Sam Nogalski

Software Developer

Why are you proud to be part of the team at Aire Logic?

I'm proud to be part of a team that provides a powerful solution to assist with the front-lines of health care. Everything we do as a team means that a patient's stay in the hospital is as comfortable as can be, which is comforting in itself to be a part of.

Why did you choose us over other companies? What makes us stand out?

I chose to come to Aire Logic because of how well Mike and Joe presented the company - they are incredibly passionate about providing genuine benefits to health care. Health care is so important to us in our daily lives, yet it isn't something many people are passionate about. Having such a positive impact while being surrounded by a friendly team is something you'd be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

What 5 words would you use to describe Aire Logic?

Positive, Passionate, Driven, Fun, and Free

What's a typical day look like for a Software Developer at Aire Logic?

Start work at a reasonable time and head to my place of work, which is St James'. Make a coffee, start work as I left it the day before and then get involved in the day's meetings such as stand-ups or other ceremonies. Lunch might mean a trip to the local curry spot in the area, followed by a ward visit in the afternoon to see how our work impacts the nurses and patients on the wards.

Professional development seems to be a big thing for many people looking for a career move. How's Aire Logic set up for it? How does the company support your professional development and career growth?

Aire Logic has allowed me to spend time that I otherwise wouldn't be able to spend learning the technology I want to learn. I have the ability to spend some of my week focusing on myself, rather than the stresses of providing a high quality piece of technology to a hospital, which has helped my career growth significantly.

What's the culture and environment/vibe like at Aire Logic?

Honestly, the vibe is great. Everybody is down to earth and there isn't the sense of 'tech superiority' you find in other development teams. Everything is an open forum, especially when it's over a beer on a Friday afternoon when the beer fridge opens.

What continues to motivate you working here? What gets you up in the morning?

I genuinely enjoy work, which itself is enough to get me out of bed. There are obviously off-days where you're trying to deliver a piece of functionality, but the fact that we do work that helps nurses, doctors, and patients in their day-to-day lives itself is enough to motivate me to carry on.

What makes you feel valued? And how do you feel you can contribute to the bigger picture?

I'm able to continue to keep in touch with people at HQ, which means I get to catch up with other developers, other projects and our operations team, who sometimes provide feedback that they've heard from our clients, which makes me feel valued. Sharing the knowledge of what I am working on means I can contribute to somebody else's growth.

What's one thing you would change about the company if you could?

I'd probably open the beer fridge earlier on Fridays.

What does success look like for you and how does that marry up with Aire Logic?

Success to me is being in a job that I enjoy, doing work that has a positive impact. Everybody measures success differently, but I think if you're happy, then you must be doing something successfully. Aire Logic has a similar story of doing work that has a positive impact.

How do we celebrate success?

We have regular get-togethers at quarterly updates, a great time away each year, and a quality Christmas do. We're able to wind down at regular intervals, rather than just once a year that you find at other companies. Having the ability to wind down shows me that we are celebrating something successful.
