MORE ABOUT EVERTEAM LEBANON JOBS
I am a graduate from the Lebanese University carrying a B.A in computer science with an MS in web development. My journey at Everteam started in 2015. I entered as a trainee as it was a requirement from my University. My training at Everteam was for 7 months in the product department where we would develop the foundations of the solutions offered here at Everteam. After those 7 months were over I sat for an exam organized by Everteam to determine if I am eligible to get a permanent job after. I was lucky enough to get a job in the product department. This was the start to my career at Everteam. I am needless to say that Everteam is widely known for being an ECM company, offering content services around the globe with diversified product offerings and being a part of it was the ultimate dream.
Today, I am part of the project department. What does this department do? The project department in an enterprise content management company is in charge of building up on the foundations of the solutions in response to the specific needs of the clients. Not all companies have the same needs and environment. The needs vary depending on industry, company size, nature and operating system. We can cater to all, which gives me as an employee a very diversified experience.
WHY DO YOU LIKE WHAT YOU DO?
I like what I do because I find the whole concept of being able to structure the organization’s information wherever it exists dazzling! The fact that we can capture, manage, store, preserve content and documents all in a paperless environment to facilitate the workflow, can cut large unnecessary operating costs and even save trees. Chunks of paper documents can be archived to paperless applications. We can even manage all types of correspondence (fax, email, CD…) to a centralized interface. Everyday there is something new. New clients and new technologies. You start to push yourself to create the ideal solution. That’s the beauty of it, challenging yourself.
HOW ARE YOU CONTRIBUTING TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THINGS?
We are currently in the age of the digital world. Everything is transforming digitally and that is what we facilitate. Businesses are digitally transforming and we are helping them build a smart, confident and competent business structure. There are no limits in the digital world and we are keeping up with that. This is why I love my job! We are currently creating a proof of concept where we are trying to implement several new technologies to handle big data. We will be using new platforms like Hadoop and Spark which give us the ability to collect vast amounts of data and then distribute them on parallel working servers. Then, we use advanced analytics techniques such as text analytics, machine learning, predictive analytics (available in Eversuite Analytics solution) we visualize it all for the end user in dashboards. In simple words : Huge amounts of data – low cost servers – new insights for better and faster decisions based on visualized data in user friendly dashboards.
WHAT ARE CHALLENGING PROJECTS YOU HAVE WORKED ON?
Everteam has projects all over the globe. However since I worked on local projects I will list a couple that came to the top of my head. The Internal Security Forces (ISF) in Lebanon deployed CTS (correspondence tracking system) and SMS (student management system) over 1000 paperwork per day were only a “click” away. We also worked on dawlati.com which is an e-service website open for all Lebanese citizens to complete necessary services like applying for a new ID, new passport etc.. all over the internet.
WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE PLANS?
It is very possible to build a career at Everteam as there are many opportunities. I started form the bottom and I am gradually making my way up the professional ladder. Through Everteam I am exposed to working with super important clients and various solutions. With hard work and consistence I believe that I can build and grow a solid career here. I am developing on a personal and professional level which is exactly what I am looking for in a workplace.
