I joined MediaTrack way back December 2011 as an IT Plotter for 2 months and moved to being an IT Admin for 4months. As the company grew and expanded, I eventually became part of the technical team as a Network Administrator.
Name & Title
I’m Cyril Cesar Estremera or “Cy” and I’m MediaTrack’s Chief Technical Officer.
When have you joined MT and what is your current role?
I joined MediaTrack in 2012 as the Head of IT. My responsibilities as Head of IT were similar to what I do now as the Chief Technical Officer (CTO), in that I ensure that the system of MediaTrack is stable and secure at all times.
Describe your average day at Media Track?
My average day at MediaTrack involves a lot of meetings and communicating with people. I speak with the Development Team about project/work priorities and updates on the progress of their respective tasks – what they have finished and what they are currently working on – so that I could assign new tasks or re-assign unfinished ones as needed. I meet regularly with the System and Network Team to maintain the normal operation of the whole system. I make it a point to include other departments in order to check in with them and see if there is anything I can facilitate in order to improve the system process. I also always allocate some of my time for exploring and researching new technologies to further improve the whole system process, including development and maintenance. And that is how my average day goes… Education and Experience I am a Computer Engineering graduate from the University of Sto. Tomas Legazpi. Before I graduated, I was already working as a part-time Computer and Network Technician and I was also a trainee Web Programmer in another company. When I finished college, I started working as a Software Engineer and a System and Network Administrator. I’ve been in the industry for 15 years, including the time spent working during my academic years.
I know it’s been a good day when…?
When my list of important tasks have been completed, that’s when I can say it’s been a good day.
