„I commenced my career with Evolvice 3 years ago as an administrative assistant.
Evolvice is not just a place to work; it is a place to develop myself, learn from a qualified team, grow, and have a social life with lovely friends that will last.
Evolvice is transmuting now, developing, and getting bigger. Last year, we integrated more than 20 employees into the team.
And recently we signed an agreement with ITIDA and the Egyptian Government. It’s a colossal integration for Evolvice, as a German company. It’s also our contribution to increasing Egypt’s employment and improving local talent’s expertise. It was fantastic to be amongst 29 incredibly enormous corporations.
I am so proud to be one of Evolvice’s employees and to witness its growth year by year.“
