In our monthly section "people from our company" you will get to know the empower® team. Our employees introduce themselves and talk about their beginnings, their everyday work and everything they have to say about themselves. This month you will get to know our Senior Software Engineer Stephan Venhoven.
In 2017, I decided to leave my old employer and was therefore looking for a company with a good corporate culture, training opportunities and interesting tasks. I found what I was looking for at empower®, where I work today as a Senior Software Engineer.
Every day I am fascinated by the exciting tasks, the good atmosphere in the team and especially the good coffee. I'm an absolute coffee fan, so I often find a coffee cup on a Batman coaster in my workplace. I also have a preference for sweets, so I am very proud that I have the sole sovereignty in our team over the“Who is up with bringing sweets” calendar. In the office you can usually find me quite casual with chucks, jeans and T-shirt. Since there is no dress code in our office, I like to wear a T-shirt, which I got from my colleagues. The reason for this was my first participation in an empower feature.
I hope that soon I will be able to design a feature that will provide rewards for solving specific tasks. For example, I think it would be fun to reward users for inserting the 10.000 empower® Charts within a year. So it is at least in many video games, which is a big hobby of mine.
