Klaudia is one of the youngest members of the Support Department and one of the youngest employees at IXTENT as a whole. Nevertheless, she has done a great deal of work in the area of internal reporting. What she enjoys most about IXTENT is the great team and the immense opportunity for professional development.
What did you do before you joined IXTENT?
I studied. I found my first proper job at IXTENT, albeit only part-time – and that’s still the case today. I am currently studying Applied Computer Sciences and before that I was primarily involved in languages and programming to some extent.
How has your position at IXTENT changed since your first day?
I joined the company as a very inexperienced newcomer – although I already had some technical background in IT, I knew nothing about how things worked in companies.
I started out primarily as a temporary worker for our Support Department, but have gradually become quite independent, and I am now able to deal with things that “land on my desk” proactively.
I also dare to say that I have a lot more responsibility than at the beginning, and people in the company trust me to deal with common issues.
What do you like about IXTENT?
We have a great team, there is always a good mood in the office, and the company strives to develop collegiality through various joint activities outside of work, in addition to our professional skills. I also see a great opportunity for professional development here, as an individual can better “show off” their skills and make progress.
What do you enjoy most about your current position?
The challenges and diversity. My job is full of new challenges that I’m always happy to tackle – whether they require creative/logical thinking or learning new things.
I’m also able to evolve relatively quickly in different directions, allowing me to try what I enjoy most and gradually devote more time to it.
If you had to pick 1 or 2 projects that you/your team are really proud of, which ones would they be and why?
Definitely internal reporting in Power BI. This was a big project for me, which I did largely on my own and it took a lot of time and effort. But it was worth it – the reports are used across the company (although primarily still in our Support Department) and I think they are a great asset to the company. It also saves a lot of people a lot of time. But the project was also beneficial for me, I learned a lot – both technically and business-wise.
If you were to recruit a newcomer to your team, how would you introduce the team and IXTENT as whole?
In our team you don’t have to be afraid to be yourself, we accept each other as we are. We are all very hardworking, but we can also unwind with any informal topic or activity. We also joke around a lot, so there’s never a dull moment. And as far as IXTENT as a whole is concerned, it’s quite similar – just more diverse, and there is a family atmosphere. The whole company has great ambitions to move forward professionally, at which it is gradually succeeding.
From the IT perspective, where do you see the future?
Like most people, in the cloud and in artificial intelligence. Both areas have moved forward at an incredible pace in recent years, and I’m curious to see where they take us.
How do you relax?
I would say that I have a lot of activities that help me relax. For starters, it’s playing golf. I’ve been doing this sport for a very long time and since it involves walking in nature, it’s a good way to clear your head and relax (unless you play really badly). Apart from golf, I like to play various computer and Play Station games, or watch TV shows/movies that take my mind off other things. I also occasionally do 3D printing (mainly post-processing) and painting, travel, or occasionally stand in front of a camera as a model.
What is your life motto?
If I had to pick one, the closest would probably be: “I don’t regret anything I’ve done. I only regret what I didn’t do when I had the chance.” I try to enjoy life as much as I can (and as time permits). I’m not afraid to try new things, even if they are a little crazy at times. It’s better than regretting that I didn’t try/experience something!
