Philip H.

Lead Developer

Julian, why do you like to work for Webgears?
Webgears is in a highly competitive market and that presents constant challenges, which I like. Our team consists of many different nations and cultural backgrounds which makes working together fun and interesting.

What kind of tools and tech do you use?
We use JIRA and Trello for project management, Slack and Whereby for communication and video-calls. As a distributed SCRUM team we also use online tools like Parabol.co for our retrospective.

How does your daily business look like? How is your impact on Webgears?
As a Product Owner I work closely together with our development teams and I make sure that we are working on the most important topics first and deliver the best solutions for our users and other stakeholders.

Could you please explain the scrum process in a few lines? At Webgears we use SCRUM and Kanban for our development teams with JIRA as our management tool. Our teams meet every day in the morning for the daily standup and based on the sprint cycle we meet every 2 weeks for our retrospective and planning for the next sprint. As we are a distributed development team in different locations all our meetings are online and we use the best tools to make sure we have a good team communication and everything runs smoothly.

Diego, why do like to work for Webgears?
Webgears’ business model has a web first approach which in the current times makes a lot of sense and gives you a solid foundation to expand your horizons as a web developer.

What kind of tools and tech do you use?
For the frontend we use innovative technologies in their latest versions like NextJS, React, Webpack and a strong base of CI/CD pipelines hosted on Gitlab. For development we use one of the best IDEs in the market which WebStorm one of Jetbrains acclaimed development tools

How does your daily business look like? How is your impact on Webgears?
Everyday I look at my Jira board that’s managed by our project manager, then we start the day with a daily standup to then proceed to collaborate with my peers to get or give help when needed based on pair programming and a mentor system. As a web focused business, the role of the developers in Webgears is extremely important, you become the core of the company and the enabler of the vision and mission.

Philip, why do you like to work for Webgears?
Webgears is quite a young company (also from the employees) and has a lot of energy. There are great events and employees are really considered to be the company’s best value. And from a developers perspective it is also very interesting that we develop our own products, which means we are more or less independent from others. Our business evolves quite a lot and therefore we are in constant motion. We have a lot of new technical challenges and it never gets boring. Also we focus on developer’s needs, make sure we get proper trainings, good hardware and we try to use the latest tech stack wherever possible.

What kind of tools and tech do you use?
We use Symfony in the Backend and Next.js in the frontend. Communication happens synchronously via REST APIs or asynchronously via Queues (AWS SQS).
We have NodeJS tools that optimize and convert images using serverless functions (AWS Lambda) and python scripts for data processing.

Performance is one of our main goals, which is why we also have automated tests running on Gitlab CI to do performance tests, besides of course the regular Unit Tests and Functional Tests. To code we usually use Jetbrains IDE PHPStorm.

How does your daily business look like? How is your impact on Webgears?
Together with my team I tackle the stories, improvements or other tasks that we have planned for the sprint cycle, which is two weeks long. We review each other’s tasks and give feedback. As a full– stack developer I mostly work in the backend but I also tackle some frontend tasks from time to time. During sprint planning we discuss the proper technical solution and how we are tackling the different features. I worked already on various different features and projects and there are always more to come!

As team lead I also have to ensure that our developers get all the things they need (trainings, equipment, etc.) for their daily work.
