Dear Stephan, you recently began advertising for a Software Developer Cloud Infrastructure. From your point of view, what do you consider as the most appealing and challenging aspects of this position?

This job is positioned in one of the fastest challenging technology areas in Swisscom. What we develop today might be outdated tomorrow, so you need to be smart and agile to adapt. Therefore it offers the opportunity to constantly learn and improve your skills. I am looking for people that are capable to deal with this kind of dynamics in their professional environment.
