A day in the life of… Kevin Pinto, Senior Software Engineer
I wake up and get in the shower and then I check on my son Kruz. Ideally, he is awake and if so, I will make him his bottle.
Then I make a coffee for myself, which is an extremly important step in my day.
I get ready to leave for work, depending on the spectacular Hemel Hempsted traffic, I will get to work at different times each day.
At the beginning of the day we have a team catchup, this is where we discuss software changes/new requirements. We then check the web servers health, to ensure they are okay. Finally, we handle any and all errors that take place on the website.
I go through all of the new changes/requests by the junior devs, and get them ready to go live by the next day. Then I prioritise my to do list and work on required changes.
I will speak to the finance team to make sure everything is okay in the world of finance, and see if any changes to the site are required.
I will then schedule and prioritise training for TAB team members for any new releases, or changes in the tech world.
Food time, the best time?
Sometimes I will take a walk or play a game of pool at lunch with some of the great team here at TAB.
After lunch I research new features that will be required by TAB in the present and future. I will also use this time to see if there are any solutions in the tech world that can help our team further.
In the afternoon, we have our second team catch up. This is to ensure that no one in the team is stuck and to raise any questions.
I leave work and drive home.
Once i get home, I will either go out to the park if the weather is nice with my family, or I will clean the fish tank. After that, I will either watch Netflix or play PS5.
The fun then begins, as I try to get my son to sleep, once that finally happens. I then eat dinner. And if needed, finish any work tasks.
Go to sleep and then get ready to do it all over again tommorow.
How long have you worked at TAB?
I joined TAB in July 2020 to build up the tab software/website to automate all of TAB’s internal processes with Mark (technology director), I still remember speaking to Duncan (CEO and founder) and in my interview him saying “build me a website” and me replying “yes I can do that, it is what I am good at doing”.
I am an experienced software engineer with a postgraduate degree in computer Science with a demonstrated history of working in the computer software industry.
What does your role at TAB involve?
Making sure that the TAB website is stable and running smoothly at all times.
Introducing new tech releases and changes
Training TAB staff on how to use TAB platform
Mentoring junior devs
Understanding the business daily requirements and building up TAB Tech to easy out work loads for different departments
Researching new tech and development.
What’s the best thing about working at TAB?
Whenever I see any/all tab team members using the TAB platform I feel proud of myself and it makes me want to improve the TAB platform and take it to the next level. I do believe that tabhq.com is my baby that I need to nurture which will take us to the next level. That is the best thing for me about working with TAB. Some other great things about TAB is the delicious free food from chef, the seating/layout in the office and the motivated people around me.
