Bruno - Senior Customer Support Engineer, Belgium
"My first impression was a feeling of entering a new family, and this has been confirmed over the years. For me this is one of the strengths of EVS, this family spirit where we are considered as special people and not as a number. What I like in my job is the fact that I always enjoy going to work and seeing my colleagues/friends […]. Another thing that I like is the technological side of the company, always looking for new products. Due to my ever-evolving work, I learn new things every day, and I can participate in beautiful world events and travel, meet different people and cultures […]. Another strength is that we have a lot of autonomy, as long as the work is done and follow-up is organized. Joining EVS is not only joining a big international company, but a real family which is really difficult to leave once you are in.”

“During the Interview process, I liked the challenges that were open, the mindset of the people I met, the general atmosphere and of course the field of activity. And my first impressions so far were correct: It is still very interesting and the company offers lots of challenges. It is a very dynamic environment with new things everyday whether it’s in the market, the company, the people. The organization is also very flat, there is not so many steps and people are approachable no matter the title."
