Channel Mechanics delights today in announcing the promotion of Sean Treacy to the position of Technical Architect – Squad Lead.
In January 2021, Channel Mechanics appointed Sean Treacy to the role of Sr. Software Developer in our EMEA HQ, having previously spent three years contracting for Channel Mechanics through Storm Technology. Sean initially joined as one of three developers, and has since played a pivotal role in the growth of the team, which now stands at 15+ developers delivering high-quality software to the channel.
Following this, Sean was recently promoted to the position of Technical Architect Squad Lead in May of 2023. This role will see him assume a leadership role, overseeing future projects and sharing his experience and knowledge with the ever-expanding development team.
Speaking about his promotion to Technical Architect – Squad Lead:
“I have been very lucky to have had great leadership figures within Channel Mechanics to progress my career, and to have been given the opportunity and responsibilities to do so. The experience and level of confidence I have built here have enabled me to progress into my new role which I welcome with great enthusiasm. The growth I have seen here has been undoubtedly remarkable. I am really looking forward to stepping into this role to see continued growth and prosperity within Channel Mechanics”.
A native of Galway, Sean graduated from NUIG with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science. Upon graduating, Sean took up a position with Storm Technology, a leading Irish Business Technology Consultancy, as a software engineer. This exciting role provided the opportunity to work on projects with a number of companies, including Avaya, the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. Notably, it is also where he was first introduced to Channel Mechanics. Sean has also previously worked in Planet, gaining invaluable experience and knowledge on Microsoft .Net stack.
Outside of work, Sean likes to keep fit by staying active. Indeed, a must for someone spending over 8 hours each day sitting and working at their desk. He recently embraced a new passion; that of horticulture, trying his hand at growing his own vegetables. This included onions, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes and chilies, something he is keen to expand upon this year.
When not in the garden, you might find him in the kitchen as he likes to cook. In fact, he is a keen baker and learned how to make bread from scratch during the first lockdown. In his previous company, he even won a charity Bake Off competition. Something he is very proud of, and something we, in Channel Mechanics, always look forward to. He also has a keen interest in all aspects of engineering/science, both new and old, along with building projects and dabbling with old retro tech.
Speaking about Channel Mechanics, Sean commented:
“Channel Mechanics is the kind of company where you have a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. I am continuously learning and facing new challenges. The team is very welcoming and there is great knowledge and experience in the team across different generations. It is great to see the company going from strength to strength and I am glad to be a part of the journey”.
