My day at NT-ware
My day at NT-ware
My name is Axel Behrens, I’m a software developer at heart and have been working for NT-ware for 13 years, now as a QA kernel developer. Testing, automating tests, interacting with other QA colleagues or development—my job is varied.
My name is Axel Behrens, I’m a software developer and have been working for NT-ware for 13 years, now as a QA kernel developer. Monday through Wednesday I am in the office, the rest of the time plus one week a month I work from home—almost 200 km away from Bad Iburg. This ensures great quality of life for me—and since we can hold meetings, coordination discussions etc. via video conference, I am always a part of things.
The early bird catches the worm—I am a morning person. This is very helpful, because I’m the father of 4 daughters, all of whom have to catch the school bus just after 7 am … When I joined NT-ware, it was a very small company that offered me enormous freedom, plus a secure job. That still applies today!
My then team leader and I completely restructured the QA department at NT-ware years ago. These days its size is quite considerable—and it continues to grow... My day consists of testing, automating, interacting with colleagues (in person or via Skype), talking about errors that have occurred or behavior patterns of a new feature ... My job is varied—and I still enjoy it today!
We switched to agile approaches some time ago—therefore software developers and QA staff are now on the Sprint team together. The advantage of this is that we can have a much earlier idea of possible quality tests and so pass suggestions along to development. The feedback loops have become shorter, the dialog more intensive, and we are all even more satisfied!
My favorite place in the company is definitely our chillout room with its table soccer! After lunch we often get together for a game. Of course, new talent is always welcome—both on the QA team and for table soccer! By the way: if we’re looking to strengthen the QA team, you’ll find me at the table when it’s decision time. So, see you soon, maybe?
