How did you get into digital construction?
I was looking to move somewhere where I had the opportunity to learn and implement modern technologies. Digitalisation is new to the construction sector, so it has a lot of opportunities for innovation.
What advice would you give young people trying to get into this industry?
Specifically for my role, and from my experience here, I feel like I didn’t need much experience in the construction industry. I just needed my software engineering experience. Glider has an open approach and will teach you everything you need to know about the industry.
Describe your typical day?
Every morning starts with daily stand-ups, that allow the team to catch-up on each other and see if anybody needs help. I have a mentor that will help choose a suitable task and guide me through the problem and solution. The rest of the day I will spend trying to solve the problem, or going back to my mentor for help.
What challenges have you faced and how did you overcome these?
My previous job was quite easy and became mundane, it took me a while to realise I wanted more challenges during work. I like to keep my mind active and try to conquer fresh problems. After moving to Glider, I feel like I have made the right decision.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I go boxing or gym and Piano classes – new at this so nothing I am proud of playing publicly yet. I play games and watch tv when I am tired.
