Eveline Kaik is the CEO of SensioLabs Deutschland, in charge of German and Austrian market.
Interview recorded on June 8th 2012 during Symfony Live Paris conference.
Why did your company join SensioLabs International network?
It's a very huge idea! SensioLabs is growing and we would like to continue this very successful work they’ve done in France. Germany and Austria are very big markets for Symfony. So we decided to get on the ship!
Do you think German and Austrian markets are different from French market?
Yes of course. For all of that, we offer the same services: training, projects management and development, technical support, etc. But with our specific: we try to avoid copying exactly what France does because it doesn't work. We develop our business in the « German » way, keeping in touch with the French company of course: we exchange about methods and ideas.
Just to remember, you're not in Berlin but in Köln. Is that really different for the market to work in Köln?
Obviously, Berlin is a very successful and active market. Services are growing very fast in Berlin. But it's not very necessary for us to be present in Berlin. German market is spreading out all over the country.
According to you, what are the main talents of SensioLabs Deutschland?
There are different kinds. You have to know that we founded this business from the scratch. Since a lot of months SensioLabs Deutschland is like our baby: we have to grow and discover some of our talents! But we already won a lot of clients, and we are proud to say that we already made technical support for famous companies.
