"I keep developing myself by working on challenging projects"
Tatiana Ungureanu finished the OOTI training four years ago and has been working as a software engineer at Sioux in Eindhoven even since. Tatiana: "Sioux really distinguishes itself from other companies. At a lot of companies the end product has their main focus, at Sioux the people are the products. They invest a lot in the development of our careers because we are their biggest assets."
Personal career coaching
At Sioux everyone has an own People Manager that guides them through their career and helps every employee to realize their full potential. Tatiana: "The first couple of years I worked on various challenging projects in different domains to get a good taste of all the opportunities within Sioux. I have seen several domains (electron microscopy, PCB printers, solar panel fabrication) and I have seen how various companies work. I worked on projects in several start-up companies, developing green-field ideas in interdisciplinary environments, and that has been very challenging and interesting. Sioux tried to match the projects to my personal interest and preference as much as possible. All the time there was a strong focus on me as a person."
Personal education budget
Tatiana: "Every Sioux employee has a personal education budget of 6.000 euro per year to train their technical skills as well as their soft skills. Sioux helped me to reach my full potential by the project opportunities, the training and courses they provided me."
Partnership and ownership
Tatiana: "Sioux has a different vision on the way we handle projects and an own vision on what is important. Sioux believes very strongly in partnerships with their customers. Through this, we are unique in the region. We aren’t just a service-provider but really part of the companies we work for. This makes the work that we do very rewarding. Everybody works together to find the best solutions. I really feel ownership for what I make. I have an important say in how things are done, this really motivates me and helps me to learn a lot."
Tatiana: "I have an important influence on my own career path. Sioux has been very supportive in giving me the challenges that match my interest, talent and experience. But at the end of the day, I am still in the lead of my own career. That is a great feeling."
