We heard from an Alpha Technology Services Developer, Olof Omling, to learn what sets his job apart, and why he enjoys working there...
At Alpha, you don't just do one thing. I work as a developer, and also as a consultant, so I get to enjoy the best bits of both positions. This makes for a really diverse role and means every day is different.
At some businesses, working as a developer means you end up shut away in a room, working on your own. At Alpha, however, being part of a consultancy means everything you do is client-focused. I get to go away and crack a problem, and then share my results with my peers and with clients.
I enjoy a variety of different things about my role. On the developer side, I get to work on something tangible, a product that I can see taking shape; and on the consulting side, I engage directly with clients and make sure I'm meeting their needs.
This really appeals to the way I work. I get to go away and crack a problem, and then share my results with my peers, and with clients. Being part of the team that presents results to clients also challenges you in new ways. I get to discuss my work in a dynamic environment, fielding questions and being put on the spot; it makes you really think through what you’ve done, and also keeps the clients’ need foremost in my mind when I am working.
The result is that you learn a lot faster and build skills to make sure you’re doing your job as well as possible, because you have direct feedback from those who are using or interacting with our technology solutions.
