Employee Spotlight: Jamaal Blackwell

Jamaal grew up in Northwest Washington D.C and has lived there for the last 26 years of his life. After graduating high school, he attended Virginia State University and graduated in 2014 with a degree in mass communications.

Once he finished his time with higher education, Jamaal chose to stay in the place that he has known his whole life and begin working. He had multiple operations positions before starting at Amify. Paige, our corporate recruiter, reached out to him on LinkedIn for an opening in our warehouse. She had seen his experience in the operations role and knew he would be a great asset to Amify. Jamaal said, “It was actually perfect timing too, I was looking for a new challenge!”. He enjoyed working at his previous job but was intrigued by the fun and vibrant workplace that he saw at Amify. Today, he is working in our Alexandria, VA warehouse as an Operations Associate.

When asked what his favorite part of the job is he said, “The environment, for sure. It’s good vibes, always good vibes. Actually, I don’t think there’s ever been a bad day! The people too, everyone is really great and I really like them”. Jamaal aspires to work with Linux Systems and enjoys the opportunities Amify affords him in his career development!
