So, tell us about a day in the life …
The typical workday is quite varied from day-to-day in terms of what tasks I could be completing, but each day follows a similar structure.
I start by checking in with my team to understand what everyone is working on and how it fits towards the larger vision we have for each of project. If they need any support, I’ll spend some time on that. It’s mainly pair programming, code reviews, mapping out solutions/new features, career progression discussions, etc.
The rest of my time is spent focused on leading the team on our underlying platform for a large number of ‘currently in development’ assets. This has lately involved road mapping an internal Python library, discussing our cloud deployment strategy with solution architects, devops standardisation across the team and development for some new features.
Towards the end of the day, I check in on how the team went throughout the day and see if anything is a roadblock. I discuss where the platform/project is at on a larger scale than just their work, and where we need to go as a team in the next couple days or week. This allows them to provide their inputs and perspective and helps shape the end vision into a tool they’re happy working on and in.
Unwinding at home starts with a shower. Working from home, I like to find a way to separate going to and coming ‘home‘ from work. So I bookmark the start and end of my day with a shower.
Depending on the day, the rest of my evening could be spent working on personal projects, reading books or out to dinner or events with friends.
