Last year, the Developer Relations team in Interswitch Engineering was tasked with improving the experience of developers integrating with Interswitch APIs. There were lots of bad reviews regarding our APIs ranging from the complexity of the APIs which made integration difficult, to lack of proper API documentation and support.

However, chief among the issues was the documentation and we set out to remove the stumbling block. To achieve this, we tested several platforms before arriving at a decision on which one best suited our needs and better serve our users. …

How would you describe yourself?

That is going to be hard. Well…

A key stage to securing a role in Software Engineering teams are the technical or programming interviews. In fast paced organizations, interviewers watch out for various attributes with the common denominators including; attention to detail, understanding of key concepts, and problem analysis.
