Systematic Software Engineering A/S

In September 2003, I was hired by Systematic Software Engineering A/S at the head offices in Århus, Denmark. Systematic is a software development house specializing in developing mission critical solutions for the defense and healthcare sectors as well as, in select cases, for other civilian industries, using high maturity processes. While at Systematic, I followed the company as its maturity evolved from CMMI level three to CMMI level five (the highest there is), actively participating in level five activities.

I was hired as a developer to work on Systematic's next flagship product, SitaWare, then mearely a prototype, becomming a command and control information system framework designed for multilateral interoperability and high flexibility and modularity. Within a short time of hire, it became clear that I had a lot to contribute and after having designed and implemented the application framework itself, I quickly became the de-facto product architect. After less than twelve month of hire (being his first job, that is less than a year of total professional experience) I officially assumed the role of product architect. My main contributions to the product include

As product architect (later promoted to lead developer), I was a significant adviser for developers both on the team and in the rest of the house. I developed the critical parts of the system, researched and experimented with new ideas and technologies, and acts as the technical spearhead in international co-operations, specifically with ESRI of Palm Springs, California and the IBM Centre of Excellence in Helsinki, Finland.

Aside from being lead developer, I was a code review leader and the product configuration management responsible. As such I pioneered the implementation of the concept of configuration items, a way of expressing and maintaining software components at the configuration management level, as well as introduced code quality improvement initiatives, such as using code analysis tools (e.g. FxCop). Through these efforts I has helped the product team developers write much improved code.

By the time I left, Systematic had had it's best year, about which Computerworld wrote: "Fremgangen skyldes blandt andet en uventet hurtig succes for virksomhedens kerneprodukt, kommandokontrol-softwaren SitaWare".

Systematic's offensive supplementary training program allowed I to obtain several Microsoft certifications. Realizing that such certifications provides neither relevant education nor appropriate measure of ability, I stopped pursuing them after having acquired two MCP certifications.

Main experiences gained working at Systematic include:
