Staff Profile - Ben

Wednesday, 5 April 2017


Ben Gittins, our Tech Team Lead and Systems Administrator, is celebrating his second anniversary at Xtreme, at the end of this month. In that time, Ben has grown to be an integral part of the IT team, being promoted to Team Lead last year.

As the leader of the technical team, Ben's day to day work involves project managing installs, assisting key accounts, ensuring the data centre is running smoothly and looking after the rest of the IT department. Ben has 6 years’ experience in the IT industry, working as a contractor for various companies including Education Queensland, prior to joining us here at Xtreme.

Ben specialises in Cyber and Network security, Linux System administration and DevOps. He is also currently extending his studies to gain his CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) and CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) certifications as well completing workshops for AWS SysOps Administrator.

A self-confessed "nerd", Ben likes to spend his free time working with embedded electronics, practising programming and reading. Sometimes however, his inner rock-star emerges, and he shreds it out on his guitar!
