It’s not an easy task to sum up 14 years and to explain how I ended up doing that many things, so let’s start at the very beginning.
Being raised in a multi generation accountant family meant only one thing to me, following the beaten track and study accounting. Since it is somehow in my DNA, I had no difficulties with numbers and get dragged into the financial world quite early and real quickly.
I got my first and second job even before finishing the college. Both were accountant positions and both gave me the opportunity to see all the aspects of accountancy from data entry to year-end procedure. As an extra bonus, I got introduced to SAP. Although my colleagues called this software Sorrow and Pain, I found this complex ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system very exciting and intriguing. And this deepening interest led me to the next phase of my career.
In 2006, I joined to a then-newly founded Shared Service Center aimed to transfer all payroll activities from the subsidiary countries to Hungary after implementing SAP. As a team member, later as a team leader of this operation I was relocated first to the UK (Rugby), then to Ireland (Dublin) and SAP became my bread and butter. That’s no exaggeration, in the college, I even wrote my final project on the controlling module of the system.
The next career move was not only changing jobs, but changing country, too. I moved to Cyprus and started to work as a financial manager at a well-known non-governmental organization called Future Worlds Center. It was certainly a challenging position. I had never woked in the non-profit sector before, never seen an EU project in my life and there had been no in-house financial department in the organization. Despite all these, I left Cyprus with the feeling of satisfaction, the feeling of a job well done.
After dealing with financial issues for over a decade, I couldn’t deny the feeling that it was time to change, time to try something new, something different. So, the decision was made, I would be my own boss. Teamed up with an incredibly talented web designer (and I guarantee that I am not biased) and her professional network, TACO – Talking Colors Web Design Studio came to life. I’ve never been an IT guru, so I wasn’t sure how helpful I can be beyond the financial, administrative tasks. But when I started to help out with user testing and copywriting, I liked them both. And there you go, the latest phase of my career.
To cut the long story short, now I act as the CEO of our web design studio doing all the managing, administration and bossing around, but not only that... I perform usability evaluation.
