Karolina Kamieniecka, Senior Engineer, Security at Egnyte
Poland Egnyter Karolina is a testament to the payoff of following your dreams. Growing up, her mother’s career involved computers, so she knew from a young age that she wanted to work with them, too. When the time came, she attended university to study computer science, and her career took off from there.
Infinite Opportunities in Security
After completing several internships throughout school, Karolina’s first full-time role was focused on delivering security services. During this time, she was able to work across teams to try out some of the other ways one can be involved in the industry, and she was never bored. With a field as broad as security, there are infinite opportunities, and she took advantage of the ability to gain experience in other disciplines within the security space.
Eventually, Karolina was looking to work with bigger, more complicated systems where she could see the results of her input. Previous roles, like building apps, were a great stepping stone, but after a project was completed she often didn’t know what happened when her involvement ended.
At Egnyte, Karolina can see how her decisions impact the environment and use these insights to improve going forward. She can see the direct results of her work, and track what worked, or what didn’t. Being able to follow and remain involved in the full lifecycle of her work has allowed her to gain new sets of skills and experiences that only solidified and expanded her passion for the industry.
Evolve by Connecting with Peers
Karolina appreciates that Egnyte gives her the freedom to try new things. Collaborating with other Egnyters across teams on projects offers an opportunity to learn from one another. And in her experience, one of the best ways to continue your education in the ever-evolving security field is to connect with your peers.
Make those connections, have those conversations, and you’ll continue to grow. There is always something to learn, and finding a network of people who are just as passionate about security will take you far. When it comes to staying up to date with the latest trends and changes, online courses offer great information that Karolina then builds on with her own research.
After a year at Egnyte, Karolina is looking forward to the future. Her team is growing, the product is improving, and there is always a fun project to dive into.
