flexlog is now a training company
The software development required for our products is very specific and very complex. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find software developers who have the necessary knowledge. Despite the proximity to KIT, our current development needs cannot be met exclusively with graduates. For this reason, flexlog GmbH has decided to train its own offspring.
Our first trainee has been with us since October 1, 2018. We asked him a few questions:
Please introduce yourself briefly: Who are you and what defines you?
I am determined, persevering, open-minded, open to new things and technically savvy.
Why did you decide to train as a mathematical-technical software developer at flexlog?
I was interviewing for a working student position at flexlog. In the course of this conversation, the idea for training as a MATSE quickly arose. I was particularly impressed by the flat hierarchies at flexlog, where people are happy to help. In addition, the software teams are state-of-the-art and use the necessary tools to facilitate software development.
What's your first impression of flexlog?
flexlog is a young, open-minded team that exudes a healthy mix of professionalism and looseness. Although the company already employs over 25 people, it has a pleasant working environment with a start-up character.
What are your expectations of your apprenticeship at flexlog?
From my apprenticeship I expect all the important skills to become a fully-fledged software developer. I want to test my newly acquired skills with as much practical work as possible and a wide variety of challenges. For this I hope to get help and support from my colleagues wherever I need it. At the same time, however, I would also like to have the opportunity to work independently and on my own responsibility.
What are you looking forward to the most?
Most of all, I look forward to working in a professional development team where I can see the results of the software projects directly. The nice thing about an apprenticeship is that I can, for example, see directly how the customer's warehouse is set up. I'm not just working on a hypothetical project with little realism. That makes the work much more tangible.
