Meet Matt McBride, Director of Technology and Development
Hi everyone, I’m Matt McBride. I began work at Epproach Communications in the summer of 2015 and I have loved my time here so far.
I was born and raised in Jersey Shore, NJ (you can still hear my accent!). I attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ for a degree in History and Education. I then went back to school in NC for Computer Engineering. Here in NC, I’ve received several industry certifications, such as Computer Upgrade and Repair, Linux Administration, Server Architecture, Network Design/Administration, and Web Development.
I began my work at Epproach with re-designing networks to work with an SSID per-unit system, which allowed for the optimization of network configurations – ultimately enhancing the Epproach WiFi user’s experience. I have since headed up the Research & Development department to partner with existing vendors, as well as to research and reach out to new technology partners. I help to stay on top of IEEE protocols and various changes that may affect Epproach or the industry as a whole.
My favorite part about this job is the opportunity to bring my ideas to fruition and create a great product/service for each of our customers. I also love the fast-paced day-to-day operations and the ever-changing tasks the job brings. There’s never a dull moment at Epproach!
