Michał Kurek

Senior Software Developer

I am a Senior Software Developer, as well as a Team Leader and Scrum Master. I have been in EG since 2016 where I started as a Junior Developer in my first full-time job. It was a period of intense learning and I was exposed to a lot of new technologies. I started to learn the business side, which allowed me to understand what the expectations were from customers. In 2018 I was promoted to Regular Developer which meant more independence and responsibility for the tasks given to me. I became Team Leader later and there were a lot of new people in the team, so I was responsible for their introductions and learning which gave me the opportunity to grow in a managerial direction. As part of NGA's transformation into EG I took on the role of Scrum Master, which is very demanding, but I still really like it. The role requires a lot of commitment and has taught me how to analyze in depth and collaborate even better with other team members.

I enjoy my job because my position gives me the opportunity to solve programming problems. I like exploring, learning new things which my role in the organization allows me to do. The best part of my job is when our software goes into production and I know that our customers can use it. It means we have achieved our goal and we are helping someone to function better.

I have chosen to work in EG due to great atmosphere, the approach to the employees, support from the Manager at a daily basis and their ability to build good relationships. I value the open-minded people, who are willing to help and the constant desire to improve. I was surprised at the very beginning how casual the atmosphere is in EG and I really appreciate direct and open communication with people at every level. It very much feels like we're on equal terms and can discuss anything.

In terms of my development since I've joined EG, I've been working successfully on improving my professional skills, but I've also gained the ability to efficiently share my thoughts with other people and lead them in a small team. My senior colleagues helped me to learn how to approach more difficult issues and see the value in processes and tasks we're working on.

In terms of my contribution to EG, I like to think that I am a good problem solver, and my willingness to help, based on my knowledge and experience, allows my colleagues to continually work as efficiently as possible.

Team Manager

I am a Team Manager in EG Digital Welfare and my responsibilities include keeping my employees happy and content. Apart from that, I recruit people to our ever-growing department and come up with innovative ways of improving internal procedures. My goal for this year is to create a functioning test strategy for my Business Unit, a part of this is to organize ISTQB certification courses for our testers.

I think we form a team that makes it fun to work together. The people I work with on daily basis have created a wonderful atmosphere in our department which also benefits in other areas of the company. If we have a free moment, there is nothing more pleasant than taking a cup of coffee out on terrace in the heart of Warsaw.

I can guarantee from my own experiences that you can count on a great career path in EG. I was hired as a Tester, and shortly thereafter I was given the opportunity to build the team in Poland from scratch. Having recruited most of my team members, seeing them work together, learning and inspiring each other, gives me a huge satisfaction. I would say that it's my greatest work-related experience. I really enjoy my job and feel like I have found my place professionally.

I think it's also worth to mention how EG stands out as a place to work. Scandinavian work culture differs from my previous experience. It is less formal (no dress code, no titles 'Sir' or 'Madam'), equal opportunities and flexible working hours. There is a real focus on employee wellbeing with a lot of social events to bring people together. Management tries to give staff members a real voice and encourage input at every level. I value the atmosphere and the fact that the company really takes good care of their employees. Moreover we have a great management at both business unit and company level. I can always count on the people above me, not only my direct manager who I work with on daily basis, but also senior management. EG also surprised me on how fast effort is rewarded.

QA Tester

My daily life and responsibilities at EG have greatly evolved during the last three years. I started as a Tester, now I am in charge of Test Manager duties and also work as a Scrum Master within my team. My day starts with a daily meeting and saying hello to my EG friends. In the morning we talk about the latest news, sports, and other common topics. It's great to have such a chit chat before starting work. I remember when I joined EG I spent the first three weeks in Denmark as part of the onboarding. When I came back to the polish office, I immediately felt that I had a common language with the rest of the team members. It was great and made me feel more confident.

I know that I can always count on my team members and they are willing to help me, which of course works both ways. I care a lot about good relations not only inside my team but also with all colleagues across other departments. Whenever I feel like having a talk with someone in the office, I'm trying to grab a coffee with them.

Each day at EG is slightly different, one day is filled with project meetings and in the next day I can, for example, fully dedicate myself to testing.

EG has a great atmosphere inside the distributed teams and in our Polish location. It is the possibilities to learn new tools and being part of new projects for EG that makes it fun for me to come to work every day.

My greatest work-related experience was the possibility to start my adventure within test automation. It was great I could use Java programming which I learned at the University. I am happy that I, even though I been in EG for three years, still can improve my skills and learn something new every day.

I really appreciate the EG working culture, my fantastic colleagues and the great office. It feels like we are one big family. What makes EG different as a workplace is the extensive focus on employee satisfaction, it's the first place where I have experienced such approach. There is always time and space for a talk with my manager who priorities my satisfaction. What I also appreciate is the flexibility and the work-life balance.

Lead Software Developer

I joined EG as a Senior .NET Developer in September 2019. I started as one of two Senior Developers in a newly created team. Now two years later my team is working on one of the biggest and most important products for EG Digital Welfare department. We successfully introduced many new features to the product and made it much more reliable. I think that my soft skills and feeling of responsibility improved greatly during that period. I'm happy that the management noticed and nominated me to be .NET Lead Developer and responsible for sharing knowledge within the whole .NET division. Everyday I'm trying to introduce and promote best practices and modern architecture approaches to our products.

What motivates me in my daily work in EG is that our products are used by Danish citizens for years. It's extremely motivating that what you code is going to be used by millions of users. What I value most at EG is that our products serve people and make their life easier, it genuinely drives me. Our products are in the process of modernization architecture and frameworks. It's challenging to modernize the application and keep it running on production. For me it's great fun to face such a challenging task.

What I value in my work at EG is that our Danish colleagues and management are open minded and happy about our recommendations. We introduced new event driven architecture in product heavily used all around Denmark. New architecture proven to be much more reliable and easier to extend with for example out of box monitoring solution. It proves that our team can introduce quite big changes for major products and that management trust our skills and commitment.

Working at EG is such a nice experience, our office location in Warsaw is in the city center. It makes commuting to the office very easy and equal for all employees. EG has implemented a flexible work from home model about remote work, to ensure healthy work-life balance. In dialogue with your manger you discuss the best setup for you and your team.

When I've joint EG I was pleasantly surprised how great the atmosphere is among the employees. It's obvious that people like to work here, and EG cares about us not only as employees but also as people. We have many recurring company events like Friday Bars, EG Brunch and Family day, where we meet and talk to colleagues from different departments.
