The first day Miguel came to work wasn’t only exciting for him, we didn’t know who to expect to walk into our offices either. His job interview process was completely conducted with lagging video-chats from Asia, where this lucky son of a gun had been spending the last year. The WiFi there left a lot to be desired, but the climate on the other hand was up to par, this was proven by the tank-top he wore during his first job interview.
Our “Tanky” is an experienced full stack developer and will mostly put his efforts into everything back-end. His interest in development grew from his high school studies - multimedia, which he developed further at Sint-Lucas during his media-arts course. Because his preference grew for the technical instead of the artsy side of things he decided to start his career at Ollie in Ghent as a developer. But also self-employed he managed to complete numerous projects. During his long trip to Asia he could find his bearings and recharge his batteries to muster up the energy to start with us once he returned. It can only be a good sign that his choice of scarce upper body garment caused a lot amusement at the office. Welcome Tank- erm, Miguel!
Generation Next straight out of college can also find a spot behind our desks ;-) Linde (front-end) and Cedric (back-end) are our new interns. Just a couple of weeks in our team they seem to adapt like fish to water. Cedric studied electronics-ICT at Odisee. Cruising on his bike through our street, de Visserij, our offices peaked his interest. The ball soon started rolling: he came for his internship application and we thought “This one’s ours!”, now he’s already part of the start-up of new projects.
Linde’s story is very similar to the one of Cedric. This Devine’s Prodige raised some eyebrows during her application for an internship for our front-end departement. She found us on the list of companies given to her at her college where she saw our name: Code d’Or. Confusion ran high for some, but Linde was more intrigued by our name than she was by a mundane piece of chocolate. So she contacted us and we responded with a resounding “Yes!”.
Like we mentioned before: we still have open spots. Websites don’t develop themselves (yet). We are definitely in the market for back-end, front-end and digital marketeer profiles to join our teams. Junior, medior or senior isn’t what we focus on, a wide spread basic know-how and healthy can-do mentality go a long way! Check out our job-listing and what we have on offer and who knows we might raise a glass to your successful first work-day!
