People and motivations behind IKARUS
International Sales Manager
“Knowledge and awareness are just as important as the right technical protection measures,” says Christoph Barszczewski: “The more knowledge I can share with our partners, the more effectively they can support their customers. It is one of my great passions to look behind the tricks of scammers!
“Every day there are new challenges, new features, interesting and at the same time demanding bugs and a lot to learn!”
“We don’t just want to satisfy our customers, we want to impress them. We achieve this with clear goals and by taking pleasure in our work!”
HR Business Partner
“IT and OT security are industries with excellent future prospects. Experts in these areas are welcome and much sought-after in many companies!”
International Sales Manager
“To be able to advise clients optimally, it is important to understand their initial situation, their requirements and their goals”!
Head of Marketing & Product Management
“In IT security it never gets boring – new technologies and systems always require adapted security concepts. Already during the cooperation with IKARUS, I appreciated the unbureaucratic solutions and the teamwork!”
Senior System Engineer
“IT security is one of the most exciting and also fast-moving sectors of the IT industry. Every day I learn something new, because even the other side never sleeps and invents new things to put us and the systems to the test!”
“Our goal is to encourage ministries and educational institutions to take action, train teachers, sensitize parents, inform interested parties and train talented people,” says Joe Pichlmayr: “IT security urgently needs new talent and therefore an appropriate education system – also to strengthen Austria and Vienna as an ICT location and keep them competitive!”
It is important to us to offer a stable and productive working environment. Therefore, we do NOT have all-in contracts, but flexible working hours in a flexitime model and moderate core hours, which makes us a family-friendly employer, among other things.
In addition to the usual festivities in summer and winter, we get together for regular events at team dinners, team breakfasts, sports activities, LAN & release parties and many more occasions. We also facilitate participation in various events to promote talent, knowledge and exchange.
Depending on the team and the area of responsibility, you can agree with your manager on the ideal mix of office and home office days.
A sweet treat in between, branded shirts or useful gadgets for the home office–we can always think of gifts to please our employees.
We encourage personal growth and development. Therefore, every employee is invited to use up to 10% of their working time for individual development and training.
To stay healthy, you will find a colourful mix of fruit and vegetables in our office kitchen at the beginning of the week.
Our security solutions not only ensure the security of our customers, they are also freely available to our employees.
Warm and refreshing drinks are always available for breaks or small and large celebrations.
We work with many German-speaking clients, but especially our development team is very international. We speak English and/or German with each other–adapted to the preferences of each individual and each team.
