System Specialist Application & Information Management
Who actually takes care of the technical processes at STEAG? STEAG Energy Services handles all IT services for the entire group. Raúl García reports from the perspective of our subsidiary.
Raúl García (44) has worked for STEAG since 2012.
How did you come to join STEAG?
I came to STEAG Energy Services GmbH (SES) in April 2012 as an employee of a subcontractor. All the IT departments are grouped together at SES. Since then, my work has included the SharePoint environment, which many colleagues use, for example, to handle comprehensive projects. As an external employee I did quite well, so I got a permanent position at STEAG in August 2014.
Why did you choose STEAG back then?
I was looking for new ways to develop my skills. What was important to me was a good working environment that allowed me to implement my knowledge flexibly and independently. I found all that at STEAG. I am impressed by the range of business segments in which STEAG operates, and by the fact that half of our approximately 6,500 colleagues work outside Germany.
What is your typical working day like?
When I come to the office in the morning, the first thing I do is check the status of my system landscapes. If there are any anomalies, they are investigated and, if necessary, corrected, so that, ideally, others do not even notice that there was a problem. In the further course of the day I look after my projects, including consulting, planning and implementation of various requirements, complex authorization structures and workflows. Other topics include second level support, DOXiS, ShareDrive, PictureArchive, PIWIK, web servers and much more. All of these are applications that support our employees in their daily work.
"At STEAG we work in a large team, and seen from the outside the term "family" initially doesn’t seem to fit. Nevertheless, it feels exactly like that."
What does the STEAG family mean to you?
At STEAG we work in a large team, and seen from the outside the term “family” initially doesn’t seem to fit. Nevertheless, it feels exactly like that: everyone supports each other and is receptive to new ideas and suggestions.
Where do you get your energy from in your private life?
My wife and children are the counterbalance to my work. They give me energy, encourage my creativity and enable me to discover new things again and again.
