Continuing with our Employee Spotlight program, this month we will talk about Zsombor Oreg, ANRA’s Systems Engineer at the London office. Read about his role and what makes him tick
Do you have an office nickname? What is it?
A: No, or maybe just not yet. Usually, they just call me Zsombor.
What motivates you to wake up and go to work every day?
A:Working at ANRA as a member of the development team, with every task we complete, and every project we finish we are getting closer to making a vision reality. The services ANRA provides are fundamental to the safe and efficient operation of drones, and, my personal favourites, the advanced and urban air mobility vehicles. We have the unique opportunity to be pioneers of this field. Also, there was never a day during which I didn’t learn something new, which is an additional benefit of working in an emerging area.
What’s something most colleagues don’t know about you?
A: Most of them would probably be surprised that when I was younger I was fascinated with driving and flight simulators, which I could play with for hours on occasion. Now, when I have the opportunity, I can enjoy these in real life.
What is your proudest moment at ANRA ?
A: I was always proud of ANRA that despite having teams on three continents, working in different timezones, we could always communicate efficiently, through multiple channels. I believe the moments of us supporting each other are my proudest moments.
If you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and why?
A: If it was possible, I would rather like to meet someone from my future great-grandchildren’s generation. It would be interesting to see how the world has changed by then, how they think and what problems fascinate them.
What has been your favorite project so far at ANRA ?
A: So far, I have mostly been working on the ANRA Smart Skies Platform. The complexity of the tasks makes it just as enjoyable as it is challenging, as we always need to consider the tasks from both an aviation and a computer science perspective, while also focusing on the needs of the operators.
