Marta García, Project Leader Support
Memory of when you started in EDICOM. When I started out in EDICOM there were about 100 of us as employees and there was a lot of camaraderie. You felt very supported by your colleagues and you would learn something new every day.
How have you evolved in these 15 years? I have evolved a lot and constantly. It is a long-distance race because EDICOM has grown a lot in these years and we still haven’t reached the ceiling, this is still ongoing. Our evolution in technology and applications has been incredible.
… What hasn’t changed for you since you started out in the company. The company’s friendly affinity has become departmental. In the 24×7 area we are a very consolidated group of professionals who support each other. There is no comfort zone, as we are in a continuous recycling process, and have to keep learning every day.

Alejandro, Key Account Support Manager
Beginnings. When I started out in EDICOM I was really looking forward to it, as it was my first job as a computer scientist and I was keen to prove my worth. I was also confident, because I had received good training and felt supported by the team. I also wanted to grow and evolve in my line of work. And today, I can confirm that my expectations have been met. Evolution. We work with different departments inside the company and in different teams with customers, which has fostered better communication skills and empathy. Moreover, I have been able to… develop my languages in the company in my dealings with customers: improving my English and starting to learn Portuguese from scratch. In addition, I have alternated between different fields and jobs, as both personal and company needs have changed. This way, I got to know the working methodologies of each one and I was able to progress to coordinating one of the ETM groups in the consulting area as Team Manager. What hasn’t changed from day one? The fantastic working environment in the office. We are a young, happy and cohesive team, working alongside colleagues from different countries. I look forward to giving a big hug to colleagues I haven’t been able to see since 2015. Nor has the knowledge changed that we are in a phase of continuous learning and evolution, growing in parallel along with the company. Likewise, the desire to share experiences together also helps us evolve as a team in our work, such as taking part in popular races, soccer matches, bowling championships and the Christmas dinner, in which our partners also take part, as well as the conventions. On a personal level, the great atmosphere I mentioned earlier has favoured that the same eagerness I had at the outset to give the best of myself has not faded.

Sabina, France Technical Department Manager
Working in EDICOM encourages my professional growth through project management and day-to-day tasks, where you have to make an effort to learn other languages when working with large accounts. And personal growth too, because we manage teams and working with people on a day-to-day basis, you can learn a lot from them. You are always going to have colleagues who will be involved and will help you in the development of this project.
Edu, Senior EDI Consultant Support
Beginnings. The nervousness typical of any first-timer in a large company, eager to please everyone, was more than evident. I had to find my place at the same time as I was learning to make my way in an environment that was totally new to me. Evolution. Thanks to the help of my colleagues and a little effort, I have been acquiring new skills as part of the great 24×7 Support team. This in turn has allowed me to improve the support I can provide both to customers and other teams. What hasn’t changed.Taking on board and assimilating new… technologies is a constant that has been repeated over the years. Something which can be motivating and daunting in equal parts.

David, International Project Manager
When I arrived in EDICOM I was very nervous, as I was only a few months out of school and wasn’t really sure what to expect. Once the training started, I understood that I had a lot to learn, as I had never previously interacted with EDI messages or with the software that was handled in EDICOM. Nerves quickly turned into learning and excitement at facing this new challenge. I have to say that very early on in my career I had important opportunities that fortunately I was able to take advantage of, and which allowed me to reach the… position of Project Manager (PM) before I had even been with the company for a year. The department has evolved so much that there can be no comparison between the way a project was managed 10 years ago and how it is handled today. The tools that have been rolled out have enabled us to take project coordination to another level. After these years, in addition to project management, I have the responsibility of sharing my experience and helping other PMs to develop, so that they can grow as well. The constant training that EDICOM has provided me with during all this time (courses in PMP, Leadership, Languages, etc.) has encouraged me to improve both in personal and working terms. What hasn’t changed for me can be summed up by two things. On the one hand, the working environment and the quality of the people I have the privilege to work alongside. On the other, EDICOM’s ambition to always be at the cutting-edge. This has been key not only for EDICOM to still be here, but also for the company to become an international benchmark.

