My roller coaster journey started
roughly 6 years ago as a Junior Developer and continues today as a Development
Lead. I had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects, ranging from
simple to complex, one person to 30+ people, from "legacy" to
One of the most challenging projects spanned for over a year and a half. It meant turning a proof of concept into a production ready application, offering both complexity and a lot of freedom, all within tight deadlines. Each milestone meant additional budget and higher confidence towards the finished product. Apart from the technical challenge, maybe a far more important factor was the human factor, as it required synchronisation between teams across a 9-hour time difference.
The one-weekend proof of concept finally received the full vote of confidence from the investors and contributed to a finished product that now improves energy consumption and ensures cost efficiency with the potential of having an impact on millions of people. This was a valuable lesson for me, as things may seem impossible at the first glance, but thinking everything through and taking small steps often helps to overcome great challenges.
Along the way I came across a lot of opportunities to learn from those around me, as well as to pass on part of my knowledge to others. Endava offered me the perfect environment to build my confidence and speak up. Whether in internal sessions or even presenting at conferences such as Codecamp, I dare to say that I no longer suffer from stage fright as much as I did years back.
As a technical and final interviewer, I’ve been able to develop my communication skills, because over time I’ve interacted with all kinds of people with diverse professional and personal backgrounds.
