Oryx Gaming unites people from different countries. Many of them decided to move to Slovenia for it’s great living conditions and found Oryx to be a great place for their professional and personal development. One of them is our lovely Alena, expert in Quality Assurance team, who moved to Slovenia from Belarus.

How did you decide to work abroad and why did you choose Slovenia?

I always dreamt of experiencing working abroad. One day I and my husband decided that dreams should come true and that it is time to act! The world is so big and exciting to explore. So, we started our journey! We visited Slovenia as tourists, and we fell in love. The country is extremely beautiful, safe, and with a lot of places to go to! Slovenia also has a very good climate with plenty of sunny days.

How did you learn about Oryx Gaming?

I was like a detective. I went on LinkedIn and started to review the profiles of people from Slovenia, who worked in IT, and their work experience. I viewed around 100 profiles, learning about different IT companies, and then I found one person from Oryx. Because the gaming industry was on the top of my list, I decided to apply immediately.

How did Oryx help you with the challenges you were most concerned about?

When I came for the on-site interview, I realized that people from Oryx will help me with any problems or concerns. I had help from the legal department from the beginning of the relocation process. They helped me with document preparation, to gain the permit to live and work in Slovenia. And I felt support from different people in Oryx. I very appreciate it.

How does your daily life look now?

Every day is different, and I like it very much! The working process is dynamic, and I have different tasks during the day. Almost every day, I learn something new. People around me are very supportive and always ready to help, this is amazing!

What surprised you most about working and living in Slovenia?

I was surprised that we have a lot of common words in Slovenian, Russian and Belarusian languages. But I keep in mind that some words can be similar though not the same. You can really offend a Russian with otherwise totally polite Slovenian words.

But apart from that I like the effectiveness of working in Slovenia. I start my day early and have more free time in the afternoon. Also, you can get anywhere quickly so I get to go to the sea and to the mountains, and I found out, to my own surprise, I even prefer the mountains!

How do you see your life and career evolving from here?

I think that the best is yet to come! I always wanted to try the gaming industry, and now I am here. I see that Oryx can offer a lot of ways for personal and professional development, which is very important for me. I am enjoying the moment right here, with the people around me. And I always know that I can select different ways for my career because this industry is one of the most promising.
