Name: Hunter Schoening
What do you do at Josh? QA Engineer, try and break stuff!
Where are you from originally? Minneapolis MN
Which office do you work in? Denver
What do you love about the smart home? I think the scenes are what interest me most, the ability to change so much about your home with simple commands is so cool.
What are you most excited about over the next few years? I’m very excited to continue to learn the ins and outs of what makes up the Josh system, how it works, and to see the company grow and become THE name in home automation. I’m excited to feel more and more at home at Josh and learn from my coworkers and become a valuable part of the Josh team.
iPhone or Android? iPhone
What do you do for fun? I love to rock climb, mountain bike, fly fish, ski, camp and hike. Pretty much anything that gets me outside and in the mountains.
If you could go anywhere, where would it be? I would really love to visit New Zealand, but I think my next big trip will be a road trip around Iceland.
Favorite restaurant in the world? Cholon Bistro is one of my favorites right now in Denver.
Favorite IoT / smart home product? Don’t own any yet but excited to integrate smart home products into my home once I bring home a Josh system!
What is your favorite feature of Josh? Definitely scenes, being able to manipulate the state of your home with such simple commands, but I also love the ability to monitor your home from anywhere through the use of the app/portal. I think that is a huge selling point that provides people with an extra sense of security knowing they can leave their home and check on the state of it later, from anywhere.
Favorite books / reading material / websites? I’m definitely a fan of fiction, and mostly the crime/adventure genre. In terms of websites, I’d say I spend the majority of my time spent on the internet browsing Reddit, an easy way to keep myself entertained during some downtime.
