‘Having now been with the company for over 2 ½ years – I’ve worked on infotainment, Software Over The Air, Vehicle Data Platform and many other different projects. My role is to help our software teams to push the technical direction for the solutions of some of our projects – so I take on the meetings involved in these projects and help mentor and advise our developers so that they can spend their time doing what they do best.
I started here as a Software Engineer and, at the time, didn’t envisage the role I am in now – but as the Manchester Hub grows, possibilities and roles emerge – so this has been a fantastic opportunity for me.
I have a real interest in cars and it’s a really rewarding feeling knowing that what we produce is being seen across the country and the world. There’s an immense pride in seeing something you’ve worked on physically being used by our customers.
I’ve found a real flexibility in the culture here. We have the freedom to move across programmes and projects. Working here gives everyone the chance to learn differently and develop a variety of tech skills. I know that I won’t be working on one project constantly and we get the chance to switch technologies and discover the next/new tech.
Although we are working from home a lot now – we get together as teams regularly. It’s those impromptu chats in the office that can sometimes be invaluable on a project.
My advice to someone looking to work here. Be open to learning new stuff, have the drive to learn and don’t be afraid of taking your skills to the next level. Your input can be invaluable in moving both our products and your career forward.’
