We find many different backgrounds and stories at axefinance, and yet we often hear a common refrain:

WORK HARD / PLAY HARD

In Their Own Words

EYA, Software Engineer R & D Department,

 

While studying for an IT Management degree from IHEC (Carthage), I joined axefinance as an intern in February 2015. My final project was well received within axefinance and I was lucky enough to be hired immediately after my internship. I’m grateful that while working at axefinance during that time I could finish my master’s degree in IT & E-commerce. It was a challenging period with projects to deliver for both axefinance and my degree. At axefinance, I help in completing projects to improve ACP in order to maximize user efficiency and productivity (look & feel, UX and UI). I also deal with internal delivery processes. It was easy for me to make the choice to join the team after my internship because I was impressed by the work atmosphere and commitment of the R&D team.
4 years in now and more experienced, but I’m still learning and finding new ways to contribute and add value. I especially appreciate two things at axefinance #1transparency, and #2 teams that help one’s personal growth. Many people are eager to join axefinance straight after their internship period for these two reasons. When I joined R&D, not only was the youngest team member but also the only girl. It was fun to see their eyes when I arrived…

Sami, Team Leader in the PS Department,

With a master’s degree from SKEMA Business School (IS & Business Consulting), I worked at SAP LAB and IDEE before joining the axefinance family in 2012. In a typical day at axe, I contribute with my team to deliver world-class Loan Origination solutions, find sustainable answers for our customers and enhance PS’s delivery process and best practices.  I joined axe to work in an international environment and embrace challenges like cross-cultural awareness, and mastering international lending and risk policies. What I appreciate most at axe is learning from highly skilled and open-minded managers in credit and risk management. The atmosphere has always been friendly; I remember last year after a Go Live in Luxembourg, we were invited by one of the bank employees to eat couscous prepared by coworkers. It was delicious!

With an Engineering degree from ESPRIT, I joined the axefinance family in 2011. I was a senior developer within the R&D CORE team for 4 years. I had the opportunity to master all technical sides of our products. But within axefinance one should never stagnate, I was attracted by the business side of axefinance and the interaction with our customer. In a typical day at axe, Me and my team, are making sure that our customer portfolio is satisfied by our solution and trying to propose more solutions, processes and best practices to make their life easier.
What I appreciate most at axe is working in an international environment and embracing challenges like cross-cultural awareness. The atmosphere has always been friendly; I remember our last year annual meeting when one of our customer assisted and he enjoyed party vibes.
