Steelcase is hiring talents

About 7 months ago I got hired by a company I did not know much at the time, but I learned to love and consider my second home. The name of the company is Steelcase, it was founded in Grand Rapids, Michigan, US in 1912, and they just opened a Global Business Center in Cluj-Napoca. Since November 2011, the GBC grew quickly from 0 to 50 employees in a heart beat,  but we still have several positions open before reaching the desired critical mass that will allow us to become the excellence center we desire to be for our colleagues all around the world, in various fields like Finance, IT, Application support, Web Application Development etc.

Steelcase is one of the world’s leaders in office furniture manufacturing and currently develops products related to interior architecture, furniture and technology. As I said above, we just turned 100 years old in 2012, so we have lots and lots of celebrations going around all year long, celebrations you can read about on

I’ve personally met people working in this company for decades, (as long as 20 or 30 years) both in North America and Europe, so that, added to our considerable corporate experience gained in the past 100 years should make a very good indicator about the type of company we are. I am going to repeat this article over the following weeks with different job descriptions, so stay tuned!

Today, I’m going to present you the Job Description for the two IT Service Desk Analyst positions we have open:
