After a couple of years, I felt I wanted something new to further develop myself, and so I joined Young Capital, specifically for their Information Analyst traineeship. They’ve helped me expand my education through different bootcamps and courses. Via Young Capital I met with a number of companies, among which ValueBlue. And that felt like a great fit from the start.
Why did you want to work at ValueBlue?
My background is pretty much centered around building bridges between IT & business. I noticed in my first contact with ValueBlue that our product, BlueDolphin, is also designed for that purpose. As I’ve been told from the first time I had contact with ValueBlue, and since then those words have proven true, is that you get a lot of responsibility, and also a lot of diversity in your tasks. Also, I want to feel like I give extra value to both ValueBlue as well as our customers. Due to the way BlueDolphin has been developed, as an easy to use platform, I’ve been able to do that pretty much right away. That gives me a great deal of satisfaction.
Besides that, in that first conversation I had, I spoke with Jordy (Dekker), and we hit it off right away. The social aspect of my work is very important to me, and that first positive impression has definitely extended. Everyone is approachable, due to the “flat” organizational structure. You do not have 5 layers of management above you, and everyone is prepared to help, if you need it. I really appreciate that mentality and social aspect within ValueBlue. In fact, I even socialize with colleagues outside of work.
