Meet a Codefresher
Tyson Tiatia

What was your very 1st job? 

I am super proud of this. When I was 12 or 13, my mother had this big tub of flour we never used. I went to the dollar store and bought balloons. I filled up the balloons and I would sell them as stress balls. I would sell them for $1, so my profit margin was ridiculous!

How did you get into your current job or field?

I knew from college I had a passion for tech and for sales. When I was in college, my degree was a bachelors in integrated studies (combining 3 different studies). 

What’s a fun fact about you that not many people know?

I lived in Southeast Asia for four years while working for a video game company! That was pretty fun. 

What is your favorite activity or hobby that you enjoy outside of work?

I am really into disk golf right now! I am obsessed with it! I also like camping in the summer and snowboarding in the winter months. 

What is your best memory or favorite thing about working at Codefresh?

A few weeks before lockdown, Dan (Chief Open Source Officer) and I went to New York. I was trying to book meetings. We bought a TV and brought it with us, and Dan told me that if I made my goal, I could take the TV home. I got to take it home but had to haul the television around on the subway!

Another good memory is from KubeCon 2019, when we rented a pirate boat for a pre-event party! I am getting really excited for KubeCon North America 2021 as it will be one of our first in-person gatherings
