Our Techie Tuesday series highlights a member of Onix’s technical team, who shares their insights and tips for working in the industry. 

In each post, you’ll get a behind the scenes look into what it’s like to work and succeed at a technology company. You’ll also get a glimpse into how they spend their time when they are not working. 

This week, Scott Cruze, Director of Cloud Professional Services, joins us. Scott is a newer addition to our team and we’re thrilled to introduce him to you.

What is Your Role at Onix? 

I manage and lead our cloud platform consulting practice. This means I am responsible for multiple teams that work directly with our clients. As the Director of Cloud Professional Services, this includes providing oversight and guidance to our consulting team members, practice development and pre-sales support. 

We are growing and I get to shape how this will benefit our clients. 

What Makes You Excited to Come to Work Each Day?

What initially drew me to Onix is also what motivates me every day. We have a rare combination of great opportunities and a world-class culture that stands out in this industry. I am eager to come to work and be a part of building a cloud professional services organization with such high level professionals. 

We are in a growth market — and with success only a few drops of sweat away — this motivates me to wake up each morning with a smile on my face and happy to come to work. 

Tell Us About Your Favorite Project.

Recently, I had the opportunity to help out on a project we did with Penn State. We were tasked to find a solution that would recommend social opportunities to students, such as campus clubs, community service, etc. Our Onix consultants created an architecture to gather student data from various sources, consolidate it and use AI/ML to provide suggestions tailored to each student’s interests. 

Using technology to solve real world problems that impact people’s everyday lives is what inspires me.
