Development Team Leader – SanjeevOn October 17, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
So I joined as a Software Developer. I moved on to be a Senior Developer. Recently I’ve been promoted to a Development Team Leader. There’s a range of IT professionals throughout the department who work closely together to deliver projects. These range from DBAs, developers, testers, the support desk there’s the Infrastructure team and there’s project managers and BAs making up about 100 members of staff. We’re very cutting edge – we’re trying to keep ahead of the game and we’re trying to keep up to date with current technologies. At the moment, I’m working on a key project which has been running in Agile methodology. So every day, we start with a scrum. We’ll talk about what we achieved yesterday and we’ll talk about what we’re going to achieve on that day as well. It’s my role as a scrum master – I’ll do development but I’ll also make sure the project’s delivered on time. So I love the fact that there’s a gym on site. It allows me to go to the gym at lunchtime and just give me an energy boost for the rest of the day. I think it’s important to work for a company with strong values. We’re working in the financial industry dealing with customers’ money so they need to know they can trust us.
