What did I do at Arvato?

In October 2013 I started working at Netrada Europe GmbH as a junior software engineer. During spring 2014 Netrada Europe GmbH was taken over by Arvato Bertelsmann and subsequently split into Arvato Verwaltungsgesellschaft mbH and Arvato Betriebsgesellschaft mbH, separating administration and fulfillment.

During my time at Arvato, I have gained a lot of experience in logistics and warehouse management software. Together with my colleagues I developed the order management system that was used by Arvato's customers. In the process of further development, I learned a lot about working with legacy systems and was able to significantly improve my skills in understanding foreign code.
