Welcome Finn!

Hi everyone, my name is Finn. Last year I was in school in Hirschengraben. I learned a little bit of English, maths, and other interesting things. In my spare time I play three to four times a week football, where I meet a lot of friends; I play video games sometimes, too. My goal this year is to learn programming, to get to know as many programming languages as possible, and to understand them. One of my dreams is to have a wife and two children and to hopefully stay in VSHN after my apprenticeship.

VSHN’s Corporate Governance 2020

How time flies! Almost six years ago we founded VSHN. In the beginning, eight of us sat in an open-plan office. Decisions could be made quickly and easily in a team. The flip side of the coin was that due to the limited number of people, many VSHNeers had to take on several roles within the company. There was no dedicated unit to take care of the employees’ needs. Or one that drove technical developments. The same applied to marketing, and not only there. We all wore many hats at once.

Moneycab interview with VSHN CEO Patrick Mathers

Patrick Mathers, CEO VSHN, im Interview. Moneycab.com: Herr Mathers, bitte erläutern Sie kurz was Ihr Unternehmen macht. Patrick Mathers: Die Digitalisierung macht heute vor keiner Branche mehr halt. Das bedeutet, dass so gut wie alle Unternehmen nun auch gleichzeitig IT-Firmen sein müssen, egal ob es sich hierbei um einen Finanzdienstleister oder einen Detailhändler handelt. Zudem wird die benötigte IT komplexer, schnelllebiger und risikoreicher, weswegen Software kontinuierlich weiterentwickelt werden muss.

Welcome Carole!

Hi, I’m Carole Hamer, and I’ve been working in tech startups in France, the US, and Switzerland for about twenty years. Up until now I’ve mostly worked in very small startups (<= 20 people total), which has allowed me to try out almost every role that exists in an IT department – usually all at once. I've found that I especially enjoy the DevOps role, which is why I'm thrilled to be working as a DevOps Engineer in VSHN's Capella team where I can take a deeper dive into Kubernetes and other tools for deployment and scaling.
