Insider story tab image-

At IR, we love hearing our employees’ voices. They give you the best insight we can get about us and what we do. Let’s hear what Thuan says about IR and his experience!

Tell us about yourself and how long you’ve been in your role

My name is Thuan and I am a graduate software engineer at IR.I’ve been in my current role since January 2014 but back in 2012/2013, I completed my university internship here at IR.

Why did you choose to join the IR Graduate Program and how did you secure a place?

I had such a nice experience during my internship I decided to pursue a position at IR. I was lucky enough to be offered a place on the graduate program right after I gained my degree, as a result of my work during my undergraduate placement year.

Talk us through a ‘day in the life’ of Thuan Ngo.

I love the start of a day at IR; gathering with my team mates at our lounge area and having brekkie over a chat. Then we get to business! .On a day-to-day basis my role involves learning our product suite through team rotations and contributing fully to team commitments. First thing in the morning, I check the progress of my team project and then throughout the day I work closely with my team mates; have meetings and whiteboard updates as well as casual discussions about the projects.
I am also volunteering on a top secret project at the IR Graduate Program Committee which is aiming to open up our doors to brand new interns and graduates.

What have been the favorite parts and the highlights of your job so far?

What I enjoy most is the freedom and flexibility of my work. The agile environment at IR makes it really easy and convenient to collaborate, communicate and share knowledge! So every day I can learn a little more from the experience of others, as well as sharing my own ideas without the hassle of formality. I also love having the chance to work on innovative projects; they are definitely more challenging but the joy of achieving something difficult is priceless.

The highlight of my career so far would probably be being part of the team that worked on an innovative project for Visual Studio 2013 last July. I was working on every aspect of this project from building the system to migrating data, as well as ensuring a seamless transition to the new system for the whole department. It was hard work, but I learned a lot and the results were great! Definitely worth it! I was even nominated and selected “Employee of the Month” in the month following.

What advice would you give someone looking to start their career in software engineering?

Be passionate and love what you do. Technical skills are important but you can always learn and improve during your career. Go to career events and pay attention to the business. These events provide great opportunities to learn more about the companies. Your aim should not be finding a company to work for; it should be finding THE COMPANY that fits your skill set and values so you can feel the joy of working and learning.
