The HQ Crew Gears Up for Winter
The Give’r Garage team is gearing up for what we’ve decided will be our best winter yet. It’s been nearly ten years since we opened shop here in Jackson and things have changed, grown, and blossomed in that decade. Reflecting on our humble beginnings, we couldn’t be more appreciative of the employees who have joined us along the way. Their efforts in everything from rearranging the garage, waxing gloves out the wazoo, hand-branding your initials on countless pairs of gloves, carefully checking all shirts and hats for the high quality, and creating a positive and inspiring energy has made us who we are today. We’re wildly grateful for each member of our team and especially those committed to killing it in the garage. Here’s a little bit about those who are behind-the-scenes at the Give’r Garage making it all a reality:
Julia Bell Pope, Fulfillment Lead
Favorite HQ task: I enjoy branding!
Favorite winter activity: Skiing! and this winter I’m hoping to try ice and water fishing too.
Jessica, Fulfillment Associate
Favorite HQ task: My favorite garage task is reading the notes on the orders.
Favorite winter activity: I love hiking!
Chris Rey, Production Lead
Favorite HQ task: Waxing!
Favorite winter activity: Backcountry skiing. The park is my favorite place! Right now, I'm working on my ski mountaineering but also enjoy pow laps with my crew!!!
Dowda, Chief Earth Officer and Garage Guru
Favorite HQ task: Making sure that HQ health and HQ progress is always moving forward.
Favorite winter activity: I love skiing, but after 12 yrs of Dogsledding, I would say multi day/overnight dogsled trips are my favorite.
Virginia, Sales Associate
Favorite HQ task: My favorite Give'r activity is branding! It's a unique garage task that makes someone's order extra special and adds a more creative side to the typical work day.
Favorite winter activity: Skiing!!! I grew up skiing in Virginia and have only continued to fall more in love with the sport out here. Also, getting to wear my Give'r mittens while doing my favorite winter activity is an added bonus. It makes the work and play balance a little more stable knowing I'm working for a company that promotes getting after it outside!
Caitlin, Production Associate
Favorite HQ task: Probably waxing while listening to music with the night crew!
Favorite winter activity: I love snowshoeing to a backpacking site and making a cozy fire.
Everett, Fulfillment Associate
Favorite HQ task: I love when we’re finishing up orders and knowing that someone across the country is gonna get some bomber gear that they’ll be able to use all ski season this upcoming winter. It gets me stoked for ski season myself.
Favorite winter activity: Skiing. Obviously, how else do you live in Jackson full time? But finding some hidden shots of powder that other people have overlooked, it doesn’t get better.
Dalton, Production Associate
Favorite HQ task: I like all garage tasks equally.
Favorite winter activity: I’ve never had a winter in Jackson, so I’m not sure what I like to do yet.
