Jason is the latest Vapour colleague to step into the spotlight, and did you know, he nearly became an accountant rather than a cloud specialist?! In this quickfire Q&A he talks tech, trust and not taking himself too seriously…
How did you first get into the world of tech?
Many moons ago when I was training to be an accountant, I started to use PCs and learnt to program.
And what is your earliest memory of tech in your life?
A BBC Micro Model B at Primary School
What’s the one quality you need to thrive in this environment (especially at Vapour)?
I think you need a good work ethos, the ability to bounce off other members of staff and a commitment to building solid customer relationships. A great sense of humour helps too!
And what is the one thing you would change about the tech sector
There are a lot of businesses that sadly claim to be able to deliver something, when in reality they can’t.
Why do you think Vapour stands out in the channel?
We have a great close-knit team which gives us the ability to understand and deliver customer requirements efficiently and professionally. I think this in itself creates a crucial sense of trust and enhances our relationship with them.
Complete the sentences:
The best piece of tech ever invented is... the internet.
The next purchase on my (personal) tech wishlist is... nothing! I’ve just upgraded my iPhone, so I don’t plan to buy anything else at the moment.
A tech firm that has really stood out for me in the last 12 months is... VMware.
The biggest misconception in the channel is that... the space is crowded with organisations doing the same thing. I actually think there are too many players BUT not enough doers.
By the end of 2020, our tech will have made organisations far more... flexible in the workplace.
