For this piece Embedded Software Engineer Matteo De Cicco shares his thoughts on life as part of Team Hanhaa.
“I joined Hanhaa as part of the embedded software engineering team in November of 2016, like many of the team I came through the online application process. Coming from 2 years’ experience in a start-up I really wanted to keep on challenging myself in another vibrant and fast-growing environment. This is exactly what I found at Hanhaa.
The company has created a great balance between well-experienced senior managers and young professionals at the beginning of their career. This mix of people creates a space in which we can continuously learn and improve our own skills, while also having the opportunity to have a real impact on the direction and success of the company.
At Hanhaa the company culture is among the most important things to myself and the rest of the team. Many of us partake in weekly sports activities after work and the rooftop bar atour Tobacco Dock office is a great place for us to socialise on Friday’s with beautiful views over London.
As part of each employee’s personal career development, we are also encouraged to take additional courses and qualifications that the company reimburses upon completion. Links that the company has made with organisations such as the IoTSF and partnership programs with Tesco also allow us access to knowledge and experience from outside sources.
Working for a company that is in the process of bringing a new product to market can get frantic at times and there is always plenty of work that needs to get done. However, seeing something that you have had a big hand in building enter into the market is a really rewarding experience. From my experience, if you are looking to work for a high-tech company in London, then Hanhaa is a great place to be.”
