Our latest field profile features Stanley Henriquez, an Endpoint Engineer based in Philadelphia who is training for a Spartan Race and sleepless nights (he and his wife are expecting twins).
In 20 words or less, what do you do?
I configure, test, and troubleshoot FlexNet endpoints. I’m also the one responsible for ensuring the customer understands the different meters available on FlexNet and their functionality.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
The local people I work with are great. It’s made working consistently enjoyable.
What surprises people most when you tell them about your job?
Most people are surprised I cannot get them a discount on their utility bill.
What’s your favorite customer memory or field experience?
I visited customer premise to get data from a solar meter that was installed inside of a barn. I ended up being surrounded by a dozen chickens and different farm animals. That was my first live experience with chickens.
What has been the biggest change to your daily routine since the pandemic began?
Working at home while watching my 20 month year old daughter has been a huge change. Changing a diaper in the middle of a meeting is difficult.
What’s your favorite safety tip or work hack?
Make coworkers and/or management aware of your plans. They’ll usually remind you of any safety concerns you may have forgotten.
Finish this sentence: On a given day, you will find me…
…on YouTube learning a new cooking recipe. I love to experiment with food even though my cooking has a 50% chance of being edible!
If you weren’t in the utility industry, what would your dream job be?
I would be lawyer. I would’ve enjoyed the reading and the extra years in school.
