Meet the Scale Team
To me, our clients are just people trying to get work done. I enjoy creating solutions and executing plans that help them succeed. I love meeting with people and presenting the hard work that my team has accomplished. Seeing a client smile at the end of a meeting is just icing on the cake. The passion I have for my profession stems from a natural sense of curiosity. I like figuring out how things work and why they work. Give me a tough problem, and I’ll find a solution. Let me know what you’re trying to accomplish, and I’ll develop a plan of attack. I have worked with governors, presidential candidates, and hundreds of clients all over the country. Talk to me about your business goals and I’ll put a team in place that can reach them.
CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER
I try to solve any client’s problems in a way that doesn’t leave them feeling like someone just spoke to them in another language. My hope is to offer up my technical knowledge while treating everyone with the kindness they deserve. I really do use every opportunity to learn, improve, and grow.
Growth of knowledge is its own spiritual journey. I want to be remembered as someone who was always there to lend a hand. I’m grateful to be here working at Scale Technology.
BUSINESS RELATIONS MANAGER
Andy recently retired as a full-time member of the Army National Guard. His last duty as an IT Instructor was beyond rewarding for him. Connecting with new students in each class and knowing that both sides received value from the experience was the part of the job he appreciated the most. He loves helping people and improving processes, so coming to work for Scale Technology was a great next step for his abilities. The focus of his work is the same in business as it was in the military: Entertain the audience, facilitate a knowledge transfer, get feedback, and evaluate.
Andy believes in making the best out of a situation and finding the expert in everyone. He’s learning every day that active listening is an underrated skill.
Andy comes to us with 31 years of experience in the military, leadership training, and Instructor training. He enjoys helping other people resolve their problems.
Andy has more than 10+ years of experience in his field. He likes letting people know they have been heard and that they have a voice in the matter at hand. He hears the problem areas by active listening.
Andy is from Vilonia, AR, and lived there for most of his life. He currently lives west of Conway in the thriving metropolis of Bigelow. He enjoys the peacefulness there.
Andy is passionate about his 3 children and grandchildren, family, and friends. He looks forward to new experiences with them, especially any time they can show their creativity.
He tries to make the most of his free time by spending it with his family or building different projects. Anything from a Bigfoot trap with his granddaughter to driving the tractor around with his grandson.
Andy’s favorite movie is Rudy. Fortune tells Rudy when Rudy was about to quit, “……you don’t have to prove nothing to nobody except yourself and after what you have gone through if you haven’t done that by now, it ain’t gonna never happen.”
NETWORK ADMINISTRATOR AND TECHNICAL ALIGNMENT MANAGER
I’m Nicholas Phillips, the newest Network Technician on the Scale Technology team. I’m a sports-loving dog owner who has a genuine passion for technology and how it’s consistently changing the world we live in. I graduated from UCA with a degree in Computer Science.
Despite having a successful 7-year career in the restaurant industry, after I graduated, I decided to take a turn toward what I really loved—researching technology and applying it toward problem-solving. That’s why I joined the Scale Technology team—I love the all-for-one attitude this company takes on, and I love that the environment is built for constant learning and advancement.
On a regular work-day, you can find me in the office doing research, calling vendors, and puzzling out the problems our clients are dealing with. There’s absolutely nothing more exciting to me than the satisfaction that comes with fixing an issue for a client—that sensation of “I did it, I finally fixed this” is unmatched. When I’m not working, you can find me walking one of my four dogs at Two Rivers Park (did I mention I love animals?) or cheering on my favorite sports teams (go Cubs, Bulls, and Bears!).
I’m excited to be a part of the Scale Technology team and I look forward to growing as a network technician, learning as much as possible, and doing everything it takes to best provide for our clients.
NETWORK TECHNICIAN II
Since puzzles, computers, and helping others are the things I’m most passionate about professionally and personally, Network Technician is a perfect fit. Helping clients find answers to particularly difficult problems leaves me with an indescribable feeling of accomplishment. I would say I am especially effective at solving software issues, particularly when that requires finding solutions to those off-the-wall errors that can arise. I hope clients will remember me as the stubborn IT guy who wouldn’t give up and tried everything to get the system working again.
When I got my first computer at 13, I was immediately hooked on technology. I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. Growing up in Clinton, AR (a tiny town largely committed to agriculture and small industry pursuits), I quickly realized I would have to look towards a larger area to be able to start a career based around computers. After spending three years in IT professionally (and a decade solving IT problems on the side), I have built up a reputation for thinking outside the box and approaching problems from different angles.
When my face isn’t hidden behind a screen at work, it’s hidden behind a screen at home. I enjoy gaming and game development, although I will sometimes drag myself away to play guitar…only to return to the screen to write the music.
Hello! My name is Karson Mathews. Born in Oklahoma, I spent some time traveling and made my way to Arkansas. After falling in love with the people and the state, I’ve found myself here for the past 13 years. Having always been motivated to create a strong educational background for myself, I originally studied at the Arkansas Tech University and transferred to the University of Central Arkansas to complete my degree. I make sure to dedicate time to hobbies like disc golf and quality time with my family and friends. I can also be found quite often enjoying some video games with my best friends.
My interests have naturally always lied in technology and I’ve had an innate curiosity about innovation as long as I can remember. This passion grew as I became and adult and graduated college and is why I feel that working at Scale is such a perfect fit for me. Computers have always been something that have brought me both comfort and confidence. Learning just how much technology can benefit and simplify people’s lives has made me eager to explore it further and find new ways to support the safety, capabilities, and wellbeing of people and businesses everywhere.
