“I spent this time expanding my experience in .NET, C #, and frontend technologies, all under the watchful eye of our Team Leaders. Their mentoring allowed me to develop a lot of my skills” said Piotrek, who works as Senior Software Engineer/Team Leader at ANIXE in Wrocław for 12 years.
You have been working at ANIXE for over ten years now, what was it like at the beginning?
I joined ANIXE in 2008, even before graduating from university. To begin with, I worked on aviation projects, including the Portuguese Airline, TAP. I spent this time expanding my experience in .NET, C #, and frontend technologies, all under the watchful eye of our Team Leaders. Their mentoring allowed me to develop a lot of my skills. Over the next couple of years, I expanded my experience by working with various tourism products: hotels, packages (hotel and flight), our cars, but in 2014 I returned to the TAP team. Finally, a year later, I became the Team Leader of this team.
Tell me, what has been the biggest challenge during your time at ANIXE
It is difficult for me to say as I have come across quite a few demanding problems during my many years of work. So if I have to pick one, it would be the redesign for TAP. The main challenge of this project was its size and the fast delivery times involved. The plan was to rewrite a new booking system for our clients while adding new courses in three months. Thanks to the joint work of the entire team, we were able to finish this project on time.
What do you think has changed at ANIXE in the past 12 years?
Our company has been transformed from a small organization into a large player in the IT market for tourist services over recent years. There is also a noticeable greater technological diversity, which favorably allows for more development in many areas.
What do you value most about ANIXE?
The people who work here. They are very committed to what they do and able to work in a team. Plus, I love spending time with them after work, such as a trip to Ślęża mountain or riding bikes together.
Speaking of which… how do you spend your time after work?
There is plenty. Starting with strategy games, mountain climbing, and ending with football. I do not knock good literature and an SF film.
