Why work in our Digital Enablement capability?

Jon Hay

Digital Enablement is a fancy way of describing how technology can support and enable organisations to work smarter, flex faster and generally make day to day employee life better through effective use of technology.  

At Sysdoc, we understand that Digital Enablement is not just a matter of technology, but how we mere humans interact with that technology; it could be the best system in the world, but if nobody can use it then it might as well be a very expensive doorstop. 

Working as part of the Digital Enablement team you will be working with other multi-skilled individuals putting your technical skills to the test developing creative solutions to varied and complex problem statements with human-centered design as a core pillar for everything we do. We are collaborative and supportive of each other, blending our skills to ensure you are always playing to your strengths whilst also giving you the opportunity to expand your skillset. Our customers are often ambitious but unaware of how they can do technology better, we try to promote innovation through edge technologies (where sensible) and take a pragmatic, common-sense approach. Autonomy and creativity is encouraged, and we take the view that everyone has a voice; if you’ve got a better idea on how we should do something, we’ll run with it.

You will work with a range of web-based frontend technologies, platforms as a service and bespoke backend solutions where we feel we need to augment an existing system or technology to get a better result for our clients. We blend technology, user experience and the (world famous) Sysdoc DNA into everything we do giving you a much broader workplace experience than simply writing code; understanding why we are writing code is just as important as the code itself, what are we trying to solve and why.  

You will work within SCRUM or Kanban methodologies (depending on the size of the project) where we regularly review how we are performing, how we can perform better and celebrating our successes. Our projects are typically a mix of innovative user interface, intelligent information design and future & upgrade focused application design – we want our solutions to be able to evolve and improve without racking up technical debt over time. 

Testing and quality assurance play a key part of working in the team through paired programming, peer reviews and effective testing strategies. We never underestimate users and take a defensive approach to solution implementation ensuring that the user always gets some feedback and knows what to do next if something goes wrong. 

We are a social and close-knit team (as is the wider Sysdoc team) and have regular get togethers (albeit virtually now) to have a beer, chat and catch up on recent events or other cool stuff going on in the tech and wider world.

Process Excellence – more relevant than ever

Love it or loathe it, process is an integral part of every industry and it is going nowhere. I work as a consultant who operates within the Process Excellence and Transformational Change space and almost all issues and problem statements, I see my clients face across industries can start to be solved, or at least improved, with well-defined and understood processes. These processes in turn facilitate value-adding change, in line with business strategy.

What is your ‘why’?

I was trying to think at the weekend, as to why I work for Sysdoc. Of course, like any company, we want to drive people to approach us and be bought into our brand, but it is not always that easy. One thing I always found difficult when I was searching for a new job, was knowing what a company was truly like. We see so many hiring campaigns and videos of people laughing, deep in thought, grouped together or socialising over drinks, but that is an absolutely impossible way to find out what the company culture is like.

Who even cares about culture?

One of the issues we all face in managing complex change and transformation is affecting changes in culture. Culture is one of the most complex and important concepts for any organisation. It’s the basic essence of who you are, it’s the deeper level of the basic assumptions and beliefs that are shared by colleagues.
