| Embedded Software Engineer

During my Electrical Engineering bachelor, I started working at Prodrive Technologies as a Software Engineer (everything is possible at Prodrive Technologies). After working on our own internally developed native iOS apps (Swift) for a while, I picked up full responsibility for these apps. Currently, I’m creating an automated build pipeline with one-click deployment. However, these are just side projects. My main activity is developing a fully automated test which is used to validate our own Zeus server platform (over 2000 Xeon cores in a single cabinet). Testing involves everything from inspecting the RAM configuration, validating internal voltage monitors to stress testing this beast! Because production, development and testing are done under the same roof, the collaboration is great. This allows us to quickly adapt to issues which arise in these different production phases.

In the afternoon, I sneak away for some lectures at the university and I try to be back for our (free) dinner. After dinner, I finish some more tasks, commit and push my code and go to the gym with Douwe.

The provided meals save a lot of time and together with the flexible working hours they currently allow me to combine a fulltime master with a part-time job. Even though I often arrive at 10:30, I still get taken seriously by my colleagues. Prodrive Technologies is the ultimate life-hack for students.
