I still remember the very first day walking into Ricston Ltd’s Office for the first time as an official employee. I was welcomed by everyone as a member of the team and could feel that everyone expected me to make a contribution. I was immediately set up by a member of the Dev team and quickly felt comfortable in my new and stimulating workplace. I embarked on a Mulesoft training course for Anypoint essentials without delay.
The experience aided me in better understanding the remarkable reach and influence that the Mule ESB and Anypoint Studio have in current business/technology situations. I quickly realised that working at Ricston Ltd will not be a trivial task and that I would become an integral part of the team, as I would be working on several significant and practical projects, including the use of Industrial tools such as Apache Hadoop and Kafka to understand the world of Big Data better. I have also been involved in an in-house development project, that uses various technologies and includes the creation of new connectors to obtain data from various well known APIs such as; Twitter, YouTube, MeetUp and Reddit. I was greatly encouraged to collaborate with fellow team members to maximise work efficiency and this has also been beneficial to my professional skills as I have been learning from senior developers.
The software development – as invigorating as it is – is only a part of what it means to work at Ricston Ltd. The opportunities I have had to meet new people and establish new friendships, helped me develop myself, both as an employee and as a person. I have constant review from my supervisors, providing me with great constructive criticism and appraisal to further improve myself. They also talk to me about my dreams, and ambitions, not because they felt they had to, but because they truly cared. The company has made sure to also provide us with after-work social activities such as team BBQs on a beach or Happy Hour on a Friday afternoon. Thanks to these activities I have been able to bond with employees from different departments and not just the development team.
I believe there are various reasons to take up an internship at Ricston Ltd. The work done here is advanced, meaningful and extremely current in today’s rapidly advancing, technological world. Since Ricston places a large emphasis on Education and personal advancement, they have encouraged me to remain working with them while I finish my University course, based on my availability and without compromising my studies. The dedication the staff have to their jobs and fellow colleagues is also something that will always remain with me. Ricston Ltd gives the opportunity to greatly advance in the computing Industry, it certainly has in my case!
