1) What is your role at Plas­mi­on?

I have been with Plas­mi­on sin­ce April 2023, ser­ving as the Head of Soft­ware De­ve­lo­p­ment. In this role, I pro­vi­de sup­port and gui­dance to our ma­nage­ment and cus­to­mers. My re­spon­si­bi­li­ties in­clude ana­ly­zing plan­ned pro­ces­ses and de­ve­lo­ping so­lu­ti­ons that seam­less­ly ali­gn with the needs of both par­ties. Ad­di­tio­nal­ly, as­sis­ting col­le­agues with tech­ni­cal chal­lenges is also a part of my role.

2) What skills are par­ti­cu­lar­ly va­luable for your work at Plas­mi­on?

Di­stin­gu­is­hing bet­ween small and lar­ge-sca­le so­lu­ti­ons is a va­luable skill in this po­si­ti­on. It is equal­ly im­portant to main­tain a per­spec­ti­ve on the „big pic­tu­re“ when im­ple­men­ting any so­lu­ti­on. As a de­ve­lo­per, the fo­cus should al­ways be on pro­vi­ding a prac­ti­cal so­lu­ti­on for the customer—one that sup­ports them wi­t­hout over­whel­ming them with un­neces­sa­ry com­ple­xi­ty.

3) Why did you choo­se Plas­mi­on as an em­ploy­er?

Plas­mi­on seeks simp­le and easy so­lu­ti­ons for its cus­to­mers, and the­se are the same goals I aim to achie­ve with my soft­ware. The op­por­tu­ni­ty to „think out­side the box“ with Plasmion’s pro­ducts and re­se­arch, di­ving into un­dis­co­ver­ed re­alms of our world, spark­ed my in­te­rest and mo­ti­va­ted me to join the team. I am ex­ci­ted to be part of this jour­ney.
