Job Description

WHAT YOUR DAY COULD LOOK LIKE

Grab a coffee and join your team stand-up. Fill the team in on your progress from yesterday and what you’re going to tackle today. Open your favourite IDE (Android Studio, right?) and start your next task. Later, pepper the product team with questions, comments, and scenarios on some upcoming specs. Head over to the designers desk and suggest a behaviour change. Lunch time! Catch the latest episode of John Oliver with the team or take a meditative stroll down by the river (watch out of for the roving gangs of geese). Back at your desk, add a few of your favourite songs to the Foko playlist on Spotify and hopefully you’ll hear it over the office speakers that afternoon. Now, back to testing, coding and repeating. It’s 3pm which means it’s time to plank! Engage that core! Join the team leads for a quick bug triage to get priorities aligned for the next release. Finish off what you were working on and prepare for what’s coming up tomorrow.

Crack a beer and update your work-log in JIRA.
