Education: B.Comm, UCD
Why did you choose Pilz?
I previously worked as an IT Consultant so Pilz offered the chance to get back into ‘real’ development. I also wanted to relocate to Cork and Pilz offered the perfect career opportunity.
What do you like best about your role?
I like the products we work on … I previously worked in the Telecomms industry; now my role with Pilz involves hardware and software, more tangible products, which is a very interesting change.
What do you do on a typical day?
A typical day depends on what stage of the project we are at. At the moment we are in System Test so I am checking/fixing nightly builds and test runs; defect fixing; involved in quality reviews; and planning for the next project’s Analysis phase.
How long have you been here and what have you accomplished?
I’ve been with Pilz 5 years and have worked on 4 products as Technical Team Lead. All products have been released on time with high quality.
What are your interests outside of work?
I play soccer and tag rugby which have been supported by our active Pilz Sports and Social Club. I also enjoy photography, swimming and reading when I get a chance.
