Hello Frank, how are you?

Hi, I am excited about talking to you!

How did you find ista?

Ista was referred to me by a friend

What convinced you to come to ista?

Mainly, the people and their values. If you speak to ista employees you’ll find that all of them are respectful, kind and they know what they are talking about

Do you like to work on new challenges?

Definitely yes. However, you also need some common stable ground to base the challenges on. Otherwise you’ll lose focus.

Can you remember your first project at ista?

Sure, it’s not that long ago since I am with ista for only 3 ½ years. It was the replacement of a web application within the portal. It was fund since we together managed to renew almost everything, the tech stack, the tooling, the infrastructure and the processes. Everything towards Microservices and DevOps including Containerization. It was a rollercoaster but we succeeded. I am really proud on my people.

What are your doing at ista?

As Customer Centricity Manager in the TecCrew I am responsible for putting the customer in the focus of all actions. It's all about the understanding why it's important to know who our customer - and what they do and why they do it. Only then can we deliver real value.

Who are your favorite people to work with?

Motivated and positive people who want to make a real difference together and are open to new ideas and perspectives. And, of course, those who have fun at work.

Mathias Goerring
IT Product Manager
Chat

How did you find ista?

Quite classically via the Stepstone job platform.

What convinced you to come to ista?

The fact that I had one of the best application processes I have ever experienced with my colleagues: Very dedicated contact persons, pleasant and interesting conversations and the feeling of being in good hands right away.

Who are your favourite people to work with?

First of all of course my amazing Team Collaboration / Websites and our Head Of, Ralf. Since we mostly offer corporate solutions, I also stay in contact with colleagues from many other countries or departments, which is a very interesting and inspiring mix.

When did you write code for the first time?

I think it was while building the first homepage, back at the age of 14 or 15 when I started to play guitar and joined my first band.

Johannes Fürwentsches
Head of Marketing Technology
Chat

What convinced you to come to ista?

First of all: The people! Furthermore, the chance to help in creating a new department within an established company, with a very clear focus on digital solutions. Bringing together business and IT experts in order to create better customer experiences and state of the art service experiences, in an industry where customer centricity was not always in focus, that’s a challenge I wanted to take. And as a bonus: The fact that ista’s head office is located in my home town.

What is the composition of your team?

My team, which is called Marketing Technology, is acting as a proxy between the different departments of the German business unit and several teams within the IT organization. We are currently seven people working on a bunch of different projects, which all have one thing in common: They are Sales and/or Marketing related. We strive to collect and refine requirements for IT solutions, consult on possible solutions and translate between business and IT.

What does the future of IT look like to you?

A smarter way of interaction between humans and machines, meaning a higher degree of automation (robots) within the IT systems and their ability to “ask the right questions at the right time”, through machine-to-machine communication (API’s) and AI

I lead a team of specialists in the fields of Customer Insights & Analytics, Performance Marketing, User Experience & Design, Marketing Technology and Product Ownership.

I’d definitely like to be more creative – in a design kind of way. But I my gut feeling in terms of self-assessment leans toward talentlessness in that area...

How does ista support your personal goals?

ista provides me with a working environment that is very dynamic and full of challenges every day. It’s never boring and lets me learn continuously.

Chat

Chris, good to speak to you, how are you?

Splendid – I´m ready for a fabulous journey with you my dear.

How did you find ista?

Actually I bumped into ista when I was working in my former job as a software consultant and business developer.

What convinced you to come to ista?

To be honest the people I met before and during my interview. I was sitting in the lobby and everyone was greeting me while passing through. It was an atmosphere of friendliness that is hard to find these days. Later on during the interview Markus and Sacha (still my colleagues today) were so kind and welcoming so my only answer could be yes!

Who are your favourite people to work with?

Beside the team in Essen I truly love to work with the TecHub team in Poland. We have accomplished great missions together. Of course my direct team Clarissa, Deborah and Annabell (you can meet them left and right ;-) which I´m so proud of every day: Together they take on a lot of challenging homework that needs to be dealt with.

People supporting people, no boundaries, commitment – less bullshit, less politics.

Right now I have the opportunity to use my entire toolbox of what I have learned in the past 22 years. That is why I love to go to work every day.

Martin Espeter
Head of IT Field Services
Chat

Martin good to speak to you, how are you?

Thx, doing great. A lot of work to do but this is how I like it. 

What convinced you to come to ista?

I just had a good feeling about this company in the recruiting process. And that feeling did not go away so far.

Who are your favourite people to work with?

Open minded, ambitious people with hunger to learn more. It also helps to have just the right sense of humor, especially when it comes to laugh about yourself. 

What was your first project at ista?

I was assigned with the evaluation of Jira in 2012. One of my all-time favorite projects. It started small and got really big over the years. 

What does the future of IT look like to you?

I think the IT evolves in trends that sometimes repeat themselves. In general, I see a spectrum between bottom-up approaches and top-down approaches. This holds for technology as well as for organization. Successful people will pick the right tools and methods for the job at hand. And there will always be some hype around to keep it interesting.
My personal hope is that we are going to see a really open web with clear standards and same conditions for everyone. I believe we lost a bit of the original values that made it so great and successful in its early years.
