We interviewed our teammate Bianca.
Why did you choose to work in the tech industry?
Does your knowledge also help you in your everyday life?
How did you discover envelio?
Kira, our VP People & Organization, contacted me on LinkedIn. She said that I have the expertise that envelio is looking for. I really liked the company website, so I just applied. After the application process, I figured envelio is a very nice place to work. I had a very good positive impression and started my work at the company in January 2020.
How would you describe the corporate culture at envelio?
I really like the atmosphere. Everyone is treated equally. It doesn’t matter who you are. Also, envelio cares about the environment and about sustainability. The way the employees behave really reflects what envelio stands for.
What are your tasks at envelio, what do you like the most?
I am part of the Front-end Squad and responsible for developing features in the Intelligent Grid Platform (IGP). I develop solutions so that our customers can interact with the tool without errors. If the users require changes, I am doing my best to make it happen. I am also in close contact with our Back-end developers who are, responsible for the integration. What I like the most is the planning part creating concepts, implementing new features, and improving the IGP.
Is there a project you are particularly proud of? And why?
For me it’s the “Schematic Plan” and the “MPR Connection Request” – both important features of the Intelligent Grid Platform. The Schematic Plan app (SP) was one of the first implementations I worked on at envelio. Later, the application received some code improvements that I also worked on. So, the SP is one of the areas that I know quite well. The MPR (multiple participant request) is a new feature on Connection Request where the user is able to connect multiple types of participants to the same node within one dossier. Together with my squad, I participated from conception to implementation of this new feature. This is something I am really proud of!
Why are women a benefit to the tech industry?
Women are taught by society to be more organized, more committed than men. On the other hand, men are encouraged to develop logical thinking. The prejudice that women can’t think logically is fundamentally wrong – I am sure it’s something that each person can learn. But women can bring in new perspectives, just like different cultures and diverse backgrounds can. I think different perspectives provide diversity which is important for all companies.
What are the challenges of being a woman in tech?
We are not encouraged to work in this field. In general, the society does not encourage women to develop skills needed in the tech field. So, we must always prove ourselves. Men don’t. I always try to motivate women that they can achieve whatever they want. They just need to try it.
Would you recommend tech jobs to young girls?
I would strongly recommend it. You can work everywhere in the world. Also, you can work for every company and every industry, you are free in your choices. The future demands more software engineers due to advancing digitalization. And you are getting paid a good salary for the effort you put into your work.
