As a company that is rapidly growing, there are a lot of different people and new starters almost every week and as all 300+ of us are working in different cities, countries and in remote locations, communication is a massive key for success. It’s also about getting to know each and every one. We have pretty solid systems for communicating internally and people are always welcoming new joiners warmly as well as helping each other to get up and running and integrated as efficiently and smoothly as possible.
One of the first tips I got, in the beginning, was “get to know the people”.
Nordcloudians are helpful and willing to go the extra mile. By knowing our people, we build even more transparent and successful business.
I had a chat with one of our Cloud Architects, Peter G. Marczis, who was happy to tell about his story.
1. Where are you from and how did you end up at Nordcloud?
I am Hungarian with a background in electrical engineering, programming, software development and dev ops (for example at Nokia and Rovio). I have lived also in Finland and when Nordcloud opened an office in Denmark, I wanted to get back in the company!
2. What is your role and core competence?
Cloud Architect. I have software development background and many years with Linux. I now work mostly with AWS.
3. What do you like most about working at Nordcloud?
Flexibility and investment on our people. We have the opportunity to work remotely as well as have social and customer facing role. Our environment is never settling and always changing, so there are always new challenges. We have a very good training program – I am encouraged to take any courses and learn new things every day.
4. What is the most useful thing you have learned at Nordcloud?
To speak with both IT&Business people and being able to fill the gaps between, as you really need these social skills.
5. What’s your favourite thing with public cloud?
Nowadays it’s so easy to start new things from scratch, for example, apps from anywhere. You can learn new things quickly and anybody can start a huge journey and make a big difference without big investments.
6. What do you do outside work?
I have 2 small kids whom I spend most of my free time with. I also like to repair my car, I am also dj’ing, and I am learning to play piano.
7. Best Nordcloudian memory?
We have a lot of fun! Our amazing staff is open and friendly and we have a great team spirit. I really feel part of the family, and we are more than a company, more like “legends and union of cloud architects”. We share the same mindset and I really like our tech&beer events. Our management is always pushing us to learn the newest technology, tools and processes. Everything moves quickly, not a single day is the same, there are no limitations and communication is easy.
Sounds pretty awesome! If you feel like you could be a good fit to the team, please have a look at our open vacancies here: http://nordcloud.com/careers.
