About 7 months ago, Anthony James joined our company as a Technical Consultant after he obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Applied Computer Sciences at HoGent.
We went to see Anthony and talked about his journey so far, and what he likes most about his job.
Curious about his story? Then be sure to read on!
Hi Anthony! How did you come across Itineris in the first place?
Well, last year I was writing my Bachelor’s thesis about digital disruption in businesses. I had to interview a few companies, and one of them was Itineris. They were so kind to complete my survey. In a follow-up email, they let me know that they were really interested in the subject of my thesis and asked me if I was looking for a job. That’s how the ball got rolling.
What attracted you most to our company?
When talking to Catherine from the Talent Acquisition team, I immediately felt a good click. To me, Itineris was also the perfect size: not too big, to the point it gets impersonal, and not too small either. I wanted to get into a structured work environment, where you know more or less what is expected from you. On top of that, the Itineris software solution, UMAX, sparked my interest. I had never seen software specifically designed for utilities before, and I was very curious to learn more about it.
What would you say your day typically looks like?
As a Technical Consultant, my main task is to implement new functionalities in UMAX. The requirements of new functionalities are described in BLI’s (backlog items). So, I typically start my day with consulting open work items. If there are no open items, I can always fix bugs too. Besides that, I have regular check-ins with our Functional Analysts and Test Consultants. So, there’s always something to do at Itineris 😊.
