Golang Job Details

The job

After getting your first cup of coffee, either at the office or at home, you start your computer and logon to the network. You see that one of the periodic unit tests that you wrote suddenly failed. You instantly jump on it and start troubleshooting to see what went wrong. Just after you committed the fix to Azure DevOps, you have the standup with the rest of your Squad to see verify the status of your stories and mention what you did to solve the sudden error.

Next to the standups, you have several sessions with people from other groups within ING to get the ideas and facilities clear to write an easy to use and portable API in the Golang language. You will use libraries from other teams and create your own to be used by other teams.

In the afternoon you planned to work on your user stories and make sure that you deliver your commitments in this sprint. You write, test and validate your code using industry standards and make sure your code adheres to internal and industry standards. You are not shy in creating new standards internally if needed and document what you wrote in a clear and readable fashion.

Of course, since you work at a large financial institute, you make sure your code is safe, and you wrote tests to make sure it is and remains compliant with banking requirements.

In the spare moments when writing software, you consider what the topic for your next demo would be and how to incorporate feedback from the last demo you gave.

If you recognize yourself in such a potential day, then we are looking for you!
