Norbert Kujbus - Site Manager
I wanted to escape from multis because I was tied up with the lots of unproductive processes, the slow decision making, the culture where everyone wants to show their value in a cramped way that makes the whole culture unproductive, and weird. I enjoyed the parts of my career when I got real empowerment and true responsibility to build something new, a new development site, a new product or a new process. I love solving problem from end-to-end that requires to understand the needs, then planning, get the buy in, and finally execute. So why should I join to a multi again and being responsible for a specific part only?
So, I met with Meindert and Quincy with these things in my mind. They were very sympathetic because they were open, honest and direct. Their vision and value matched very well with mine. I trusted them. I left the discussions with positive mind, I felt motivated and excited again after a long time. My brain started to think about how I would approach their goals, what I would do first to make it successful and I couldn’t stop thinking about these. Joining to a new company is having some risk of course but it’s not comparable to the huge opportunities it brings. We agreed quickly then I left work some vacation with full of motivation, excitement and happiness.
how did we start
The start was really energetic, even more energetic then I expected. And when I say “the start” then I mean the next day right after I accepted the offer. I counted 58 email conversations with Meindert mainly from my holiday in Malta. J The interview process of the first team had already been in progress however everything else like environment, equipment and infrastructure was behind. The first team will start in 1.5 month – Meindert said. Wow, what a challenge! – I said. For instance, if you now the lead time of getting lease line internet in downtown Debrecen then you would say it’s impossible. Another example is the average delivery time of high-end laptops, find a team who can start immediately and rebuild few things in the new office, buying furniture, etc. – everything should be ready by 1st September when the first team of 5 will start.
And we did it finally, on time, with a fantastic result! I enjoyed all single minutes of this period. We get to know each other better and better and we resonated in the same frequency.
