Sandra Grosz, Android Developer
You work as an Android Developer, tell us a little about what your days consist of?
My tasks vary from day to day and depend on what is in the plan going forward. It can be anything from thinking about how we can improve the architecture in the Android app, make sure we keep our codebase up-to-date with what is going on in the Android world, troubleshoot and fix bugs, and build new functionality. As new things are constantly happening in Android, I also make sure to keep track when there are updates, or when new libraries and components are released that can be used to build an even better app - and of course, makes life easier for us developers.
How do you build a good team spirit in the working group?
We have syncs every morning and check in on what’s happening during the day and what we’re all working on. It’s a very open climate where we can raise thoughts and reflections on things we work on, or want to improve, which makes you feel very welcome and gets you into the team spirit quickly. Every week we plan what our focus is on during the week, to work towards our short-term and long-term goals, and where we all help each other to achieve these.
iOS or Android?
As an Android developer, I have to say Android of course! Using Android myself makes it easier to be an expert on what is happening on the platform, what the most common behaviors are, and knowing what users will recognize or not, in order to deliver the best customer experience.
A dish that you like to eat several days a week?
I don’t think I would be able to eat a dish several days a week. I prefer variation in what I eat, but if I have to choose, I am currently very snowed in on bibimbap.
