Julia Fayn, Procurement Manager

How long have you worked at S-NET?

I joined the team fairly recently – about 5 months ago. S-NET has grown so much in the last few years that managing circuit contracts and vendor relationships was becoming a challenge. So, I was brought on board to oversee all things procurement.

Where did you work before starting this job at S-NET?

I really wanted a career that would allow me to use my communication and business skills. Purchasing is a field that empowered me to do that. I had a variety of different roles in purchasing, working mostly in the Food and Manufacturing industries. I spent a chunk of my career at Lifeway Foods, where I grew a lot, and to this day I am using the experience and skills I gained there

What are your primary responsibilities at S-NET?

At S-NET, providing quality circuits at an affordable price and ensuring that clients are protected by advanced Service Level Agreements (SLAs) is critically important. I was brought on board to manage these vendor relationships and negotiate the most advantageous contracts for our customers. In the process, I am also streamlining purchasing to ensure that we are able to keep up with the increasing number of orders as our business grows.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

I like working with vendors and maintaining positive relationships. I also enjoy optimizing processes – nothing makes me happier than developing a workflow that saves time and is easier to manage.

I also love learning from my co-workers about cutting-edge technologies such as SD-WAN, Fiber Optic Connectivity, Internet Access and VoIP.

What aspects do you find challenging?

Keeping up with a fast-paced industry is definitely difficult. New products and services get released all the time and I need to make sure I stay on top of all these changes.

What have been your favorite S-NET projects so far?

We have recently migrated DS1 circuits to Fiber Optic Connectivity to improve reliability and speed for our customers and reduce price per bandwidth. It was a challenging project, but I really enjoyed being a part of it and I am proud of the outcome.

Being able to work in a high-tech environment allows me to learn a lot in a very short amount of time, and I can count on the team for help if I bump into any questions or issues.

What exciting projects are you most looking forward to?

I am looking forward to launching new services, like Wireless Broadband and 5G Wireless Networking.

How do you unwind after a long day at the office?

I like to spend quality time with my family. During weekends and days off, I love to travel, skate, walk my dog, go to the movies, read a book, and do everything I can to live my life to the fullest.
