Support Team Marks 100,000 Engagement Milestone

One of the main drivers in the founding of Acquia was to support organizations that wanted to use what was then a relatively new technology called Drupal. So it meant a lot as the customer solutions team recently hit the milestone of successfully completing 100,000 support engagements.

This is a particularly rewarding number because it represents the thousands of times we’ve been able to successfully help Drupal users meet the challenge of managing and scaling their sites.

Being an intern at Acquia

I’m not Acquia’s first intern, though I am working a nerf gun’s shot away from him. That title belongs to Charlie Gordon. I’m proud and excited to come to work every day, especially with many of the interns I work with. Isaac Sukin is an experienced Drupalist whose only project at Acquia is making Drupal Commons even more awesome.

A new hire's first week at Acquia

I'm excited to come on board with a whole bunch of other new hires (8 starting on one day!), so it's worth saying a little bit about what the on-site experience is like. I'm a remote employee based out of Portland, OR, so my first week was spent at the office in Woburn, MA to get to know the team. And it was a great week. I expected an office that was friendly, but... office-y. (Covers on the TPS reports, please.) Instead, I got an enthusiastic welcome from a vibrant start-up and I hope that other new hires can say the same.
