Is Business Process Automation team more about robots or people?

Both. But more about people. Are you someone who sees the beauty in freeing up people from repetitive tasks by automating them? Join the ride! 

If you scrolled down our website, you might have realized we care about integrity and open communication. That's why, before you join our team, we would like to give you a chance to find out what are the team and job all about.

Our BPA team is all about robots. Robi, Robotek, dela, ne dela, obdelano. Almost half of our RPA clients are Slovenians, meaning številka, hitro, and lahko will be your first Bonsai words. 

What will your workday look like? 

You will start with a daily team sync and during the day, you will do your best to automate processes by mainly using Microsoft Power Automate and sometimes the UiPath automation platform. Client’s calls will split that task, so that’s when you will be able to show your newly-gathered Slovenian knowledge. Don’t worry, you already know the majority of the necessary words. Pablo will take care of the rest. 

While your robots are running, you will have just enough time to take a sip (or two) of your coffee, Cedevita, tea, or Jamnica from our office stash with your colleagues. Then, when you are all hydrated and energetic, some zigzagging from bug fixing to automating your process will faithfully be waiting for you.

One thing you can be sure of. You will be able to end your day calmly, knowing that your process will be there for you tomorrow, the day after, and the day after until you push it to production.

On Thursdays, you will probably want to join the rest of the team at Čelin - an after-work pelin where you will get to know better colleagues from other teams who like to work from home. 

More info about the technology

Most of the processes are made with the help of Microsoft Power Automate Desktop, and when the opportunity arises, we also use UiPath.

Unless it is cited differently in the job application you are applying for, you don’t need previous RPA experience. We like to assign you a buddy first week or two - someone to show you around the platform, share tips and tricks with you, and make your life in BPA easier.

Do you need to have experience with automation platforms?

Any coding experience and general computer knowledge will get you far in this field of work. But what makes an RPA developer great is their ability to understand clients’ actual needs and the skill to build code that will satisfy those needs.

As you may have heard before, every project is specific to the IT industry. Sometimes clients are pretty clear about their wants, and other times we get their pain points and use the given opportunity to express our creativity.  

Meet the team 

Sana appreciates two things – specific humor and frequent feedback. Sana often experiences challenges with her processes (a tip: don’t mention number 12 around her), but she always finds a way to show them who the software robots’ tamer is. Also, she adores cats but is allergic to them – ŽVT BRB.  

"Sana started by asking a lot of questions and ended up being the one with a lot of answers. That's why she's BPA's MVP." - Pablo, the RPA champion

Arči is an ex-marketing person and a rising RPA star. He is also allergic to cats, but that doesn’t stop his wife from having two of them at their home. Lovely cats, itchy-skin Arči – život je život.

Antonio likes to wear a yellow hoodie on cold winter days to warm up our office. Maybe that’s because we gave him chills on the job interview. Nothing personal, it was just cold outside. But, of course, the blame was partly his since he had a lot of impressive things to share with us.

And then, there is Josip. When we go to team buildings he likes to bring his (American) football ball that nobody knows how to throw. Fun times indeed. He is a positive attitude human, a child in a man’s body, always ready to drink a cup of coffee with you.

Matej has a love-hate relationship with software robots. His mood goes from relaxed to stressed in seconds while playing hide and seek with errors. When robots and processes aren’t occupying his mind, he is patient and calm, happy to have time for learning new things.

Bonsai's melomaniac is Marko, for sure. He's been feeding our ears with the finest tunes – from Balkan techno beats all the way to old-school hip hop, he simply never misses. Also, Marko is the first person on the team to start a new sales deal for a client - much respect for this guy.

Hrvoje is our only RPA Consultant and is fantastic at his job. Everybody says that Pablo (you'll read more about him in the next paragraph) is our King of the grill, but Hrvoje is indeed close on his heels. 

- Pablo, what are you doing? – I’m on a call. – Pablo, do you have a minute. – I have seven before I’m off to a call. – Pablo, you haven’t finished your lunch. – Gotta go, to a call.

Due to the amount of time, Pablo spends on calls, it seems like RPA clients like his voice. No wonder, if he wasn’t the RPA Team Lead, he would probably become a radio host. Besides his good voice, the team appreciates his organizational skills, good humor, and thoughtfulness.
