People of Scale: Elizabeth on Smiles, Infrastructure and Teleportation
“Here at ScaleFocus, you learn every day – especially if you talk to the people and are not afraid to ask for advice and help. If I have to describe my field and my work in three words, they would be: dynamic, interesting and challenging.”
Tell us about yourself and your work.
Why did you join Scalefocus?
How would you describe your team?
United, always smiling and super helpful all the time. I had great mentors in ScaleFocus – people who taught me a lot and walked me through the processes with great patience and understanding. I always felt comfortable asking questions or for something to be explained to me. That’s what helped me feel more comfortable as a professional and build up my experience.
Describe your job with three words.
How do you pick yourself up in difficult times – professionally and personally?
How do you deal with challenging projects such as this?
Do you feel inspired by your team?
What inspires you right now?
If you could choose one superpower, what would it be?
What do you love to do outside of work?
I love high-speed cars and motorcycles, it’s kind of a passion! I am soon starting motorcycle lessons myself. I love drawing and I do it whenever I have time. I draw a lot of ship anchors. And I also have great admiration and love for the sea – that’s why I took part in the Summer Vibes initiative this year and it was awesome.
If you could give one piece of advice to someone who is now embarking on the path of Infrastructure Administration, what would it be?
To never give up, even when it seems hard. And bonus advice – to always speak to his or her colleagues because that makes all the difference sometimes. To be able to learn every day you need to be open but also choose a company where this is possible, where there are diversity and positivity within the teams. I think I found just that here.
