In the journey of AWS Cloud
Henry Hynynen is working at his first IT job. He works to bring the best possible AWS solution to the customer.
How would you describe a typical expert on Amazon Web Services? The beauty of the question is that there’s no right answer. Projects with AWS brings together people with various backgrounds and diverse work experience, and everyone gets to bring their talent to the table.
Cybercom’s own cloud pro Henry Hynynen reveal how he masters AWS.
What’s your work history like?
Cybercom is my first workplace in IT. Before I got the job, I worked for years in different gas stations’ customer service. I was hired to Cybercom in 2014 while I was studying communication systems and networks in Tampere University of Technology.
How did you find Cybercom?
Henry: I had a lot of friends who worked in Cybercom while studying. One of them recommended me for a job in service desk. I worked there for two years. It was a great job for a student, because we worked in three shifts. After I graduated, I was quickly promoted and began to work with customer projects. Currently my title is System Specialist, but I also work a lot with cloud architecture.
How has your previous experience helped you with your current position?
Working in gas stations and student organizations gave me good people skills. It’s important for a consultant.
What is your biggest strength when it comes to AWS?
It’s to understand AWS in wider perspective. You can always check details from manuals, but it’s important to know how many different services and features AWS has. I’m also one of the few people in Finland who’s specialized in video streaming using AWS and other technologies.
How has Cybercom supported your professional growth?
I’ve learnt everything in Cybercom. I knew some programming languages and mechanisms of data security, but I didn’t have any courses of cloud technology in the university. I think that my age is my benefit: I’m so young that I haven’t gotten stuck on old practices. I hopped on the cloud service train right away.
Cybercom supports professional development and pays for courses. It’s everyone’s own responsibility to take the time. I usually study intensively between customers. But every project is like a unique butterfly that needs special kind of AWS technology. That requires constant learning.
