I recently joined BearingPoint as a technology consultant and have already had the opportunity to work on three completely different projects in the public sector. I also gained lots of agile methodology experience in multiple development roles from being a member of the team delivering a cloud based online application for a large Government department and developing a data analytics prototype for another Government department.
In my current project, a normal day would include a status meeting with my project manager and team members to provide and get a progress update, to define the next development steps as well as implementing and testing new functionality for the next release. Apart from this, a normal day can also include a meeting with clients and our business analyst to speak about new requirements of the project, propose solutions as well as supporting our testers during the test phase of the project.
Outside the office
Outside of work, I love to travel and experience new scenery and food! I recently moved to Ireland and I’m still discovering places in and outside of Dublin. I also enjoy spending an evening with friends, listening to music, going to the movies and I really love reading – everything from crime fiction to mathematical and algorithmic books. On a nice summer day I enjoy swimming in a lake or the sea. I also love to play tennis and when there is enough snow in Austria I like to go skiing in the winter.
