Who are you?
You have a master’s degree in computer science. You like to get your hands dirty, and you also know how to design larger systems. You routinely make technology choices and design choices, making trade-offs based on the current needs. While you strive for using off-the-shelf solutions, you can design components, frameworks and algorithms yourself when needed. You like to discuss designs with the rest of your team, explaining your ideas e.g. with UML. You are communicative, and maybe you even aspire to become technical team lead in the future.
What will you be doing ?
Work on expanding and improving eXLent, an online measurement platform for the oil and gas industry. You will be doing this in a growing, well-collaborating SCRUM team of 5 colleagues, who take pride in their continuous improvement. Because this is a rather new project, you get to work with a wide range of new technologies. You and your team have all the freedom to determine the approach. eXLent is being built with Node.JS, TypeScript, React and Docker and lots more, utilizing a thorough development and testing process.
What is a typical workday like?
You arrive somewhere between 7:00 and 9:30 am. You quickly check the continuous integration system. Everything is OK: the build, the unit tests, and the end-to-end tests. The code coverage is within limits. In a brief daily stand-up meeting, the team decides on the work break-down for the day. Together with a colleague, you will work on investigating a new feature. The goal is to design the feature well enough so that its implementation can be estimated and planned in the next sprint planning. You and your colleague compare different solutions and discuss the pros and cons of each solution. Finally, you put the results on the wiki and the story goes to “Implemented”. Another story is marked ‘Implemented’ as well, so you perform a peer review. You have a couple of comments, which you note on the story. When they are resolved, it will look great. You go home feeling satisfied. Tomorrow you will be probably working on a new feature.
