Katharina Feiertag, Software Developer at IKARUS Security Software

Three years ago, Katharina Feiertag found her place in the “Client Team” and started working on the company’s oldest product: IKARUS anti.virus, or “AV” for short. In the past, “AV” was called “VU”, which stood for IKARUS virus.utilities. It was IKARUS’ first security product and one of the first anti-virus programs worldwide. IKARUS anti.virus was created in an acute need situation out of a private passion: A customer reported a problem with the purchased software that turned out as a worm. IKARUS removed the malware – and from this time, IKARUS specialized in this area.

Katharina Feiertag has been a computer scientist since her school days. During her education, she decided to focus on IT security at every opportunity. However, software programming always played a big part in her life. At IKARUS, she found the chance to combine both areas optimally: “We work on different projects, use many different technologies, have a lot of freedom in the implementation and room for new ideas. Every day is different!”

However, the job only becomes perfect with the “right” colleagues:

“Every day there are new challenges, new features, interesting and at the same time demanding bugs and a lot to learn”, says Katharina Feiertag: “All this works very well in our team. We work very closely together and learn from each other. Everyone brings different experiences and knowledge to the team, so we can exchange ideas about everything. We work together on the projects and everyone does ‘everything’. Nevertheless, everyone has his or her specialty.”
