Have you ever heard about The Butterfly Effect? If so, you know that small things can drastically change the world. That is my ‘TIBCO Story’ in just two sentences. Continuing with the movie theme, I would like to describe my first six months working as an associate consultant at TIBCO Software.
My first day at TIBCO was like ‘Suits’, and yes, I was like Mike but Harvey also was there. I had just graduated and had more than two years experience in IT. My resume was quite good, but even 10 years experience is not enough! You can have a nice diploma, knowledge of programming languages, and experience, but that’s not enough if you want to grow! At TIBCO, we’re still developing ourselves and this common attitude regarding personal and professional growth was the biggest surprise for me.
Do you remember the final dogfight and plane crash? Well, at TIBCO, practice is the best teacher. That’s why during your first months you will get lots of training and opportunities to break something down. I took advantage of all of these opportunities, but the first time I sat down to build the development environment took me 20 hours, give or take. Today, I do this in 30 minutes. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
A Beautiful Mind.
My biggest achievement in the first months? Working almost like John Nash, you are finally creating something useful. After long tests your code is ready for the market—yes, I mean the release day.
The first production release is always nice, but feeling your solution make somebody’s work easier is awesome! During the shadowing experience at my first customer, I’ve done the straight connection between the two working environments. Not so much, but it is saving something real: customer’s time!
The Shawshank Redemption.
Why do I think you should join TIBCO? The answer is obvious. Joining worldwide corporations often means losing your independence or that you are just a spoke on wheel. But not at TIBCO. Here, you are treated as a partner. If you want to learn something new, you can through a variety of offered trainings. You can create a personal development plan. I mean real development, not just changing titles. Trainings, courses, challenges. Traveling? A lot! If your current job makes you feel like Andy from Shawshank Redemption, you should definitely apply at TIBCO. You won’t regret it!
