Hillary Ovaga, DevOps Engineer
“Before joining APG I worked for SmartStream Technologies in Bristol, England. The company supplied APG with TLM Reconciliation software, so I already knew APG well. After nine years at SmartStream I was ready for an exciting foreign adventure. When I told APG relations about my plans, they mentioned the possibility of an expat like me working at APG in the Netherlands. I was immediately excited. Both the adventure and the country appealed to me; I remembered the beautiful stories my father used to tell about the time he spent in the Netherlands on a Dutch scholarship.
I joined APG in 2019 as a Senior Business Application Consultant, a title that has since been changed to DevOps Engineer 4. APG supported me with the ‘foreign local welcome package’, a plane ticket, finding housing, moving expenses and providing help with my tax returns for the first two years.
