Tony Mendoza
Senior Director of IT

I’ve worked at Spectra for more than two decades. Our IT department supports our worldwide employee base to enable them to go the extra mile for our customers. My team was tested in 2020 with a serious ransomware attack. We were able to completely recover and get our associates back up and running without losing any customer data. By sharing our story, I hope to help other organizations around the world overcome these kind of attacks as well.

Matt Ninesling
Director of Hardware Engineering

I have been at Spectra for 21 years in operations, engineering, and product management roles. I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to work on technology that some of the largest data users in the world are using. Getting to know these customers and understand their needs has led to many new features being introduced into our products. We have a fun environment at Spectra. Any time we have a new software release, we give it a code name based on a ‘14er’ (a mountain higher than 14,000 feet). Luckily, there are 53 ‘14ers’ in Colorado, where we are headquartered. While the code names don’t make it past our corporate branding team, they bring some levity to our engineers. Read More
