In our monthly section "people from our company" you will get to know the empower® team. Our employees introduce themselves and talk about their beginnings, their everyday work and everything they have to say about themselves. This month you will get to know our Project Manager Tanja Linden.
"2011 I was looking for an apprenticeship. I came across an online job advertisement for empower®. I applied. 04.07.2011 was the start for (so far) 7 years at empower®. It felt like home. Everyone was friendly and the contact with each other was very familiar from the beginning. I liked the environment, the people and my potential tasks.
Today I work as a project manager, but also in product development. Technically as well as from the user's point of view I am above all a specialist for all topics around Word and Outlook. New, technical challenges, satisfied customers, dear colleagues, new topics and seeing results in form of software are things that motivate me every day and show me again and again that I have found the right job. And if that isn’t enough motivation to wake up, I always have an energy drink with me in the office, because unlike software development, I couldn't develop a preference for coffee.
By the way, this also applies to carnival - even though I work in Cologne, this tradition has never inspired me. I benefit from the fact that I commute every day from Leverkusen to Cologne, where carnival is a little less important. After work, when I arrive in Leverkusen, I enjoy doing sports, meeting friends and acquaintances, caring my cat, playing computer and Playstation games or watching a series."
