5 Minutes With... Marcus Logan

9th Nov 2018 Joanna Cockle


Returning Xpander Marcus Logan previously spent over 3 years at Xpand Melbourne. So what brought him back to the family?

What’s your current role and what does it involve? 

My current role is Senior Consultant – Devops and Cloud Infrastructure. I specialise in placing technical candidates into either DevOps orInfrastructuree roles. 

What brought you back to Xpand?

I left Xpand two and a half years ago to join a digital consultancy that focused on DevOps and Development. That company was sold and I then joined Amazon Web Services to recruit senior cloud practitioners with AWS skills. I rejoined Xpand as I was aware that the DevOps desk had come available and as this is my sweet spot and combined with my contacts established with Amazon I thought it was a good time to make the best of it. Xpand is a great company and I stayed in touch with the guys as they are friends as well as colleagues. 

What do you enjoy the most about your role? 

I enjoy learning about new technology, meeting new people and finding out what makes people and companies tick. Oh and a commission check isn’t a bad thing either. 

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about helping companies and candidates get the most out of each other. I enjoy the sense that I am adding value to both sides!

Tell me something funny about your career?

I found it amusing being BD’ed by the Xpand crew when I was working onsite at Odecee. Fun Times!

When you were growing-up, what did you want to be?

Astronaut / Fighter Pilot. 

If you could be anywhere else in world, where would you be and why? 

Probably sitting on a boat somewhere nice and sunny with a wine.

Tell me a goal (professional or personal) you want to achieve next year?

I want to make it to Club 19!
