I wanted to work as a Software Developer

I’m a Senior Java Developer in APS department. My team is responsible for maintaining and developing an application used by a mobile phone repair company across all the Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland).

In Netcompany, I got the opportunity to work as a Java developer, which I couldn’t get in my previous company. Netcompany trusted in my capabilities even though I didn’t have any professional experience in this position – and time showed that it was the right choice.
 

No micro management and a lot of responsibility

Netcompany gives a lot of responsibility from the very beginning and puts a lot of trust that You can do Your job properly. There is no micro management and you feel treated as an equal part of the team at all times.

I was surprised a little bit by the management style that I described above – it was a little hard to get used to at first, but I grew to really like it after some time. I was really surprised that nobody was standing behind my back and asking me every 5 minutes when my tasks will be finished and that I have a lot of freedom in making decisions about my own work.
 

Great career opportunities in cross border teams

I have been promoted to Senior Developer after 2 years of work and I’m really happy about this. I think the career opportunities are really good and the path that leads a developer to become a potential manager in the future is great. I wholeheartedly agree that “IT people leading IT people” is the best approach in the industry.

I really enjoy working with my team both in PL and DK. Everybody is supportive, eager to help with anything and we can always count on each other. Apart from that, we just really like each other on a personal level too.
