This installment features Nate Ptacek, Video Librarian for Patagonia. Head over to our sister site DAM Learning Center to check it out.
Welcome to our first in a series highlighting some of the key team members at Extensis. We’ll peel back the curtain to reveal their contributions to everything from engineering to marketing to customer service. Through these interviews, we hope to provide a strong sense of the Extensis mission, upcoming innovation, our culture, and maybe, depending on the subject, a little bit about their hopes, dreams and what makes them happiest.
