Jeroen Houdé

Jeroen works at ZeeBoer as a front-end developer. You can read his story below.

Jeroen was working as a warehouse employee in 2005 when he was asked if he knew anyone who wanted to work as a front-end developer at ZeeBoer. With a background in middle automation, that seemed interesting to him, so he applied and was hired. This was quite a big step. In the beginning he had to learn a lot and at ZeeBoer he was given plenty of room for this.

The way of working at ZeeBoer really appeals to Jeroen: “You get a lot of freedom here. Together with the project leaders, we discuss every two weeks what needs to be done and what the result should be. Then I can get to work. I get a lot of freedom. , I can put my ideas and own input into it. In between, we regularly visit each other to discuss progress and make adjustments.”

He made the appearance for at least 90% of the 120 customers. Besides design, he also picks up on other things. “If you have ideas about your career, this will be discussed openly. For example, training and courses can be followed if necessary.”

Jeroen thinks the atmosphere at ZeeBoer is very good, he always enjoys going to work. “There is a lot of mutual interest in each other. For example, we always inform about each other’s weekends. I myself like to make a trip on the Veluwe on my racing bike. At noon we have lunch together and Friday is French fries day with us.”

FAQ's.

What is it like to work with the Dutch?

The Dutch are very informal and direct in their dealings. So you get their opinion easily. However, a Dutchman is a man of his word. Also the lines at ZeeBoer are short. So you can easily submit your problem to Peter or a colleague.

Do I have to speak Dutch?

No, that is not necessary. Certainly not as a developer. Bernd also came to us with German and English knowledge and now he also speaks Dutch.

What kind of assignments do you do?

Our customers use our standard functionality, such as the JSON WebAPI, PDF generator and UP wizard. In addition, we build advice tools that are more customized. At the moment we are converting Utopis® to .NETcore.

What techniques do you work with?

The PIM we developed, Utopis®, is based on .NET and .NETcore. Here you will find Entity Framework, Blazor Server/WASM, CSS and HTML5 as well.

We have many different clients, the construction industry is a dynamic industry that is fully digitized at the moment and we think the atmosphere within our team is excellent.

In the afternoon we set the table for lunch together. So you don’t have to bring bread, but you can of course.

Is hybrid working an option?

Yes that is possible. We also provide good equipment at home.

Sure. We regularly go out to eat or barbecue together. Also nice: in 2021 we visited Girona and Barcelona together and we had a similar trip to the Isle of Texel in 2018.
