We present André Horn, Software developer, R&D
In today´s interview of our new series, ERWEKA presents itself, we would like to introduce our colleague Mr. André Horn.
To learn more about his everyday working life at ERWEKA and his person, we have asked Mr. Horn a few questions.
Mr. Horn, you have started to work for ERWEKA in June 2019.
How did you settle in?
The nice colleagues and the pleasant working atmosphere made it easy for me to settle in well.
What´s your profession at ERWEKA?
I am a software developer in the research and development department.
What´s your job about?
As a Devops Engineer I am responsible for process automation. I practically help the programmers to make life easier by writing scripts, as these steps would otherwise have to be done manually. In addition, I implement tools that monitor the quality assurance of the written code to correct errors early if necessary.
What do you like most about your job?
The technology simply excites me. It is exciting for me to come in contact with new things again and again.
Why did you choose ERWEKA as your new employer?
Before I joined ERWEKA, I worked as support for developers. However, I was interested in the next step to dive deeper into the development. This is exactly what ERWEKA enables me to do, which is why I decided to work here.
What´s your background? What have you been doing before you have started to work at ERWEKA?
I started with an apprenticeship as an information technology assistant. Then I did my bachelor's degree in information system technology and then before I came to ERWEKA, I worked as an application engineer in distribution.
What do you appreciate most about ERWEKA?
What I appreciate about ERWEKA are the short communication channels, which in turn bring the short decision-making channels.
I also like the multiculturalism in the company and my international team as well as the modern open office concept.
What do you like to do in your leisure time?
I am doing lots of sports, play basketball or go longboarding. Furthermore, I like to cook.
Three words, which describe yourself?
Humorous. Disciplined. Helpful.
Mr. Horn, thanks for the friendly interview and I wish you further success for the future at ERWEKA.
