Develop new features and resolve bugs using C#, taking available work from a list that is shared by the whole team and planned out collectively every two weeks Contribute to daily stand-up meetings by summarising work done the previous work day and plans for the rest of the day
On A typical day I will liaise with members of the team to scope out solutions for our software systems. I will also implement solutions using vs code. This includes test driven development to work towards an acceptable solution. I will then work with the QA team to assess the solution and the Platform Team to deploy solutions.
We have the morning to work on internal tickets raised by internal employees and then the afternoon would be used to work on our individual projects. 3 meetings are held in the week, Monday - meeting for what we have planned, Wednesday - what we have done so far, Friday - weekly roundup. Project work can rage to database management, improving the new user script and working on remote ways to deploy application to user pcs
My role as a BDR means I am responsible for the very beginning of the sales cycle. This involves networking and prospecting key stakeholders within our target market with the aim of generating quality meetings which will ultimately result in pipeline and genuine revenue for the business.
1) Accounts Receivable - Closing daily orders, invoicing customers and chasing payments through credit control methods; 2) Accounts Payable - Managing the AP mailbox and processing vendor invoices in preparation for our payment runs; 3) Bank - I was responsible for the application of vendor and customer payments to ensure our bank statement was kept up to date and also reconciled accounts at the end of month; and 4) Project work and other ad-hoc admin tasks.
As a whole, I have three buckets of responsibility: 1. Running customer deployments of our product. (Like the rest of my team, but fewer orders) 2. Leading our internal ticketing system. This includes taking on miscellaneous internal and customer requests myself, or allocating them to an appropriate resource. 3. Owning and pushing forward multiple 'Business Analyst' type projects, to improve our internal systems. The scope of these projects generally span multiple departments.
Work in the data science team creating models to help give the company insights. Every day starts with standup, a meeting where every one in the team talks about what we have been working on recently. Most of my day is spent working on the model (programming) however I do have a couple of meetings spread through out the week such as catch-ups with my manager about the work I am doing and catchups with my team where we can discuss and give each other insights on our work.

Consists of a daily standup in which we report the work we did the previous day, and then what is planned for today. Working to investigate customer issues, fix bugs as well as investigate, refine tickets for new project features. I also worked with colleagues to review code, suggest changes and completed development work for new features. Throughout the day there'd be a number of meetings, usually on refining story tickets or to update on any important customer issues.
I was responsible for coordinating the deployment of our products to customers after purchasing. I completed 32 customer-based projects and coordinated around 3 internal projects. I was also part of the QMS team, we conducted internal audits and attended external audits, to remain certified with ISO 9001. Daily tasks included chairing customer kick-off calls, emailing out actions, answering customer queries.
The Sales Operations team is the pivotal role between the Sales department and the wider business. The team continuously drives the sales system and improves processes, the quality of the data, and creates reports for Senior Management. You will be proactively monitoring data quality, which is used to make strategic and operational business decisions. Day-to-day activity mainly involves work on Salesforce.
My role has involved managing and supporting projects for a variety of different small-medium sized company's for the whole duration/ lifecycle. During these projects I have had to arrange calls, resolve any issues the customer has, coordinate these with the sales and technical teams, follow-up any actions after calls with customers and ensure they are completed in time for the next meeting. Overall I have been the main point of contact for customer projects. I have also carried out a few administrative tasks alongside my main role as a Customer Success Coordinator, the main one including contribution towards our ISO 9001 certification.
It was very enjoyable. I met so many special people, who I know for a fact I will keep in touch with and I got to step out of my comfort zone and learn and develop new skills. The people definitely made the experience for me. There was a great work/life balance where I was able to socialise during lunch and after work. I was also given the responsibility I don't think I would be given anywhere else.
I loved my placement year and gained so much in a professional capacity as well as personal. I took on a number of tasks and headed up a number of projects which I was given total autonomy over and yet provided the support when I needed it. The best thing about my year was the people I got to meet and work with, it was a small team but that gave me the opportunity to make a big impact.
I enjoyed the placement quite a lot, the work environment was helpful and friendly, which is in my opinion the main condition for a great placement year. I also enjoyed the freedom of opportunities you can choose, during this year I have tried a lot of different areas, from basic software testing to data science pipelines in Spark. Such opportunities are great for anyone who hasn't yet differentiate his goals and main interests in the field related to IT.
As I was my first ever proper office job, it was very enjoyable experience as I got to meet tons of new people and I got to step out of my comfort zone and experiences new things. I really enjoyed the work/life balance that I got, it was really nice to have time to do all the things that I wanted to do after work like going to socialise with either my friends from home and university or with some of my work colleagues.
I absolutely loved my placement year at Egress and I have learnt so many skills that you can only ever learn while in industry. I have been involved in different projects throughout my placement, all allowing me to gain more knowledge in different areas. Above and beyond anything its the people at Egress which allowed me to enjoy my time there so much. Everyone is so lovely but also very good at what they do and you can learn so much from just talking to the people around you - everyone has some expertise to share!
I’ve definitely enjoyed my time at Egress as a placement student. Not only is my work as a marketing placement always varied and interesting with tasks ranging from putting together an internal newsletter to being on an event stand, but the atmosphere is also good fun, with monthly socials including activities such as sports day and pub quizzes.
I greatly enjoyed my placement year. The work environment was friendly and welcoming, and my colleagues were a pleasure to work with. I learnt an incredible amount in such a short space of time. The work done was consistently fun and challenging, and I rarely saw work as a chore. I believe the skills and knowledge gained from this will be incredibly useful in the future.
