This week's Staff Spotlight is on Elia Spyratos, Junior Dev Ops Engineer!

Describe BT in 3 words:

Uplifting, Tenacious, and Deliberate.


What have you been working on lately?

I mainly connect through the DevOps team, and have previously worked to assist the ISBE and MSAA teams.


What is your definition of success?

My definition of success is to be able to confidently look around and be proud of what you have accomplished, and who you have connected with.


What motivates you?

The intrigue of expanding my skillset while also being able to engage with likeminded individuals at BT motivates me when I work.


Describe your personality using 3 hashtags:


Who would you select as a mentor if you could choose anybody, and why?

I would choose Walt Disney, because being able to create so much joy for so many people should be something that we all strive for.


What advice would you provide to someone interested in your field?

The world of tech is ever changing, and you really do not know where you will end up. Always keep an open mind, and never stop learning and engaging because the industry is in a constant march.


What skill do you think everyone should learn?

Everyone should learn to play an instrument. The world would sound better.


What are you most proud of in your career so far, or what BT projects are you most proud of and why?

Some of the daily/nightly reports I created for BT I am proud of. To see those running every day and to know that I created those which are used every day by BT is pretty cool.


What piece of advice would you give to your younger self?

Learn to live a little. Take the time to enjoy the now rather than constantly investing in the future.


What’s one thing on your bucket list?

One thing on my bucket list is to go to space.


Do you have a favorite quote?

“Happiness is only real when shared” -Christopher McCandless


What is your favorite hobby?

Favorite hobby is playing video games with friends.


What, if anything, are you currently binge-watching or reading?

Currently watching Succession, on HBO.


Where is your happy place in Chicago (or where you live)?

My happy place is in my backyard, sitting around the fire pit.
