Frends is the main technology we use. Technologies such as Azure, PowerShell, and SQL expertise, among others, can also be utilized in the role. Thinking like a programmer or experience in C # programming is a plus at work, as Frends is based on C#. Of course, you don't have to know everything. It is enough to have the motivation to learn something new.

The tasks are suitable for people who enjoy customer work and problem-solving and constantly develop their skills. Curiosity and an interest in learning new things will also help you succeed with your work projects.