Fabrizio, International Project Manager
When I started out in EDICOM, I was barely familiar with terms like invoice, despatch advice and order and I was still improving my Spanish. It has all been quite a challenge, in a trajectory full of stimulating moments and important milestones. Over the years I have never stopped discovering new things. The most exciting thing about our environment is that it is very wide-ranging and you are forever discovering new concepts, situations and tools. A long stint as Software Integrator has enabled me to become more proficient in the use of our tools, in the knowledge of our customers’… business flows and in dealing with them. The progress to becoming a Project Manager has been natural, with a special focus on international projects, in order to take advantage of my language skills. And beyond my vertical growth within the company, I would like to emphasise that there is always room for improvement and personal growth. I see it as the main element for self-satisfaction. The varied environment, full of new projects, new clients and new scenarios are a constant feature of life in EDICOM and it means that every day you really have plenty of stimulating experiences and something new to discover. The working situation is impeccable, in a highly collaborative and approachable environment that remains the same as when I started. Read more “Fabrizio, International Project Manager”
Javier, International Project Manager
“I heard about EDICOM more than ten years ago thanks to a job vacancy published in the College of Telecommunications Engineers. From the outset, I noticed the team spirit and the good working atmosphere that prevailed and, to this day, continues to grow along with the company One of the aspects that I also liked when I arrived was the international ambience. I was coming from my first working experiences in France and I was happy to see that I could still speak French in my work environment. In these ten years there have been many changes, such as the… forming of teams, the change in methodology and the construction of our lovely new building. What has not changed is the strength of the group felt by everyone working in EDICOM and which encourages us to always give our best. All the colleagues I have worked alongside and shared good times with have had a positive effect on my trajectory and make me feel as though these 10 years have just flown past.” Read more “Javier, International Project Manager”
Carolina, Software Engineer
“About working at EDICOM, I would highlight that every day is a challenge. When you start your job, you don’t know which new project you will have to face, but what you do know is that you will have a lot of people behind you who will support you and help get you where you want to go. EDICOM is distinguished by the good harmony that exists between all the teams. Maybe because we do a lot of teambuilding. So we are quite used to working together, but also when we are away from the day-to-day. Any minor frictions that… may arise in daily life are smoothed over thanks to these dynamics. We work very well together; we like to do a lot of brainstorming to come up with a common solution and everyone participates in all projects.” Read more “Carolina, Software Engineer”

Memory of when you joined…
“The memories of my first year are the trips all over the territory performing installations for clients, where you had to learn to fend for yourself very soon and, in part, you felt apprehensive, but at the same time it made you stronger”. Evolution…
“After two years in EDICOM, the company entrusted me with the running of a new department, 24×7, to provide extensive customer service and monitor EDICOM’s cloud platform, which at that time consisted of a couple of servers and one service. Nowadays, everything has changed. With over 400… servers and more than 20 different services, we have had to continuously adapt. Personally, during this time I have learned to manage teams, accompanying our colleagues in their personal challenges while growing at EDICOM”. Things that haven’t changed…

Xavi, International Project Manager
Memory of when you started… “Twenty years and, although it sounds clichéd, it seems like it was yesterday. EDI, system integration, LOT files, everything was new to me, but being in the company of extraordinary people enabled me to overcome obstacles and grow professionally. I started at the same time as Ana Muñoz, Jorge Pradas and José Villanueva, with whom I share memories of our beginnings”. Evolution… “When you have been part of a project for 20 years, it becomes more than just a job. I have been fortunate to develop professionally at the same time as EDICOM was growing… as a business and this gives you an extraordinary added value that you can apply in any area of life. It helps you to know how to give value to things and adopt a broader perspective to face any challenge”. Things that haven’t changed… “Commitment, cross-department support and perseverance have been and continue to be the key to our success”. Read more “Xavi, International Project Manager”
