Get to Know Tracey Better
Tracey grew up in St. Louis and recently moved to Kansas City. The last several years, she was on-and-off teaching herself web development and working various retail and support jobs. In 2021 she started at Matchbox as a web developer and support engineer. Working here has allowed her the opportunity to branch out and finally move out of St. Louis. Tracey currently lives in Kansas City with her significant other, dog, and cat while working remotely which she’s a huge fan of!
Tracey was hired primarily to assist with the support team but has found herself working heavily with the development team as well. She loves working with the development team to build and create new things, but she also enjoys the challenges and puzzles that support presents. Tracey typically splits her day up with mornings on support, communicating with clients and resolving support requests that come through. Afternoons are spent working on development projects or testing and reviewing teammates’ code.
Tracey’s favorite thing about working at Matchbox is the flexibility.
“I’ve worked for large companies and small companies, and small companies are always my favorite because everyone is heard and it’s easier to meet everyone’s individual needs. I love that we work remotely so moving to Kansas City was no problem at all. I love that when I have ideas, I can voice them and see real change take place. I love that this is a real team, where everyone is listened to and appreciated!”– Tracey Jones
