Let’s do cloud computing!

With the potential of cloud computing, the largest organizations in the world are taking notice, providing plenty of opportunity for cloud computing professionals. Here at NashTech – home of IT talent coming from all over the world, with diverse backgrounds and cultures, you will have the chance to learn different ways of thinking and working strategies while delivering projects with foreign colleagues. Here’s some of the benefits of developing your career and cloud computing expertise at NashTech.

Cloud is a big deal

The influence of new technology trends is rapidly increasing. Cloud computing is likely to have the greatest impact over the next five years. According to Gartner’s annual forecast of worldwide public cloud service revenue, cloud initiatives are expected to grow from $182.4 in 2018 to $331.2 billions in 2022. Since cloud computing is attracting technology providers’ investment, it opens up many chances for IT talent.

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the delivery of on-demand computing services including servers, databases, storage, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence – typically over the internet.

At NashTech, we are offering a broad set of policies, technologies, controls, and expert technical skills that can provide a scalable, flexible and secure service. One of the outstanding benefits is that organisations can avoid the upfront cost and complexity of owning and maintaining their own IT infrastructure.

Work as a cloud engineer

NashTech is pursuing the highest level of integrity and quality by developing cloud-based technology solutions and consulting on cloud adoption and digital strategies and delivering global technology projects for many big clients to ensure that clients possess the edge they need.

We work with the top three cloud providers—Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform for several years. As a Microsoft Gold Partner, NashTech has the credibility and proven expertise to support Azure environments and the applications in use.

If you have experience, credentials and are fit for a role, it’s possible to find a meaningful, in-demand work in cloud computing at NashTech.We are developing our teams, fulfilled by young talent who are doing global scale projects using the following cloud-based solutions:

  • Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)

Infrastructure as a service is an instant computing infrastructure, provisioned and managed over the internet. It quickly scales up and down with demand, letting clients pay only for what they use. In another words, with IaaS, clients can rent hardware instead of buying it. This is the most flexible category of cloud services, because it can give organisations the most control over the provided hardware that runs their application.

  • Platform as a service (PaaS)

Platform as a service provides a cloud-based environment with everything required to support the complete lifecycle of building and delivering web-based (cloud) applications without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware, software and hosting. It creates an application quickly without managing the underlying infrastructure. It is a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud, with resources that enable organizations to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated cloud-enabled enterprise applications.

  • Software as a service (SaaS)

Cloud-based applications, or software as a service (SaaS), is a method of software deployment over the internet and centrally hosted for the end customers. It provides a complete software solution that organisations purchase on a pay-as-you-go basis from a cloud service provider. Their users connect to the purchased app over the Internet, usually with a web browser. Office 365, Skype, and Dynamics CRM Online are perfect examples of SaaS software.

Great opportunities with cloud computing job roles at NashTech

Cloud computing offers a wide array of opportunities to IT engineers who can leverage their expertise and challenge themselves with innovative ideas and the world-leading technology. With Cloud computing, you are not limited to one type of position. You can be a Solution Architect, or a Back-end Engineer, or a Developmental Operations guy making sure systems are up and run smoothly all the time.

You can learn what you like to learn by participating in large global-scale projects for international clients from Asia, Australia to America and Europe at NashTech. Moreover, we value the solidarity here, so programming is no longer a job in which a computer is your only companion. Nashers can team up with many co-workers, who are from different regions of the world.

Together, we enjoy a great work-life balance with tons of helpful and generous benefits too.

The untold stories of two Software Engineers

Throughout almost two decades in Vietnam, NashTech has always striven to become a go-to destination and nurture the growth of thousands of employees. Because for us, our Talent are extremely important and they are our most valuable assets.

With this motto, NashTech organizes an annual award, titled ‘Employee Of The Year’, to express our gratitude and appreciation towards our talent. This year, six Nashers have been honored as ‘Software Engineer of the Year’ and with this first article of the series, let’s explore the two inspiring stories about Ms. Tien Diep and Mr. Phuoc Van throughout their journeys at NashTech.

Tien Diep – What doesn’t kill you, make you stronger!

Tien Diep is currently working as a Senior Software Engineer at NashTech. With passion for beauty and the goal of creating beautiful displays, Tien has chosen to follow the path of being a Frontend Developer, where she can design and deliver splendid yet friendly websites.

Since the day Tien joined the company in 2018, NashTech has given her opportunities to learn, to grow, to develop not only technical but also soft skills. During these two years, although Tien has faced many challenges and tough times, but after overcoming these, she said: “What doesn’t kill you, make you stronger!”

Tien recalled one of the most bittersweet memories while working with NashTech. It occurred during the last months of 2019 when the Southeast Asian Games 2019 was being held. During that time, Tien’s team had to work overtime frequently to meet the deadlines for an important client. And during the night that Vietnam were victorious in the football final, Tien and her teammates were in the office, working until midnight while the whole country was celebrating. Watching people flocking onto the streets with national flags, hearing the crowd making cheerful noise while she was still chasing deadlines made her become emotional. However, she said that looking back at those hard times, it helped her becoming stronger than ever and now no barrier can stop her!

