Jure, Software Developer, former student of the
Faculty of Mathematics and Physics.
Upon my return from postdoctoral studies in America, I had a choice of several opportunities for the continuance of my professional career. There are many reasons why I decided on Adacta. I had a friend who at that time was already working in the team I applied to, so he had a good insight of the work I would be doing, as well as of the team’s dynamics. Besides, in my opinion, Adacta has perfected the process of employment and has a fair relationship towards potential new employees, since, at all times, I had the feeling that they really wanted to see me working for them. At the same time, they trusted in my knowledge even though I had not worked with such technologies until then. Of course, they offer a competitive salary as well. What programming languages do you work with?
At Adacta I work within the group that develops a system for selling insurance policies. Currently, we are developing a new version of this system, which makes the work more diverse. Among the sole code writing, my work also includes planning the work process for our users, improving the environment for easier development and configuration of the system, and the configuration of test products. Because the system is new, good collaboration between the teams is also essential.
The biggest plus is most definitely that in one year I have learned tons. Not only about programming and programme design, but also about the insurance business itself and working in and between teams. I love that I am working on the new version of the product, where I can help with architectural decisions that affect future development. Another advantage is collaboration among teams because you meet many interesting people. However, working for a big organisation means that you do not choose your work, but that the tasks come from elsewhere.
