What do you like the most about your job?

It is a cliché, yet the absolute truth that working with people gives so much energy and is therefore my number 1 motivator.

What does your average day look like?

I am usually woken up (stamped around my bed) at 7am by my 3 lovely children. Around 8.30 am, I drive my kids to school, after a hilarious 'rush to school' ritual. The peace and quiet at home (Corona, you know) returns around 8.45am, where I start my working day. Reading and responding e-mails, virtually interviewing future Wheelies, making presentations, doing 1-1’s, attend project meetings, writing marketing content and sales offers are my most recurring tasks during work. Usually, I try to pick up the kids around 5u30pm, where the 'rush to bed' ritual begins. The comforting sound of sleeping children provides time for leisure, which often translates into playing the silent piano, or guitar.

  1. Joachim Zeelmaekers' blog

    Joachim is a high potential developer who works for our sister company Craftworkz. In his free time, he likes to write about his thoughts and experiences. He also gives tips and tricks, for example about choosing your first job as a developer (which you can read here). I totally agree with his vision, as he puts personal development and choice of technology at the top of his list.

  2. Goodreads

    One of my favourite hobbies is buying books and not reading them. Last month, I decided to not buy books anymore and actually read them. I installed goodreads a couple of years ago, but never used it until now. Goodreads is a book reviewing platform where you can track the books you read, wants to read or currently reading. Book nr 1 has already been devoured. 113 to go….

  3. Dansende beren

    It's no secret that listening and playing music is a passion. Discovering new music is absolutely part of that. I mainly discover this new music through the website dansendeberen.be, where new reviews are posted every day. Not only from the big bands, but also from the local scene.
