There will a focus on internet safety, which is very important for young people. And
two speakers from our Austria site will be joining virtually.
Let us introduce ourselves before we meet you! Who are we, anyway?
Sarah Noonan, Senior Business Consultant – I currently work as Product Owner on a technology project. This means that I work closely with the client to understand their requirements, and then translate these requirements into tangible pieces of work for the technical team to develop and test. I love the fast-paced nature of the project, and have really enjoyed working with international colleagues and a multidisciplinary team. I previously studied Civil and Environmental engineering, before moving into tech two and a half years ago.
Ciara Gardiner, Technology Consultant – I am a Software Tester, specialising in Automated testing. Following an undergraduate in History and Russian, I completed a Masters in Computer Science at the University of Bristol. After spending time travelling, I began my career in software testing with a small UK-based consultancy, where I worked for a few years before joining Bearing Point in September 2021. I love software testing because it requires a high-level understanding of projects as well as the ability to get in and write code. I’m passionate about projects having the correct test data for their needs and understanding how they can create and use data to thoroughly test their solution.
Ruslan Tuhtahunov, IT Manager – Originally from Kazakhstan but have lived in Ireland for well over 20 years to date. I specialise in Software Development having completed my Bachelor’s in NUIM in Computer Science and Software Engineering. I enjoy solving problems and finding solutions so working in this space I get plenty of opportunity to do both. Currently working on a large technical integration project as a Product Owner/Stream Lead which involves meetings, gathering requirements, setting up processes and guidelines as well as making sure that work is being delivered.
Erlend Depine, Senior Technology Architect at BearingPoint – I have been working with BearingPoint for over 25 years (I know I am old 😉). I had many different roles during my career; I have over 15 years of experience in cyber security – first in “defense” and now in “offense”. I am very proud and honored to be leading a small team of highly skilled and motivated individuals. When I am not working in cybersecurity – I like to collect and learn about music.
Marcel Schnideritsch, Senior Systems Analyst based in Austria – I have worked in BearingPoint for just over two years. I have been working in cyber security for over 10 years now and its also one of my favorite hobbies. I started learning about this in high school and have never stopped learning and improving.
We'll share links to extra information and materials below. Important links!
