When thinking of starting the next chapter of your career, starting a new job can be a daunting prospect. How much support will I have? Will I be thrown into the deep end? What will my team be like? That’s why we at CA want to shed some light on what it’s like to start a new job with us with the help of a real life CA Technologies new starter. Here we have a profile from one of our young new Associate Software Engineers, as part of our careers blog series, ‘Why I Joined CA’.
Meet Tetiana Gavrylova
Originally from Kiev, Ukraine, Tetiana moved to Prague in 2015 with her husband. She is now an Associate Software Engineer. ‘I’ve always been into Information Technologies, Engineering, Mathematics and Exact Sciences, but didn’t have an opportunity to apply that passion to my job before I joined CA. I like to learn something new every day, and search for incomplete things to make them perfect.’
When she isn’t working, Tetiana enjoys travelling and discovering new places. To relax, she loves to read books and seek interesting facts. When she’s not relaxing she enjoys a spot of hiking. Her favourite place in the Prague office is the spacious kitchen and her cubicle, which she has personalized to make it feel like home!
‘I’m traveling as much as I can and hope that someday it will be hard to find a place on the Earth I’ve never been to!’
Why CA Technologies?
Before starting work at CA, Tetiana lived locally to the Prague office and fell in love with it straight away. When it was time to find a job in her new home, she knew exactly where to apply.
‘Every day I was drinking my coffee, looking at people working at the business park, and dreaming that one day I would be one of them.’
Now that she is a part of the CA team, Tetiana can employ her skills in software engineering and learn new ones every day. Her new role provides her with invaluable resources and help to ensure that her learning process is comfortable and enjoyable.
‘I like that I’m allowed to try different tasks and even roles within a team, which allows to see what I’m better at.’
What is starting a new job at CA Technologies like?
When she began her work at CA, Tetiana had a lot of questions since everything was new to her. The company always ensured that new starters are provided with as much support as they need to make sure they feel comfortable in their fresh role.
‘I had an appointed buddy, managers, and additional team support, who are ready at any minute to give me a helping hand if I asked.’
The DNA principles of CA is something that has impressed Tetiana, as she can see them in practice each day. They apply to all aspects of working life, allowing staff to achieve success and work to the best of their ability.
‘Each of the DNA principles is a part of a working process, which I can see happening every day. They perfectly demonstrate how a great company and product can be formed successfully.’
CA’s office in Prague attracts talent on a global scale, which means they provide great support to those relocating from another part of the world. Tetiana enjoys this aspect of her work environment, as it allows her and her team to appreciate and learn from a range of cultures.
‘I like the multicultural environment at CA and how people from different parts of the world communicate, understand, support, and respect each other.’
We’re delighted to see that Tetiana has had a great start to her life at CA Technologies. We asked how she would describe her #LifeAtCA.
‘I wake up every morning wanting to go to work and I’m excited about what I’ll learn today – that says something!’
