“I’m given a lot of trust and confidence to get on with my job and solve problems.”

Robert. P
Finance Business Partner, UK

Read full story

I really like the variety of my role. One day I might be looking at our operations from a financial perspective to ensure there is a return on investment, and the next I could be working with sales to help them understand our customers more and target the best segments.

I feel supported and I’m given the skills I need to work with other departments in better ways. The company has funded my ACCA exams all the way through, giving me study leave to prepare for each one.

The best thing about the Finance department is that we have a really good team spirit. I’m given a lot of trust and confidence to get on with my job and solve problems. It’s really rewarding, especially when I work on large projects that save the company large amounts of money.

I won Employee of the Year in 2017 for my contribution to various projects that year, one of which increased our annual revenue by £1.5 million.

Robert started as Finance Business Controller and has since been promoted to Finance Business Partner in the UK.

“I value the relationship I have with my superiors – there’s a mutual respect on both sides.”

Roland S.
Senior Facility Engineer, Austria

Read full story

The best thing about working here is the communication with my team. For every problem you encounter, you have at least one or two colleagues that will help you to solve it or improve a procedure.

We know our work is crucial for the company so we treat every task with respect, but we also really like to laugh and make jokes. A busy working day is easier to conquer with a smile on your face.

Almost every employee has their own parking space. If we don’t want to use our parking spot, we can give it back and get subsidised public transport costs instead. There are two supermarkets nearby and a canteen. If you’re not in a rush and can extend your lunch break, there are some really good restaurants and Viennese inns near us.

In my five years here, I’ve never had a day where I had to force myself to go to work, and that’s quite an accomplishment for a company these days. I value the relationship I have with my superiors – there’s a mutual respect on both sides and that’s one of the most important things for me.

Roland started as a Facility Shift Engineer. He is now an Operator, and was the first person to take on this role.

“I really like the friendly, international atmosphere.”

Martin H.
Finance Assistant, Finance

Read full story


On a typical day, I have breakfast in the break out area. I enjoy the free fruit the company provides, or I go to the supermarket close by. My first task is answering emails, then I have lunch. In the afternoon I do my standard tasks like invoice processing and agreements. I enjoy seeing the progress of the company in the form of invoices and numbers.

Every year, we have a get-together with a coach where everyone talks about their challenges and highlights over the last year. You get to know a lot about each department, which is very informative and motivating.

I really like the friendly, international atmosphere. We do a lot of sports activities, like running on Mondays and beach volleyball on Wednesdays. There are a lot of health conscious people here, with many different interests. I feel like every day is a chance to learn something new.

Our seniors are very helpful and interested in our personal and professional growth. The company pays for online language classes and exams.

“Senior managers have always showed their appreciation for our hard work.”

Ashley de V.
Data Centre Technician

Read full story

One of the first things I noticed when I started here was how friendly and welcoming everyone was. Senior managers have always showed their appreciation for our hard work, which makes me want to put that extra effort into everything I do.

The office space is great for the size of our team, with a big kitchen area which is great for getting together with everyone for lunch or fika, as you do in Sweden. The best facilities we have in the building are the gym, sauna and swimming pool, which I take advantage of in my free time.

Being part of the 24/7 Customer Support team, we have a few shared workspace areas and hot desks which we use when we move from one side of the building to the other when responding to jobs, which helps a lot. 

It is very social and collaborative. Every Friday everyone sits down for breakfast together and has a catch up, which is a nice way to get to know everyone.

Ashley is a Data Centre Technician and part of the 24/7 Customer Support team. He worked in the UK before transferring to Sweden.

“My hobby is also my job, and I always enjoy going to work.”

Daniel P.
Service Operations Engineer, Sweden

Read full story

I take care of the infrastructure in the data centres, the cooling, backup power and ventilation. I like the job because it’s very interesting and I learn about new equipment and how to control technical devices. I’ve found myself in a position where my hobby is also my job, and I always enjoy going to work.

I usually start by planning the day to make sure that both booked appointments and maintenance are taken care of. Then I usually go out on site to meet up with the contractors and my colleagues to perform our daily tasks.

Most of the challenges I face are when I’m planning for jobs I’ve never done before. It’s challenging to work out the small details, the method, how long it will take, which contractors to use and how to fit things together.

