Javier Ruiz Ferrer

Software Engineer


Everyone was very welcoming & engaging from start to finish

Hello, my name is Javier and I come from a small village on the border of Valencia, Spain. I recently joined ValueBlue as a Software Engineer, focused mainly on front-end development. I graduated in Computing Science at the Polytechnic University of Valencia and have been working in the field since then. For the past 5 years, I was working at Europe’s largest online travel agency, eDreams, and just before joining ValueBlue I was working at Shapelets on a big data project.

How did you come in contact with ValueBlue?

While researching exciting opportunities in the Netherlands, I came across ValueBlue and was immediately intrigued since it was very closely related to my work at Shapelets. It’s an exciting area of business that I only recently discovered and feel has an exciting future with a lot of new things to discover. I wanted to be a part of that!

As a developer you have lots of job opportunities, why did you choose ValueBlue?

Mostly because of the opportunities to work on something fairly new and innovative for our customers but also, I had a really smooth interview process where everyone was very welcoming & engaging from start to finish.

What are you going to do in your first 6 months? / What do you want to accomplish at ValueBlue?

Of course, I want to be a valuable member of the development team, but also, I would like to share with the team and organization some of the learnings from my previous experience in terms of optimizing product development processes so that we can launch products of higher quality in a faster way.
