Rediscovering Your Passion

Before coming at Buffalo Exchange, Tristan had long been working in the insurance industry.  The job paid well and it was a good, solid career path, but deep down, he knew he needed a change.  He still wanted to program adventure games and recreate Space Invaders like he did when he was 12 years old.  In his heart, he knew he had to get back to IT and put his degree in Computer Science to work.

Working at Buffalo Exchange

That’s when he noticed a job listing at Buffalo Exchange. “Don’t want to work in a stuffy corporate environment?” the listing inquired. No, he didn’t! When he landed the job, he felt comfortable immediately – like he’d found his second home.

After starting as an IT Assistant in 2014, Tristan’s supervisors noticed his programming skills and started giving him opportunities to utilize his Computer Science experience.  He was promoted in 2015. Then, less than a year later, he was promoted again to Programmer/Developer.

Feeling at Home

Tristan feels at home at Buffalo Exchange because of the people and the culture of the company. When he switched jobs, he was impressed to find that the supervisors at Buffalo Exchange are concerned with the well-being of each employee, even those at entry levels. “They take you under their wing, expanding your skills and preparing you for the future,” says Tristan. “They are very good at finding where someone fits and giving them opportunities to really own that position.”

The IT Department at Buffalo Exchange encourages its staff to seek ongoing certifications and to pursue professional development opportunities. Department heads also work with employees to set goals for additional job responsibilities they’d like to take on and discuss career aspirations. Hello, dream job!
