Employee Spotlight - Meet Hamish
Updated: Nov 20
He's the newest member of Redman Solutions and already feels like part of the family. Meet Hamish Burnett - our problem-solving tech whiz who has traded life on the farm for the big city.
Tell us a little about you, where you're from and your family
I grew up as a country boy on a 500-acre lifestyle farm in Far North Queensland. I have 3 brothers, so you can imagine how fun (and sometimes crazy) our childhood was.
I moved to Brisbane to study Computer Science - Artificial Engineering at QUT. I’ve gone from being a very active farm kid to working in an office environment, so it’s been quite the adjustment.
You’re part of the IT team, tell us a little about your role.
I work in a great team and spend my day helping people who need assistance with any of our solutions. I also help with security checks and am always trying to figure out the best way to do things - I tend to wear a bunch of hats.
You seem to love helping people; is that what you love about your role?
I love problem-solving. When our clients need a solution, I enjoy figuring out what they need and how we can get there. There’s plenty of opportunities for this in my role, and I’m learning so much on the job.
Our workplace is also great - it’s so flexible and autonomous, and the culture suits me perfectly. We’re like a family here, and it’s pretty clear that we all enjoy coming to work.
Your Favourite Food/Movie/Travel Destination:
Food: You can’t beat a good crumbed steak with lemon. It needs to be medium rare and come with crispy roasted potatoes.
Movie: John Wick
Travel Destination: Austria - my family is originally from there, they have amazing ice caves and why not?
What do you get up to in your spare time?
Between uni and work, I don’t really have a lot of spare time, but when I have it, I love to cook and make cocktails.
I love shaking up a Sea Breeze and cooking up a nice steak - medium rare, obviously!
