My name is Sean Hall.
As part of my final year of study, I began a six-month industry placement with the talented software engineering team at GroundProbe in January 2022, which has already extended to a full-time placement.
I have wanted to work in software development for a long time, and my time at GroundProbe has re-ignited that passion. Not only does the work challenge me in many ways, but the environment and people also drive and enable me to extend my skills.
The multicultural diversity of our workplace has also inspired me to take my passion for food and cooking further, trying dishes from around the world to experience a taste of unfamiliar cultures.
What’s The Best Part of Working At GroundProbe?
In the relatively short time I have been with GroundProbe, I have broadened my technology experience and developed my skill base in various ways.
I enjoy the variety of challenges that I face as part of my work. Even within a single project, I can deal with multiple software layers, each with its unique challenges. GroundProbe has given me the time and support to learn about these challenges and how to solve them. I am grateful for the wealth of knowledge and experience surrounding me, enabling me to build my skills rapidly.
“Sean joined our team as part of the UQ/BME program, completing his master’s in software engineering. Over the last five months, Sean has proven himself to be a very competent software engineer, understanding the problem quickly, taking ownership and finding the right solutions. With little experience in the technology we use, he stepped up and learned new technologies and is delivering high-quality software. It was an easy decision to offer Sean a permanent position in our team, and we are extremely excited about his prospects at GroundProbe.”
