Would you like to know our partners better, where you can even start your new IT career after the course? We have great news then! We sat down with Aliz's Community Manager, Petra Palotás, and asked her what kind of workplace Aliz is and why it is good to work there. Read our article and get to know Aliz!
Aliz was founded in 2010 by a team of software engineers with a vision to solve exciting business challenges around the world with cutting-edge technologies.
Our primary goal is to fully support our customers in adapting to the challenges of digitization and prepare future-proof operations for them. Since 2015, our company has been dealing exclusively with Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and we were the first Hungarian company to obtain the extremely complex premier partner status of the cloud service provider. We have the highest qualifications available in the areas of cloud migration, data analysis, infrastructure and machine learning, and in addition, several of our larger projects are aimed at application development.
The headquarters of Aliz is in Budapest, but we also have offices in Berlin, Singapore, and we recently opened a new office in Milan. We have participated in the successful cloud migration of +200 customers, and our customers’ profile are mainly from the e-commerce (e.g. Delivery Hero), aviation industry (e.g. Wizzair), digital media (e.g. Emarsys), manufacturing and financial (e.g. Bank Jago) sectors.
Our vision - formulated at the time of our founding - still has an important impact on our operations and culture. We like to deal with realistic ideas without unnecessary rounds. We look for challenges that no one else has been able to solve before, and in the light of high professional standards, we carefully consider which project we take part in. On the top of that, you will find an open, transparent and supportive environment in Aliz, where you are seen primarily as a person and not as an employee, where your argument is more important than your current position, where you are encouridged to implement your ideas, where you can have a coffee with the company manager at any time and play darts or pinball.
We have been following Green Fox's activities since the beginning. We offered a job to a graduate from one of your first classes, who has been working for us for five years now. Besides, there are currently three other Green Fox graduates in our team.
We currently have more than 30 open positions. We are looking for talents from junior to architect level for DevOps, Data Engineering, Data Science and Application Development fields into our teams in Budapest, Berlin, Asia (Singapore, Vietnam) and Milan. We welcome applications from juniors primarily for our data (Python), AppDev (Java) and DevOps projects.
The need for continuous development is part of our everyday life not only as a company, but also as an individual. Thus, every member of our development team has a professional mentor, as well as a People Leader who supports their career path and well-being. In addition, we organize Junior and Medior Clubs for our colleagues every two weeks. Furthermore, everyone can use 100 hours/year and a fixed budget for personal development and learning.
In the case of juniors, hard skills are less important than the candidate's learning abilities and attitude, but in the case of a senior position, both factors are important. Due to the dynamic project and technological environment, the ability to learn quickly and flexibility are extremely important factors when it comes to selection.
They are enthusiastic, open-minded, eager to learn and prove themselves. In addition, it is a big plus that they already have work experience, unlike those who have freshly graduated from university.
According to our experience, the factors mentioned for the previous question are not only important to us, but to Green Fox as well. Moreover, most of their students have already put something on the table in other fields that have great added value. On the top of that we share similar values and corporate culture.
We are facing the same problem. The biggest challenge to our large-scale growth is the lack of specialists, which affects the whole IT market, too. That is why we build teams in several foreign locations, place special emphasis on the development of our juniors, or trust non-traditional recruitment methods like bootcamps from the very beginning.
Our experience can confirm this, and that is why we try to support any initiative that aims to improve this ratio. For example this year, we participated as speakers in the Ladies' Coding Night event, organized by Green Fox Academy.
At Aliz, we think of ourselves as an international company from the very beginning. This year, we opened our third foreign office in Milan, and we are constantly investigating the possibility of entering into other markets.
We believe in continuous renewal, and along with this approach we are expanding our portfolio with scalable products and the operation business in addition to our existing, successful services. We would like to continue the 50% annual profit growth.
As for the main pillar, the team, we want to expand from the current 100 people with 70 people by the end of 2023 - while preserving the special, friendly and respect-based corporate culture that characterizes Aliz. We spare neither the energy nor the money for this.
Miért fontos, hogy növekedjen a nők szerepvállalása IT területen? Hogyan lehetne javítani a női munkavállalók arányát? Kinek való ez a szakma, és hogyan érdemes belevágni? Ezekről a témákról beszélgettünk Fachs Anitával, a Green Fox Academy magyarországi operációjának vezetőjével.
A programozó bootcampek 2015-ös indulásuk óta már közel 2000 juniort bocsátottak a magyar munkaerőpiacra. Hogyan tudnak beilleszkedni a képzésről kikerülő fejlesztők az IT cégeknél, mire van szüksége valójában a piacnak - ezeket a kérdéseket jártuk körbe decemberi meetupunkon.
A rugalmasság mára megkerülhetetlen szerepet kapott a vállalati működésben. Akár növekedés előtt álló üzletágról, akár új technológiai igényről van szó, az időben meghozott döntés hosszú távú versenyelőnyt jelenthet. Ilyen esetre hatékony megoldás egy speciális, vállalati képzés elindítása.
A cégek fejlődésének egyik legnagyobb akadálya a megfelelő IT szakemberek hiánya. Speciális, vállalatra szabott képzésekkel nem csupán a felvételi folyamat válhat hatékonyabbá, de a betanulási idő is jelentősen lecsökken, miközben erősíthető a munkavállalói motiváció. A képzések gyakorlati előnyeiről Bárdos Kristóf, a Green Fox Academy ügyvezetője osztja meg tapasztalatait.

The low-code development platform market is expected to witness a notable annual growth rate of 31.3% during 2020–2030. According to P&S Intelligence, the market revenue will reach $190,792.6 million by 2030. This trend has a significant impact on the job market as well, creating a huge demand for low-code developers. In order to provide a better understanding of low-code and the opportunities it creates, we organized a roundtable discussion. Check out the key insights that came out of the session.
On March 17 we were happy to co-host the “Tech Up Your Business” webinar together with Green Fox Academy live on Facebook and Zoom. Our renowned speakers from Microsoft, SAS and Emarsys discussed the importance of tech skills for business professionals in various industries, as well as achieving a certain level of familiarity with contemporary technologies to succeed in the business world of today.
The rapid change in development needs and technologies, a shortage of quality workforce, and the difficulty of retaining colleagues with valuable professional skills are major challenges for companies worldwide. How to give a unique answer to a global problem? Who is responsible for the management of this problem, and where should you start? We discussed all these questions with Anita Fachs, who is the managing director in charge of corporate services at Green Fox.
