Welcome Stephen Burrows, who joins us in the role of PowerBI Developer.
It’s always exciting to learn new technologies and products, and working with Onboard Tracker™ provides fantastic opportunities to get involved with some cutting-edge tech. The strength and breadth of Onboard Tracker™ is very impressive, and I’m excited to really get to know the product, both from a technical side and how it supports our client’s business needs.
Stephen’s role is crucial to the progression of our technology at Solab and Onboard Tracker™.
Joining the Onboard Tracker™ PowerBI Team, Stephen helps empower our users to analyse, realise and visualise their data sets.
Two months in to his new role and one month in to a fabulously busy start to 2023 for the team, Stephen has taken a quick breather to tell us a little more about himself …
What’s your career background?
I’ve worked in the IT industry for the past 20 years (how did that happen!), most lately in IT Manager roles in Aberdeen and Edinburgh. My work experience has given me considerable exposure to a wide range of IT services and technologies in various sectors, including finance, oil & gas and government/public body and alongside traditional IT Manager responsibilities I’ve been lucky enough to be able to indulge my interests in data analysis and business intelligence.
When you were 5 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was 5, I remember clearly wanting to be an enigmatic helicopter pilot with a mysterious past (thanks Airwolf).
What is the most inspiring part of your job?
Providing solutions and business intelligence that solves real world problems, and making clients lives easier, is always rewarding. Power BI provides a fantastic platform for clients to gain real insights into their data.
What are you most looking forward to in your new role?
We have a terrific team here at Solab and Onboard Tracker™, with incredible experience, passion, and technical knowledge – working day to day with the team is an excellent way to learn. Every day’s a school day!
What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
Treat people as you’d want to be treated yourself…an oldie but a goodie.
Thank you Stephen for taking the time to chat with us and letting us dig a little deeper! We can’t wait to see the positive impacts you continue to bring to the team – and our product!
