My name is Jasper and I have been working as a software engineer at Keylane for two years at the Product Development department in Utrecht.
After studying physics, I wanted to do something in a different direction. I knew Keylane from a company drink organised by my study association. Once I graduated, the ball started rolling and I started working at Keylane as a software engineer.
Lots of room to learn
I did not have much experience with programming yet, but I got a lot of time to learn it. My mentor helped me with that and worked at lot together in the beginning. There are also a lot of courses that help you on your way, such as the courses ‘Framework’, ‘Data Modelling’ and ‘SQL’. And in the meantime I can say that I’ve got it all under control.
Last summer I had one of my best assignments so far. We had to make uploads in the claim form possible. This means that when you report a damage to one of our clients, you can upload a photo or receipt as proof through the claim form. This is then stored and processed in our database. And that was a big challenge, it touches a lot of places in the code. It is an interesting process and fun to work on.
When I started at Keylane I immediately indicated that I would like to go abroad. I was told that it was possible to go to India. To me that sounded very interesting!
Last year I spent two months with a colleague in Kolkata to supervise external developers. That was really cool! And soon I will probably go again, but this time to Hyderabad.

Hard work and Friday afternoon drinks
When I think of Keylane, I think of a young and ambitious team. We are a young group in which many initiatives are taken. The junior employees who have been working there for less than a year are also being actively involved. There is a good atmosphere at the office. On the one hand, people work hard, but there is certainly time for a joke or a drink on Friday. I also started squashing weekly with a number of colleagues!
