What’s your Tipico story?
I started at Tipico around 10 years ago, back in March 2011 as a Data Engineer for the Bookmaking team. I am now working as a Business Intelligence Developer for the Data Tribe where I analyse and transform data into reports and visualisation dashboards by helping our stakeholders to get the best insights when making business decisions.
What was your first impression of Tipico?
When I joined Tipico I was still a student during my final year of my bachelor’s degree, seeking to start my career. I was grateful that I was given the opportunity to work on flexible hours and gain first hands-on experience when just starting out. I also noticed that, Tipico as a company, not only focuses on the employee achieving the task but also gives us the opportunity to gain knowledge by learning different methodologies and systems, this is all part of who we are – we believe in progress.
Mention your best moments working here.
So far, there have been a lot of great moments while working here. The best has been seeing the company grow, starting from a small office in Malta with only around 30 employees, to a market leader in Germany, with different office locations around the world and hundreds of employees.
What challenges do you face?
We believe in tech and innovation; we like to be one step ahead and find better ways of doing things, spending time learning on new integrations and new tooling systems, while working with tight deadlines is one of my biggest challenges.
What is special about Tipico?
Working at Tipico is about working as a team, each with different skills and personalities. Everyone is there to help each other in achieving our goals by sharing knowledge on different areas of the business. This is what makes the work environment fun! Something else that comes to mind, are the events that are organised from time to time which helps us get to know our colleagues more, in a fun way.
What’s your daily pitch like?
I start my day with a daily meeting with the team to discuss what was done the previous day and what work will be done during that day. We work in Sprints where we have a board including the items that need to be worked on during the 2-week period. I spend the rest of my day, working on producing reports and dashboards to benefit the business.
What do you look forward to when you walk into our offices?
Right now, the one thing I am really looking forward to is going back to the office and meeting my colleagues and interacting just like pre – Covid times.
As you know we love sports.. which is your favourite?
My favourite sport is trekking, you focus less on other things and more on where the next step should be, since the terrain is not flat. During this time of social distancing, it gave me the opportunity to explore more of Malta’s hidden gems.
What is your one piece of advice for anyone interested in being part of our game?
Tipico is about working together as one team, and that is how we work, together we achieve our goals
