about winning

Charity auction

There are so many ways to win…

DGITAL is an energetic new company, packed with talented, action-oriented people. We believe we can make this world a better place and this is not just a phrase. Obviously we are creating world-class software and offering outstanding services which is a great contribution in itself, but there’s more: we are actively creating opportunities for the next generation. We have the power to stand up for a good cause and so we do.



That is why we decided to participate in the charity auction organised by Sourcing Hungary Kft in favour of nurseries in Nepal and Hungary and they won David Klein for the cause. The auction itself was great fun, we enjoyed every minute. The beneficiaries - Jamune Yuba Club and “ADJ ESÉLYT” Alapítvány - already received our blessings and support when we visited the Sourcing headquarters where we met Dávid - and again we had fun and chatted a lot. Dávid was really cool, answered a million of our questions about mountaineering, expeditions and the Himalayas (not to mention agoraphobia).

UEFA EURO 2016

Yeah, those who enjoy good football are also winners of every match. Look at these guys: you enter the room, they work - business as usual, not one of them cares about the back wall, although they are a wee bit fishy.



Then they hear something or catch a glimpse, some (most) heads turn, you can feel the tension building. Clearly, something’s happening back there.



Finally, the excitement bursts out, everyone talks and laughs, having a great time. Just a few seconds later they all returned to their monitors once again, planning/writing/testing code.




JIRA & Trello

Daily standup meetings at 9 am. 15 people in a cubicle. Summer, no AC, tech people, smell. My first experience of Scrum. Sprint reviews, retrospective, planning poker, ticket workflows, swim lanes, timesheets, stakeholders, shareholders, scrum master, product owner, kanban, six sigma, lean, muda… this list never ends. Business wants Return on Investment, Software Engineers only want to do programming.

Irreconcilable differences. All we can do is ask the same questions over and over again: Do we need bookkeeping? Can a project be finished? What are the qualities of a good developer? Do we need specification? Is the project worth doing? Every project needs bookkeeping, every project needs guidelines and objective measures.

It doesn’t matter what we choose, but we do need to choose something. Here at DGITALwe use JIRA and Trello. We use them for keeping track of our projects, tasks and bugs. We even use Agile carefully, very carefully

Juli Domány joined the Wizz Tours team as content manager. She is now behind the bi-weekly newsletters and also updates all kinds of contents for the site.


We Moved to a New Office

We moved to a new office at the very beginning of this month. Although it is only 10 meters away from the old one - which we continue to use - we celebrated with a grand breakfast. We had frutti di mare bites and also sandwiches, sweets and snacks from Házikó.




We Hire Professionals

In November, Gábor Bauer as Lead developer and Attila Cseh as Backend developer joined our team. But we are not done hiring, click here if you are the Backend or Frontend developer we are looking for, send us your CV to cv@dgital.com


The Magic of Number ONE - all about firsts

Our first site re-development project for Wizz Tours went live successfully within an extremely short implementation period. The project will continue to evolve and we will keep you informed.

For the first time in history: our recruiters shifted gears lately and thanks to their continuous efforts … MILESTONE ALERT! … our population reached ten(!) people, now including: Péter Gigler, who doesn’t seem new at all, he sits where he always has, doing what he can do best, only he is now working in DGITAL colors. Taking care of team members is top priority as finding new ways to cheer them up.


Refreshments are important. We are aware of that. Especially coffee. We know it, we all share the passion. So. In addition to the electric-yellow pixie for Nespresso, we now have a Gaggia Classic to brew fine coffee. These two will brighten your days for sure. Don’t you think we should hire a barista now?


You have a kid and dreaming of a beautiful and friendly place where they can have fun while you work? We have good news for you! Finalization of the DGITAL nursery contract with BDO is only a matter of days. Just wait until you see their spacious, colorful playrooms, I promise, you’ll wish to stay with them :)
