A Day in the Life of a Senior Systems Engineer
Most employees of Jovian Concepts work at customer locations, adjusting their hours, parking habits, and daily routines to the needs and work culture of their customers.
Meet a Senior Systems Engineer who models the hallmark of every Jovian Concepts employee-- Down to Earth, Up to the Challenge-- balancing dedication to the customer with a rewarding life outside of work. In his own words, see what a typical day is like:
4:00 a.m. Rise n’shine, sunshine, even though most days I am up before the sun. Shower, coffee, make breakfast and lunch. Coffee… coffee…
4:45 a.m. Let “Fang” out, the cat.
5:45 a.m. As long as I am at work before 7 a.m., there are lots of parking spots CLOSE to my work building.
6:00 a.m. After checking in my building, I head to the basement. 'Good mornings' to everyone already in. For the next 20 minutes, I am logging into all the different areas that are in my purview.
6:45 a.m. Breakfast opens up, so I eat my food that I brought in.
7:00 a.m. Read through all emails. ID what needs action and what can be moved to folders, and what is trash into another folder.
12:00 p.m. I eat the food I brought, usually at my desk. We all eat at our desks, most times. Unless we are having a brown-bag learning session somewhere within the building.
1:00 p.m. By this time, I have had 20 customers come to my desk. That is not supposed to impact my work requirements. Right? Right!! All part of a day of peeps needing help and they know who has helped in the past. So, it... by proxy!
2:00 p.m. Try to find a stopping point so that I can be out after eight hours. Not usually the case.
2:30 p.m. A typical after-work activity for me is coaching high school sports. I coach outside sports, so the players are to be out on the field and ready by 2:45. When I am not in coaching season, I am gardening. If I am cooking, it will be on the grill. Including the veggies.
7:00 p.m. Home by now, during sports season.
9:00 p.m. Dead tired, ready to rest and do it all over again tomorrow. Cheers!!
