Tell us about your role at TecStub
I have worked as a Mobile app developer at Tecstub for the past four years. My role entails developing, testing, and building advanced applications for the iOS platform. Since app development is a continuous process that doesn’t end even when the app is published, I continuously work towards improving the application’s performance. I also work with cross-functional teams defining, designing, and shipping new features. I am always looking for opportunities to learn new technologies and upskill my technical knowledge, and at Tecstub, I get to do it all. I have felt the freedom to experiment and find plausible solutions is one of the things that makes me enjoy my work.
What does a typical workday look like?
I like to indulge in some outdoor activities as I often have to spend my day sitting for hours. So, I start my day at 6 am with a brisk morning walk, followed by a quick workout and cycling for an hour. After my fitness routine, I read the newspaper and have breakfast with my family.
Once I reach the office, I start by checking my emails and preparing my plan for the day. Then, I log into Jira to review my assigned tasks and issues I might need to discuss in the daily standup meeting. At 10 am, I connect with my team, and we discuss the ongoing project progress and any roadblock that might hinder the work progress. In case of issues, we as a team try to devise an apt solution. At Tecstub, our work methodologies ensure transparency and open communication within teams. As a result, it makes the work progress smoothly. I enjoy the new challenges at work that help me explore the vast landscape of app development.
At 1 pm, I have lunch with my colleagues, and after that, we play fun games to beat the post-lunch blues. At 2.30 pm, we have our backlog refinement meeting, where we discuss any task-related queries and create the plan for subsequent development modules. Whenever I get time, I brush up on my knowledge in my field of work by going through blogs about iOS development.
Before I wrap my work for the day, I check the work progress and make notes for the next day. Then, finally, I head home at 7 pm. Once I reach home, I watch movies or series or spend time with my friends and family.
