What does your working day look like?

At 08:45 you walk into the office, it is already pleasantly busy. You put your things away, grab a cup of coffee and chat with colleagues about what you did the night before. From 09:00 you are ready to start your working day, today there are two projects on the program. You start the morning with a kick-off. Your Project Manager explains a new project and you get to know the customer through the Project Manager’s stories. You will be working on this project until 12:00, after which you have an evaluation moment. At 12:30 pm you have lunch with some of your colleagues. Sometimes this is outside, sometimes a game of table tennis or you take a walk.

From 13:00 you are ready to get started on your next project. You have already had a kick-off of this, so you can get started right away. Halfway through the afternoon you get an urgent job from another customer, which you get to work on with a colleague. It takes a lot of effort to get it done, but the kick when it’s successful makes up for everything! Then quickly return to your own project, to ensure that you can look back on a successful planning at the end of the day. Take a quick look at what’s on the schedule for tomorrow and then you can go home at 5:30 PM.

As a backend developer at Social Brothers, no day is the same. You work on various projects, you learn to work with your colleagues with the latest techniques and technologies and you contribute your own knowledge, so that your colleagues can also learn from you.

Would you like to work in a growing organization that is eager for new, large projects and in a team that wants to take on the challenge together with you? Then apply immediately!
