How long have you been on board at Pyramid?

I’ve been part of the Pyramid team since 2008. . I started as a quality assurance employee. In this position, I was able to live out my interest in computers day after day, by inspecting ready-to-ship devices in detail and even switching them on. Even after several years, this still gave me a lot of pleasure. . Finally, at the end of 2021, I got the chance to start working as production manager. That challenge appeals to me, and I want to develop further.

What made you decide to pursue a career in IT?

I got my first own computer, a Commodore 64, at the age of 6 from my parents. I was fascinated by the technology from the beginning. Although I used that machine most of the time to play, over the years I felt my way forward bit by bit.

Later I got my second computer. Later I got my second computer. It had an Intel Pentium CPU, and it ran Microsoft DOS and Windows 95. I could use this computer for many of my hobbies: listening to and making music, playing games, creating graphics – just being creative. That was the real cornerstone of my decision to go into the IT industry.

How did you become aware of Pyramid back then?

After completing alternative community service in 2007, I heard about a job opening at Pyramid from a private employment agency. . At first, I was skeptical about the whole thing. Ichtershausen? Where even is that? Is it in Thuringia at all?

Today, I’m glad I said yes. Because I realized after just a few days how well my vocational training as an IT specialist in the field of systems integration fit this position.

What does your workday look like?

In fact, in the morning I never know exactly what it’s going to be like. Of course, I have daily routines, I have a bunch of conversations, and I always keep my eyes and ears open. Our diverse and constantly evolving product range always involves new challenges and tasks to master. But I feel well prepared – I have fantastic colleagues. Together, we’re a super-strong team, and we solve every problem.

Did you learn anything about yourself during your time at Pyramid?

Yes! Every time I thought nothing could surprise me at work any more, Pyramid comes up with new technology that amazes me. At first, we produced mostly 1U and 2U servers and tower computers. Later, we added unusual appliances that were customized for very specific purposes. Today, we produce complex kiosk systems that can be found in the big fast food and supermarket chains, enabling self-service!

Through Pyramid, I learned that there’s no standing still. This also benefited my personal development and still does.

Please describe Pyramid briefly and to the point!

Pyramid is as loyal to me as an employer as I am to it as an employee. I’m proud to be a member of the Pyramid team.

How would you describe the atmosphere at Pyramid?

I really appreciate the fact that there is a face for every name here. I can talk to my colleagues on an equal footing at any time, including across locations. People know each other. That creates a personal and friendly atmosphere that I like.

Your three things for the desert island, what would they be?

  • Salt
  • My ukulele
  • A sun hat! Indispensable with my “hairstyle”.

If you could pick one superpower, what would it be?

I would love to be the mighty “vacuum cleaner man”! Is there anything more annoying than dusting? Seriously! A quick flick of the finger – and the dust is gone. If you think about it deeply, that’s the only useful superpower. No discussion.

If you could work in another department for a day, where would it be and why?

After 13 years of working in quality assurance, I have many fond memories of this department. I would step in and help out here again at any time.
