Spotlight: Emin Margosian, Project Manager
What does your job entail?
My typical day involves communicating with and understanding the needs of our clients, working with my team to meet the set goals successfully while also managing deadlines for tasks. Additionally, as the Systems Network Administrator, I ensure that all the technology used in the company runs smoothly and I troubleshoot any technology issues that arise.
What originally attracted you to NeuronicWorks?
Having just finished my Engineering Degree at Ryerson University, I was highly motivated to find a job in a field that I was passionate about. A friend described NeuronicWorks’ expertise in custom electronics, and I was very intrigued. I wanted to work in a company where I would be able to be a part of the product development cycle from start to finish. Additionally, while learning more about the company through the interview process, I was pleased to hear about how well everyone seemed to work together--like a family. I knew right away I wanted to be part of this small and epic team that innovates and creates beyond clients expectations.
What do you think is the most essential skill required to succeed as a project manager?
Effective communication skills set the foundation for good project management. I believe communicating expectations and encouraging open dialogue amongst the team, and efficiently communicating with the clients are all pivotal contributors to success.
How has your professional development progressed since joining NeuronicWorks?
Since joining NeuronicWorks, I have grown both as a professional and as a project manager. The fast-paced environment of NeuronicWorks has pushed me to thrive under pressure, think outside the box, and effectively manage several different projects at the same time. Furthermore, the opportunities I’ve had within the realm of project management have helped me refine my ability to delegate tasks to my team members, and enhanced my customer service skills to provide exceptional client experiences.
What are 3 words you would use to describe NeuronicWorks?
The 3 words I would use to describe NeuronicWorks are family, tenacity, and distinction. Most importantly, NeuronicWorks truly feels like a family--we all value each other’s input, and genuinely enjoy working together to reach our goals. ‘Tenacity’ is another word that comes to mind, as NeuronicWorks is always determined to reach beyond what the client expects. Finally, ‘distinction’ describes NeuronicWorks as it stands out from its competitors as a company with a lot of heart and passion, ready to take on any project that comes its way.
I love to work on cars, and specifically enjoy repairing and rebuilding salvage cars. Through the process of working on different types of cars, I’ve become familiar with various car repair techniques, and have refined my problem-solving skills. I am also a technology fanatic and like to use different gadgets around the house to improve user experiences.
My guilty pleasure is binge-watching YouTube videos on how to fix and build things, and best of all, destroy things. It fascinates me to know how things are made and how they work. These videos motivate me to implement DIY projects around the house.
Funniest Experience Working at NeuronicWorks
I have experienced so many great memories at NeuronicWorks so far. The funniest experience that comes to mind was the time me and Jason were tasked with fitting doors in the newly acquired 407 rooms of the (now old) office. We worked away for hours with laser focus, shaving off wood to make the perfect fit. Once finished, we were very excited to show everyone how great the new doors looked. We packed up, and turned to close the door, only to realize that the newly installed door was nearly 8 inches too short for the doorway. We just looked at each other and burst out in laughter for what seemed like forever. Even as we corrected the issue, we would occasionally stop, and laugh at how ridiculous the situation was.
What has been your proudest moment at the company?
One of the proudest moments I have had in this company has been when I managed a team that successfully created our first official product (NW-4G LTE modem) that is used in public transit of various municipalities in Ontario. I could not have been prouder to be a part of a team who worked so efficiently and tirelessly to make sure our clients were fully satisfied with our product.
What is your favorite part about working at NeuronicWorks?
My favorite part of working at NeuronicWorks, other than working alongside exceptional people, is how each day is unpredictable, and full of opportunity. The management of the company has instilled a can-do attitude into all of us, which motivates us to welcome new challenges and find creative solutions.
