RESPONSIBILITIES, YOUR NEW WORKDAY, AND CODE
As a Developer, you are the point of contact for the operations team, airlines, and customers.
OUR CLIENT has a wide range of products, from APIs, Native-Apps to special integrations with airlines. As an Engineer, you ensure that everything runs as it should and you come up with the necessary suggestions for adjustments. You are leading to new features that are conceived from operations or sales or your own thoughts. You'll discuss with them to see if they have seen it well and so come up with new processes that you can then develop yourself.
What does a day look like?
After a good night's rest, you come in to see what points should be dealt with immediately from the 24/7 operation. You look calmly at whether any systems have encountered problems and you take a nice cup of coffee. The company stand-up starts at 10.00. In this stand-up important matters are shared from all parts of the company. You get started with your feature and discuss with the Product Owner exactly how it works and what its purpose is. You have just put a new feature online and take a look at the operation to see how things are going, answer questions and come up with improvements. The day is now over and you are going home to start a fresh start tomorrow!
What happens to your code?
There is a high focus on code quality. This means that all code may only be checked in if there are some Doc blocks, tests have been written and there has been a code review.
After the code is checked in, it is automatically transferred to the test environment so that the team can test the changes. Then it is deployed to the production environment.
Deployment to production takes place about 3 times a week so the code that you wrote is immediately taken into use! They believe that if something is finished, the customer should use it as quickly as possible.
