hi there, I'm István Kis

IT professional




I am a computer engineer graduated from BUTE, also a blogger since 2003, podcaster since 2020, and founder editor of Grundaktiv. Previously I worked as a freelance developer and designer.

Since 2009, I have been working for IT division of Intesa Sanpaolo's subsidiary in many roles (system engineer, head of operation, head of system analysis), currently as Head of DevOps Engineering, leading 7 IT experts. Every work related experience is summarized on my Linkedin page.

I am a big fan of online education, such as Coursera and Udemy. My hobbies are travelling, running, bicycle, playing soccer, chess, watching movies, trips, theater. I also learn a lot about ethical hacking, which is quite a big love from my childhood. I spend most of my free time with my girlfriend, friends and family.

If you are interested in it, you can check my podcast called kultúr sufni, or my personal blog also. Both are Hungarian.
