Angus joined the Metricon family in 2014 as a Service Desk Analyst. Just two years later, he stepped up as our End User Computing Engineer, before becoming Senior End User Computing Engineer in 2019. Looking back, Angus is proud of how far he’s come. A key reason he chooses Metricon, he shares, is the outstanding career progression he’s experienced in a relatively short time.
“I started with Metricon after I graduated from uni and I’ve worked my way up through various roles – learning so much along the way. In each role, I’ve been exposed to a broad range of IT issues in terms of what I encounter in the day to day. I’ve heard that in some IT roles at other companies, you might only be able to work on one aspect of the system. But here, we’re not pigeon-holed.”
And his position today is no different, shares Angus. On paper, his role is to manage the systems involved in onboarding and recruitment - from setting up candidate accounts to installing new hardware across various departments. In reality however, this responsibility offers a host of diverse technical challenges - each a unique learning opportunity.
“There is always something to discover – it’s a great challenge. Most of the time it’s about learning on the fly; I’m constantly problem-solving. But I love the feeling of accomplishment when I get to the bottom of each issue.”
