17.12.2019: Meet Mohamed Ramadan Atta - Employee Interview
1) Tell us your story- how did your path lead you to Nanion Technologies?
Well, my story is a rather long one, full of challenges, wonderful moments and unforgettable memories!
I graduated from Cairo University as a Biomedical Engineer and even though engineering had been my career goal, my dream job was to become a Diplomat. Whilst pursuing my diplomacy goal I was working for the national lab for Newborn screening in Cairo where I was making an impact and actually saving babies, with every sample that was taken, delivered, punched into the machine and entered for testing, I was always reassured that those babies would live a healthier life because of what we were doing. I was then offered a similar position in the United Kingdom which I accepted. I then moved to Manchester where I lived, worked and got married to my wife in Vienna. My wife later moved to join me in Manchester where we were blessed with 2 boys and shortly after we decided to move to Germany. The one aim that was clearly stuck in my head when I started interviewing for jobs in Germany was that I needed to be in an environment that was similar to my previous experiences, one that had a clear purpose and was making a great impact. Having accumulated more than 8 years’ experience in helping customers, gaining their satisfaction and above all my passion towards automation and automated liquid handlers, I came across a job opening at Nanion which I immediately fell for, felt a connection and imagined myself being a ‘’Nanioneeeer’’.
I, without a doubt, had to send in my application!
Long story short - when Kenneth invited me over for an interview with Niels, Michael and the rest of the team. My first impression was ‘’Nanion is a small family with a huge impact’’.
I am glad and honored that I was chosen to be part of the service team and join the Nanion family.
I wish Nanion every success in the future and to be part of it for many more years to come.
• Set your goals very high because you will achieve all of them!
• Should have picked German instead of French in school.
• Don’t buy too many sweets because there are so many of these in our Nanion-headquarters’ lunch room :-D
3) One Last Question- what’s the coolest thing about your job?
• I get to travel to new places, meet nice people and share nice moments.
• Customer Satisfaction: I get to see the happiness in customers’ faces when their machine is fixed and up and running again, or working better than ever after a planned service. This brings me joy despite the tiredness, long working hours and sleepless nights (from my kids and def. not Nanion!).
