How did you end up at Medisol?
I was in need of a new challenge when I saw Medisol’s vacancy looking for a web developer. I applied and after a few interviews, I had a very good impression of Medisol. So, when I got a contract offer, I happily joined the company.
What is your role at Medisol?
Software Developer. My main responsibility is maintaining and improving Medisol’s Service Portal, but when needed, I help my colleagues with other projects as well.
What does an average day at Medisol look like?
I usually check my emails and try to complete some simpler/ quicker tasks before our daily stand-up. During the stand-up, each developer discusses what they’ve worked on the previous day, what they’re going to work on that day and if they need help with anything. Afterwards, I start working on any tickets assigned to me. Usually these relate to improving existing or adding new features, but sometimes there’s a bug that needs fixing. Throughout the day, someone from a different team may run into issues, so I try to help them the best I can.
We also spend some time each day reviewing and testing each other’s code to ensure code quality is as high as possible.
What drives you? Why do you do this job?
I love the problem-solving aspect of Software Development. There’s usually more than one way of solving a specific problem, and exploring these different options in search of the best one is something I enjoy a lot. Beyond that, you never stop learning as a developer so there’s always a sense of self-improvement. Lastly, being able to create something yourself and shape it to how you want it to be is not only a lot of fun but very useful too.
What makes it so much fun to work at Medisol?
Everyone is very easy to get along with, which in turn makes it easy to work with them. We all work hard, but still find time for a chat, so there’s a very stress-free working environment. Knowing you play a small part in saving peoples’ lives definitely helps too!
