I’m able to see concrete outcome of my work

Oct 18, 2016 | News, People

“My interest towards IT started at the end of secondary school. In the middle of 90’s IT was one of the most promising and interesting things in Estonia.

I have worked at Profit for 10 years. I’m both Project manager and Developer. In my work I need project management skills but can also learn different things as Developer.

In this work I like most independency. I feel that there is always space for creativity and how things are implemented. After workday it’s nice that I can see my results immediately, I have done something concrete. Of course I have to mention that my colleagues and good working environment are important things as well.

My day starts usually with e-mail checkup. I might contact customer and team members. After this I start to analyze or develop something. Usually I plan my work on weekly basis, not on a daily basis.

IT industry is so huge that there is space for everything. Every year something new comes up and every year there’s something new happening in our company, new tools or technologies. I like it and it’s a normal thing for me. Software engineering in overall has the same basic rules, new technologies and new ways of doing things just enable companies to do their job better.

If you are interested in working with IT issues I recommend that you try different things. I for example started with doing webpages. There is opportunity to work with different things: coding, graphics, data analyzing etc. By doing this you might find the thing you’re really good at!”
