Life at Nostra

Since joining Nostra in April of this year my exposure to new technologies has broadened quite considerably and my knowledge continues to grow on daily basis, there is a great team work ethic here and no one is ever too busy to help out with an issue. Being a road engineer previously and largely working on my own it’s great to have such knowledgeable colleagues to work with. Moving to Nostra has proved to be a very good decision for me.
