What do you do at Intel?
Originally based in Israel Design Center, I was relocated at the beginning of this year to Hamburg, Germany, to help manage the computing infrastructure of a recent Intel acquisition called ChipIng.de. This company has been fully merged with Intel and is now an Intel design center within the Intel Communications Group / Optical Products Group. I am responsible for the complete IT infrastructure, ensuring day-to-day operation of all front-end and back-end computing equipment as well as planning, budgeting, designing and implementing computing infrastructures and enabling engineering capabilities.
What qualifications do you need?
My background as a bachelor of arts in mathematics and computer science as well as my MBA from Rotterdam School of Management helps me in my day-to-day work, making decisions, interacting with people and finding the best solutions to technical issues.
What is your favorite thing about working at Intel?
I identify with Intel values. I appreciate the fact that Intel views its employees as its most precious asset and tries to keep and take good care of its employees. "A great place to work" is not just a slogan but is actually implemented. The openness and accessibility of people at all levels, and encouragement of innovation are aspects of this organization's culture that I truly like.
What is the best experience you've had while working at Intel?
I can't put my finger on one specific experience. I appreciate many of them. I think my latest assignment in Germany is a great opportunity and challenge both professionally and personally. Working in a different culture and business is an opportunity to bring my previous experiences into the new environment for the benefit of all.
