What our people say
I joined Transputec in September 2016 as a 1st line Servicedesk analyst. I handled administrative tasks for the team (schedule and reporting) and was eventually promoted to Service Desk Team Lead in 2018. I have managed our Shared Desk ever since. While managing the team, I have always shared the motto: “if you do something, do it right the first time; else, you will just do it all over again”. Being in the technical support field for 16 years in different roles from VoIP administrator to onsite IT lead has allowed me to gather extensive knowledge (and accumulated a lot of gray hairs in the process).
Transputec has been a family where I was able to learn and impart knowledge based on my experience in the field. I work on sound systems for home and car setup in my leisure time – Bass is life.
My name is Almazhan (Alma) Kapan. I am a recent Computer Science graduate and I was interning at Transputec as a Computer Science (Software Engineer) Intern.
I joined Transputec to gain industry experience and knowledge in software testing and different testing methods at a large company. I am very grateful for the provided learning experience and onboarding support at the company.
My name is Helene Solvam and I am in my second year at Høsykolen Kristiania in Oslo, studying Human Recourses, Organizational Psychology and Leadership.
I chose to do an internship in HR for my forth semester mainly because I wanted some real life experience in the field.
In my internship I have been working both remotely and in person, which has taught me a lot about what an everyday work life is like in both ways. Working in the HR department in Transputec has given me so much relevant experience. As an intern I have assisted with ongoing projects in the department, such as working to improve and implement onboarding platforms, and write blogs related to PR and recruitment. I have also generally assisted HR wherever I have been needed.
Transputec have done a great job in making me feel welcomed, valued and supported throughout my internship, and while working on these tasks I really have felt like a real and significant part of the company.
This experience has been very important for me, and it have made me feel very excited and motivated about going forward with my studies in Human Resources. Therefore I would recommend it to anyone who are interested in HR, as well as working in a tech centred company.
As a recruiter, you have to always be in touch with everyone in the company across all teams and functions, I am very grateful for this opportunity and delighted to work as a recruiter for Transputec. I have been nothing but extremely positive journey so far. The culture here is very different to what I have experienced elsewhere; it is fun, people take responsibility for their work and improve their learning as they go.
When talking to candidates, you should make an effort to present the company in a very attractive way, I am always very happy that I am genuinely inviting candidates to a great place, where they can grow, become a significant contributor to the company and get a chance to better their skills or grow into the professional they always wanted.
I joined Transputec in August 2014. Looking back from when I started in the IT industry in 2008, my years of experience in customer service, tele-sales, technical support, and back office support have taught me a lot, and Transputec is where I thrived. I like to keep myself updated on the constant evolution of technology. Staying up to date adds valuable knowledge. I believe in helping others without the expectation of recognition or reward.
I’m a fan of Doctor Who and any movie or show that involves time travel, as well as medieval-themed movies and shows. I love playing online CCGs like Magic: The Gathering Arena, The Elder Scrolls: Legends, Gwent, and Hearthstone.
My first 6 months at Transputec have been nothing short of amazing. I have been looking to break into the IT industry for a while now and now that I am here, I am absolutely loving the journey. I spend a large majority of my time on the service desk for Woodland Trust or working on the BAM laptop builds as part of the Config team. Working on the BAM laptop builds has been a good introduction of what’s to come. While it is an easy process, we do still encounter some errors and that’s what I find interesting about this process. I enjoy finding ways around some of these errors we encounter and finding suitable solutions.
When first starting out on the service desk I was nervous, but those nerves were instantly gone due to how welcoming the WT service desk team was. I know I can go to any of them with any queries/questions and get an instant response. I will soon be heading out onsite for Woodland Trust and I strongly believe this will also be a step in the right direction for my knowledge and understanding of how an IT department operates in a big organization.
I recently started my career in tech, and so far, my journey has been nothing but incredible. The tech space has been male-dominated for a long time. This is something I was aware of before joining the industry. I’ve heard the same echoed by other women who have had long and arduous journeys within the sector, facing discrimination and hardships because of this. I am proud and privileged to say that I have had a positive experience and safe environment with Transputec. It is because of women who overcame challenges and paved the way for other women to excel that I have been able to pursue this career and build my passion. I see myself and other younger women as examples of things changing for the better. Women in Transputec have welcomed me into this industry, helping me every step of the way, showing support and strength, encouraging me to challenge myself and overcome social barriers. All the contributions and sacrifices do bring change. We still have a long way to go, but I believe slowly but surely we will get there, and I hope I can set a positive example and support other women to bring change and rise together.
My apprenticeship at Transputec has been going well. I have learnt many different skills from my off the job learning to on the job. I can use what I have learnt from the apprenticeship and apply it to my job role, whether it be troubleshooting or an issue to understanding how a backend network works. This role has really helped me gain a variety of soft skills such speaking to users and communicating and working in a team. It has allowed me to grow within my role and outside of it gaining more confidence and communication skills to use in my day-to-day life.
I joined Transputec in 2019 as a 2nd line Service Desk Analyst and was promoted to Shift Lead. I was then given the opportunity to become a Team Leader for IQPC. Prior to Transputec, I was a team leader for 3 years managing remote workers across the globe. I’ve been in the IT industry since 2008 as a technology and software support analyst. My experience broadened and I rose through the ranks when I became part of the Service Desk team. Transputec has helped me grow my experience. I learnt a lot from my seniors, and they all have been supportive even up to now. I’ve always had a passion for learning. I believe that people should develop a passion for learning because life never stops teaching. When I am not working, I read books or articles online, spend time with my family watching (anime, series, or movies), sing songs while my husband plays his guitar or practice playing songs on my keyboard. I am a LOTR fan, and I’ve seen the movie countless times. I’Il just leave this quote that I love from one of Tolkien’s books: “All have their worth and each contributes to the worth of the others.” – J.R.R. Tolkien
I am enjoying my experience of the workplace, and 6-months into the apprenticeship I have gained many new skills. I hope to learn much more in the future and feel this is a good step into the IT industry.
Working for the company has enlightened my understanding of the work within the IT industry. I hope to progress my career here at Transputec.
I am really enjoying my apprenticeship and getting to work with different people. I have picked up skills that will help me improve in my job role by working and resolving a variety of tickets every day. I have joined the Woodland Trust 1st line team, and everyone in the team is supportive and welcoming. I have also been working on laptops for the BAM project, which is interesting as we are learning new fixes as we go. Overall, I am having a lot of fun and look forward to learning much more from my colleagues.
Before I stared working for Transputec, I was initially a technical Support Representative with a little bit of upselling way bac in 2007. After I resigned, I got hired in another company to work as an IT helpdesk in 2009. Unfortunately, I had to resign again from being an IT Helpdesk and become a full time Dad. Luckily, an opportunity came and was accepted to work here at Transputec. All I had back then were my excellent customer service skills, basic AD account management, and just a few internet connectivity and office applications troubleshooting background/knowledge. And with great determination, an eagerness to learn and the ability to adapt to the fast passed environment of the IT Industry, here I am now aftern7 years. All thanks to the people who guided and nurtured me over the past few years in this company.
