Gabor’s Story

I feel that I create something useful while having fun, gain new experiences and this feeling is awesome. When you put stuff together and you see that its works! Even if it doesn’t work, when you look back later remembering the mistakes (and the water everywhere), the wasted parts died in smoke and sparks (no plants hurt!) it’s like a small adventure.

Read the full interview here

When did you started working at Atos and how was your first day here?
I joined Atos more than 2 years, on the first day I felt like I’m a stranger but everyone was friendly and helpful so at the kitchen it changed very quickly.

Is it your first job in IT? What did you do before?
It’s not my first IT job, I have been working in IT since 6 and a half years. Before ATOS I was working on various systems like HR, recruitment, global data synchronization, code generators.
I was mainly working on the back-end and sometimes on the front-end.

What do you like to do after or before work?
Before work I go to swim, and after work I really like to do something creative like playing guitar, gaming or working on my hobby project.

Please describe it.

My hobby project is about a little smart garden (with mainly chili), the goal is to make the watering automated as a first milestone. The next step is the artificial light and way later to tell the police it’s totally legal. At the moment I collect information regarding the moisture, temperature of the plants and the watering part.

How and when it started?
It’s started with the idea of “why not create something useful?” and then I was like, there is a lot of sensor on eBay and Aliexpress, I have a plant, I have developer background, lets connect these and see what happens… it sounded fun so I started to create my project.

How do you feel with that, what does it give you?
I feel that I create something useful while having fun, gain new experiences and this feeling is awesome.
When you put stuff together and you see that its works!
Even if it doesn’t work, when you look back later remembering the mistakes (and the water everywhere), the wasted parts died in smoke and sparks (no plants hurt!) it’s like a small adventure.

Bernadett’s Story

My advice would be to embrace all the upcoming  challenges and opportunities.  A developer has to be ready for self-development, because the technologies are in a continuous change as well. So bring your positivity and your smile and get started with your own journey.

When did you started working at Atos and how was your first day here? 

I have started working at Atos one year ago, in the 1st of June, 2017.I can remember that day very well. I came here with lots of questions in my mind, being my first job here, in Budapest.

The day was a usual “first day at work”: full of welcome meetings, introductions and trainings, but the fact that everybody was friendly and helpful made me feel familiar quickly.

Is it your first job in IT? What did you do before?

I don’t have any experience in other fields, I have graduated in Computer Science 3 years ago. Before working here, I finished 2 internships, the second one being followed by a job offer which I was content to accept. I believe that any kind of experience , even if it’s a short term one, can mean a significant step in building up a career, it only depends on your attitude.

What is challenging in your work? What are your professional duties?

What’s challenging and in the same time satisfying in all of these? I would say the fact that my ideas and my opinion matters for the team and for the client as well.

How did you start your tech career – what experiences led you to technology as a career?

First it came as a challenge for myself. I was always a fan of real sciences, math, electronics and everything related, so choosing Computer Science at the University was the most interesting subject I could study, which put together everything I like.

This was happening 7 years ago, when the internships and the software companies were not something easy to find, especially in the small town I am coming from. Honestly I couldn’t imagine what I am getting into, but it seemed challenging enough to worth giving a try.

What advice would you have for a young girl looking to grow their career in technology?

I feel that this question fits me well, because 3 years ago I was a young girl in the same situation. My advice would be to embrace all the upcoming challenges and opportunities.  A developer has to be ready for self-development, because the technologies are in a continuous change as well.

So bring your positivity and your smile and get started with your own journey.

What do you think about women’s situation in the IT market?

It is nice to see more and more women building up a career in IT.

I am happy that people gave up this preconception that IT is a men’s world. It is a world of curiosity, research, patience, focus and hard work and it is not gender defined anymore. Women started to encourage each other’s on becoming a developer by talking to the young generation about the beauty of this domain, organizing conferences and telling their story.

What is the most interesting aspect of this job for you?

I really like that I can be part of each step of the development, and it never gets boring because you have the opportunity to “level up”, which brings new challenges.

What are the advantages of working at Atos? How would you describe Atos Consulting Hungary, would you recommend it to a friend?

I find Atos a place where I can grow from both social and technical point of view. In the past year, I had the opportunity to attend multiple presentations and I worked on different projects, so in retrospective I feel that I learned a lot.

Also, we have co-workers from different parts of the world, so I can have partners for interesting conversations anytime during the short breaks or the after-work activities.

These are some of the benefits Atos offers and this are the reasons why I would recommend it to a friend.

Peter’s Story

I really like seeing the depths of things. In my opinion it is not enough to know how something works on the surface. This belief gives me a hard time sometimes, but most of the time it pays off. Seeing behind the scenes gives you an understanding that is necessary to reach certain heights – and I believe this applies to most part of life, maybe for all.

Read the full interview here

When did you start working at Atos and how was your first day here?

I started not so long ago, on the 6th of November, 2017. My first day was not so special, new place full of new faces and a lot of things to do – quite average. Since then, I built new friendships, I know my place, my duty and still have a lot of things to do, which is good. As I am not on a project currently, I need to attend on different trainings which I really enjoy.

Is it your first job in IT? What did you do before?

My first IT job was in Nyíregyháza, where I was at the Global Service Desk in the LEGO factory. Quite an experience as I wanted to work for LEGO when I was a child. Moreover this part of my life has a strong connection with my “hobby”. I moved there – from Győr – because I wanted to work with the best coach in Hungary. I managed to do this for almost 2 years, when I moved back to Budapest and started working at another software company.

