The adventures of Codeborne in Japan.
The adventures of Codeborne in Japan.
There is an opening at Codeborne. For experienced software developers who wish to continuously become better in their craft. For those who would like to work intensively in a pair programming setting, learn continuously new technologies, and write really clean and good code. To give them a bit better idea what it is like to work at Codeborne, we asked a few of our colleagues what they think.
This is the interview with Mira. She is originally from Ukraine but has been making waves in Estonian tech field for a decade already. Before joining Codeborne a year and a half ago she developed for Fortumo and several other companies. During her time at Codeborne she has worked on projects for a Japanese energy company, a very successful Estonian start-up, and a Russian bank.
It is a rare moment. Codeborne is actively looking for experienced software developers who would like to create high-quality software to help our clients. The work environment in Codeborne is unique so we have asked some of our senior developers to tell what it is like to work at Codeborne.
Andrei has been at Codeborne from the beginning. In more than 10 years he has worked on 15 projects. Andrei has also been leading the development of Selenide - a widely used open-source framework for concise UI tests in Java. He also presents at conferences around the world.
Codeborne is on the lookout for a few exceptional experienced programmers to join the team. To give you an idea of how unique it is to work at Codeborne, we interviewed a couple of our senior developers.
Jaan has worked at Codeborne for 9 years. He has worked on more than 15 projects with clients from Estonia and abroad. Unexpectedly, Jaan has also learned to understand Russian while working extensively with one of our Russian clients.
You are not a programmer. You have a career, maybe in a totally different industry. But programming intrigues you, you decide to give it a chance. How does it look like?
Pair programming is a strong part of our DNA. 10 years in the business as Codeborne has proved it works and works well. And then the COVID-19 locked us all in our homes. What next? Easy, we continue the same way, programming in pairs. How is that happening?
Planning to offer your customers the benefits of SEPA Instant Payments, but being short of time or missing the team to deal with all the technical hassle? We might be the perfect match!
In early 2018 Coop Pank, a newcomer in the Estonian banking market was looking for partners to build a new loan system. The old system was not fulfilling all their needs. We thought - we know banking and we are ready for new challenges. We got the mandate to build it.
Has this happened to you? We helped Elisa in Estonia to create a set top box that would solve this situation.
Estonia is only 45,339 km2 with 1,32 million people living here and on average 28 people/km2. Comparing with Germany for example where 227 people must share their space on one sq. km, we think we have quite enough room. But You know what – we still have over 200 local municipalities organizing our local life and resources.
For the first time in the world Transferwise service was implemented into a bank. The partner was LHV, Estonian innovative bank. As the development partner for LHV mobile apps, we share some insights from this journey.
We had previously revamped online banking for private customers for Bank Saint Petersburg (BSPB) and got positive feedback from its customers. Then mobile banking. So, it was time for business customers.
A picture says thousand words, right? A moving picture - even more. With that idea we recorded some of the cool features in online and mobile banking that we have introduced recently.
Estonia is currently half-way through a project replacing all 700 000 electricity meters with smart meters. For end consumers it obviously means no more trouble reporting readings in the end of the month. But the actual goal is to free network operator from the meter read collection hassle and build low-voltage network heartbeat monitoring. We at Codeborne are heavily involved in developing systems like that.
Where do we spend electricity? Good question, which usually does not get a quick answer. In the best case we know the size of monthly energy bills and that’s it. While working with self-service solutions for Estonian Energy and Elion smart home project, we got personally interested in the topic. Likewise we wanted to understand, can we actually save by consuming smarter and buying electricity with prices tied to power exchange.
In early spring 2014 Ural Bank of Reconstruction and Development (UBRD) publicly launched their new online bank. We started from the scratch in August 2013 and a little more than one month later bank employees were able to login and make some payments. We kept constantly adding new features iteration by iteration and in four months later the new online bank was ready for public launch.
As it seems that the rest of the world is catching up with building state-wide data hubs for energy market management, we thought to share how did we do it in Estonia.
Markswebb Rank&Report analytics agency in Russia just released their 3rd annual ranking of Russian mobile banking solutions.
Both of our customers in Russia - Bank Saint Petersburg (BSPB) and Ural Bank of Reconstruction and Development (UBRD) - were well represented in the results.
“Gosh, it’s the football final tonight and i have to skip it because i have to be … ” - have you found yourself in this situation before? We in Codeborne were in this situation in summer 2010 having scheduled our company summer days exactly for the football World Cup final. Problem was serious as we did not want to cancel the summer days, rescheduling was complicated and we wanted to see the football. Techno freaks, as we were, many good ideas came into mind.
Due to intense competition and rapidly changing telecommunications market, Starman (top 3 Estonian cable and internet provider) was looking for a development partner who could quickly adapt and change development directions with them when the situation required.
For the company, time to market was not only a textbook term, but everyday phrase - luckily for us as well.
Recently, here at Codeborne, we created an advanced online bank for Bank St. Petersburg from scratch in just five months.
This mid-size Russian bank is a major player in its home city and region. We decided to share the details on how we did this project, and also to talk about some of the implementation details.
We have a couple of web applications written in Scala using the Scalatra web framework from LinkedIn. A good option with Scalatra is to use Scalate as a template engine....
