We are highly talented software developers, architects, testers, business analysts and project managers. We’re different people with a lot in common. We all know what we know and what we don’t, and we all give 110% to our work. We all share the same vision of software development, and we are all traveling along the same road – as the best of friends.
Although we vary in our roles, experience, technological backgrounds, projects and nationalities, we are extremely similar in many ways. Lear more about Friends of IT by reading what some of our team members have to say.
“I’m a networking guy who is still in love with technology. My primary mission is to keep the Friends of IT on the road we chose together – the road to the exceptional. Being surrounded by smart people who share the same passion and values always keeps my motivation high. I really enjoy getting involved in projects regardless of whether I’m working with our project managers or architects, or just writing a piece of code in a team of engineers. That’s the secret of my eternal youth. :-)”
“Having an all-star team is not enough to continually achieve good results. We clearly recognize the importance of processes, and part of my work is to make sure that everyone understands them, manages them and continuously develops them. The intellectual strength of our team members makes it interesting to experiment with processes and adapt them to very specific customer environments or demands.”
“In the software world, complexity is here to stay. Tackling complexity using sophisticated tools like a whiteboard or a piece of paper is an integral part of my working day. That’s why I love what I do.”
“I’m a people person – so although I’m the tech lead, I see my job as being more about the people than about the technology. Technology is just one of the many tools we use to solve problems for our customers. Knowing when to use which tool is essential for the success of our projects.”
“You can think what you want about Steve Jobs, but he was absolutely right about one thing: design is not just what it looks like and feels like – design is how it works. It’s great to work with IT colleagues who look far beyond their technical horizons and who understand the value of design, usability and user experience.”
“There is no magic wand when it comes to managing talent in software engineering. The facts are very simple: talent is rare and in demand all over the world. But even the most talented individuals have a long way to go before they become solid software engineers. Working with these amazing young people and watching them progress every day is great. It’s why I love my role at Friends of IT.”
“Being able to keep challenging ourselves and pushing the limits of our knowledge is definitely one of the main reasons why I love being among these friends.”
“I’m a young software developer from Berlin, and I love tackling challenging projects with great, friendly people. It’s the perfect way to develop my skills, so I’m happy to be in an organization that gives me that opportunity.”
“One thing I know for sure is that, as a software engineer, you can’t allow yourself to stagnate. Even after 12 years in the job, I know that I still have a long road ahead of me. Walking down this road with like-minded friends is just awesome.”
