Thank you for the occasion! I was originally born and raised in the north of Iran. I have a bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering and I’m in Switzerland since 2017.
Since I moved to Switzerland, I was actively looking for a job. During that time, a friend of mine recommended me to join the Powercoders Academy. That’s how I got there.
Yes, of course! I bought my first Swiss sim SIM card from Swisscom, so I was a client since the beginning. Well, I got to know Swisscom mainly through advertisements and by using its products and services.
After companies and participants got to know one another at a gathering, each had to make a list of their favorite participants or companies. Swisscom was on my list as the company I want to work for and apparently, I was also one of the participants that Swisscom chose to interview. So, when I got the opportunity, I tried my best to convince the interviewers. It was important for me to get to Swisscom, obviously because it’s one of the big and leading IT companies in Switzerland. But also because I knew I will have many opportunities to learn, grow and improve my skills.
We are now developing new features on Swisscom Direct Carrier Billing (payments). The features are blocking Carrier Billing for small and medium enterprise customers to avoid misuse, also adding the capability of checking the anonymous billing profile for eligibility (Amazon feature).
The challenges which I’m looking forward to are the clean-up and refactoring of big data APIs, and Amazon on-boarding and testing. I’m sure I will learn a lot being involved in these projects and I’m grateful for the opportunity which was given to me.
