What made you apply for a position at Sectra?
I first encountered Sectra at a career fair held at the university where I studied, and I received a very positive first impression. I was impressed by the kindness and commitment the people I met there showed. I was also very interested in Sectra’s products because a lot of the work I had done during my final years as a student and for my master’s thesis was related to image analysis, and in particular, medical image analysis. Additionally, Sectra felt like a very good workplace for me as someone who had just graduated, and that it would provide me with the opportunity to learn from experienced colleagues and grow in my role as a developer.
How long have you been working at Sectra?
I have been working at Sectra since August 2019. I did not have a lot of experience of software development, but the Sectra mindset “Hire for attitude and ability – train for skill” spoke to me. I have been given a lot of freedom in terms of developing the skills that are required of me, both with regard to identifying areas to develop within, but also how I want to develop. Additionally, my team has been great at getting me up to speed by introducing me to different parts of the products, concepts, tools, etc.
