The work journey of Erik Witteveen

Are you curious about the work journey of Erik Witteveen? Read below about Erik’s thoughts.

 

1: How did you experience your work at Convident (overall)?

I always experience working at Convident as very pleasant. We have a nice office with a good atmosphere and up to date devices, hardware and software. For example, we work on fine PCs and there is always room to improve and we listen to this. Do you prefer an Apple PC? Then this will be arranged. Of course the general atmosphere at Convident is also pleasant and there is always the opportunity for a conversation, joke or a game, but there is also very serious and hard work which I really appreciate. The balance between hard work and a nice chat is very good.

I have experienced the development function that I fullfill within Convident as fun and very instructive. Within this position there is also room to develop yourself and the idea is given that we always look at what suits the company best. But at the same time also what suits the person best, in short, an excellent combination to grow. The work is busy and demanding, but in the period that I have worked at Convident I have learned a lot about project management (planning and regulating hours), development and the general structure within our professional clients. My working period has therefore been an extremely instructive period that will be of great use to me now and in the future. I hope to learn a lot more with and from Convident in the coming years.

I have been able to give my ideas for growth and development not only in the monthly management meeting, but also continuously during the execution of work. Often this has been acted upon and my ideas have been implemented. For example, I was able to develop my own ideas to improve the quality of work, which I currently see as one of the major USP pillars of Convident.

 

 

2: Did you feel accepted by our colleagues (working atmosphere)?

From the very first moment I was included by the colleagues of Convident as a full team member in the work but also the activities within Convident. For example, I have had nice experiences with communication within the team and there was immediately good switching at the start of the day, so that you always have a nice start to your day. On Friday afternoon I was also able to immediately show my game skills in a game of Krunker with the whole team to end the week. This as a temporary replacement for Friday afternoon drink because Corona reigned. This is one of the examples of the activities that are arranged within Convident.

 

3: Would you recommend future employees to work at Convident?

I would definitely recommend future employees to work at Convident. I believe that Convident is a very good place to grow in the field of development, marketing and project management. There is a lot of knowledge within the organisation and if you have the drive to use this, everyone will want to help you with this. By any means.

Even if you possess all the tricks of the trade, there is still room within Convident to broaden yourself. For example, there are quarterly KPI meetings to talk to the HR manager within the organization about your own developments and the developments Convident would like to broaden. In addition, you can always walk in to discuss your ideas with the board, management or colleagues. Within Convident there is also the possibility to develop your own ideas and we are constantly working on improving and implementing new techniques. Do you have a good idea about this? Then everyone within the organization will listen carefully to what you have to say and whether this is a workable and executable plan.

 

4: What grade would you give to your work at Convident and why?

I give working at Convident an 8, it’s a good place to learn the tricks of the trade and broaden yourself. Convident is also a place where people work hard and constantly improve, which sometimes demands a lot from a developer. Do you like your man or woman, do you like an informal working atmosphere, and are you willing to work hard and keep your agreements? Then Convident is a wonderful organisation to start or grow further in design, development, and (online) marketing!

5: What will you take with you from your Convident experience through the rest of your career?

At Convident I learned a lot about development and project management and I was able to develop many of my own ideas. I was also able to improve my existing knowledge of programming. What I will take with me in the future in my career is an attitude that I was taught at Convident to tackle problems and always offer a suitable solution for a problem or great development. This is regardless of the status, the person, or the urgency of the problem or question.
