Shortly after I finished school, I began working at Xebia. It offered a fantastic opportunity to grow very fast and learn by doing. I developed many new skills working with diverse technologies. I also learned a lot about important IT-related business concepts, like the Agile way of working, DevOps, cloud, testing, and security.

My team loves experimenting with new techniques, likes React, Go, Docker and Kubernetes. It keeps my job challenging and exciting! What’s cool one year, can be boring the next year, so we keep learning and experimenting. We carry a project from idea to production, and never miss a step. It’s a lot of responsibility, but that’s part of the fun. The stakeholders leave technical decisions to us as long, as long as they get excellent results. One of the projects I’m most proud of is the Xebia Academy website. It started with only a few pages where students could book a training session, and now we’ve grown it into a full-fledged webshop. It offers a wide range of IT training options so that customers can learn anything - from how to work Agile, to specific development skills, to building a continuous delivery pipeline, and more! I know for sure, this website is going to be awesome.

Not only do I love my job and all the cool projects I get to work on, but I also enjoy working where there are so many moments for just hanging out with my colleagues. Xebia organizes many events, like Innovation Day, Meetups, Knowledge Exchange evenings, movie nights, a beach party, and many others. The culture here creates a really warm and dynamic company!

If you're curious to hear more about why I think Xebia is a great place to work. I invite you to drop by for a cup of coffee with me.
