Employee Spotlight – Jeff Buskirk

January 25th, 2018

What’s your role at Simplex-IT and when were you hired?
I was brought into the Simplex-IT family as an Intern April 1st, 2013. Six months later I was added as a full-time member of the team. I am currently a Network and Systems Administrator working alongside the rest of my peers providing the best customer service possible to our clients.

What’s a typical day like for you at work?
Each day brings forth a new challenge, so typical days don’t really exist in our world. These new obstacles bring the team closer together, and together we prevail. If there was such a thing as a “typical day”, it would be taking on the small tasks like replacing “keyboard batteries” to larger ones like “Backup and Disaster Recovery”.

What has been your favorite project at Simplex-IT?
My favorite projects are the onboarding process. During this process we add new clients to our family. This gives me the opportunity to meet new, and exciting people. I really enjoy making their transition an inviting, and positive experience!

What did you do before Simplex-IT?
Prior to Simplex-IT, I worked as a Machinist for several years. After that I provided customer support as a field service technician repairing Sharp Multi-Function Printers. During which I’ve obtained two Associates Degrees in IT related curriculums (Computer Electronics Engineering and Information Systems Engineering).

What do you like to do outside of work?
I enjoy playing Massively Multi-Player Online games (MMOs), and then unplug by hitting the Great Outdoors. My current passion is Bass fishing in Ohio’s many lakes, and ponds. I try to fish a different lake every week throughout the season. This year I will be competing in the Bass tournament scene for the first time!
