Centric IT Solutions Lithuania is growing rapidly - this year they are forming a new Software Engineering team, which will work with various projects of international importance. The charismatic team leader Dainius agreed to share his thoughts: where the idea to form a team came from, what people are they looking for, how they see the team in the future and what values are most important to both him and the company.
- Dainius, where did the idea to create Software Engineering team come from?
- Centric branch in Kaunas has been operating for three years. During this period, the organization has noticed that we have excellent specialists here in Kaunas; our Cloud and DevOps team has proved that they can implement even the most complex projects, such as Nebula. In other words, we have earned recognition at Centric internationally.
Till now, the main Software Engineering activities have been carried out in one of the largest Centric departments in Romania, which has been operating for more than 10 years and employs over 300 people. However, the services and projects in the country have expanded, so to help succeed our colleagues with high-quality projects, we are creating a Software Engineering Department in Kaunas, which will help to implement the ongoing projects and plans for the whole international Software Engineering team.
- Is it easy to create a new team?
- There are currently eight members in the team: the professionals who get the job done from start to finish and create value for clients. A new colleague recently joined us: a Senior Full Stack programmer with nine years of experience. Part of the team are post-student-practice colleagues who have worked with an in-house product. The other part is the internal staff of the company, who decided to change their positions horizontally and join this new team.
We are currently actively contributing to existing and new projects from the R&D department. Since Centric has a range of almost all possible products, I have no doubt that my team will have a lot to do. I believe, that a very interesting year is coming. I also hope that in the future, we may even have our own products.