What is challenging in your work?

I really like seeing the depths of things. In my opinion it is not enough to know how something works on the surface. This belief gives me a hard time sometimes, but most of the time it pays off. Seeing behind the scenes gives you an understanding that is necessary to reach certain heights – and I believe this applies to most part of life, maybe for all.

Moreover, to be able to create something, you need to understand a lot of things. One of my dreams is to create an online game. To achieve this, I need to write the game of course, implement network communication, I have to deal with data storage and hosting, also a webpage for the game would be very nice. This means a lot to learn and it is very time consuming – To succeed, I need to enjoy the path too towards the goal, and this can be hard when you forget why are you doing the things you do.

What are your professional duties?

Right now I am not on a project, so my duty is to stuff knowledge in my head. Hopefully I can join Monday 2 Friday soon where I will be able to use my fresh JavaScript knowledge.

As I am not a senior consultant, it is also important to gather new skills and knowledge. I try to support this thirst by obtaining a master’s degree at BME, besides working here.

What do you like to do after or before work?

I need to sit in front of the computer a lot – because of school, too. All of you know how this feels and how tiring that can be. It is a relief when I do a completely different thing – like moving weights. I am a competitive powerlifter for almost 7 years now. This means I train at least 2 times a week, which only happens when I have a resting period – pretty rare. 4-5 times a week is the usual. It really gets you off from the code, and gives you a fresh start when you get back to it.

Please describe it 

Squat, bench press and deadlift. This is the surface of powerlifting. I will definitely share my videos about the national championship, which will be held at the end of April. That will give you a nice understanding about the sport.

Until that: It is mostly about the competition for me – that is what I enjoy the most. There you need to lift the most weight you can, with proper form. 3 referees are checking if the exercise was correct or not. If 2 of them say it was ok, then you got the lift. First comes the squat – pretty basic: pick the weight on your back, walk out, sit down and stand up with it. Then you do the bench press. I believe everyone knows what that is as it is a popular exercise. It is also called as the resting exercise between the squat and the deadlift. You may have guessed – deadlift the 3rd and the last exercise. Basically you need to pick up weight from the floor – nope, not over your head. That is weightlifting. Of course I made it simple, but there are a ton of small things which can make an exercise wrong, or at least hard. But you should only enjoy the training, leave the small technical issues for the competitors – you are more than welcome to try it – and yourself – out.

My trainings are built around the competition – usually two main competitions per year, and a few smaller ones. This gives the structure of my training – it determines when I do the volume and when the intensity work. You can imagine this is not even the tip of the iceberg.

How and when it started?

When I was young and wild – more than now – I used to do skateboarding. Surprisingly it is quite an expensive sport. After around 3 years, all of my equipment broke, all at once and I did not have money to replace them.  I really missed the physical activity, so I joined my classmates at the gym. Like everyone, I started with chest and biceps exercises, every day. For me this is quite funny, this way of training is not effective at all, but it was necessary to get through it of course. I do not think there is anything you can start and instantly being really good at.

So I started to make friends there and one of them invited me to a bench press competition. That was when it all started, with the preparation for that competition. We did not attend on that particular one, but we made another goal for the next event we have found.

The gym was actually owned by one of my classmate’s parents and grandparents. The grandfather of my friend became my very first coach – He was already over 60 back then, but still moved 200Kg and more. The atmosphere was priceless, I still miss it sometimes – a big group of people in a good friendship hanging out, train and having fun. This is what made me stay for a long time and now I do not think I will ever stop it, maybe only for short periods. Of course since then I made a lot of friends – even international ones – had different coaches and lived in different cities because of this sport.

How do you feel with that, what does it give you?

This is the question I could write a book about. First of all, it also asked for a lot as it is really not easy. As everything, this activity also has its drawbacks. This is inevitable, but being on the platform showing you achieved what no one else could is priceless.

It taught me a lot about my body, how it responds to different things. Of course how training makes me stronger, or sometimes weaker… How I respond to different kind of diets, foods and supplements. How important stretching is. How to prevent and treat injury. These are quite useful things, but nowhere close to the mental fitness.

In the gym, you feel when you can start your next exercise, no one is watching, especially not referees. There is a very little chance of failure and if so, you can start it over. But at a competition? The stress you experience at first is a totally different universe. Weight-in, fixed time when you need to give your maximum – maybe with unexpected delays, referees, crowd, competing with others and you only have 3 shots per exercise – and all this at once. There is no way to practice it elsewhere, you need to compete to feel the pressure. Imagine you do your check-in directly to prod, after half a year of work.

Fortunately I am a good competitor and this unfriendly atmosphere becomes one of my greatest advantage. This is hard to achieve and requires ages in my opinion, but definitely can be built by anyone with the right attitude. This means that under the challenge of a competition, I perform better than I would in a normal training. Nowadays I even can benefit of this stress handling skill in other parts of my life – for example when I was doing my state exam, it was totally like a competition for me. This way I could perform better as I was in a familiar situation.

What is the most interesting aspect of this job for you?

I am not really sure why, but I like everything about coding, right from the learning phase throughout until the handover. I like how lines of code and group of resources giving some kind of value out, like a webpage or a computer game. Also I really like that I need to understand stuff and work out solutions.

What are the advantages of working at Atos? How would you describe Atos Consulting Hungary, would you recommend it to a friend?

I am already recommending it to my friends, so yes, I would. I like the atmosphere, the events, the way of work and the opportunities the company offer. Also I really like being together with people I can learn from.
