    Great Team
    Hi, my name is Tomas and I’m a team manager. I started my career at DHL IT Services back in 2013, when I took a role as Senior Network Engineer in the Telecom Consultancy team. Gaining more hands-on experience with network technologies has always fascinated me, so I stayed with the team which went through several transformations. From there, I moved fast through the company ladder and soon landed a Principal Engineer role. In 2023, I moved to a management role, leading my original team. Together with the strong support of a multinational & diverse team, we are working on our common ambition – technology. Looking forward to having you onboard!
