Zita is a psychologist and recruits manpower for other countries as an HR-professional. If you’re looking for work, don’t hesitate to contact her. And if your soul is in pain, don’t hold that back either. What is the best part of your job? Usually, the best part of people’s work is when they go home. But working from KAPTÁR it’s a completely different story. I can hardly get myself to leave. I work the way I want, I always have a different „work partners“ sitting next to me, I can meet lots of people and KAPTÁR’s location is amazing as well. What did you hate most about working from home? I felt like Robinson without a Friday, most of all on Fridays! :) What have been your best/funniest KAPTÁR moments so far? Playing Bingo, pancakes, the drinking nights, the massages, great conversations in the kitchen and of course the leftover muffins after some...

Antal Vig is the managing director of VIG.studios and an online marketing specialist. If you want people to notice your product or your service which you offer, Antal and his team could help you to get better access. What was your weirdest networking experience? Well, there is obviously that weird feeling that you should talk with everyone but no one knows how to start. For some reason, I always start with the weirdest unrelated to the theme of the night stuff and bring the whole conversation into a weird way :). Happened too many times that I can keep count on … What is your most important life lesson, since you became an entrepreneur/freelancer? That discipline is much more important than I initially thought. Especially if you’re working for yourself. Discipline = Freedom What is the best part of your job? That I can work how and when I want. And that I can offer the requested external ideas on topics. What excites you most about new challenges? The opportunity to learn something new or get to that level I always wanted to play in. But then after that excitement is gone I mostly hate the challenge but do it anyways :) What was the most annoying about working at home? The quietness and all the unfinished things that you can or should do. Perfect excuses to do those first and not work...

I’ve been working for my ex-company for more than 5 years now (a company dealing with film licenses etc. and seated only 50 meters away from here) and time has come for a chance to find something different, more interesting. We’d known each other with Áron for a long time now and therefore I’ve been following Kaptár’s story also since it’s opening and I was very much sympathizing how passionately it’s been founded and run since. We had a few chats earlier and ended up with the positive conclusion of giving us a try working together. Plus stayed close to Basil Ica just to make sure. :) What were your funniest/best KAPTÁR moments? First things first, my new colleagues are great. Then it is always fun to accidentally meet old friends in KAPTÁR which already happened a few times over the week, and also, the openness of people around here is super. What is the best part of your job? That it is new, full of challenges and learning plus that I can get to know new people. What was the most annoying about working at home? That I have never had the chance to do such a thing. :) I started at Kaptár just this week and none of my previous jobs offered such an option before. Maybe here I’ll have the chance to...

David AhDoot – KAPTÁR faces

I’m a software developer from Los Angeles, California, though I’ve been a digital nomad for 18 months now. After spectacularly failing to learn Spanish during my 8 months in South America, I’m now failing to learn all of the European languages I’m encountering at a world-class pace.   What is your most important life lesson, since you became a nomad? Say yes to (almost) everything! What is the best part of your job? I’m a software developer and the thing that most people don’t realize about software development is that it can be quite artistic. Not in the traditional sense of the word, but in that there is a lot of creativity and elegance involved in writing good code. Despite not having a traditional “artistic” stretch of DNA in my cells, this brings me satisfaction almost every day. What were your funniest/best KAPTÁR moments? When Matild thought my name was Diarrhio...

KAPTÁR Success Stories – Kray Zsuzsa

Hi Zsuzsa, thanks for the interview! Could you please introduce yourself? What should we know about you? Thank you Bálint! I studied environment research and have worked in this branch ever since, which I’m pretty proud of. On the other hand it also starts to feel natural for me, even though it is not all around the world. From this perspective I consider myself lucky. The opportunities keep coming and there is a nice work-flow in my life. Since I left University, my work has been about sustainability, raising awareness and communication. The best example for this is developing a curriculum. This sounds exciting, tell us more about it… I just did some summer camp programs for the Education Agency. These are programs of some days, for 1.-11. classes, full of activities around sustainability. Just to mention the most popular ones: ethical consumption, global outlook, eco footprint, recycling and the waste pyramid. But you know, the best waste is the one that doesn’t even arise. We’ve been hearing all over again for a while that the earth will run out of resources and that there is no way back from that. But still, I don’t really see that anything happens… Everyone knows about it, but hardly anyone notes it. By being one of the few, doesn’t it sometimes feel like fighting windmills? Yes sometimes. But I can’t do anything about it. It’s like there are different forces that pull the same thing, just from different sides. Sometimes the other side is pulling to strongly. But what can I do? I get up the next day and pull even stronger...
