A day in the life of an iZettle developer
27 november 2013
Hi, my name is Van. I’m an iZettle developer. I work with the iZettle Android app and the backend server. Here’s what a typical day at iZettle looks like for me!
7:00 I wake up from dreams of world peace and perfect code to big hugs from my daughter, Nova. From best to even better! We have some breakfast and look at some pictures taken from the day before.
7:30 Nova makes some imaginary cookies and sells them to me. Then we grab our gear and head out to school and work!
8:45 Usually there are a lot of people coming out of the elevator in the morning, and there are established techniques for streamlining the flow of people from lift to office. Alas, this morning the elevator was all mine!
9:30 In the Android team, we are ready to stretch our legs after our morning Git tricks and code tweaks. We discuss our issues at hand and what new tasks and improvements we’d like to work on soon. Everyone is almost awake by now!
9:45 After the stand up, I’m eager to tackle the outstanding bugs and features. My coding fingers usually bounce to the beats of “Sweet Nothing – Diplo + Grandtheft Remix” by Calvin Harris, ULTIMATE FOCUS!
11:30 At iZettle, we enjoy a full membership at the neighborhood gym. Many of my colleagues weave a workout into their daily routine.
12:45 Lunchtime is a happy time at iZettle! There is always a wonderful constellation of colleagues gathered in the kitchen.
17:00 On Friday afternoons, a huge amount of healthy (and unhealthy) snacks are arrayed in the kitchen. Some gather in groups, and some stop by alone, but almost everyone wander by to grab some chips, dip, veggies, or candy throughout the afternoon.
18:00 Six o'clock! Clear the tables! Time for the weekly ping-pong tournament. With awesome music via Sonos and so many great colleagues, it’s impossible not to have a great time!
Well, that pretty much sums it up. Intrigued? We’re always looking to bring more awesome people on board, so make sure to check out our open positions!
See you around!
