KAPTÁR face – Zsófi Stier

KAPTÁR face – Zsófi Stier

Zsófi recently joined KAPTÁR as a host to leave her home office a little and get social again :) She’s a technical translator and translates from English and German into Hungarian. She works for certain clients in specific topics (software user interfaces, help texts, marketing texts) and for some clients according to their needs (e.g. private letters, advertisement, users guides for commercial products).   What is most exciting about new challenges? When I face a new challenge, the start always seems a bit tough, but maybe the best thing about it is how your brain can magically adjust and build new skills out of nothing in order to help you master the obstacles. It helps you to shift into a new way and this way I can creatively solve tasks.   What have been the biggest milestones in your life? When I packed my things and left for a foreign country far far away (China) to do an internship. I didn’t know anyone and couldn’t speak the language :) This was such a formative experience for me that it completely changed my way of thinking about this world.   What did you hate most about working from home? My work is pretty lonely, you just sit there with your pc and only communicate with your clients or the project managers via email sometimes. I missed a community and teamwork. I used to really love these things at my former job. So the idea of KAPTÁR appeared ;)...

KAPTÁR face – Gábor Kőrös

I deal with business consulting in the area of strategy, business models and innovation, but mostly I help companies to find their problems, to structure their way of thinking and to enhance their work productivity. I have experience in finances, I worked in sales and recently in the innovation team of an international bank. My current client is a foreign fintech company, the ModulTrade Ltd, which develops smart contract, blockchain based e-commerce solutions.   What is the best about your job? I love when I manage to find the real source of a problem in the middle of a complex and chaotic situation and to recognize the relation of the main influences in its structure. Besides that, I mostly enjoy being in a flow.   What do you find the most exciting about new challenges? The beginnings. When we start to discover a process without any kind of preconception. I love to start new things because I think it helps to keep being open and creative.   What is the fastest way to mess up a business? I could give many answers to that, but I think the fastest way, is to over-plan without taking any actual actions. There is a quote from Dwight D. Eisenhowertől, which is very true in the business world: Plans Are Worthless, But Planning Is...

KAPTÁR success stories – Zsófia Barcza

Today’s guest of KAPTÁR’s Success Story is Zsófi Barcza, the founder of Syntesia Medical Communications and one of the ancient KAPTÁR inhabitants. Zsófi is a medical writer and mostly works for doctors and pharmacists. Thank you for joining in our invitation, Zsófi. How has all of this started? How have you found this market niche? The three words that are most typical for me are science, languages, and music. Fortunately, I went to a great secondary school and when it was time to decide about a career path, I thought I could do any of those. Eventually, I chose the medical path, because I could still deal with languages and music in my free time. Many people told me how nice it is „that a doctor deals with the arts just as a hobby“, but it turned out later that these hobbies were way too important to me. I had some subjects in medical school, which were really interesting, but the other two paths became more dominant by the end of my studies. After getting my diploma I started to study technical translation and interpretation which took 2 years…   Sorry for interrupting you, but if I got it right you have a doctors degree? Have you also worked as a doctor? Yes, I did. I worked as a doctor for 3 years. I always say that I squeezed 8 years into those 3 years after my graduation. (laughs). I graduated as a technical translator and interpreter (2years), I did a professional exam as a physician, which took me 3 years. Besides that, I did a part-time job in...

KAPTÁR face – József Kabai

I’m the managing director of Távügyvitel Kft., which offers online accounting for companies. Within the company, I’m responsible for marketing and the development of our online marketing system. Thanks to my online work, I’ve travelled a lot in the past years. Now I prefer hiking in the mountains around Budapest and I rediscovered reading!   The most important life lesson, since you’ve become a coworker? Despite the huge freedom at work, one needs some frames.   What did you hate most about working from home? In general, I like working at home, because I can do some housework in between and cook good meals. The problem is if that’s the programme every day…   How can one destroy a business the fastest way? With „hope-marketing“. Like: „My services are good, so I hope they will find me etc.”   The KAPTÁR team is very nice. It’s very true that „KAPTÁR likes you!“ It has a good effect on me that everyone around me works hard. I also like to have so many options here: I can sit, lie, stand or even take a...

Many celebrities and famous people have worked at us, one of them let us uncover him. We are pleased to introduce you Santa:   „I’m Niklas, a developer from lAppland. I work on a global database and we currently released the 12.06. version: This means not less than 7,5 billion names and data. So you better watch out, because I know everything about you! Just kidding. I like to mumble old jokes through my beard. By the way: Did you know, who was the first hipster in the world? My work is also my passion, but sometimes I get enough. Then I need a place where I can be productive and free. KAPTÁR is such a place for me: good boys and good girls, huge windows, that look to the street (I kinda like to put my stuff in the window), flexible packages, cool spaces in the summer and warm and cosy in the winter! I found them on the internet, which I recommend to you, too:...
