The demand for software developers has never been higher. Across Europe, companies are looking for the right professionals to support them in an increasingly digital economy. At VITA, we understand that the needs of a German company for a software developer can often differ from those of a company in the UK, or France though.
Software developers might not need to reinvent the wheel, but due to the large amount of software applications today we see a number of different specialisations in the field, from front-end to back-end developers, and database developers through to web developers. The software developer that YOU require should have the right set of skills for YOUR projects, whether that be the development of new software solutions or the improvement and further development of existing ones.
At VITA, we have access to experts across the spectrum of software development and will ensure that your new software developer has the skill set that you need. We also understand that there is no such thing as a ‘unicorn’, and that not all software developers are alike.

The ‘Data Scientist’ was described in the Harvard Business Review as “The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century”, all the way back in 2012. Back then, the data scientist was a relatively new role, but now we see an increasing demand for data scientists across most industries.
The role of a data scientist is variable across different industries though, and while all data scientists should have a solid grounding in both coding and mathematics, the data scientist that YOU require should also have a good understanding of your industry, your data.
At VITA, we have have access to experts in both coding and mathematics to ensure that your new data scientist has a grasp of the fundamentals, but also understand the need for this domain expertise and will look for this in your prospective candidates too.

Believe it or not, there once was a time when the internet comprised of nothing more than a number of completely static web pages that were just simple walls of text, almost like reading an e-book. Not any more! Today’s websites range from the simple to the absolutely stunning, with animations and complex layouts all designed to both impress the user, but also enrich their user experience. The best web designers understand all of this and are skilled not only in the underlying coding of a website, but also in its graphic design.
At VITA we have access to experts in both the development of websites from a coding perspective and graphic designers too with a keen eye for what will, and will not attract your customers.

When looking at the news on the television, on the internet, or even just reading a newspaper, there is one thing that you cannot escape; cybercrime is a factor of our everyday lives and is only getting worse. A study into the cost of data breaches by IBM in 2018 found that the average data breach costs $3.86 million globally, which represented a 6.4 percent increase from the year before, and continues to rise. Juniper research have estimated that the global cost of cybercrime will exceed $2 TRILLION in 2020. In January 2020 alone, around 1.76 billion records were leaked, that we know of! Never before has this threat been greater.
An IT security consultant should be able to think like a criminal, plain and simple. Someone who simply ticks boxes on a checklist and tells your organisation it is safe is of no use whatsoever. A criminal WILL find ways around your defences and will take everything they can get from you. Gone are the days of breaking into companies online purely to impress your friends, cybercrime is now a business. Your IT security consultant needs to understand this and make sure that the cybercriminal looking at your organisation decides it is more bother than it is worth, and moves onto another easier target.
At VITA, we were formed from Vindler GmbH, a leading cybersecurity business owned and staffed by ethical hackers that are known and respected for their expertise worldwide. This expertise will be used to determine that YOUR next IT security consultant meets YOUR requirements and can keep YOUR business safe.

A system administrator is the person who is responsible for the health of your IT systems. You can buy the most expensive, top of the range IT system in the world, but you will still not be immune to failures in hardware and software, you will still require new software to be installed and not cause your whole system to crash. Think of a good system administrator like a good doctor; when you are well, you think that is doesn’t matter how good your doctor is because you are functioning OK, but when you are unwell a bad doctor will just make things worse! A poor system administrator is like this too, when systems fail they will only make them fail harder.
At VITA we have access to experts in a wide variety of systems. Your systems all run Windows? We have that covered. All Linux? Covered. A mix of everything? Got that too. We will ensure that your next system administrator is an expert in the systems that you have because we understand that one size does not fit all; no system administrator knows everything and every type of system.

Formed from the words ‘Development’ and ‘Operations’, DevOps represents the bridge between these two previously separate disciplines. Prior to the introduction of DevOps, development times of products and applications were increased as more time needs to be spent testing products rather than developing them for the marketplace. DevOps will make sure that your product or application is efficient and less prone to errors before your customers come to use them.
At VITA we have access to DevOps experts who have worked in a wide variety of production environments and understand what efficient delivery of your product or application to your market means.

The role of a product owner varies from one organisation to another. In general though, the product owner serves as the bridge between the development team and the business, or even the end user. The product owner is expected to champion your end user and help define the features that will make the final release of your product. The product owner must also be responsible for the product backlog and make sure that everything is kept up to date in line with the vision for the product.
At VITA we have access to expert product owners who have worked with a number of businesses and end users to ensure that the products they were working with met with the requirements of the vision.

A good IT quality manager is expected to be able to analyse your product or application, find problems within it and provide solutions. The IT quality manager should also be able to go beyond the realm of just searching for and remedying errors; they should also be able to suggest and implement improvements to your product or application that will improve the experience for your end users.
At VITA we have access to IT quality managers who have ensured that a variety of products and applications met the high standards demanded by their end users. We understand that this experience often cannot be taught and that years of practice delivering high quality products and applications to end users is required.

An application manager for managing all of the software applications within your business. Your application manager will not work in the development of software solutions, rather they will figure out which software applications you require from a business perspective, then take ownership of the delivery of those software applications throughout your business, taking charge of the installation, maintenance and upgrading of those software applications.
At VITA we have access to application managers who have worked in a number of organisations all with differing requirements for software solutions. We can look at what your organisation requires from its new application manager and ensure that your next hire is more than ready to take charge of your day to day software needs.
