Tell us about yourself and your role at Attivio!
My job title is IT help desk specialist. I’m the go-to person that everyone at Attivio contacts if something is broken with their IT services!
Did you always know you wanted to be on an IT team?
One of my hobbies is building computers and I’ve always been very interested in technology. For that reason, being on an IT team seemed like a natural fit. I’m able to work on something I love, and I’m also given the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and meet people at the company I wouldn’t normally meet.
What’s a typical workday like for you?
You can typically find me responding to tickets, onboarding and provisioning new people and generally fixing people’s problems. Lately, I’ve been helping a lot with the move to Boston too, making sure nothing breaks and everything goes smoothly.
As a recent college graduate, was there anything that surprised you about your first job out of college?Anything specific about Attivio?
I was surprised at how lighthearted everyone is! I expected to just come to work, be focused on doing my job and nothing else. Attivio makes working and learning new things so much fun! I have a small team, which I love because we’re closely connected and always willing to help each other out.
As you know, Attivio was recently voted one of the best places to work in Boston. What’s your favorite thing about working here?
My favorite thing would be the culture. Everyone is very welcoming, knowledgeable and open. People take the time to try and guide you as much as they can.
Attivio’s culture is fueled by a core set of values.Which of Attivio’s values resonates the most with you?
Win as a team. I’m a part of a team that makes sure our whole company functions as efficiently as they can.
What has been your favorite project you’ve worked on while at Attivio?
Seeing everything that goes into the move to Boston has been my favorite project. Setting up brand new infrastructure and building it from the ground up is a project not many IT people get to say they experienced.
What about the move to Boston are you most excited about?
I’m excited about the amount of good food that is around our office! I love anything spicy, Japanese Ramen and Chinese food are my favorite!
