Welcome to the (Rent) Jungle

Rent Jungle is excited to introduce its newest team members, Grant Bachman and Sarah Spock. At the Rent Jungle offices, we always like to pose a few silly questions to our new hires, such as “What is your biggest fear?” While these questions are fun ice-breakers, we want our readers to get to know the real Grant and Sarah, and what brings them to our company!

Grant Bachman joins Rent Jungle as a Software Developer. Armed with an economics degree from Penn State University, he chose to pursue a career in programming, which was always an interest of his. Grant was formerly employed in programming at UPMC and in technology services at Epic Systems Corporation. In his new role at Rent Jungle, Grant is working on the backend development on Rent Jungle’s Spider search tool and review tracker software. Grant hopes to improve his programming knowledge in this role by honing his development skills and learning new methodologies. Grant’s long-term goal is to start his own company.

Rent Jungle is growing so quickly that we have not one, but two new employees to introduce you to. Now that you know a little about Grant, allow us to introduce you to Sarah Spock! Sarah joins the Rent Jungle team as a Software Engineer for the Spider team. Sarah brings an extensive background, including both frontend and backend work for a variety of companies, including Home Depot, Westinghouse and Xilinx. Sarah earned a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, and would like to advance her skills in data analysis through her new position at Rent Jungle. “I love working on a team with other talented programmers. I feel this will enhance my skills as a software professional,” Sarah said of her new role. Outside of the office, Sarah enjoys reading, traveling and exploring new places, and arts and crafts.

If you have a chance to visit the Rent Jungle offices, be sure to stop by and say hello to Grant and Sarah! Be sure to follow the Rent Jungle blog for the most up-to-date company news and developments!
