ZIVVER is here to help people communicate securely hassle-free. It's in our DNA to do simple but smart and always secure. Sounds natural to you? Read on!
Our platform is a SaaS application written in Scala that serves our Angular Typescript web application and C# Microsoft Office plugin (yes, we like strong static typing). Your job is to develop new applications and features using .NET.
As ZIVVER is scaling up fast, your developing skills will not only be pointing towards our code but also towards your colleagues.
#raisethebar is your mantra
Not all stupid ideas end up being great, but every great solution starts with being stupid
Hell No, Status Quo
A day at HQ
It's 8:30 on a Wednesday when you come into the office. A bit earlier than usual but it's the day after Release Tuesday so you want to make sure you're all caught up on the changes before your usual day is about to start.
At 9.30 it's time for the End-User Plugin Team daily stand up. Besides the release, people briefly sum up their completed tasks from yesterday, the items they're stuck on or need some help with and the planned actions for today. 10 minutes later you're up to speed about everything at ZIVVER necessary for me to make this an awesome and productive day.
With ZIVVER growing and growing, it's extremely important to rethink past approaches to previous issues. Today you're starting to refactor some of the core of our main Outlook Plugin project. We're doing this by first writing Selenium-based automated UI tests and then refactoring the code to be more unit testable, easier to maintain, and more fun to code in.
Half way through the day you're touching base with Jeremy. You've run into a WPF animation issue in the Selenium tests and you need his advice to be able to continue. The goal is to have at least ZIVVER's new dialog UI automation tests finished by this afternoon so you need to get a move on.
It's getting close to 17.30 and your action list for today is back to zero again. Perfect timing as our monthly Know thy Code talk is about to start. Today, Pablo is giving a talk on the latest encryption technology and how ZIVVER uses it. So laptop closed and off to the Humming Bar!
