Our latest squid spotlight shines on Product Support superstar, Chris Briere. As with many of our Squids, the path to a career within the digital arts industry began with a fascination for video games.

TurboSquid CEO Matt Wisdom recently discussed the difficulty that so many New Orleans firms are facing when trying to hire tech talent.
“Generally the growth (New Orleans) is having is not a surprise. We’ve been trying to have this problem for a long time. I’m glad we have it. Now we have to fix it, and now we have to fill all those jobs we helped create.”
New Orleans’ tech industry is growing rapidly. We’ve done our part as we continue to add to our staff every month, and we’re still trying to hire more (especially developers). With so much competition, we’ve been trying to highlight what it’s like to work for one of the city’s Best Places to Work.
