Five weeks ago I officially started my journey here at nFuse and today I’m going to tell you a little bit more about the interview as well as my first few weeks here.
A few weeks before I started working at nFuse I received an email about a possible interview related to working at nFuse. At this time I just finished my bachelors degree and I was eagerly looking for work. Obviously I accepted the invitation and a week later I had a first interview via Microsoft teams. I was quite excited but then again, the closer the interview came, the more nervous I got.
Another day or so went by and then it was finally time to have the actual interview. When I joined the meeting and saw both Rutger and Arif, I somehow knew this was going to be the place I was going to work at. They were so relaxed and super friendly! The next thing might sound a little weird but during the entire interview I had a warm cozy feeling. When the interview ended I was informed that they were going to look at my application and regardless the outcome, I would hear from them soon. A few days later I got the news that I would be a great fit for their wonderful team. I felt a rush of energy running through me and I really wanted to start working straight away.
On the 15th of April 2021 I officially started my first day of work. The moment I stepped into the office I got a great warm welcome, including some epic goodies! The first day was mainly to get everything sorted out, like setting up my new laptop and getting familiar with all the tools we use here at nFuse. I also had to opportunity to meet the entire team, whom by far, are the greatest people I have worked with so far. The main reason behind this is the environment, everyone is treated the same and I have the feeling that they aren’t only colleagues, but also people you can count on, have a laugh with or talk to whenever you need to talk to someone.
Over the last five weeks I have learned a lot. There is actually so much to take in and so much to learn but I’m glad to say that they give me enough time to learn and keep track of things. Another thing what I really like is that, whenever I forget something, they aren’t mad, but supportive and they encourage me to do everything at my own pace. The people here are so great and I have no regrets whatsoever. Another I’d like to mention is that I have already managed to earn a certificate for datadog, which I’m very proud of.
Before I end this blog I’d like to thank Rutger as well as Arif, who both have given me this beautiful opportunity.
