Welcome Alessandro, can you tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to join Swisscom?
Sure! I have a background in software development and have always been interested in working in the tech industry. I have a Ph.D in physics which I obtained in Glasgow, and one of the steps in my career was being an Engineer at CERN in Geneva, where I got to work on some really exciting projects. When I saw an opportunity to join Swisscom, I jumped at the chance. I was really impressed by the company's reputation and the innovative projects we were working on.
What has been your experience like so far at Swisscom?
It's been great! The thing I like most about working at Swisscom is the level of trust and autonomy we have as teams. We're encouraged to take ownership of our projects and think outside the box, which has been really motivating for me. We operate in an agile environment with distributed development teams, so we're able to collaborate effectively and deliver high-quality work.
Can you speak about the company culture?
Absolutely. Swisscom has a really positive culture. We invest a lot in the growth and training of our employees, which is something I value a lot. I feel like I'm constantly learning and improving my skills here. Additionally, we have regular team-building activities and opportunities to bond with colleagues. I've made some great connections and friends here, which has made my transition to the company much easier.
What would you say is the most exciting aspect of working at Swisscom?
The most exciting aspect for me is the opportunity to work on cutting-edge projects and technologies. Swisscom is always pushing the boundaries and coming up with new and innovative solutions, which is really inspiring. It's a fast-paced and dynamic environment, and I love being a part of it. Additionally, I appreciate working in multi-cultural teams with people from different backgrounds and identities. It brings diverse perspectives and ideas to the table and makes the work environment more enriching. Also, I appreciate the fact that our team is distributed and extended to the DevOps center we have in Riga (Latvia) which allows us to have a broader view and different approach in our projects.
Lastly, would you recommend Swisscom to others looking to join the tech industry?
Absolutely! I would recommend Swisscom to anyone looking to join the tech industry, regardless of their professional background. The company offers a wide range of opportunities and projects, so you're sure to find something that suits you. If you want to work in a dynamic and innovative environment with a great team, Swisscom is the place to be. We offer a lot of opportunities for growth and development, and the company culture is really supportive. I feel lucky to be a part of this company and would highly recommend it to others.
