“At ANIXE, I’m someone with a name and personality”- said Alberto, who came to Poland from Spain. He loves fast cars, plays drums in his free time and works at ANIXE as a Front-end Developer.
- What does a Front-end Developer do at ANIXE?
Everything the end-user sees, and clicks is my job. This process starts when I receive a mockup of an application. For those who don’t know, the mockup is a realistic representation of what the app will eventually look like. After receiving it, I implement the code to make the graphic elements, which have already been prepared by the UX Designer, interactive for a user in real life. Of course, it is much more complicated than it sounds.
- You seem to like your job. What do you like the most about it?
It is very challenging. I work in different projects that differ in many ways from one another. There are a million things to improve. It is difficult, but also it develops and improves my skills. I also feel that I am doing something important here and my work is appreciated.
- People often say that developers are introverts who work alone. What do you think about this view?
Creating and developing code is not individual work, it is real teamwork! After I finish my system, I have to split it into a different merge request, and another person from my team checks its quality. If it does not adapt to the standards or it is not optimized or impacts other components, I will modify this code until it is acceptable. When it’s finished, it goes for acceptance and production, and then it is ready for end users.
- You worked for a big corporation, how does ANIXE differ?
Here at ANIXE, you have very close connections with people, and everyone treats you kindly. I can talk directly with a Product Owner and a UX Designer. I don’t need to escalate my problems step by step. I can go straight to the person from whom I need help. I can message them on Slack and get the answer. It is all more human. In a corporation, there is nothing like individual treatment, and you are part of the big machine with no names and no needs. At ANIXE, I am someone with a name and personality. That’s why I prefer to work in a smaller company, where you know everybody.
Besides that, for me, ANIXE means great people. Everyone helps each other, and this is amazing. You are never left alone with your problem.
