My first mainframe job—
Client facing: Lead Integration Architect for mainframe data with other platforms using MQ Series.

My favorite mainframe attribute—

Being at a client's site and seeing an orange plastic gold fish circulating around the watercooling system every couple of minutes. But seriously, clients moving from 400-plus commodity servers to a single mainframe and saving U.S. $1.5 million on energy costs alone!
