Spartan Spark News

Here's another edition of our team feature.

This month we'd like to introduce you to Cassian Soltykevych, one of our top team players at Spartan Spark


Cassian Soltykevych

Tell us something about yourself. Brag a little!

I've travelled to over 40 countries and I can't imagine not travelling. I also really like to read, hike, and ski.

What do you do at Spartan Spark?

I take care of whatever needs to get done. I'm usually answering technical questions, or fixing something that broke, or helping out a customer with a request they have.

Tell us about a project you enjoyed working on.

DFM Cleaning - it was a tight turnaround, with all hands on deck, but we got a great site up for the customer really quickly.

Think of someone you love. What's your favourite thing about him or her?

They enjoy long discussions about a variety of topics.

Name a role model who best exemplifies integrity?

Chrystia Freeland

Let's have some fun. What makes you laugh?

A good comedian whose jokes make you think before you laugh.

Which fictional character do you wish you could meet?

Stephen Colbert from The Colbert Report.

Let's talk about hobbies. When you're not working, what do you do for fun?

Usually I'm doing something active: skiing, biking, hiking, playing volleyball. If it's a bad day of weather, then I'm usually reading.

Tell us an example of how you've supported the community. Pro bono work or volunteer, etc.

I'm active in my cultural community and work with community advocacy groups and community media outlets.

It's innovation time! Tell us of a time you did something unique to solve a problem

Usually you have to be pretty innovative when it comes to dealing with Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. So, when there's an issue with an account, I usually just try to block an hour to getting it fixed because it's really frustrating to deal with. If you let it stretch out over a few days, you'll be really burnt out and hate social media platforms.

If we took your coffee or tea order, what would it be?

Genmaicha tea

Which is your favourite place to travel and/or your best travel memory?

Japan to ski

If Spartan Spark could land your dream client who would that be?

Manufacturing company

What cool thing would you do for them?

Make them the leader in their industry from a marketing and online presence standpoint. Most manufacturing/industrial companies have a very poor online presence and/or an outdated website.
