You are a skilled programmer who builds solutions on various platforms.
You can tweak and combine technologies to satisfy all of the client’s needs.
“I attended an IT high school for three years and then the University of Finance and Administration in Prague. I wanted to join Adastra to gain new experience and because I didn’t feel like doing the same things over and over again; I don’t like the daily grind. And I was pleasantly surprised by my colleagues. We even have experts on some technologies who’ve been working here for 20 years and I can ask them about anything.”
You enjoy racking your brain with a tech challenge to simplify a complex or lengthy process. You can design a solution like that and aren’t afraid to discuss it with the client.
"I had almost no knowledge of DWH when I joined Adastra. However, I learned the basic principles quickly and some time later I moved on to a position of senior ETL developer. Then came the big DHW project for GE Money Bank. I became the right hand of the technical architect and learned a lot of new things from him. Since then I’ve been working on projects as the main DWH architect and I enjoy it."

I find that combining consulting and analytical activities is quite useful, even though I still have a fair bit to learn about the technical side of things. But I have great colleagues here who help me learn, and they are what make my working environment so pleasant."
You are a bit of a project manager. You listen to people to find out what’s bothering them. And you come up with a way to resolve their problems using the ICT technology.
"Every day is different at work. I work as a team leader, so I push people on projects forward. Also, I perform analyses, come up with strategies, do some coding, and train our customers."
You understand people, numbers, and business. You can handle conflict situations and aren’t afraid to make major changes in a multinational company.
“I coordinate our Adastra team, do some installing and communicate with the business department. Every day begins with a stand-up meeting and we work in sprints. Our team of 12 members is the biggest in the division, and two of the members are women. And we all love it. We cooperate with other Adastra entities, such as Adastra Germany and Adastra Canada.”
