First Day, Four Questions – Ian

Meet Ian Jones, eGroup’s New Senior Solutions Architect

Why eGroup?

As a former team member and leader at eGroup I am very familiar with the organization’s approach to both its customers and employees. Simply put, eGroup is a challenging and rewarding organization to be a part of. I am excited to be, again, solving complex technology problems for our clients.

What makes you a serious competitor?

I am a technologist at heart. I have spent time during my career working in everything from pure software development using technologies such as Java, C#, Angular, etc. to data science relying on SQL Server, MySQL, Greenplum and Hadoop, among others. Through eGroup, I have also had the pleasure of being exposed to many data center components such as enterprise storage systems, virtualization platforms and core network devices. When combined with my love of technology evangelism through experience such as speaking at VMworld and other conferences, I am absolutely a Serious Competitor.

If you weren’t in IT, what would you be doing?

If I did not work in Technology I would likely be involved in some sort of educational role as I love to teach new concepts to others.

What’s your headline?

Living Vicariously Through Myself

Welcome back to the team, Ian!
