    Why did you choose to work at CGI?

     I am currently in my 14th year at CGI. During these years I have had the opportunity to work with experienced colleagues in a variety of projects and client industries, which has increased my knowledge and technology expertise.

    What are the benefits of working as a developer at CGI?

    As a developer in CGI you get the opportunity to work with a great diversity of clients, both in the private and public sector. The public sector is currently undergoing major modernization. It is exciting to be a part of this digitalization.

    What do you love most about being a Java developer?

    Why did you choose to work at CGI?

    CGI offers a good working environment with a great work-life balance, where you are not expected to continually work overtime. Moreover, there are opportunities to work on a large range of projects/technologies to suit your interests. There is generally a lot of respect and trust placed on the members to carry out their work, and I feel like everyone is considered equally regardless of our individual titles/roles.

    What are the benefits of working as a developer at CGI?

    There is a lot of trust placed on developers to put their own fingerprint on the technical solution. Depending on the project and scope, it is possible to work both on regular development, architecture, deployment etc. I have worked both as regular developer and lead developer for a team of multiple people, as well as architect on some systems. There is freedom to pursue roles that interest you and management tries to accommodate your wishes to the extent that is possible.

    What do you love most about being a Java developer?

    I like building things and solving problems, whether that is implementing complex business logic, solve performance problems or build solid and secure systems. Usually the systems we build can get quite complex in terms of business logic because some of it is tied directly to legislation, and I like figuring out how to fit those requirements into the design and architecture.

    How long have you worked as a developer?

    I have been with CGI for just over 10 years. I was hired right after university. Before that I had some student jobs as developer in a freelance capacity.

    Tell us about the projects that you have been involved in/are currently working with?

    I am a part of the public business unit in Denmark, which means we support and develop a wide range of case management systems, reporting solutions etc. for the Danish government. They may help enforce legislation in Denmark - fx. If a business is required to report environmental data.

    I have been a part of a range of projects for quite distinct governmental ministries in DK. Each have quite varied legislation to enforce, so the system and domain knowledge is quite different, as well as different technical challenges to overcome.
