Q: Why do you work here at Safened?
A: Because the company offers a great technical stack and stability. Also a good work-life balance with enough flexibility that helps me organize my own work.
Q: And as a Developer specific?
A: we work with a Microservices oriented architecture with the latest .NET core versions, Docker containers and we use Azure DevOps as a platform for continuous integration. Next to that we have a good coverage of unit + integration tests. Those are things that are modern and challenge me every day.
Q: Ok. sounds nice indeed. Anything else?
A: uhhhm... vale. We use a Bus to manage the communication between Microservices and we have a good understanding and usage of IDE for the .NET environment. I also think we have a good approach to the way we use Agile methodologies. I like that a lot!
Q: And what can people expect to find at Safened Barcelona?
A: I think a great atmosphere with a cool and senior team. We are people that like to do things together. We play paddle/pádel every week and hang out for Friday drinks. So I think you can find a nice environment where you can also make friends.
