Please Tell Us a Bit About Yourself
From Johannesburg to Munich, I came here to follow my dream of becoming a software developer. I used to be (and still am, really) addicted to computers, whether it was gaming, curiosity on several topics in the computer world or just really doing pretty much anything, and knew that this field was what I wanted to continue pursuing. As a future student at the TUM I wanted to gain a bit of insight and experience in the atmosphere, and I heard that a software tester/QA was a good start, especially since I would like to create things with my knowledge in the future. I worked 2 months as a QA and wanted to spend more time on this, especially since I have some extra time at the moment, and sought out for a job that offers me to work more hours and also have a bit more freedom as to how I would go about doing so. And here I am.
How did you found out about MVST?
While on the lookout for this new QA idea of mine, I spent a lot of time searching for a place I felt was right and decided I didn’t want to settle for something that would not let me show the most of my abilities. That’s when I stumbled upon MVST. I did my fair share of research behind it and it looked like the idea I had in mind. I liked the idea of a fun and communicative team, and applied as soon I possibly could.
What's something that you're passionate about?
I’ve always been pretty passionate about computers, gaming, coding, etc., but I wouldn’t say that’s the only thing that really describes me. I generally like science and random fun facts (big fan of those videos on YouTube), but on the other hand, I also really like music, more specifically guitar. And to counter that amount of time I spent sitting at a computer, I also got pretty big into gymming and generally doing some sort of exercise (and when I saw that as one of the benefits to work here, I was immediately sold).
If you could work from anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
This is tough to answer. I can’t say I’ve travelled too much and really got to experience more than 3 cultures, and so to answer this I’d say: As many places as possible. I want to get a taste of everywhere before I really settle on one single choice. So if I could, I’d work some time somewhere in Asia (especially South Korea and Japan), then in the Americas, some more around Europe, and finally I wouldn’t mind giving different cities in my home country a try too.
