Among IT professionals, Adacta is known as a great place to work for anyone wanting to advance their career while achieving a healthy work-life balance. To discuss more about life at Adacta we sat down with Valerija Marence, the newly appointed Head of HR for AdInsure.
Adacta has a relaxed but professional techie vibe. We are an IT company, where people dress for comfort and open workspaces promote collaboration. Our meetings are fast-paced and filled with the exchange and discussion of ideas. We try to use processes to be more efficient but we are also very nimble. Upskilling and speed drive gain recognition but we also value work-life balance.
Diversity makes us stronger, more creative and successful. Such a diverse environment offers a good opportunity to work and meet people in the same professions in different countries, to become familiar with their culture, work and lifestyle. It is also a great way to practice or pick up a new language.
At Adacta, we strive to create a friendly working environment. Our employees can work flexible hours, have team building activities and lots of learning opportunities. Lots of great ideas emerge over free coffee discussions in our kitchen. We unwind in the games room, relax with Friday massages from a visiting massage therapist, and stay healthy with fruity snacks and our sports club. We have an open-door policy, lunch with the CEO and everything from birthday celebrations to visits from Father Christmas for our employees' kids.
Besides the great work-life balance, our new employees mostly like the international IT environment with a lot of expertise in different areas and many opportunities for professional and personal growth.
A new employee should be able to see the company and the client’s goals as their own goals and should do his/her best to achieve them. For us, a great candidate shows not only skills but also passion for the position, and emotional intelligence is as important as skills and experience.
The hiring process begins with the identification of the need to fill a position and ends with a candidate accepting a job offer. The hiring process usually has three stages:
Be self-confident and ready to prove your skills and experience with examples, show your passion and have the answer to the following question: Why do you see yourself filling this position?
Yes, by being agile 😊. For us, it means being able to adapt to change and being willing to grow, actively looking for solutions, and to trust and help your team members to achieve your goals.
