Meet Robert, Ineke and Nicolas!

Our newest teammembers can't wait to help you!

Robert 110Robert  Kała
.Net Developer

Robert doesn’t like wasting his time doing things he doesn't want to. Conclusion
He loves his job!

 

Back in Time

His earliest memory of a computer is an Amiga 600 with 2MB of RAM and 386 SX 25 MHz, 8MB RAM + 80 MB Hard Disk!

The Job

He likes the fact that his jobs requires him to keep up by being challenged all the time and obliges him to keep learning new things. Because he loves to build comprehensive solutions, he's the perfect man for the job!

Blog

By reading technology blogs about new trends, new devices and new technologies (mostly web and Microsoft) he tries to stay current

DJ

When he's not working he's cycling (road bike), running or playing guitar and piano. At night he becomes a DJ and plays in one of most popular pubs in Katowice: City Pub.

Fix it

The things that annoy him the most are the things he cannot fix.

 

 

 

Ineke 110Ineke Strobbe
Project Manager

Ineke likes to make lists but even more checking things off! 

 

 

The project

She loves to organize and plan all aspects of a project. Getting things done on time, exploring all information she can find and solving each problem on the way.

Check!

Her energy-boost? Checking things off her To-Do list (Yes, she's a compulsive list maker, but hasn't made a list of her lists... just yet).

First Job

This is her first job, so she still has a lot to learn. Therefore, she feels like her biggest goal is to take on new challenges and gain skills.

Slogan for life

She's a truly believer that everyone can achieve what they want. You just need to go for it, and never give up...

No chocolate?

She's a woman who can survive without chocolate (to be honest, she really finds it disgusting, so you will never see her eating it at all!).

 

 

 

 

Nicolas 110Nicolas Van Geluwe
Project Manager

Nicolas has a habit of  bringing up to much IT topics  when meeting with friends

 

Into IT

Even as a kid, he has always been fascinated by technology. Not in a I-want-to-dismantle-everything-kind-of-way but more as the a tool for doing more. He liked helping his surrounding with their computer issues, so one thing led to another and tough he's trained as a journalist he ended up in IT service and now in IT Project Management.

Time to read

You could say he's one of those who has more subscriptions to magazines and RSS feeds any human could handle. His curiosity is bigger than his personal time so he needs to scan and pick what to read and what not. Slashdot.org, techspot.com, anandtech.com, tomshardware.com and neowin.com are his top 5 bookmarks in technology.

Feel good

Having my team member laugh at one of my stupid jokes, getting a compliment from a customer thanking me for a fine collaboration, making my godchild smile when rescuing the princess from the evil hands of the bad guys, tackling a hard problem with the team knowing everyone had a part in it, In short making a difference and mattering gives him energy

Europe-gaming

Not so long ago he rediscovered multiplayer gaming. Over time some friends got scattered over Europe so having a beer with all of them together became quite challenging. One nostalgic Thursday evening someone suggested some old shooting game for old times’ sake. Luckily everyone was feeling a little blue so they all joined in. Now every Thursday a bunch of old gamers take it up against each other.

Pets

He’d really, really like a cat. But his girlfriend doesn’t particularly fancy cats and the hassle it brings. However, he warned her he will take advantage of the future kids. What self-respecting mother can refuse her 3-year-old child carrying a kitten to keep it? Right, it would be horrible!

Sneak preview of our new look and feel

 

 

 

Orbit one uses complex technologies to do complex things, just like most IT companies.
Which means that it's not always straight-forward to explain to our customers what they can expect from us. Now, to make it easier on our new customers to find out what we have to offer, we've simplified the description of our services.
In the meantime we're also updating our logo, website and blog, and any other communication materials.
 
We're fully engaged in our new identity, and will keep you informed!

His goal is to find out how a process at a customer’s company can be improved, help them into understanding how they can work flexible and productive and write all this down in an easy to read manner.

Focus

He likes to dive into the technical aspect of a solution that we will build and get all parties involved and enthusiastic about the new solution.
