A day as Software Developer at LC
A normal day as Developer at Lind Capital starts with a check-up on all systems to clarify that they are up and running as expected. If they, for some reason, have a bug, it is first priority to fix this because other teams’ work might be affected by it.
Our work is project orientated, which mean that the rest of the day is reserved for the project(s) you are involved in. What kind of type or size the projects have are many and varied but typically two or three developers are involved in every project and together you are responsible for the project throughout the different stages of development.
If the project is relevant for other teams, one person from this team will be involved in the project. This gives a better understanding of any business related issues in the projects, which in the end gives a better and more useful result. Furthermore, this enhances a better teamwork across the organisation.
Co-operation across teams
The fact that our systems are developed in-house means that we work with shorter processes. For example, if a bug is found in one of our systems, we have a new release ready within minutes, correcting the bug. At the same time, if a colleague from another team has an idea for a feature or improvement of a program, they only need to walk ten meters to enlighten us and then we can prioritise the idea in our backlog.
To enhance the strong team work between the Developers and the other teams, we have created a Minimum Viable Product for the other teams to use. This quick access to products means that they are included in the development process, have better insight in the project, and are able to give a more well-defined feedback.
More concrete this co-operation across teams results in a more agile and effective development process.
Focus on social engagement
Lind Capital is a workplace where our social cohesion is important to our culture. We often play a game of table soccer or PlayStation during the day. Furthermore, we arrange sports events, Friday bars or Counter Strike tournaments, and there is always a good spirit around these events.
In general there is an informal atmosphere at the office, which might be due to the horizontal organisational structure. We focus on ambitious results but at the same time we have fun and appreciate the social environment, we have here at Lind Capital.
