As a Telecom Integration SE, what are the opportunities to learn and work with new technologies?
The learning responsibilities belong to you. However, we can provide support and adequate content to help you. To be able to work with new technologies, you will need to re-apply and take the specific tests on the desired technology stream.
What are the key things I need to do to ensure I am successful as a Telecom Integration Engineer?
Besides the apparent technical knowledge required to do the role, and keeping yourself up to date with the latest technology updates, you should also have a comfortable and quiet environment to work from. You should set a good calendar for your week which is repeatable and which allows you to dedicate long blocks of time towards your work with Crossover.
How do you measure the productivity of a Solutions team?
We do not measure the productivity by technology. Every team has a metric which they deliver against; by default, every person within the team is measured by the same metric on a weekly basis. For example, the metric for our maintenance team is “number of bugs fixed.” The cost per unit of the maintenance team on a weekly basis is the total headcount cost of the team for a week divided by the number of bugs fixed during the same week.
I heard you have a tracking tool to monitor your teams, why do you use it?
One of the key objectives of our productivity tracker is for it to be used by our Crossover partners to log time and eventually get paid. We also log information about our Crossover partners to understand what tools and applications they are using. This helps us to build work patterns of our people and identify best practices which we can share with all our teams. As an engineer we expect that you would be spending at least 80% of your time in your relevant IDE with the remaining 20% spent on email, meetings and reviewing documents.
Do you use Agile?
Like most organizations, we make use of subsets of Agile. The one key difference though is that our teams are highly specialized in the task they do. For example, we have a maintenance team whose only task is to fix bugs on our products. Rather than being product specialists they are process specialists.
