Bringing innovation to life from new office in Ostrava

01/11/2014 2 comments

The demand for profiq’s services from Silicon Valley based hi-tech companies is increasing. This brings new opportunities for technical talent in the Ostrava region. People started seeing us as a competitive alternative to existing IT vendors on the job market of the region, even before moving to Ostrava. Opening a new engineering center in Ostrava increases our dedication to being the alternative.

Most of all, we are now even closer (couldn’t be any closer than that 🙂 ) to university students to enable them to work on technically challenging projects. We welcome fresh graduates with IT background, who are eager to bring innovation in technology to life.

Please visit us to have a chat in person over a coffee or tea. We are interested in hearing from you and ready to share things that you may be interested in hearing about us. You can find us just next to Technical University of Ostrava at premises of Business Incubator on Studentska 6202/17, Ostrava – Poruba:

Studentska

If you do not have a way around, please check our currently open positions at jobs.profiq.cz or contact us at jobs@profiq.cz. We are happy to get in touch!

Use cases for Liferay integration with Amazon S3

01/07/2013 Leave a comment

We have been exploring capabilities of integrating Liferay with Amazon’s S3 storage service set for documents library repository. In one of our previous article we have introduced the purpose of integrating Liferay with Amazon S3 and provided basic information on how to setup those 2 systems to talk to each other. Liferay’s introduction on document management discusses some of the common business use cases and I thought I could elaborate on those in more details with regards to Liferay’s use of Amazon S3 services. In below article I’ll try to describe use cases and features that you might come across when you start considering and using Liferay.

12/10/2011 Leave a comment

Bunch of us just attended Lates conference where overall theme was

Testing – The way to better quality of software

Conference has been targeted to people responsible for overall software quality such as CIO, COO, CFO, Test managers, support managers or people that take over software solutions from their vendors.

I’m not going to describe how event went or comment on general conference highlights (although it was overall pretty good), but rather let me just put down some points we have collected during presentations. Non of these ideas are novel or eye-opening, it is however good to re-iterate them from time to time, especially when you consider improving your quality or engage with test professionals:
