Senior Software Engineer at Hitachi Data Systems
I was hired by Hitachi Data Systems in Bracknell (formerly BlueArc) in May 2013 after answering some questions sent to me in a questionnaire by the recruiter and taking part in the person to person interview in the office. I had to fly to the UK especially to take part in that interview. It was conducted by three different directors in sequence. I would say quite stressful situation, but they pleasant and haven't put much pressure over me during the whole process.
After I joined the company I become part of the new team, especially created to conduct a project at the semi-application level of their flagship product, related to the feature that was going to affect the whole system. This made the product multi-tenant capable. When we finished that project the whole team jumped into development of bricks for new product, that should be revealed in late 2015 or early 2016.
I was writing the code in C++ that goes into the product and some test scripts in Ruby that runs on the company's automated test system. Additionally, I was conducting small feasibility studies of the changes we want to implement to achieve implementing bits and pieces of larger features; these are related to internal gears of the complex product.
