Meet Your Future Colleagues

DÁVID KAYA
Engineering Tech Lead
"Since joining Y Soft part-time in 2014, I have advanced from a Junior Embedded Systems Developer to an Engineering Tech Lead and am now responsible for the Engineering Team's work. During these three years, I've touched on everything – from hardware to websites and applications.

I have learned more in one year at Y Soft than in three years at university.

My work is varied allowing me to learn many types of technologies and to integrate industry innovations into my everyday work."
JAKUB PAVLÁK
R&D Manager
"I joined Y Soft’s R&D department as a QA Engineer. I have an interest in how people work together so after one year, I managed a group of student interns and took an interest in their career development. The following year, I managed a Quality Control Coordinator and then became a Test Lead two years later leading a group of QA Engineers. Soon after, we developed a robotic hand that has grown into a robotics team that I have been leading since its inception.
 
Currently, I am an R&D Manager and, in addition to the robotics team, I also take care of the R&D infrastructure. My career advancement was fueled by my will to always do something extra, to work on myself and to keep a professional attitude at all times."
KLÁRA MITUROVÁ
Event Coordinator
"I joined Y Soft in April, 2016 as an Office Assistant. I quickly realized that this is the kind of work you do, not because you have to, but because you enjoy it.  

Just one year later, I applied for an Event Coordinator position. I succeeded and moved into the marketing department where I take care of corporate events held around the world.

I like the people I work with. I enjoy the freedom of organizing my own work, and I have gradually collected a variety of valuable skills that has enhanced my career further."
MARTIN ŠALATA
R&D Intern
"I became acquainted with Y Soft through a competition at Masaryk University. The competition topic I had chosen eventually turned into my Bachelor thesis. I liked how Y Soft worked with students systematically. Nobody at Y Soft looks at you strangely when you want to write a Bachelor thesis.

Today, I focus on monitoring. I appreciate the space that we have to research new technologies and the time flexibility allows me to combine work with university studies."
PAVEL PISKAČ
Solution Consultant
"After I finished my studies at Masaryk University, I stayed at the University as a YSoft SafeQ admin. When I started looking for a new job, Y Soft was my first choice. I joined the Customer Support Services department as a Technical Consultant in May, 2012.

Within two years, I became a senior technical consultant and have been working as a solution consultant for the last two years. 

With my career advancement, I am able to get new, more interesting and complex tasks by working with some of our larger customers. I am delighted that the company trusts me and appreciates the work I'm doing."
PETR BARTOŇ
Junior Embedded System Developer
"I wrote my Bachelor and Master theses while working part-time at Y Soft. I was very motivated by Y Soft's constant interest in pushing my work further and received a lot of useful feedback from them. At the same time, I was given enough freedom and time to choose the direction I wanted to take.

Today, I work on projects for mobile devices and servers.  The team of people I work with are the main reason I enjoy Y Soft."
ZUZANA ZATROCHOVÁ
Junior Technical Product Manager
"My first contact with Y Soft was during my second year of university through a competition for talented students. After working on my Bachelor thesis with Y Soft’s assistance, I accepted their part-time job offer and worked with the development team to grow my knowledge of complex distributed systems. Now I'm a full-time junior researcher.
 
Because of the various projects I have worked on, I have learned about the entire product. This has given me exposure to the product management teams. I now participate in the most important projects related to our products."
