At Codit, we believe that ‘A happy employee makes a happy customer’. That is what we want. But how do you make, or keep, an employee happy? We do so by cementing this idea into solid HR actions and procedures such as training, recognition, safeguarding the organization culture, and performance management.

I help and support customers to create applications customized to their needs. In my 4 years at Codit, I have integrated different business applications at different customers. I do not only focus on the implementation part, but I also train customers and pass on the knowledge so they can deliver a project themselves.
First, I really like the way Codit helps its employees to learn new skills. We get an unrivaled Personal Training Budget that allows us to keep on evolving year in year out. Second, I always wanted to work with people. In the integration business, you collaborate a lot with others so you truly develop your social skills. A tip? Listening is very important!
I work in the Codit Managed Services team, the largest Managed Services Center for global companies that solely focuses on managing and supporting Microsoft integration solutions based on BizTalk Server and Microsoft Azure. We implement, support, maintain and adapt integration solutions to ensure the continuity of the business operations of our customers - day in day out. In short, we help customers to keep their integration solution operational at all times.
If there are hard, annoying problems at one of our customer environments, it gives me satisfaction to solve them really fast. Knowing that the systems work again as good as before and taking care of business continuity, makes me happy. I also like to solve business blocking issues, because it’s really exciting and gives me a lot of adrenalin.
In integration projects, you typically have a lot of interaction with team members, within Codit and with the customer. If you want to become a good consultant, you will need to have proper communication skills to fluently liaise with others.
You will dive into the Azure technology and leverage the possibilities it provides in the Internet of Things playing field. IoT is everywhere today, and more and more companies are undertaking steps to embrace it in their business, because its advantages are manifold. You will help designing distributed cloud solutions, based upon the requirements of the customers, which enables them to realize their IoT ambitions and be more innovative than ever before.
Over the years, I gained a lot of experience in architecting and developing SOA and ESB solutions for both private and public sector using Microsoft technologies. I also worked as a coach and trainer. Nowadays, I am leading the Architecture Board focusing on the creation and implementation of best practices and guidelines.
For sure! Technology never stops evolving, so neither do we. With the Training Budget we have the space to get certified and/or deepen out specific areas. I am certified in numerous Microsoft technologies (MCPD Azure, MCPD EA, BizTalk) and am also certified TOGAF 9.1 architect.
