What do you like most about working for Sponge Hammer?
One of the best things is that working remotely actually works very well. I’ve been working from home for a while now, but I’d always felt isolated. With Sponge Hammer, I don’t feel separated and alone. I think the biggest issue with telecommunication is separation and the fact that communication between team members is minimal, and that’s just not the case with this company.
Another thing is that I love a challenge. With Sponge Hammer, I come across something new every day, and the challenges I get to work on help me grow personally. All those tasks and problems add to my knowledge and skills.
What has been your biggest challenge so far?
The biggest challenge I’d say has been this mobile project. It was an encrypted messaging service, and I found it challenging to solve all the issues that arose in the process, and to make sure all functions were in place. I learned a lot throughout that project.
If you could learn anything, what would it be?
Well, that’s a good question. If I want to learn something, I always find a way to do that. PHP is on my list, for example.
What does a typical day at Sponge Hammer look like for you?
An average day of mine is a bit monotonous: I get up, have breakfast, sit down at the computer, and work on the more important tickets. I also check emails, Teams and Slack. If I am alone, I have lunch at my desk and continue working. After work, my girlfriend and I have dinner together, and sometimes we then watch telly or play a game.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Definitely a warm place, with long sandy beaches and palm trees. I’m not too fond of cold weather. Walking on the beach calms my mind and refreshes my senses – the sound of the waves breaking has an exceptional effect on me.
