What’s your name and where are you from?
Hi I’m Florian! I was born here in Hamburg and grew up in Quickborn, just a few kilometres outside the city.
What do you do at E&V Technology?
I work in the security team, which has now developed from a 1-man project to a small team. In the future I will mainly take over and advance technical security topics. Last year I supported the DSGVO project for one month as a temporary job and was instantly enthusiastic about the E&V Technology GmbH!
What are some of the challenges you have faced so far?
Getting an overview of all IT systems and their interaction is particularly important for security issues. I also try to get to know the people responsible and even remember a few names. The infrastructure environment with Docker, Jenkins and Artifactory is still very new for me, but I am getting used to it.
My typical day at E&V..
.. is still quiet so far and I can concentrate fully on my first topics. In the first few weeks I had many meetings with important stakeholders and got to know the interfaces to security topics. In the lunch break I like to explore the Hafencity, watch the tourists and look for affordable restaurants.
What technology are you most excited about working with next?
Which technology doesn't actually matter, I'm generally looking forward to getting to know many new things.
What was a great surprising thing you discovered after joining E&V?
In contrast to the large enterprise company I was with before, I immediately noticed that my new colleagues stand behind what they are doing here and are therefore enthusiastic about it. Diversity is really lived here and not just talked about. You regularly switch between German and English, get to know people from all over the world and find out what is strange about Germany for newcomers.
I like my coffee…
Black. I prefer to try my hand at Asian coffees, where you can find something different than just Arabica & Robusta, e.g. Excelsa and Cantimor.