Sharing her feelings when she received this ‘Employee Of The Year’ title, Tien had told us a funny story about it. She shared that the morning she received the email about the nomination for this title, at first, she had ignored it and started her working day as usual, thinking it was just a companywide email. But later, knowing that she must have missed something, Tien mingled around the office, asking if there was anyone who had received the same message. After realizing that it wasn’t a bulk email, it made Tien felt ecstatic and blissful since her hard work and dedication is finally paying off and has been acknowledged by the company. It was surely an unforgettable memory for Tien and a worthy reward for her dedication.

Phuoc Van – A remarkable journey with shifting & diverse experiences  

Joining the company right after graduation, Phuoc Van has enjoyed a remarkable journey with nearly 5 years of experience in being a Nasher. Currently at NashTech, he is a Senior Software Engineer working with a competence of Full-stack NodeJS, which is usually joked as “full-stuck”. His hobbies include music (but he doesn’t know how to play musical instruments) and badminton. He usually spends time playing badminton after working hours and during the weekend to relax.

Sharing his journey with NashTech, Phuoc said becoming a Nasher right after graduation is a fascinating yet a bit thrilling experience for a fresher. However, looking back after 5 years, Phuoc said it was definitely a fortunate opportunity since at NashTech employees are given a nurturing and supportive environment that helps you to grow personally and professionally. You can barely find any other company that embraces employees’ growth the way NashTech does.

During 5 years of working at NashTech, Phuoc has been lucky to have the opportunity to experience a wide range of job roles. He shared that each year, he had the chance to work and learn in a different competency. For example, he was a Java Developer when he first joined the company. Later, he became a PHP Developer. After more than a year working at that position, he shifted to become a Frontend Developer and lastly, Full-stack NodeJS, which is his current role. Though it was challenging, it is a rare opportunity that not everyone can have a chance to experience.

During our talk, Phuoc also shared some tips on how to deal with deadlines. He said that any task or project will have their own deadlines and a manager of Phuoc gave him a great piece of advice. It was: “Everything can be negotiated if it is reasonable”. Following this “motto” has helped Phuoc meet many relentless deadlines although he also emphasized that it doesn’t mean that you can ramp down the commitment or procrastinate.

Besides being a Senior Software Engineer, Phuoc is also an energetic member of NashTech’s Badminton Club, and he usually joins the company’s internal tournament. He shared that badminton could help him relax during stressful periods. By releasing your mind with exercises, you can get back on track with more energy and motivation.

NashTech can grow so successfully today thanks to our amazing people, who are fondly called Nashers. Each person is a unique colour that contributes to the vibrant spectrum of NashTech. It’s great to have these two Nashers whose dedication was acknowledged and appreciated by the title ‘Employee Of The Year’. We would like to extend our sincere congratulations to them and hope that Tien Diep and Phuoc Van will continue to achieve many more milestones in their future career.

The inspirational journey of Tri Nguyen

The most important asset of NashTech isn’t the products we create or the service we provide. It’s the employees that clock in and out of work every day. One way that NashTech expresses our gratitude is by holding an annual ceremony called Employee Of The YearThree Nashers have made their name in Project Manager of The Year category.  

This week, let’s get to know Tri Nguyen and his journey at NashTech. 

Tri Nguyen joined NashTech in November 2012 as a Senior Quality Control EngineerAt the end of 2015, he became Team Leader for the project of a large UK based client. Three years later, he took a significant step forward to become the manager of a project in fitness industry which operates across Asia. Tri Nguyen has been working with this project and this prestigious client since then.  

This is my first project as a manager. There were many challenges, which can’t break me, but make me. 

No pain no gain 

Tri Nguyen shared with us that taking the step into a managerial position hasn’t always been easymore senior position entails greater responsibilitiesso, there were many challenges and new tasks to handle 

Project Manager’s typical duties include estimating project work, building project plans, and monitoring project scope and progress. One of the most important responsibilities is managing relationships with all people involved in a project.  

An effective Project Manager must be able to keep team morale up and ensure stakeholders stay happy from the beginning of a project until it ends. As a result, Tri has been thriving on resolving the managerial issueand improving his communication skills with both colleagues and clients.  

As African proverb sayings that “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Whenever Tri faced with any difficulties, he always had the support from Nghia Pham, Ngoc Le and Tuyen Phan, who gave him valuable advice in works. 

“When I joined the project, there was only 6 people in my team. It has now increased to more than 50 people.”

Tri proudly told us about the expansion of his team at NashTech.  

He is extremely jubilant to be one of the Project Managers of the year 

I would like to express the sincerest thanks to my seniors and my teammatesEspecially Nghia PhamNgoc Le and Tuyen Phan.

Tri says that it’s difficult to define what makes a “good” Project Manager. There are no specific standards to define them. However, he says a project manager should possess: 

  • Good communication: They must ensure that everyone’s clear on project objectives, status and expectations, give a clear instruction for both members and clients.  
  • Good problem-solving skills 
  • Supportiveness
  • Good management knowledge/ Hands-on management experience 

NashTech in him 

love NashTech, because of its flexibility in working and my strong bond with colleagues. Nashers are very lovely and proactive.

