Identity connects us, so Signal uses its ongoing Signalite Social Spotlight to feature our incredible employees for who they really are. The more you learn about them, the more you’ll begin to recognize what makes our favorite individuals unique. Can you identify?
Shahan Mohideen, Director of Sales Operations. Nickname: “Mohideen Machine” or “Energizer Bunny,” to name a few. (“I have lots of nicknames. People rarely call me by my name.”) Self-described as passionate and self-driven. Gives great high-fives and hugs.
Relationship status: “Married, with two little bambinos, Max and Maria.” Age: “Oh, that’s a good question. I forget my age all of the time.” Hometown: Garden Grove, CA or Chicago (“Just because I’ve lived in those places the longest. I’ve lived all over the world, though. I was born in Sri Lanka, lived in Europe and the Middle East.”)
Passions and interests: Traveling (favorite places: Tokyo and Sydney), camping, hiking, the ocean (“I’m a water baby”), triathlons, cooking (“That’s my outlet. I don’t work well with recipes, but I like to look in the fridge and see what I can put together — like ‘Chopped.’ I also love serving my friends and family really cool meals”).
Dislikes: People who are mean for no reason, wasting time and people who wear sunglasses inside. (“I really am known for not having a lot [of dislikes]. I’m pretty laid back.”)
If he could only wear comfortable or fashionable clothing for the rest of his life: “Fashionable, hands down. I had a mentor growing up that told me to live by the mentality of ‘Look good, feel good, do good.’ I think dressing up is an easy way to show people you care.”
His favorite part about working at Signal: “I know it’s cliché, but it is the people. It’s really cool to find this many smart and talented people pushing in the same direction.”
