Thanks for being part of the People Thrust’s family, we are grateful for you!
We want to connect with you…we miss all of you and also want to get to know the new family members. For that reason, you will receive an extra $10 USD (~$220 MXN) in your next paycheck. We would like for you to use this money to buy yourself a drink, meal, snack of your choice, or even props, so you can share it with us at the next virtual happy hour. Pets and children are welcome to join in too…the more the merrier!
While it’s not a requirement to be part of the next happy hour, we encourage you to be part of it and have some fun with it! In the next few days, look for an email from Natalia (firstname.lastname@example.org) letting you know the date and time of the next happy hour.

People Thrust values the talent of our collaborators. We believe in continually developing and growing as individuals and professionals. What better way to promote our talented and amazing collaborators, than to feature someone new every month! This will give you the opportunity to learn about them, connect in ways you maybe didn’t know you shared similarities, and build relationships within our team beyond just our jobs! Since we like “catchy” names, we decided to call this spotlight MEM – Man Empowerment Monday and WEW – Women Empowerment Wednesday. Basically, every month, our Director of Culture will interview one man or woman within People Thrust and share their story in our newsletter.
This month we are featuring Tony as our MEM for the month of August!
Jose Antonio Isas (Tony or Toño)
System Engineer, Python Developer
I have been working with People Thrust since August 2019.
I would be a Tesla because it is a car with advanced technology such as artificial intelligence.
I like to play video games and rock climbing.
I like to celebrate Christmas with my family and on New Year’s Eve, we have a ritual of walking outside with our suitcases. The reasoning behind this is because it is supposed to bring good luck and trips for the new year.
I would like to have dinner with Elon Musk, he is someone I’m intrigued about because of all the things he has created.
What motivates me to wake up every day is knowing I’m making advancements at work and in my personal life.
When I finished a nine-month course about autonomous cars.
I meditate or practice yoga such as vinyasa and ashtanga.
I recycle and a group of us, rock climbers, go to communities that are in need, and give blankets during wintertime.
I learned how to juggle in high school.
– Christian Garnica “What I love about Latin American culture is that we are loving, our food (my favorite is tacos al pastor), different places in Mexico such as the pyramids, Peña de Bernal, located in San Sebastián Bernal, a small town in the Mexican state of Querétaro and “Danza de Los Voladores (Rito de Los Voladores).
What do you enjoy the most about your career?
Did you know that People Thrust sponsors Angel’s high school education? Last December we had a team bonding experience where we built a house for a family in need. Now we sponsor their oldest’s son education. Angel is getting ready to go back to school. Thanks to his scholarship he can now use a computer to attend school virtually.
