Martina Summerer

What is it like to work at Dlubal Software? What experience have our colleagues had? Here you can read the answers of some of our employees.

1. Who are you?

My name is Jakub Harazín.

2. What education do you have, and how did you come to Dlubal Software?

I studied at the Czech Technical University in Prague. I graduated in February 2010. As a first contact with Dlubal Software, I worked as a part-timer during my studies at the CTU in 2007. I have started as a tester in the company, and then I changed to an analyst. I've also been involved in customer support and have been preparing training courses, webinars, and seminars.

3. What are your tasks?

Now I'm responsible for the translation team. I've been working as a head of the translation department since 2019. We are doing the translations of our programs and website. I'm also a member of the development team. We are working on the new features on our website.

4. What is important in your job?

The main point of my work is to listen to my colleagues and find the right solution to their inquiries. The communication within the team is very important. And it does not matter if I'm talking about the translators or about the website development team. Our team is really great; we know that the problems are our top priority, but we always want to solve it together, and we usually do it so.

5. What are you looking forward to when you come into work in the morning?

The main reason why I'm always looking forward to my work is my team. My colleagues are very smart, they know what to do, and the best thing is, we can speak about any problem, and we all know that we can find a solution together.

6. What excites you about the construction or structural engineering in general?

I've always been fascinated by buildings and architecture. And I was curious, how the structures were built. All the stones, members, shells, joints, and so on. So I decided that this is exactly what I want to do.

7. What is the best experience so far?

Since I've been working at Dlubal Software since 2007, my best experience is that I've tried almost all possible positions in our company, from the student part-time to the full-time employee. From the development to the customer support and the web development.

8. What is your hobby? How can it be combined with your job?

My biggest hobbies are traveling and gardening. I can travel anywhere I want, because we have 5 weeks vacation. Thanks to my job, I have had the opportunity to visit various places in the Czech Republic as well as the other countries. I usually do the gardening after my work or during the weekends, so there's enough time for mowing the grass, planting flowers, or watering the garden.

9. What advice would you give to young civil engineers and graduates for the future?

Don't give up anything. Sometimes it's a long journey to the top. But if you are patient enough, you will get the right results. It's always good to learn new things.

10. What is your favorite building?

I don't have only one favorite building. Since I love old architecture and churches, I'm always impressed by the Sagrada Família in Barcelona, St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican, St. Paul's Cathedral in London, or if we stay in the Czech Republic, then it is the St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague.

I love the majesty of such buildings. And I'm so excited to see the final state of Sagrada Família one day. I hope, it will be soon. And if I should choose from the contemporary architecture? It's very hard to say. I like lookout towers, so I that would be the lookout tower in Jeseniky in the Czech Republic.

It looks like very complex, but it's a fun to visit it.
