«The idea of working for an IT market leader in a fast-paced, energetic environment was what initially drew me to Veeam. Once I met with the local leadership team and our VP of HR got more insight into the company, future direction and culture, I was hooked. In addition, the fact that every person who interviewed me seemed to have a high level of engagement and passion for the company also ensured it was an easy choice to accept the role when it was offered!»
