Our team – in short "ITIO“ also called Hosting team – was founded in the summer of 2015. We are a team of 12 systems administrators (including one female administrator) from Slovakia and we all speak to each other as friends. We are professionals who are constantly working on themselves and like new challenges. When there is no coronavirus pandemic, we leave our homes or office and strengthen our relationships – whether at go-karting, laser games, wall climbing or with good food and beer in the well-known pub.
Our main role is to ensure that IT infrastructure and back-end systems are continuously available, so that our customers’ customers can buy tickets for public transport at any time.
We manage hardware infrastructure (firewalls, servers, storage...) in the data centers of the Fare Collection Systems (FCS) division, as well as third-party software (operating systems, databases, antivirus...). Variety of incidents are addressed to us within or outside working time – our work effort is 24/7/365.
We install and configure new environments, but we also make changes according to the requirements of our customers and colleagues. An important part of our work is regular maintenance of IT infrastructure, software updates but also hardware migration. If it is necessary, we go to install hardware directly to the data centers – even in America.
We proactively monitor everything to prevent even the smallest problems. We also solve IT security in our data centers, and participate in an external IT security audit (PCI DSS) every year.
We are the 4th level of service and we face new challenges every day. We not only take care of external customer systems, but we support our colleagues from quality, service or software development and architects, too. The boredom and stereotype do not concern us. :-)
- Average age of the team – 36 years

„When I started work here in 2014, I had concerns about what might happen. They quickly went away and Scheidt & Bachmann won me over, particularly with its company culture and fair approach to employees. Also because of the stability of the company and the team full of professionals. This is the place where I see my professional future“
„As a mother of small children I was approached by a number of interesting positions and flexibility of working time offered by Scheidt & Bachmann. The ITIO team was a great choice for me, especially thanks to my colleagues who pull me forward and are always willing to help. There are no limits to work, new ideas and improvements are welcome. Thanks to the multitude of technologies, everyone has the opportunity to broaden their horizons. In addition I work as a database administrator, but I can also focus on monitoring, which interests me. The work is not monotonous and forces me to constantly expand my knowledge.“
„I appreciate the high professional commitment, great colleagues and an informal atmosphere during working days in our team. If you want to move somewhere, work with new technologies and meet great people, don't hesitate and send a CV to Scheidt & Bachmann."
We have settled in the Living Centre in the Solinky area of Žilina, in a spacious office with air-conditioning, an aquarium and a beautiful view of the fields outside Žilina and the Malá Fatra range. But we can work from our homes anytime, too.
