Engineer with a sense of tact
Jun 06, 2019
We would like to introduce Miklós to you and asked him a few questions.
What tasks do you take care of as an infrastructure specialist at Lufthansa Systems?
At the beginning my main task was to support the setup and stabilization of the Operations Control team in Budapest. They work around the clock and solve all kinds of customer issues related to the NetLine product family, for example SchedConnect and ProfitLine/Price, just to name a few. At the beginning of 2018 I also joined the project that dealt with the migration of the 1st level Aviation Service desk for the products mentioned above from Flensburg to Budapest. So, we now have a complete 1st, 2nd and 3rd level Application Operations team in Budapest.
How long have you been working in this field?
I joined Lufthansa Systems in 2005. The Infrastructure Operations department I was working for was later outsourced and after some time I decided to work again under the wings of the crane. So, strictly speaking it has only been around one and a half years.
What do you like best about your job?
In addition to “business as usual”, I also support various projects. This allows me to take on a variety of tasks. I recently decided to join the devSpace team in Budapest. The service we provide is supporting complete application development toolchains, which include Jenkins, Bitbucket, Sonar and Nexus. In older times I was also working as a software developer, so together with my infrastructure operations expertise it just makes up the perfect combination for me.
What do you do in your spare time?
I was always a big fan of music and played several musical instruments when I was younger. After many years I picked up my guitar again and now I play in a small band of four. First and foremost, we want to have fun together. We don’t plan to play on the main stage of the next Sziget Festival (a big music festival in Budapest) – at least not yet. Recently, I also picked up a course in location sound recording, which is about recording dialogues and other sounds during filmmaking for movies or TV. It’s a very interesting complementary area to my interest in music.
So, you’re an engineer with a sense of tact. Do you have a musical role model?
In my teenage years I used to adore some of the great jazz masters. My musical taste widened quite a lot since then and today I listen to almost any style, let it be classical, jazz, world music, rock, electronic or even experimental noise. I try to remain open to new musical developments, therefore I listen to all sorts of musical sources, FM radio, podcasts, streaming providers, etc. I also collect vinyl records. It’s so much music all in all that I cannot easily pick any one person as role model. But if you insist, I would name Miles Davis. He's considered as one of the musicians who constantly reinvented music. I believe the key is to try to dig deeper in your field of interest all the time.
