After I worked at virtual7 for a year, we went to Germany to develop a core team so that we could make sure that the Romanian site would grow in a stable and healthy way. We were just four employees at that time with the desire to further improve our abilities and knowledge so we can develop the site to be able to take on bigger projects. Throughout my time at virtual7, I worked on a wide variety of projects. It never got boring. Each project was unique and exciting in its own way. I was able to learn something new every time and test my own personal limits. Within a very short period of time, this allowed me to gain experience in a wide variety of contexts and to be assigned to different customers. Not only did I develop professionally, but I also underwent a very personal development during this time and got the opportunity to learn different programming languages through my work. While some of my university colleagues complained about having the same work environment and worked only on small parts of applications working, I was able to understand how a project is structured from top to bottom. In large companies, the individual components of a project, such as operations, testing and customer requirements, were usually lost in the hierarchy or complex project teams. This was not the case at virtual7 even back then, and this experience of the customer environment, different locations, and a wide variety of project and technology requirements was very important to me. I never had the feeling that my workday was monotonous, much more I had the feeling of working in a completely new job several times a year.
