A Day in the Life of a Software Engineer at C2 Software
Nine Twenty Technology spent some time with Jamie MacDonald, a Senior Software Engineer at C2 Software, to find out about his career journey so far…
Everyone meet Jamie!
Tell us about how you found C2 Software and why you joined?
I started with C2 about 4 years ago and it was actually Nine Twenty who approached me about the job when I was working for a similar company. At the time there was a vacancy for a Senior Software Engineer and I was working for bespoke software company. I knew of C2 before I was approached but once I learned more about the company it seemed like a good fit.
What was your working and educational background before C2 Software?
Well I worked in a few jobs after I left school before I decided to go to university where I studied European Politics. After that I did a diploma at St Andrews University where I received a distinction in IT. After that, I worked as an IT Officer for a few public sector organisations as part of Government projects with St Andrews University and Dundee University. From there I went onto become a Software Engineer.
What can you tell us about your role as a Senior Software Engineer at C2?
What do you like the most about C2 as an employer?
It is definitely a nice environment in which to work; at the moment we have one extended software team which works well. Everyone has their own day to day responsibilities but we all have the same shared goal which helps us get the work done. The role is really varied and because each customer is different and our solutions are often bespoke in nature, I am able to use different techniques in work. Also there is no micromanagement here which is important to me; I get good freedom to write my own code. Overall, C2 is definitely a place I would recommend to tech professionals looking for a new career opportunity on the East coast.
