originally from the New Orleans area, Internet Marketing Associate Jeff Ramos lived in Atlanta for 7 years before taking a job at a high school in San Francisco coaching the Varsity Boys Soccer Team. He stayed in San Francisco for about a year before moving to Lake Tahoe and working for Heavenly Ski Resort. After dealing with 600 feet of snow, he decided that it wasn’t the place for him and moved back to his hometown — not to mention warmer weather. He’s loving every second of being in the city again and eating the great food New Orleans has to offer. His favorite foods here are shrimp po’boys (which he usually has about 4 a week) and crawfish.
Tell us about yourself! Where’d you go to school? Are you a NOLA resident originally?
I recently moved back after a little over a year in California. I spent this past winter in Lake Tahoe skiing and loved every second of it but I missed my family and had to be closer to home. I grew up in New Orleans and am glad to call it home again. I moved to Atlanta when I was a teenager and always knew I would be back.
You’re one of our newer employees — how long ago did you start? How’s SI been so far?
I’ve been here 2 months now and am enjoying the different challenges I am faced with each day. SI has been great so far, as I have learned different things everyday I have been here. The employees here have really made it an easy transition with all the help I have received.
What do you find yourself doing around the office?
A little bit of everything, whether it’s publishing content, performing QA or any other task that comes my way.
I hear you do some coaching on the side — tell us about it!
I have been coaching youth soccer for the past 8 years. I enjoy teaching and being involved with youth sports. Currently I am coaching 2 teams based with the Chicago Fire Organization of Louisiana.
Anything you’d like to be spending more time on? In the ideal world, what would you be doing all day?
I would like to spend more time on blogging and getting involved more in social media. In my ideal world I would love to be on top of a mountain skiing or sitting front row at Old Trafford rooting for Manchester United!
Do you come from a marketing or Internet background? How do you use your skill set at SI?
I had some experience before coming to Searchinfluence performing Quality Assurance on different websites and other random tasks to ensure the quality of our sites. Things are a little different at SI, but I am enjoying learning the ins and outs of SEO.
