I’ve been with Interworks for almost a year now. It was an interesting ride, with its ups and downs, and people who were usually pleasant to work with (apart from some specific exceptions) and achieve results. I had a good time thanks to most of the people I was working with, but it’s time to end.
Tomorrow, Wednesday is my last day in Interworks. Reflecting on my work there, apart from my usual assignments I’ve had the chance to lead the adoption of (some) software engineering methodologies, refactor a lot of implementations and code, plus create 1-2 utilities that helped with the everyday workflow.
Still, while there was work to do, it wasn’t what I’d have in mind for a long term position. What I love doing is the design and implementation of large scale applications; solving the (very) difficult problems that scaling-out carries with it; designing robust multitiered systems, that sort of thing.
With that in mind I’ve decided to give my 2 weeks notice and pursue something which will allow me to work on large scale application design and engineering. And as luck would have it, on March 1st, I’ll be working with Eirtight.
Eirtight is a well known and well established company which boasts an impressive client list and a series of projects that are exactly what I was looking for. Large and complex but also organised and scalable. I’m very excited to work with Eirtight and believe that I have to gain a lot of insight on engineering large applications.
In closing, I would like to give my thanks to Interworks for having me on their team and entrusting me with some of their most critical operations (albeit late) and I wish them success in their goals. They are one of the few companies in Thessaloniki in that domain and of that size and we can certainly use more.
