“It is a great place to work! I was very fortunate to start work as a consultant for E-DBA (now Red Stack Tech) three years ago. For that time I had a lot of successes – spoke at Open World and UKOUG, became team leader, became employee of the year (twice) and I worked on some big and challenging projects. I have also specialized in Engineered Systems, Exadata in particular and installed more than 12 units in 2015 myself. The team and the management are very supportive as well – I was given a chance to achieve the highest DBA certification and I’m very happy to say that I passed the OCM 11g exam in April 2016. I’m excited and looking forward on what would be the next challenge.”
