Trey gives you an inside look at what it’s like to be on the Receiving Team here at Adafruit!
My name is Trey and I work in the Receiving Department here at Adafruit.
We in Receiving are the “first line of defense” against any problems that may eventually trickle down to our rad costumer base. Every week hundreds of items come through our doors, mostly components and gadgets we will use to manufacture cool things or to sell but even things like toilet paper and snacks for our staff! Each item is tracked on it’s journey from around the world by us Receivers and on arrival put through an individual quality assurance check. Then, my job specifically, is to put all this stuff into our database and help the storage team know what we have and figure out where it all goes.
Adafruit is filled with a diverse and motivated group of intensely kind people all working within their own teams while supporting the organization as a whole. The teamwork, generosity, and good spirit of each team member hangs in the air and everyone tries their hardest to fight against the idea that work can’t be fun. Mostly, it is the most welcomed I have ever felt in any job I’ve ever had and I couldn’t think of a better place to be!
