"Creative freedom is one of the key reasons why working at Hitachi Vantara is very rewarding"

My Role

I work as a Backend Engineer as part of the  Lumada DataOps Suite, my main responsibilities are:

  • Design and implement software solutions that bring to life the requirements asked by Product Design and Product Management.
  • Maintain existing software is working up to par by troubleshooting problems and brainstorming future improvements.
  • Upgrade our solutions to comply with company and industry standards.
  • As part of the Agile initiative, I also take part in our agile methodology meetings and take the role of Scrum Master in my development team.

At Hitachi Vantara, the development teams are self-empowered, which means that we, as a team, have full control over the solutions we develop. This creative freedom is one of the key reasons why working at Hitachi Vantara is very rewarding.

A day in my life 

A day in my life usually begins by keeping up with email and slack, so to ensure nothing urgent is awaiting my input followed by checking the nightly runs, just to check if we didn’t break anything the previous day.

After all the checking is done, I usually have the rest of the morning for focused work, be it standalone coding or pair programming.

As we are a full remote team, after lunch we gather on MS Teams to goof around a bit and do the daily sync. If someone needs to discuss some solution or our Product Owner has some new stories coming up, we spend some time going through those items afterwards.

Because we have many stakeholders and other teams in the US, we usually have some meetings until the end of the afternoon, if not we do some more coding.
