"I go home at the end of the day feeling like I have accomplished something, made a difference. It improves my overall mood at home and at work." What first attracted you to work at Traka? Well when I saw the job role listed on a job site, the description of the role seemed like something that suited me perfectly. A hands on IT job, unlike before where I was in an IT call centre. I wanted to be more involved and I got exactly what I wanted. What do you like most about working at Traka? I love working at Traka. Everyone is friendly and it feels like a flat team structure, everyone seems just as important to the business as Justin or Francesco. To be honest, it’s not something I am used to in a workplace, and I love that about it. It’s the respect everyone has for each other. It doesn’t feel like I’m dragging through the day like previous roles, it’s just extremely enjoyable to be here. Tell us about the best part of your role at Traka? I just like the fact I am getting more hands on with IT equipment, repairing hardware, setting up new systems, trialling new potential systems for the company. I just like how involved I am in the overall IT infrastructure of the business. How would you rate your work-life balance? I go home at the end of the day feeling like I have accomplished something, made a difference. It improves my overall mood at home and at work. End of the day, I still feel awake enough to go out and see friends who also work in IT and all of them are jealous of what I do in comparison to them. What motivates you to go above and beyond at work? Because I am actually seeing the people I am helping, I feel like it is the right thing to do. Give people what they want, and if I cannot, find them the best alternative. What's your most recent accomplishment at work? IT buy a lot of CAD spec laptops for R&D and they have always known to have problems. After much headache I was able to find a solution to it all and now all new systems in R&D work perfectly as they should. Do you believe we give authentic recognition in the workplace? I do. People in Traka understand that without IT there would be no functioning business. So we really are treated with a lot of respect. Do you think that Traka offer adequate opportunities for promotions and career development? I’ve never known a company to focus so much on staff development as Traka. To say it’s impressive is an understatement. How would you describe the culture at Traka? The respect, no matter what department you are in, everyone knows each other, everyone is equal, I love that about Traka. Would you recommend Traka as an employer? Definitely, I have many friends who are interested in joining Traka. I would recommend it anyone.
