How would you describe your field and main tasks?
The IT field offers lots of different opportunities for jobs which lets you decide what you’re most interested in. As a developer, one of my main tasks consists of thinking up technical solutions to problems so that our users have a smooth experience with our product.
My other favorite main task would be shaping and implementing new ideas so that they are available to our product users. It always makes both us and our customers very excited.
What are the most exciting and challenging parts of your job?
The most challenging part is to feel confident when a task pushes you out of your comfort zone while trying to develop a cool feature as sometimes the decided solution is not so easy to implement.
However, the most exciting part is when you then see a feature that you’ve been developing being used and liked by people. It gives a very rewarding feeling and you know you’re helping create a very meaningful tool.
How do you use your education in your position?
My education covers quite a few very different areas and this made me get into the habit of thinking beyond my specific task, while also paying close attention to details.
I chose the IT path, and therefore, as a developer I’m also using all the programming knowledge I acquired during my studies.
What are the three most important things for you in your job at Peakon?
It is very important to me that my job offers me a really good work-life balance as knowing that I have the flexibility and time to enjoy life outside work pushes me to give my best while at work. This means a lot to me as it shows that the company I work for cares about my well-being.
Another very important aspect for me is that the atmosphere in the office is friendly and positive. Being surrounded by colleagues that inspire you and from you can learn something every day is very valuable for me.
Lastly, to feel proud of what I’m developing is also very important to me. Peakon has a super interesting product that helps people raise their voices in their workplace in a way that it can make a difference and knowing that we make people happier in their everyday life is incredible.
Why is Peakon an attractive company for you?
The more I got to know Peakon as a company and throughout the interview process, meeting future colleges, the more I realized that Peakon not only ticked off my three most important things to have in a job but also Peakon’s values as a company align to my own, which ultimately is what makes the biggest difference.
Everyone makes sure you feel like part of the family and they encourage you to develop yourself in the way it makes you the happiest. I appreciate that Peakon lets me explore other areas that I may be interested in and they are open to people moving within the company, as well as supporting growth in your career.
Peakon is also a very fast-growing company and being part of the journey is super exciting.
