Hi Bas, why did you choose to join S4D?
I left a company which could not make up its mind, it was continuously asking itself the question whether it wanted to be a project or product-based company. S4D definitely has a vision that aligns more to my way of thinking. The product vision and partner oriented mindset really appealed to me. Furthermore I was intrigued by the open and transparent culture. At the same time this opportunity was a great match for me, I liked the idea of being able to work on new skills and become proficient in a new domain while also bringing my skillset and experiences to S4D.
What is your main goal to achieve with S4D?
The way the company is growing requires a renewed approach to the technical architecture and front-end solutions. My goal is to help further transform parts of the solution into a more modular, scalable and robust system so that the products we develop can grow together with the company.
What will be the biggest challenges?
At my previous job I was a technical lead and ran two teams, even though at the time felt like I might not have been totally prepared for it. I had much more responsibilities than I have in my new role. This change gives me more time to work on development/programming tasks but it requires a large shift in focus in my technical and personal development. In the end, I embrace the challenges of software development and this is the reason I got into the business and I am excited to further develop myself.
