New Swedish team lead strengthens Malaysian development team
“I think I can bring lots of expertise in developing for making applications for Monitor. I’ve been doing it for nine years, and I’ve been involved in lots of different types of applications and products with wide knowledge of the MONITOR ecosystem and I can come with great input to the Penang development team where most of them are quite new in developing for MONITOR.”
William Colling, an experienced system developer from Sweden is set to lead the Penang development team. He has been with Monitor for 10 years and has worked on development of various applications such as the web shop, automated storage system and several of Monitor’s standard products, handling both front- and backend development.
“You can be a very good programmer but then if you start developing for MONITOR you have to adjust and get familiar with that kind of development.” William shares his views and experience on being an effective developer in Monitor. We believe that the young development team in Malaysia will greatly benefit from his expertise in application development and wide knowledge of the MONITOR ecosystem.
His new role as the Development Team Leader for Monitor Malaysia will be his first to take on a leadership role. He is looking forward to bring his years of development experience to Penang, and be a bridge between the Swedish and Malaysian development teams.
"My advice is to be clear about what you want, and things will normally work out at Monitor.”
“One of my goals is to work closer with the Swedish development team so that we can help each other out in different ways.” William says.
Transitioning into a leadership role will be a new challenge for William as he will now become a mentor to a team of young developers, and he is ready to take it on the Swedish way. “I will continue to lead the team with the Swedish Monitoranda, which is the Monitor spirit.” William states confidently.
Having worked in the Penang office for three months in the past, William felt welcomed and really enjoyed the experience. When the chance came along, he grabbed it immediately. The original plan was to move to Penang in April, but due to the pandemic, William’s plans had to be delayed. He is looking forward to making the transition over to Penang as soon as possible, as we are eager to receive him as early as the situation permits and grow the development team further.
Malaysia is home to Monitor’s Southeast Asian Headquarters and houses not only the development team, but also a support team, consultants, as well as sales and marketing team.
