Strong professional know-how is our greatest asset
Leading Hungarian IT firm evosoft Hungary Kft is a member of Siemens AG, the largest European engineering and technology concern. In its nearly 20 years of existence, it has grown into one of the most stable employers on the IT market, and our name is now synonymous with quality work performed by experts.
We play a leading role in a sector that is one of the most enticing to employees. There is a huge demand for trained professionals, as is shown by, among other things, the large number of open engineer positions on job sites. Year after year, it is a big challenge to increase our competitiveness in a knowledge-based job market environment by efficiently luring professionals to us, as well, of course, as having the goal of hanging on to them in the long-term, too.
Employees can choose from an increasing number of strongly branded companies with secure and stable employer backgrounds, with expectations varying a lot in regards to their appeal. With regard to the demands of the younger generation, we can see that besides financial compensation, an international working environment, the opportunity to work abroad, and the predictability of careers and promotions have grown to be the most desirable aspects, as people aim to see ahead to the step beyond the next.
The use of ongoing performance reviews is also an important criterion in long-term commitment to an employer. It is important that employees receive constant feedback, support and information from managers during projects, and that they become part of decisions, and successes and failures alike. The greatest appeal of evosoft is the domain know-how that can be acquired in many fields.
We are present in various fields from the development of medical software through rail and industrial automation and drive technology to the electric car market. At evosoft, our colleagues work on top-level international projects, for example we develop medical technology software which thousands of doctors in radiology, cardiology or neural science use around the world. But this is also where the bulk of the leading global industrial automation technology system is made, or the software that runs in the electric cars of one of the largest car manufacturers. Rather than classic software development methodology, we employ methods that give us a serious competitive edge in the market and lay the foundations for our industry-leading role.
In our everyday work, we use C#, ASP.NET, C++, Java, VHDL, e-language, and various databases. We develop for embedded systems as well as for traditional PCs. We develop software in a Microsoft environment, as well as under Linux/Unix. As a software development company, the know-how of our employees is our greatest asset. We believe that the personal performance and professional development of individuals provides the basis for the successful future of evosoft. It is through their intellectual capital that we have achieved the position we hold. Our goal is to manage this intellectual capital, enrich it and keep it in-house.
We experience again and again that financial remuneration and bonuses no longer act as incentives: those who have been earning well for years but feel that their progress through the ranks of their profession has stalled, that there is no further way up, will soon become demotivated. Through our internal procedures, we offer varied work opportunities to our employees: if someone wants to familiarize themselves with new technologies or a new field, they don’t have to go to another company to do so, as we offer the option to move within the company.
Our employees can choose from among more than 100 vocational training opportunities in line with their individual jobs and career paths. Our employees can attend professional training, conferences, technology seminars, soft-skill training and management skill development training. At evosoft, we strive to get involved in product development at ever-earlier stages and with ever-increasing responsibility. This is one of the reasons why we are in contact with end-users: people in the industry and at clinics, people we also actively involve in development cycles. In our work, we also place great emphasis on addressing future engineers. We are present at a number of technical higher education institutions as main sponsors, and run our own scholarship programs in Eger, Debrecen, Miskolc and Szeged.
We have prepared a full-semester academic course for Dunaújváros College, and introduce the main aspects of software engineering in a special joint course at Szeged University of Sciences. We really endeavor to make evosoft well known in Hungary’s biggest universities and colleges, so that when graduates make their choice of employers, as many of them as possible will opt for high-quality engineering work at evosoft.
