I have been in touch with onoff Telecom since 2015, talking about employment possibilities here. At the time I was not sure and the company I worked for convinced me to stay with them.

I wanted to grow professionally and knew that excellent software development practices are constantly promoted here.
Q: How has it been so far?
Well, the first thing you notice is that it’s a completely new technology. I’ve never had any experience with telecommunications and there is a lot of things I have to learn.
