I’m a Software Engineer and I joined the company almost three years ago.

How does Titian Software differ
To be fair, things are really well organised here and this is what I was looking for. When there are procedures and standards that are followed by everyone, the deadlines and goals are easier to reach. You rely on the fact that people around you are following the same procedures as you know so there is a consistency in how processes are performed. This facilitates quality control too which is quite important in software development.
How has Titian Software helped you in your career development?
In my career

What advice do you have for candidates applying for a software engineer role at Titian Software?
Let me tell you what I thought when I joined the company. When I've got to the end of the presentation as part of the interview, I felt like I could be a small piece of the big picture where scientists are doing their research in pursuit for drug discovery. And I was like: yes, this is what I was going to do. You feel good that you work on and you improve a system that is used after that by scientists and researchers. It's really nice!
What do you like to do outside of work?
I'm quite an active person outside of work. I’m part of a volleyball league and I try not to miss any week of practice. I like running and reading in my spare time and I also like to travel when I have the chance. Just go away and see the world.
What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your CV?
I don't think that you'll learn from my CV that I'm quite enthusiastic about what I'm doing. This will sound weird, but I like problems because I like to find solutions. When testers find a bug, I'm that kind of person who gets excited about investigating and solving it.
