Meet Team ONEBURRIS: Vlad Navitski
Vlad Navitski, Software Developer, I.T.
Everybody, meet our ONEBURRIS Team Member, Vlad! Vladzislau Navitski joined the Burris Logistics Family in 2011 as a warehouse selector in one of our warehouses and has held multiple positions within the company ever since! Currently, Vlad is a software developer in our I.T. department, where he has been since 2013.
Vlad moved from Belarus to the United States in 2011 with his wife and small child. While living in Belarus, he had been studying for his Ph.D., but after the move, he was searching for a temporary warehouse job to support his family. Within a month, he was hired at one of the Burris Logistics’ facilities in Connecticut.
This temporary position lasted only about a year before Vlad saw a job listing for a clerk position. Although he enjoyed the camaraderie of the warehouse, Vlad is a firm believer in continuous education and improvement and was ready for a change. So, with hopes of spending more time with his family and having more free time to pursue his other interests, he spent the following year working as a clerk in the same location.
Throughout that year, during his leisure time, Vlad decided to pursue his interest in web development and took free programming courses online. Soon after, he landed a Web Developer role at Burris Logistics H.Q. in Milford, Delaware. Vlad has remained in the Information Technology department ever since.
His desire for a temporary position turned into a lifelong career and second family, literally speaking! In 2019, his wife Jane also joined the Burris Logistics Family in Milford. Besides spending time in his Burris Logistics’ HQ home, Vlad loves spending time with his wife and kids traveling, road tripping, and playing board games. Vlad claims if you have never traveled to Massachusetts or played the game Photosynthesis, you are missing out!
We are so grateful to have inspiring Team Members like Vlad as an essential piece of the Burris Logistics Family and cannot wait to see the wonderful things he continues to accomplish!