It’s a great place to work for people who want to keep developing in their area. We have a very good induction programme for new employees, which states that we should always continue learning.

Daniel is a Service Operations Engineer in Sweden.

“I am inspired to give the job my all.”

Heinrich H.
Manager Operations. Belgium

Read full story

Every day there is a new challenge or a surprise. There is always an unplanned element and if I make a schedule for the day, there is a big chance that the day will look different. It’s very dynamic but I like the challenge of organising and managing it with my team. It makes my job fun.

The office is in an industrial area just outside a town and there are many nice restaurants nearby. There are bus stops right around the corner, the airport is 10 minutes’ drive away, and there are connections by trains and a car park on the premises.

Every employee should attend the ICM once so they understand what a great company we work for. I loved seeing how people interact with each other and how open the culture is. There was a very good vibe.

There is an international Manager Operations community and we come together three or four times a year to share ideas and problems. There is a lot of support from headquarters. The overall attitude is very positive and open-minded, I’m inspired to give the job my all.

Heinrich is a Manager Operations in Belgium.

“I’ve witnessed the company grow over the years and I feel like part of the evolution.”

Eva H.
Senior Finance Assistant, Spain

Read full story

Our office furniture has recently been completely overhauled and facilities for customers have been added, like a new office area, meeting rooms and a space for breaks. The office is well connected by public transport and there are parking spaces. It is located in an industrial area but the neighbourhood is changing day to day, with new apartments and restaurants springing up.

Lunch is paid for by the company and there are two different restaurants where you can order meals to eat in the office dining area. If you want to have lunch outside the office, there are a lot of restaurants nearby.

I like coming to work because there are great people and a positive atmosphere. The office culture is in line with our core values: courage, passion, teamwork and customer focus. Above all we are committed to teamwork, which I think is the most important value in any workplace.

I’ve witnessed the company grow over the years, and I feel like part of the evolution. My work is given recognition and I’m valued.

“Everyone’s attitude and commitment to improving is what makes us successful and I enjoy being a part of that.”

Mark B.
Technical Project Manager, Ireland

Read full story

The office environment is very welcoming, with a good atmosphere and team spirit. It’s very easy to settle in as a new employee. We have excellent facilities, with a kitchen, showers, TV and complimentary snacks. The business park is very nice with lots of space, nature and a lake with wildlife, which is great for a walk or run at lunchtime. There’s plenty of parking on site with a perimeter fence and 24/7 security, or you can get a bus or cycle here.

Anything you need to do your job effectively will generally be accommodated. Management’s doors are always open, which is a great support and an important part of the culture. There are opportunities to gain valuable experience and progress your career both at a local and company wide level, with most roles offering the chance to travel at some point.

I am passionate about doing things the right way and I enjoy leading a project from start to finish. I find collaborating and listening to people’s opinions very beneficial, so I involve other members of the team where I can to create a more rounded solution. I also enjoy deep-diving into the more technical aspects and understanding why things work the way they do. Working here allows for that variation.

The fast-paced, ever changing environment is a challenge, but everyone’s attitude and commitment to improving is what makes us successful and I enjoy being a part of that.

Mark started as an intern as part of his master’s degree. He returned after graduating as a Project Engineer and has since been promoted to Technical Project Manager in Ireland.

“What do I like most about my job? The high degree of personal responsibility and the freedom I have.”

Umair M
Facility Engineer and Team Leader, Germany

Read full story

I am one of three team leaders in my facility department in Frankfurt and have been part of Interxion for almost two years. I started as a facility engineer and, within only a short time, I was promoted to team leader for the campus in Frankfurt’s Weismüllerstraße.

What I appreciate most here is the high level of personal responsibility and the freedom I have in my job. This allows us to be quite flexible in our activities. Working in our data centers constantly presents us with new challenges, which we can master thanks to our ongoing training. The management is available and responsive, always ready to listen, especially when we need support in decision-making in a critical situation.

The combination of a perfect team and a perfect working environment gives me the motivation to make Interxion even better every day. Thanks to flexible working hours, our employees come to work in a relaxed manner. The office culture is very team-oriented, and we treat each other less like colleagues and more like friends. At the beginning of the year, we get together for a kick-off meeting where we get to know the other departments and our colleagues, take part in workshops together and compete as a team in the annual company run. And: many of us have also become friends.
