< Back to Main Blog We:30 of the Week, Jordan! By Red Door on April 09, 2014 | Red Door Culture | Leave a comment We:30 is a weekly tradition here at Red Door Interactive, in which we take the time to celebrate and feature an employee who exemplifies our core values to inspire, share, evolve, exceed, and be 100% jerk-free. We:30 also gives us a chance to learn some interesting and fun facts about the featured employee! Meet Jordan Kasteler, Senior SEO Manager at Red Door. My strengths are Deliberative, Relator, Achiever, Responsibility, and Restorative. I find myself being very logical, methodical, and analytical in my approach to work and life, yet leveraging creativity and ingenuity to constantly achieve successes. Growing up, my entire life was skateboarding, punk rock/ska concerts, and computers. My first concert was Green Day when they released Nimrod. I still make these things a big part of my life even though I don’t find as much time for skateboarding or concerts any more. It also makes it hard when your friends grow up and don’t do it as much either Like Trung, my first web related experience was creating a skateboarding website where I learned HTML and Photoshop 3.0. I’ve been vegan for over 3 years and never looking back. Though, I still maintain a Standard American Diet and don’t eat as healthy as I should. Being vegan lead to me to various forms of activism (food industry, equal rights, animal welfare/rights, environmental) where I’ve rocked the boat locally. For my Master’s thesis project I wrote a book on social media marketing. From there I made and e-book and self-published it but is quite dated now. April 3rd (at time of writing), is the date my wife (Heather) and I started dating 10 years ago. We’ve been married 6 years in August. We don’t have kids but have two Maltese male dogs, Turk and MoeMoe. MoeMoe is a rescue who was put through some very extreme circumstances so we’ve been working on rehabilitating him over the past couple years. Turk, on the other hand, has never seen a rough day in his life. I love to read to learn, and have a lot of books, but despise reading fiction. If I’m not learning or developing myself professionally then I feel like I’m wasting my time. On that same note, I’m obsessed with documentaries via Netflix. But I have no qualms with turning off my brain and watching movies like Zoolander. As Sr. SEO Manager, I aim to provide expert consulting and service for clients to improve their rankings, traffic, and conversions from search engines. In addition, my goal is to help Red Door have an optimal SEO team and modern processes that blow any competition out of the water.
