What it's like working at Actum

Michal Seidl

Senior .NET Developer Kentico

I have been in Actum for four years now and I still like the work here. Each new project has different requirements, which brings new work ideas and experiences. But what is best about Actum is the team of people I meet and work with every day, so I hope I will stay here for quite some time.

Jakub Zavřel

Front-End Developer

It’s great at Actum. We have a hot chocolate vending machine and I am allowed to watch Czech TV as well. I work on my experience and knowledge with the help of my more experienced colleagues during our code reviews and front-end meetings. We also have internal training programs in place to help me. The front-end team is always open to the newest technologies available and we can call GitHub our home. I can also use English while communicating with clients or with our company teacher from San Francisco.

Michal Aron

Senior Java Developer

I really like the "anti-corporate" approach in Actum. You can really feel the responsibility of everyone in the team for the project. There is a real will and effort of the developers to do things right, not just to satisfy the nearest manager above you like in many big enterprises. We have opportunity to use cutting-edge technologies and to build up best practices of whole Java team, which is relatively new. Also we have an opportunity to work on a "greenfield" project with high level of independence and right to make crucial architectural decisions. This is a big challenge for us, but our team is definitely not for someone who would rather like to work in a more "relaxed" way with not much stress and no challenges :-)

Lukáš Karas

QA Team Lead

As a member of the QA team, I try to make sure that the software which we hand over to the customer meets high quality criteria. This is what we manage to achieve with the help of automated tests. I also work with a number of other tools that improve and facilitate my work (such as JIRA, in which we can effectively organize our project). As a member of the agile Scrum team I also have the opportunity to influence the quality of active communication with team members and customers. We also have the opportunity to meet customers in person as part of our trips to Germany and Romania.
