Team Nortec Sept17

, Team Nortec Sept17Meet Hira Khan, Network Administrator for Nortec.  Read on to learn about Hira’s special role as an embedded network administrator for Nortec client, MacroGenics, and why Hira’s strengths lie not just in IT, but also in the gym.

Q: Tell us a little about your job.

A: I was in a help desk role for Nortec clients prior, so I got great experience helping with a variety of organizations and issues.  Now I’m working onsite at MacroGenics, supporting this client at their facility. They’re going through a migration of all users to Windows 10, so I’m supporting them in this and other efforts.

Q: Why is it advantageous to be onsite?

A: The physical proximity is very helpful, to be embedded in MacroGenics’ systems and culture, and since they’re growing quickly, there are no knowledge bases for this new migration.  I’m working alongside Macrogenics to put those in place. Face to face interaction makes everything a lot easier for both parties.

Q: Why should organizations consider an onsite resource?

A: It’s great for organizations experiencing growth, going through a large-scale initiative, upgrade or migration. An onsite resource could be beneficial especially if you’re looking to change processes that may be new to your organization’s culture.

Q: What would your co-workers be surprised to learn about you?

A:  I weight lift as a hobby.  I also love white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, and if I had a superpower, it would be teleportation so I wouldn’t get stuck in traffic.
