“MindWave motivates and allows me to work at my best”
Effie Santarmou - Senior Test Automation Engineer
As a Test Automation Engineer I optimize the quality of our work. I minimize steps and try to automate as much as possible by combining available technologies.”
Efstathia - or Effie - has been working in the IT sector for over 16 years, 3 of which for MindWave. She is passionate about continuous personal and professional growth.
No longer a woman in a man's world
"When I was a student at the engineering college, I was an outsider. There were about 240 students, of whom only 10 were women. I studied electrical engineering, then I worked as a biomedical engineer... I changed paths many times and now I am here. Nowadays, the IT sector has evolved a lot. At MindWave we have about as many women as men, I love how our sector has evolved."
MindWave is like a healthy family
"MindWave feels like a real home where open communication prevails. People can speak freely during meetings and there is also room to hear how someone is really doing. There is always open communication between colleagues. I can express my fears, faults and feelings. It’s like talking to your family. We are also a very horizontal organization. I don’t feel micropolitics. Nor is there a gap between the more technical and administrative colleagues. We're one team, just working on different parts.”
Growing together with clients
"The work environment and customers motivate me tremendously. I feel that colleagues at MindWave share the same values and bring them to other companies. They distinguish us. On a personal level, I can see that I add value to my customers' business and I also appreciate their feedback. In fact, by helping each other we are growing together."
A blooming future
“I see a blooming future for both myself and others at MindWave. Our company actively encourages both personal and professional growth. I can improve my soft and technical skills at any time. Nowadays I’m working for a dedicated client. But MindWave is growing and is establishing more and more professional connections. Within that growth I see, I feel that there will always be a place for me to share my knowledge and values with both existing and new clients.”
