Meet the Hearsay Team: Garland Trice, Engineering Manager
March 28, 2018
It’s been a busy start to the new year and with all the excitement, it’s time for us to introduce you to another wonderful member of the Hearsay team. This time, we want you to meet someone from our headquarters in San Francisco, Garland Trice! Garland is the engineering manager for Hearsay’s 1-to-1 outreach, social and compliance products and features.
Favorite thing about Hearsay?
Our team is why I love working here. Everyone is extremely bright, driven and fun to hang around. I’ve learned and grown so much working alongside them as well as making lifelong friends in the process.
What has been your favorite team-building activity?
Our offsite to a winery in Napa was incredible. It’s just something about unlimited wine, bubble soccer and good music in a vineyard all to yourself that makes for some fun times.
What Hearsay value do you embrace the most?
I’d say that “Plays Well With Others” is the Hearsay value that I embrace the most. As engineers, we’re constantly coming up with new ideas and techniques to do things. Without this value, our discussions around specific implementations wouldn’t be effective. I’m really glad that our team can and does have healthy debates to get things done the right way for our users.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love sports and I also like to keep my coding skills sharp, so I mashed the two together by making an app, SportsTroll. Go check it out! I also really enjoy snowboarding and playing Xbox.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
That is tough, but I’d have to say, “Perfect is the enemy of good.” It works in all walks of life. Even to this day, I forget it sometimes, but as soon as I remember things almost always get better and closer to what I’d like to achieve.
If you had to plan a spontaneous weekend trip, where and what would it be?
I’d probably just go home and see family or road trip around Cali and soak in the scenery. It’s beautiful along the coast and I haven’t been out there enough.
Favorite place for coffee/food/drinks in San Francisco?
As a native San Franciscan myself, I’d have to second those suggestions. Thanks, Garland!
