Meet your Manager - Steven Luyckx, Director SaaS Infrastructure

How long have you worked for nShift?
For 6 years now. I started as the IT Manager at Transsmart, a Dutch company that was later acquired by one of the predecessors of nShift. Since that time I'm managing the teams responsible for the operational availability of the different hosted environments.

What would your current team members say about your leadership or manager style?
I hope they mention my ways of supporting the team by all means. I want team members to feel engaged, rather than to be managed. And I also want to build bridges to other teams in Gothenburg or in the other nShift locations. Anything shared with another team will create added value in the long run.

What do you love about nShift?
Because nShift originates from a merger of market-leading companies, there is a lot of competence and knowledge in the company, both in terms of the domain and in the terms of the technologies used. The synergy between the engineering teams creates inspiration for improving the systems and processes that drive our products.

What difference will this role make to nShift if I join ?
First of all, you will allow the team to operate at full capacity again. Secondly, your experience and key knowledge areas will help the team perform better than before. And last but not least, we want you to feel the passion and joy of working for nShift.
