Confident in Tech as an exciting and varied career choice

March Madness best work place memory
ABAX has a clear goal of having 80% satisfied employees at all times. On the ground floor of the head office in Larvik, employees can play billiard, use the football table or relax in deep, green sofas. But these are just everyday measures. In the month of March, “March Madness” is arranged where the management invents constantly new tricks. It can be "crossdressing", where the boys have to dress in women's clothes and vice versa. Or days where everyone wears sweatpants or caps and is pulled out of their own comfort zone. “March Madness” is Mr. Wan Luo's best workplace from ABAX:
Everyone was driving towards the same goal together while having a lot of fun. It was brilliant!
Loves a technical deep dive with colleagues
For Mr. Wan Luo, the best thing about working in Norway and Larvik is that he experiences a healthy work-life balance. He usually starts his workday with the typical catching up on the morning emails and task reminders. After, he focuses on five main areas - of which platform stability and customer issues are the first:
– I then focus my attention on ongoing project status review and feature design reviews or technical deep dives and follow up with remote teams. I have 1:1´s with my managers and team leads too. Great days are those that involve feature design reviews or technical deep dives with the team. Fortunately, I have many great days here at ABAX!
