Jacob Vargas is a Systems Engineer on the Professional Services team at Zumasys. With over a decade of experience in technical support, Jacob is a go-to IT infrastructure expert for Zumasys customers. In addition to helping customers design and implement value-added IT solutions for their businesses, Jacob is dedicated to the continual health and maintenance of those systems, making sure that they conform to best practices while offering recommendations for improvement. Jacob has a broad range of expertise that includes everything from managing Office 365 implementations to optimizing Citrix virtual applications and administering networks and storage systems.

Since joining the Zumasys team in 2013, Jacob has become a vital asset to Zumasys’ eight-person PS team, working closely with sales and pre-sales to guide customers on their journey to next-generation IT. He takes pride in helping his customers rest easy at night, knowing their IT systems will always be available, secure, and up-to-date.

When he’s not at work, Jacob loves spending time with his three sons and his wife. On weekends, you’ll find him propped up on the couch watching a football game or covered in bright-colored paint after a particularly intense paintball war with his boys.

How does what you do benefit customers? I worry about my customers’ IT needs so they don’t have to. One less hour spent managing infrastructure is one more hour they can spend growing their business.
