Peter’s Story

It is very important to me to show the beauty of sports to my daughters.

Read the full interview here

After trying lots of sports (judo, kayak, rugby, mountain biking, etc..) I fell in love with running and I run a marathon in 2003. After getting married, sports got a bit relegated. Some years ago, I decided to do some sports again regularly. I’ve lost about 20 kg and I decided to run a marathon again this spring.

It is very important to me to show the beauty of sports to my daughters. They play water polo and they also like to run on running races with me and my wife. I’m sure, that sports can add a lot to our personal life and helps to perform better in our professional activities.

Dragan’s Story

What I really like about my job is that I get to work in international environment – being in daily contact with Atos colleagues and customers from different countries and cultures.

Please tell us bit about yourself, your feelings about your first days at Atos Consulting Hungary.

I came to Hungary 1 year and 4 months ago from Macedonia. Before coming over here, I was working for 5 years in other IT companies in Macedonia. I worked as a Software Developer on .NET and PHP applications.

My first days at Atos were really nice. This is my first time working abroad, first time in Hungary. So it’s obvious that I was kind of confused, but people were very supportive, helping me to get familiar with the language, culture and habits of the locals, as well as the way of working in the company.

What is your area of responsibility?

I work in SW development area, where I am responsible for daily contacts with customers from different markets. I also manage software development team and ensure quality of deliverables. What I really like about my job is that I get to work in international environment – being in daily contact with Atos colleagues and customers from different countries and cultures. It is great opportunity for me to improve my language and professional skills.

And how do you find Hungary?

Oh I really enjoy it here – I recommend to anybody who has not been to Hungary to come over, especially to Budapest and Lake Balaton. It’s really beautiful. People are really nice, friendly and helpful. Of course language is bit challenging I even have my own challenge: when I am surrounded by Hungarians, I try to find at least one word that I could understand, guess what the conversation is about and if I get it right I celebrate my small victory with a smile. Another peculiar thing about Hungarian is pronouncing of “S” – it is actually pronounced “SH” and if word contains “SZ” it is pronounced “S”. I find it still sometimes confusing. And one more thing which I have noticed about Hungarians – green eyes seem to be quite common.

Thank you very much for sharing your story with us and all the best.

Thank you, pleasure is all mine.

Eric Estes

Eric’s Story

I’m a consultant so I am expected to represent the company at all times. I interact with the client, investigate problems with existing code, develop new code, and try to mentor less experienced developers.

Read the full interview here

When did you come to Hungary?

I first came to Hungary in 1997 in the US Army as a soldier in support of Operation Joint Guard. There I met my wife Antia (Léka) who I drug back to the states with me and married on a fiance visa. We have vacationed several times in Hungary since then, but decided to move home last year after trying to raise our twin girls without any other family.

When did you started working at Atos?

I started working at ATOS around the 22nd of September, 2016.

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

No, I have been working in the IT field since 2003. I started in Tech support and then got my Computer Science degree from the University of Montana. I have worked for several technical areas including telecommunications, GIS, Accounting and Insurance.

How do you like your first days at Atos? What was the challenge?

So far it has been a very positive experience. There are a lot of challenges, learning a large code base, tools, Azure, and of course Hungarian.

What are your professional duties?

I’m a consultant so I am expected to represent the company at all times. I interact with the client, investigate problems with existing code, develop new code, and try to mentor less experienced developers.

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

I really enjoy all the languages. It’s very common to hear French and Hungarian in the office, which is not very common in the States, at least in my experience.

How do you like Hungary? Do you like people here?

I’m quite fond of Hungary. I’ve been able to travel around and see a lot of castles and churches, it has a very rich history! The people are great, down to earth and very hospitable.

What was the most surprising for you when you arrived to Hungary?

The first thing I remember getting off of the plane is the difference in the humidity. Montana is very dry and so the air here felt very heavy.

What are the biggest advantages of working at Atos? Why would you like to recommend Atos as employer?

Atos provides a great working environment with real world technical problems and tackles them with the consultant mindset and a focus on end user experience. Atos is big enough to provide a secure working environment, have a variety of clientele, and still small enough to do agile development with quick iterations.

Gabor Bocso

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 Kovacs

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.

Read the full interview here

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.

Erzsebet-Czerwinski Nagy

Erzsebet’s Story

The biggest challenge is to get an overview of the whole infrastructure and manage to have good working contact all over the world. Now I can be proud that I have people at the company all over the world, who trust me, and with whom we can count on each other.

Read the full interview here

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

I have been working in the area of IT for 10 years. I graduated as lawyer and my first work in Hungary was still a back-office job. In 2008 I started to be a Service Desk agent. I worked at night and during weekends, so I met many technical issues which needed a solution immediately so I was constantly learning and improving. I had to choose if I would like to go ahead with people management or do a technical career, I decided for the technical one, which matched better to my personality and did not disturb my private projects.

