Tell us Bartel, what is it you like the most about your job as front-end developer?
The fact that there is always one next step to reach perfection. That challenges me every time.
What’s the best advice you can give potential new coworkers?
You don’t have to be in fashion to know about fashion. I am not the most fashionable person, but I have learned a great deal about fashion in a short period of time. So, you don’t have to wear the most fashionable clothes, to know something about it. I’m the living proof!
Teach me something I don’t know in the next five minutes.
I want to teach you about the boy scout rule, ever heard about that? Boy scouts learn to always leave their camp clean and tidy. Even cleaner than it was when they arrived. That’s a rule I also try to live up to.
What’s your favorite moment at Merchandise Essentials so far?
I like our monthly KPI meetings with the whole Merchandise Essentials team. All teams present their achievements and targets from last month. It’s fascinating and it gives me energy. I feel that everybody has the same energy. The monthly meetings make us a team.
What’s your favorite core value and why?
For me, that’s ‘Premium Quality’. This core value is the most appropriate for me, because I always try to apply this in the codes I write. I already taught you about the boy scout rule. This rule is important to me and applies to this. I make every code readable, understandable and structured.
