2011 - Present
I'm Jared Faulkner, and I lead a team that sources, implements and supports technology solutions for construction, engineering and allied firms.
By integrating the best technology from emerging leaders and/or industry stalwarts, I deliver bespoke solutions to business challenges. Tech that figures prominently in my daily practice include desktop, application and server virtualization; traditional and hyperconverged datacenters; cloud computing; ERP; database and business intelligence; mobility solutions; converged communications; security and threat management...the list goes on.
Technology is a team sport. As a part of my work, I direct and supervise an excellent staff. I develop project timelines and resource requirements, take part in technical interviews for new employees, develop and approve documentation, oversee vendor relationships, authorize and approve technology and telecom-related expenses, cultivate opportunities for staff development, and manage help desk escalations. I also prepare for the inevitable zombie apocalypse with focused business continuity planning.