Once I wanted to work again during the day to see the Sun and not to live any more as a vampire, so I changed my company and started to be a 2nd level agent. On this position I trained the 1st level colleagues and worked out knowledge base for a couple of projects. I enjoyed working on transitions (when we took over new projects from other companies), as it was a mixture of technical, procedural tasks and I saw that I can influence finally setting of the work conditions for my project.

From there I changed to a small company, where I got new challenges: server administration, work as local IT (so I had to learn quickly not to wear skirt at my workplace) and I ordered all hardware and software licenses for the EMEA region. My next place was Application Support (focus was on SharePoint and web apps running on Linux servers). From there I changed to my current position.

My current position at Atos offered a broader scope of technical improvement and the company made the impression that here the employees are really in the focus. I was enthusiastic when I saw that the management knows everybody, they speak with us, they listen to us and they are keen on building a team here. I enjoy it very much.

When did you start working at Atos?

I have been working for Atos since September 2017 as „Technical Specialist”. I’m a team member of a 3-persons group, the TPAM Application Support.

How do you like your first days at Atos? What was the challenge?

My first day at Atos was at Tata, when the company had a 2 days long team building event. The challenge was to go to the circle of at least 30 young men and introduce myself, while we were waiting for the bus next to Infopark. I was not left alone, they were very friendly, so I felt myself comfortable after a very short time. After these 2 days I was already comfortable with the first real workday, I met familiar faces.

What are your professional duties and how it changed last years?

My professional duties are quite diversified. My supported tool supports all kinds of system administrators at our partner company. We do 3rd level support, which means first of all to be responsible for implementation of new systems. We need to understand the technical background, especially the network requirements and work out a support model, which is different according to the actual needs. We are there to advise the 2nd level colleagues, so we are involved in some troubleshooting also, just to keep us fit for thinking. As this is the beginning of the project, I had to create the knowledge base and different administrative databases. The biggest challenge is to get an overview of the whole infrastructure and manage to have good working contact all over the world. Now I can be proud that I have people at the company all over the world, who trust me, and with whom we can count on each other.

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

The most interesting is to understand deeper how the systems works, which I used previously only as an end user, not as an administrator. The most challenging is the motivation of independent teams in order to be able to do my part of the job as soon as possible.

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

She needs to be aware that she will be beloved. She can be self-confident, as her mistakes will be excused much easier than of boys and her strong points will be more appreciated. I experienced only advantage of being a woman in IT J. The less girls are present, the more the other colleagues are happy about having you around and the instinct to take care can be freely exerted. Sometimes with a smile we can reach more than others with lot of discussion. Girls have usually very good skills to motivate and organize people around, which can be an advantage of the colleagues also. The most important: we manage more, we are stronger, but we cannot forget that we must be even professionally the best, to deserve the honor of the other colleagues.

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

It depends, how you define the IT market. From my perspective I enjoy my current situation very much, it is less stressful for me to work with boys. In Service Desk specialized companies or divisions, you can meet more women as personal care is just as useful as IT skills. On the other hand, more technical jobs usually mean less women colleagues – so my purpose is to be as technical as possible. Where the “feminine skills” are missing from the market, we have a good chance to reach whatever we want.

What do you like to do after or before work?

I have been organizing flat renovations for 5 years and right now we start to renovate also a family house. I learnt many typical man’s work like painting, tiling, bricklayer work etc. I always enjoy learning something new and live according to my principal: there is no impossible task, just task which you did not try at all. I work as common representative of the condominium where our flats are located, so I need to organize the life, renovations of the building and people who live there. It takes unbelievable amount of time and efforts, but we already did a wonder there, and we are full of plans for the next 10 years for sure.

What are the biggest advantages of working at Atos? Why would you like to recommend Atos as employer?

There are not several hundreds of colleagues, we know at least the face of almost everyone. I like the attitude of the management. They are still human beings who take care of us. We can contact directly, personally and without formalities even the top managers and they are interested what happens with us – even personally. I need to praise the kitchens, which are big enough and very well equipped. So many kinds of teas you have never tried before. The 3 fruit days are also more than generous. I like that the working hours are quite flexible and the home office opportunity makes our life more comfortable. There are many team buildings but I have never seen any behavior that I should have been ashamed.

Last but not the least I have never worked for a company where so many open minded, helpful people would work on all levels and where we can spontaneously ask for advice and get immediate assistance. I think, it is also the merit of HR, they really chose new family members and not everybody who applies for a job, just because language skills or similar work-related advantages.

Peter Horvath

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.
