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.
Krisztina fiatal anyukaként vágott bele a Hello IT! for Women programba. Jó adag elszántságra és kitartásra volt szüksége, hiszen nem csak édesanya, de egyetemista is egyben, mégis az elsők között végezte el a kifejezetten nőknek szóló alapozó IT kurzusunkat, ami az INCO Academy - Work in Tech programja keretében valósul meg. Mi a titka? Hogyan küzdött meg a mindennapi kihívásokkal? Erről mesél nekünk.
Bár már régóta divatos IT buzzword a DevOps, még mindig kevesen vannak tisztában vele, mit is takar valójában. A legnagyobb elemző cégek becslése szerint a DevOps eszközök piaca a 2018-as 3,42 milliárdról 2026-ra 15 milliárd dollárra fog nőni, ráadásul ezzel párhuzamosan a piacon is egyre több DevOps szakemberre lesz igény.
Az informatikai szektort érintő szakemberhiány a munkaerőpiac egyik legnagyobb kihívásává nőtte ki magát. Ebben a helyzetben egyre nagyobb jelentőséget kapnak a speciálisan vállalatra szabott megoldások. A corporate bootcamp kifejezetten a cég igényei alapján kidolgozott képzés, ami akár azonnal projektre állítható szakembereket biztosít. A gyakorlati működést és előnyöket a Lufthansa Systems Hungáriával kialakított együttműködésünkön keresztül mutatjuk be.
Vállalati partnerünkkel, a Morgan Stanley budapesti központjával együttműködésben kivételes lehetőséget kínáló ösztöndíjprogramot indítunk 2022 áprilisától. A Java Academy corporate bootcamp keretében 15 tehetséges, a Java nyelv és a szerveroldali programozás iránt érdeklődő hallgató térítésmentesen indíthatja újra karrierjét Back-end fejlesztőként.
Az informatikushiány egy több évtizedes probléma Magyarországon. Ennek kapcsán az aktuális IT munkaerőpiaci trendekről, megoldási lehetőségekről beszélgetett Bogyó Péter, a HRTV adásszerkesztő műsorvezetője Fachs Anitával, a Green Fox Academy magyarországi operációjának vezetőjével. Az alábbiakban a beszélgetés legfontosabb részeit foglaltuk össze.
Big Data has recently turned the business world upside down and has created a need for professionals who can create order out of chaos, i.e. who can create and operate data management systems that allow the organization, cleansing, transformation and analysis of millions of data points.
The popularity of low-code platforms is increasing in the whole world, and the demand for experts in this field is growing rapidly. Nikolett Tarjáni-Dobos left her dietician career to become a software developer and has been working as a low-code programmer in Germany for almost 2 years. She first heard about this field when she was looking for a job. Yet, she now feels lucky that this became her new career. But what does a low-code developer do and how does a working day go? We asked Niki about these topics as well as about the misconceptions around low-coding.
The lack of professionals in the IT sector has clearly become one of the biggest challenges in the labour market. In this situation, solutions tailor-made for a company’s needs are gaining ground. The corporate bootcamp is a training specifically designed to meet a company's needs and expectations. Its graduates are professionals who are ready to join a project immediately. Now we explain the practical operation and the advantages through the example of our co-operation with Lufthansa Systems Hungária.
