Anuj joined Springworks in May 2021, as a Software Engineering Intern as a part of the Trivia team. He belongs to the Taj city of our country, Agra. He loves to listen to music and play online games.
Anuj has always had a fondness towards technology since childhood and thus decided to pursue this passion full-time as a software engineer. He is a very creative person who is always on the lookout for finding out new ways to do things and how he can improve on the existing ones!
Let’s take a look at how his day as a Software Engineering Intern goes by!
What made you choose a career in Tech?
Springworks is the first organization that I have been a part of after my undergraduate degree. Since my school days, I have always had the curiosity to understand how technology works and what are the different aspects of it. This made me choose Computer Science as my major in under-graduation. My interest in computer science is what led me to become who I am today.
What is your favorite thing about your work?
There are so many things I can say here, but something that stands out for me is working with my team. The way we work together and help each other out is my favorite part. Every day just working together on developing and building better things is what I enjoy the most.
Collectively being on the lookout for effectively implementing tasks is what helps us to work as a great team. Another favorite thing would be the regular team lunches that we have, where we do not talk about work and just focus on team-building and playing interesting games!
Walk us through a day in the life of Anuj!
- I start my day early in the morning at around 9:00 am everyday
- Prepare my work for the daily stand-up call at 11:00 am
- We tend to discuss all the tasks that need to be done
- After the stand-up, I start working again till 2:00 pm
- This is where I take a one hour break
- Then restart my work from 3:00 pm and go on till 6:00 pm
- After this, I go to the gym sometimes or maybe take a walk around
- Meet up with some friends, come back and wrap up any pending work!
What is the best thing about being a part of Springworks?
The best thing about Springworks hands down would be async communication! Due to this, the dependency on needing someone to aid my daily task is significantly reduced and I can focus more on my work and deliver effective results.
Not being tied up in long-duration calls not only helps me to focus more but also promotes individuality in my work which helps me perform better. Another thing would be the 4-day work week! It gives me a long weekend that helps me in spending more time with my family-friends and also do things that I like more often!
What keeps you motivated at work?
Just being able to learn something new every single day is what keeps me motivated. I get to work on a different aspect of a technology or a completely new technology which is challenging yet keeps me motivated.
Any advice to your fellow developer or people who would like to pursue this career?
The only advice I would give to people who are looking to choose a career in the tech industry is to always keep an open mind to learning new things since this field sees hundreds of new developments every single day. If you are adaptive enough to learn about these new developments, this will eventually help you to become the best version of yourself!
