|Client:||CarsGuide.com.au, Sydney, NSW, Australia|
I started contracting at CarsGuide.com.au in July 2014 and I am still working there at the time of this writing (six months on – January 2015). I was very happy to join them because I have always wanted to get hands-on experience working on an AngularJS Single Page App (SPA). I got my chance to do just that for the 14 September 2014 rebrand web site launch of CarsGuide.com.au.
The team at CarsGuide.com.au were very accommodating of my office workstation quirks. This is the first time I have brought my Ergotron Workfit-S workstation to work. I set up my workstation to allow me to sit and stand whenever I feel like it.
They are a fully agile working environment and the first company where I felt like they applied agile methodologies correctly. Other companies were just pretending to be agile.
The experience I gained from CarsGuide.com.au was invaluable. Working on a Google Maps application for their car listings web site was challenging but fulfilling. It will be an experience I will never forget. I also made a few close friends along the way.
