Pete Smith,  SharePoint Engineer

“Working at DocPoint can be challenging at times, but that’s what I like about my job. I tend to thrive in stressful situations,” said Pete Smith, a SharePoint engineer for DocPoint Solutions. “Plus, I get to experience a broad range of technology on a daily basis.”

Originally a QAI employee for four years (first as a systems integrator/imaging technician and then as a systems administrator), Pete’s knack for taking on challenges led him to shift gears and join DocPoint as a SharePoint engineer in November of 2012. Despite his extensive experience in IT from his time at QAI and as a Microsoft
IT Academy student, Pete had to learn a new set of skills and become certified in SharePoint in order to assume his new position. Today, Pete is successfully designing, installing and supporting custom-tailored, complex SharePoint deployments for a broad range of DocPoint clients. He especially likes to work with federal customers, but cites the variety of clientele as another perk of the job.

“Every contract is different—another reason I enjoy working here,” Pete said. Recently, Pete completed one of his most unique deployments, building an integrated SharePoint and CRM system to help revamp a client’s entire presales process.

In his spare time, Pete enjoys martial arts and working on cars—a hobby that fittingly requires a problem-solving mindset similar to that of an IT professional. “I’ve spend the last two years bringing an old Acura Integra  back to life,” he added.
