Your role

You start your flexible working day at nine thirty, with an espresso and an informal stand-up with your team. Together you review the tickets in JIRA and you head back to your desk with the to-dos for the day. There you fire up your VM and SQL server, and read up on your emails and latest GitHub issues. After a chat to clarify the story details with your neighbour it’s time to code. A client sends you an urgent message with a couple of last-minute changes and bugs, but you don't mind as you know how to fix them right away.

At one o’clock, you join the entire team for a company lunch in the cantina. You play a killer game of Ping-Pong, then grab a cold drink and start reviewing the latest PR from a developer in your team. In the meantime, you slack with a stakeholder and help them out with some of their burning questions. After finishing the review, you grab a new tooling ticket to change up the pace. You finish it quickly, and use the extra time for a tech talk with a colleague before an internal demo later today.

After the demo, you join your team’s tactical meeting to review weekly metrics, projects and goals. A video call with a customer is scheduled next, which you join right after. It’s almost the end of the day and you finish reading a blog on the new language you look forward to learning. You jump on your bike for your daily 7-minute 43-second ride to Amsterdam Station where you decide last minute to join today’s meetup on test-driven development in the city to upgrade your skills and share what you learn in tomorrow’s show & tell session at the office.
