Summer is well and truly underway and a steady procession of new recruits are certainly adding to the sunshine around ActionPoint HQ.
Read about their journey below and why they are choosing ActionPoint for the next chapter of their careers.
Role at ActionPoint: Financial Accountant
What did you do before ActionPoint? Graduate Accountant (BDO) Contract and Revenue Management (Microsoft), Financial Accountant (Olympus Biotech) and Financial Accountant (Analog Devices)
Hobbies/Interests? “I absolutely love hill-walking, with the Burren in County Clare being one of my favourite escapes”. Clearly not satisfied with the local challenge, Marion has made the pilgrimage to Northern Spain to trek Camino de Santiago or “El Camino”. “The route is 900 km long and takes 5 weeks to complete.” This insane hurdle of endurance is not just another bucket-list item for Marion, as she has made the trip 4 of the last 5 years and is eager to don the hiking boots and tackle the trail, once again.
“A Proven track record and an award winning mentality are high among the reasons for choosing ActionPoint. It is a clear sign of the company’s ambition and something that every professional should aspire to be part of.”
Role at ActionPoint: QA Analyst
What did you do before joining ActionPoint: TyreCheck (Software Test Lead), Metal Fabricator (Bolger’s Engineering), Hardware team Lead (Dell), Repair, Maintenance and Production (Dell)
Hobbies/Interests: Gaming: “I love gaming, In fact, I’m ‘THE GUY ‘ who sends bug reports to Games Developers, Once a QA, always a QA!!, I suppose. My favourite game? Team Fortress or Call of Duty. Any game with armed combat involved generally gets the blood flowing, I probably should have joined the army, laughs Aaron. Other than that, I enjoy biking; hitting the open road on a Sunday during summer is bliss.” Aaron also enjoys a trip to Athea for the annual motorcycle road-racing event.
“Diversity of projects. Having worked on essentially the same core product in my last role, I knew joining the Development team at ActionPoint would give me access to a range of different projects and client requirements. As a gamer, ‘AR enabled IoT’ using Hololens seemed like the stuff of fantasy. Witnessing the work that ActionPoint are doing with the technology at present is extremely exciting.”
Role at ActionPoint: Office Coordinator
What did you do before ActionPoint? TE Connectivity (Office Manager), Eflexes (Recruitment Consultant), Limerick Travel (Travel Consultant)
Hobbies and Interests: Music (Fiddle player by trade), beyond traditional however, I’m a lover of Fleetwood Mac, Foi Vance and love to rock out to ACDC. Another side-project I work on is Dog-breeding, specialsing in Black Labradors. I also enjoy penning my blog and have tonnes of pics and updates from my clan of labs.” Ann is clearly a lover of dogs and believes that “Every house should have a lab!”
“I had worked at a company nearby and knew one of the Sales guys from ActionPoint. We decided to catch up for a coffee one day and he invited me for a look around the, then new office. I was really taken aback by the atmosphere and positive energy around the place, there was such a buzz! That visit stayed with me for quite a while after that coffee date and so, when this role was advertised, I was keen to join the Action (No pun intended).”
