I love learning new programming languages

Mikk, 30 Jul 2020

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.

Tiit, Jaan, 11 May 2020

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?

Working with numbers can be easy

Codeborne, 03 May 2017

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.

Единый интернет-банк для частных и юридических клиентов - миф или реальность?

Tiit, Anton, Andrei, 05 Jun 2015

Недавно в России появился единый интернет-банк для юридических и частных лиц - «Банк «Санкт-Петербург». Новшество состоит в том, что мы сделали интернет-банк для юридических лиц на той же платформе, что и для частных. Он выглядит так же, работает так же, ощущается так же удобно. И не надо никуда переключаться!

Tiit, Toomas, Tarmo, 16 Dec 2014

Estonia is currently half-way through a project replacing all 700 000 electricity meters with smart meters.

Aivar, Tiit, Jarmo, 29 Sep 2014

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.

Гибкий интернет-банк от разработчиков лучшего в Европе

Anton Keks, 04 Feb 2014

This is an abstract of our presentation at iFin 2014 banking conference in Moscow.В наше время ни для кого уже не секрет, что дистанционное банковское обслуживание позволяет не только сохранить расходы на обслуживание клиентов, но и сделать использование банковских услуг гораздо удобнее – не выходя из дома, или прямо из автомобиля, стоящего в пробке.Математика здесь простая – чем больше клиентов в интернете, тем дешевле их обслуживать и тем больше от них прибыль. Остается вопрос: как заманить текущих и будущих клиентов именно в интернет?
