Shabaz Darr

Meet our Leeds based Senior Infrastructure Consultant, Shabaz Darr. Here he shares why he chose to join Netcompany, his personal development journey and what his role at Netcompany entails.

What does your current role at Netcompany entail? 

As a Senior Infrastructure Consultant at Netcompany, I take part in both pre-sales activities and technical project delivery. At the moment, a typical day for me involves working with the UK bid team to complete project tenders, as well as speaking to various UK clients about Azure Virtual Desktop and running demonstration presentations to showcase the full feature set.

 

Why did you choose to join Netcompany?

I chose to join Netcompany because I wanted to take the next step in my career with a view to expand my technical skills and work with larger enterprise clients. Since joining in October 2020, working here has exceeded all expectations, especially the way the team continuously push you to develop professionally whilst providing the required support where necessary.

Also, the culture at Netcompany is something I have never experienced previously in my 15 years working in IT. Not only is the shared goal of everybody in the team striving to provide great solutions and service for our clients really refreshing, but the After Dark activities are fantastic – I really like the way Netcompany gives back to its employees, and the way we celebrate our success together.

 

How have you experienced your own personal and professional development at Netcompany?

I have developed exponentially and I believe this is because I am surrounded by other technical and experienced colleagues who are very open and approachable.  This has enabled me to learn directly from them and from their experience working in the enterprise environment. Whilst I still feel like I have a lot to learn, I feel like Netcompany is still the best place for me to achieve my goals.

 

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my beautiful family. I am fortunate enough to have a wife and two children, Zoya who is 10 and Mikaeel who is 6. As well as family time, I enjoy creating technical cloud content for my peers in Netcompany and I publish this on my personal YouTube channel as well.
