Introducing our New Team Member – Josip Bijelić!
We are pleased to introduce Josip Bijelić as the latest Software Developer to join the Kogitas Team. His blended background with both Oracle and Microsoft technology will provide us the flexibility to deliver our strong pipeline of work.
In 2018, Josip completed his Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology at the Faculty of Organisation and Informatics (“FOI“) in Varaždin, Croatia. He then continued with his education while working full time and is due to complete his Master’s degree later this year. As part of his final thesis he developed a smart parking support system that uses drones to recognise and transmit the location of free parking spaces.
Josip’s core experience is delivering data driven solutions using a mixture of Oracle and Microsoft technologies. In particular, he has strong skills in database development (SQL, PL/SQL), integration layers (Rest APIs, Authentication, XML), and front end application development (WPF, C#, XAML). Most of his experience has been obtained delivering a mixture of both project work and support to a number of government organisations. This understanding of the public sector domain will be put to good use as the Kogitas Group provide services to more than 60 local authorities in the UK.
Peter Hollis, the Managing Director of Kogitas, commented that
“… we currently have a strong pipeline of work that will involve both Oracle and Microsoft development. When I interviewed Josip it was clear that his mixture of technology skills combined with his public sector experience would make him a valuable addition to the team. Since joining in early July he has settled in quickly and has already made a positive contribution through his input into the API design of the EAM product that we are developing.”
In his spare time, Josip likes to go to pub quizzes, spend time with his girlfriend, hang out with his friends and play football.
Welcome to the team Josip! We are excited to have you with us!
