This Spring we bring to you both our Academies – Tech Step and German Language Academy. Today we give the spotlight to Kalina, a Tech Step graduate, to share her experience. So, if you speak Spanish, German, French or Portuguese and want to step up in your career make IT happen with Tech Step Academy. Upon graduation you’ll be offered to join one of our Enterprise projects.
Sutherland: What caught your interest in the Academy?
Kalina: It was a great point to touch almost all of the basic knowledge for a good engineer related to servers, software and more. The academy is an excellent jump from non-tech to technical understanding of the ‘black box’ called computer and the magic of the Internet. I had an excellent knowledge as a system administrator, but this was a good refreshment of my knowledge.
S: Why did you decide to apply?
K: My application was proposed by one of the managers in our Enterprise programs with hope that I will be one of the more technical additions to the team.
S: What is the thing that you liked most about the academy?
K: The plenty of technologies to be practiced!
S: What was the atmosphere in class?
K: It was excellent, full of young and motivated people.

S: What’s your team like?
K: This is the best team ever. Full of young and willing to work people. Our seniors are excellent and always willing to help. There are no conflicts, and I know there it will never be. But the “Crème de la Crème” is our manager – Desislava Boeva. She is the best manager that I will ever have.
