As a Graduate Software Engineer I am shaping the future by
Making industrial processes around the world safer, greener, more efficient and more reliable.
Describe your day to day
I work in an agile software development team with 3 other software engineers, as well as with a Product Owner (my manager) and Scrum Master (like a coach). At Honeywell I mainly work on software that controls large industrial processes (think plants that manufacture medicine, oil refineries, and breweries). I learn and use many different technologies to complete my day to day work.
Describe your biggest achievement as a Grad
Tracked down and solved an extremely safety-critical bug in industrial process software which could cause controller instructions to perform in the exact opposite way they were intended (long story!). Had the fix out to hundreds of customer sites with help from higher-ups all the way out in Phoenix, Arizona.
What is something you have learnt about yourself over your Grad journey
That I can do almost anything if I put my mind to it! Starting out a new career can be daunting at first, but as you learn and grow as a person your competence and estimation of your own abilities will rise dramatically, giving you the confidence you need to succeed.
What I like best about the Grad Program
What I like best about the Grad Program here at Honeywell is the people you meet and the supportive environment – everyone wants to see you grow and is willing to give you the help and guidance you need to become the best you can.