What he enjoys the most is watching his junior members strive and be successful. He shared that he is lucky to work with such proactive teammates. Besides his development on the road of a Project Manager, he always tries to help them as much as he canThis is one of NashTech’s core values  Collaborative – We take ownership but also draw on the benefits of teamwork and collaboration 

Tri Nguyen has showed a NashTech’s spirit through his whole career with usPerhaps his fascinating journey at NashTech has in part become the motivation for him to stay and develop his career here. The award not only shows his potential in advancement and leadership, but it also helps him set new goals, keeping the energy in the office high.  

NashTech would like to thank the contribution of Tri Nguyen, and all Nashers like him. They are a great motivation for us all to fulfill our goal in Vietnam, which is to create the best place for IT talent.

At NashTech we receive many CVs every year. Your CV – Curriculum Vitae is just like a golden key that leads to your future career. That’s why it is worth spending time to make it as perfect as it can be. To really stand out from the crowd you must have a professional CV and this can take some seriously good writing skills. Creating an impressive CV may be more complex than you think, but don’t worry, we’re here to help. Here we share many helpful tips and we’ve also included a CV template at the end of this article. 

Now, let’s do it step by step. 

Firstly, you must decide what information to write in your CV. There is no compulsory format for itso it is up to you. Basically, a CV should contain your personal information, your work experience, your education and qualificationsyour skills and your interests 

1. Personal information

You can start your CV with some personal information.

Tips: 

  • Your name, date of birth, email, phone number, address and a photo of yourself must be included. 
  • Don’t title your CV with ‘curriculum vitae’ or ‘CV’ as it’s a waste of valuable space. Treat your name as the title instead. 
  • Remember to avoid superfluous details, such as religious affiliation, sexual orientation, etc. 
  • Do not attach unprofessional selfies because this will give a bad impression. 

2. Objective

This is perfect choice when you’re targeting a specific job or position, as it’s an essential item that will make you stand out from the crowd. It explains who you are, what you can contribute to your team, and indicates your career direction. However, you must be careful. If you don’t do it correctly, it can look amateur or your employer might think that you are too demanding. 

Example: Senior software engineer, with 3+ years of experience, looking for a challenging role to utilize the technical and management skills for the growth of the organization. 

Tips: 

  • Keep it short; 
  • Start with a strong statement which describes your career goals, and say what you hope to do for the company; 
  • Remember that you should not use any kind of first-person pronouns. ( For example: I, myself, mine – Đại từ nhân xưng ngôi thứ nhất) 

 3. Work experience

Include the information of the organization where you worked, the job title, the dates you were employed and a summary of your experience and achievements. The record of your work experience should be presented in reverse date order starting with the most recent appointment. 

Tips: 

  • Mention your job title and your main responsibilities at former companies. 
  • Add your main achievements at each workplace. 
  • The number of your previous projects are wow factors for your CV. 

 4. Education

You must include the name of your school/academy, location, what degree you received, and the dates you were there. The format should be similar to Work Experienceso start with your most recent educational qualification and work backwards. 

Tips: 

  • List out the achievements and scholarships you gained; 
  • List out the activities you participated in while you were at school; 
  • If you don’t have much work experience, focus on the academic achievements, or your support/duties in the academic clubs you join which are related to the job. For example, you can mention details of the projects you did at school, and assignments that are acclaimed by your lecturers.  

 5. Key skills

We recommend adding this section underneath your personal profile to immediately catch the attention of the recruiter 

Tips: 

  • Any skills related the job should be mentioned. 
  • Be as specific as possible. 
  • Level/certificate of the skills should be mentioned. 

 6. Interests

You can boost your CV by inserting Interests section at the end of it. This can help to show how well you fit into the company or the industry. For example, if you’re applying for a company with a strong culture of solidarity and community like NashTech, you can indicate that you have a big interest in exploring and sharing new knowledge. 

Tips: 

  • Have knowledge about your desired company to understand what they need. 
  • Keep it short and to the point. 
  • Be specific. 
  • Don’t merely list down your interests – describe them in short sentences 

Top two reasons why you might be perfect for the job but you don’t get an interview 

At NashTech many CVs are rejected because of two major reasons: 

1. Poor spelling and grammar 

No excuses for thisYou should bear in mind that this is a document that represents you, and any mistakes could be the reason that your application doesn’t move to the interview phaseRemember to check your CV carefully for spelling and grammar before sending it to employers. 

2. You haven’t created a bespoke CV

An irrelevant Cwill quickly be disqualifiedThe more appropriate information you describe in your CV, the more chances/ notice you will get from the employers. Ensure that your CV contains information which the recruiter is looking for (related experience, skills, and so on)Although it may be time consuming, writing a bespoke CV for a particular job application will get you noticed above those that simply submit a generic CV. 

 CV Template for IT Freshers 

Here is really helpful CV template for IT freshers. It’s not super colorful or beautiful, but it’s organized with crucial information to let us know that you’re suitable for the job. If you don’t have much working experience, we recommend you focus on the ‘Education section. 

Use this checklist to find out what you are missing.  

Good Luck! We hope to see you in the face-to-face Interview!
