Clark Joseph: Software Engineer Trainee

​​How are you finding working at Scrumconnect Ltd and its culture?

So far my work experience at Scrumconnect Ltd has been a range of different dynamics and learning opportunities which I’ve been able to work towards with relish. The concept of teams being as a whole in meetings has provided me enough reassurance that they’re filled with wholehearted staff willing to assist in any matters I have.

Any feedback on the work you are involved in?

As a trainee software developer, I’ve been tasked with small issues, whether that would be reading provided documentation or presenting my understanding of small areas of said documentation or software. My team at Scrumconnect Ltd don’t fail to give compassionate understanding for areas of progression and forward my understanding with care. 

Field that you may want to prosper in?

Become a full-time software developer being able to handle issues with ease and maintain overall consistency and be a part of deep learning projects in the future.

Future opportunities – what are you looking for from this opportunity?

Being able to adapt to how teams within Scrumconnect Ltd work within large distributed teams and becoming a part of that workflow. Learning to understand and compensate for failures within projects as well as revolving my work around the acceptance of failures.
