And it doesn't feel like a hierarchy; you can talk to anyone.
Meet David. He’s one of our full stack developers. David moved from the UK to Sweden in the beginning of 2020. Fitness and rugby are among the things he enjoys outside programming.
- Hi David – tell us a little about yourself
Where do I begin? My name is David, if you hadn't already guessed. I’m a full stack developer and I work with C#, .NET Golang, DevOps. I also do a little React and other front-end libraries. I’ve been working professionally for 8 years and programming since I was 12-13 years old.
Outside of programming, I like keeping fit, going to the gym and playing rugby. I also enjoy playing music, going to festivals, and car races are good fun, too! I also like going to the pub and socializing.
I moved to Sweden at the beginning of 2020 as I was bored in the UK and already knew Joakim, who was part of Webstep. So when I was looking for a job I talked to him and that was that.
I had my first meeting with Khodor and everything happened very quickly and I moved here. It really sucks that I moved here just before Covid, so I haven’t met all that many people or done much travel in Sweden. I like to travel and I’ve been to some pretty cool places like Greece, Rome, and once I went to Shipwreck Cove and saw the smuggler’s boat that was shipwrecked there. The island was also very beautiful.
- What is your role at Webstep and what are you working with right now?
I work as a full stack consultant, currently for NaKD where I’m project manager/tech lead. I can’t say too much about it as I’m building API'S to support their new NaKD mobile app for iOS. There are currently six developers in the team and some businesspeople. The app is built in .NET framework and hosted in cloud applications.
- How is life as a consultant at Webstep?
It’s great, I get to choose what I want to work with. Knowledge is important at Webstep, which is great and we have a lot of skills activities. I also like being able to choose our own tech and the people. They’re all skilled people and we get along with everyone. We all like to talk about tech, which is great.
- What do you like most about working at Webstep?
I would say mostly the people, Khodor is amazing, one of the best bosses I've ever had. And it doesn't feel like a hierarchy; you can talk to anyone.
- Where do you find your inspiration?
I get inspiration workwise during the competence evenings we hold, from the different skills we have in the company, and by my sharing my own knowledge. I like fixing problems, so if there’s a difficult issue, I want to solve it.
Personally, music and sports help me to improve myself, and I always try to be better today than I was yesterday.
