Michael Jones is back working with the Optimate family! He returned fresh in 2020 and we thought it would be a great idea to catch up for a chat now he has settled back in.
How did you come to be working at Optimate?
I was introduced to the Optimate team while working as a contractor for Origin Energy back in 2011. I was impressed by the company’s range of technical skills and the enthusiastic culture and joined the company that year.
I left Optimate mid last year to pursue a new opportunity but welcomed the opportunity to rejoin with the team this year. I’m a PI specialist and really enjoy working with clients to keep them updated, while providing high quality service.
What have you been working on during your first few weeks at Optimate?
Getting to know the team and clients again, opening new doors for training and upskilling. As well as working as a team on our key areas of who we are supporting in the business environment – both externally and internally.
What will you be working on for the next few weeks?
Collaborating on our PI System deployment to ensure we have the highest standards, client project support and internal development. I also heard rumour Naomi will be needing some help packing when we move to 480 Queen in a few short months.
Last question! What do you think the future is for this industry?
The future looks great. The amount of data industry generates is increasing rapidly and this data needs to be managed to obtain the maximum benefit from it.
