Congratulations to Josh Barks, Service Delivery Specialist, on being named Socket’s You-Make-The-Difference award winner for July!

After graduating from college, a teacher told Josh that Socket was hiring. A few weeks later, he landed the position. As a Service Delivery Specialist, Josh has to wear multiple hats. Sometimes he’s a problem-solver, other times he’s a self-proclaimed “Master of Google-fu.” Either way, he’s an intrical part of what makes Socket great. 

"Josh has been a great addition to our provisioning team,” said a coworker who nominated him.  “He works very hard to prepare services for our customers. Josh brought a wealth of knowledge with him gained in the Business Tech support. He does whatever he can for our customers and is always available to help his coworkers, even when he is at lunch.”

Josh’s family consists of his mom, sister, brother, and his cat, Orion (who Josh says is the biggest goof in the world). In his free time, he likes to read, write, and enjoy the trails around Columbia. 

“Really my favorite part of working here at Socket is that I am challenged everyday,” Josh said. “I am constantly having to push myself to learn new things, which is awesome. I love working with all the people here.”
