Some months ago, I answered some questions about my first impressions of Tiqqe and why I decided to join. It is time to tell you more about how my journey is going and how it is getting into Tiqqe.
The first impression I had of Tiqqe was that I was in a special company, which is characterized by unique core values and that is completely different from and with all of those that compose the IT sector.
When you start a new job however, you are on a cloud and what you usually get to see the first weeks is a front of the reality that is too good to be true: the company tends to show only the best part of itself and you don’t really know your colleagues and the dynamics within the work environment.Only after two or three months you get to know the true character of the company and to face the problems across the latter. That is how it usually is but it was not like that with Tiqqe.
Tiqqe did not put up any facade, trying to show something it wasn’t. Tiqqe was transparent and honest from my first interview: #theTIQQEcode, avoiding hierarchies, stay agile, be nice, courage, team over the individuals, employees and clients first, inclusivity are real and they are aspects on which everyone of us is working on every day.
Getting into Tiqqe has been easier than what I could imagine: for the first time in my career, my goals both personal and professional go hand in hand with the goals of the company, my vision is my company’s vision.Even though I started concurrently with the beginning of the pandemic, I got the support of my colleagues and the organization. It felt natural to get into the dynamics of the company and to become part of it.
Currently I am a SRE for Postnord AWS Retail backend and I am having the opportunity to work with amazing developers and awesome people. No matter the workloads we have or the stress level we could reach, we support each other and we try to be always nice: we succeed and fail together.
Getting into Tiqqe is getting into a next generation company and I am proud of being part of it.
