Team Spotlight - Sam Goff

April 25, 2022

Today, meet Sam Goff, Nlets’ System Administrator. He has been with Nlets for 18 months and shared his favorite part of working at Nlets (and so much more). 

Q. What are the Primary Responsibilities of Your Role? 

A. In my role, there is no such thing as a typical day: every day is different! Oftentimes, I work with Microsoft Configuration Manager to distribute and install programs and windows updates to servers and manage servers. I also work with Active Directory to update the permissions for users and servers. Then there is always the random task that needs to be done in Office 365. 

Q. What is Your Favorite Part About Working at Nlets? Why? 

A. My favorite part about working at Nlets is how employees are treated as valuable assets. I have seen this both from the willingness from management to invest in and train employees and the recognition hard work is given from inside my own department and other departments. Being part of a team where contributions and efforts are recognized is very encouraging and rewarding. 

Q. When You Are Not at Work, What Do You Like to Do? Hobbies? Secret Talents? 

A. Children are a part of almost every minute of my day! My wife and I have 6 kids ages 8 and under. Our youngest three are medically and developmentally complex, so they keep me busy when I’m not working. In my free time, I like to build things like a playhouse or setup computers with my kids. 

Q. Why Did You Initially Choose to Work at Nlets? How Did You Hear About It and What Has Kept You Here? 

A. After I was laid off from my last position due to Covid, I was looking on LinkedIn for work opportunities and came across a job posting from Nlets. I thought it would be an exciting opportunity to both learn new technologies and apply skills I already had to serve an important cause. Since then, I have enjoyed the work and have been very impressed with how well Nlets treats its employees. They don’t just say they care; they follow that up with action!
