Comment from the previous employee of this position

“Hi I’m Bálint. I had/have this position you had the chance to read about above. And yes, I was part in writing the vacancy description of my current position! Never thought I am going to do this. Neither to leave ATLANT where I got all the opportunities to grow both as an engineer and as a person. But I got the chance to create my own company where I can use everything, I learned at ATLANT which makes me confident in how well I will be able to solve all the issues a start-up company can bring!

If I can describe ATLANT with one word, then I would say ATLANT is the POTENTIAL. Potential to grow, to make a change, and to really feel connected to something amazing in the form of our project and our fantastic team!”
