It is my special pleasure to introduce our newest team member, Tuğçe Nur Taş. She joined us in October 2022 as a front-end developer and technical project manager.

Tuğçe Nur is an organizational talent that has a bird’s-eye view of projects, which allows her to keep them on track. Combined with her expertise in web technologies, she is a great asset to our team.

Tuğçe Nur and my path crossed for the first time in 2017 at a Rails Girls event in Bern. She moderated the event, and I was there as a participant. A few weeks later, we met at Impact Hub Zurich and talked for hours. I was blown away by her career, her talent, and her personality. After an apprenticeship as a biology lab technician, she did a coding bootcamp and made a lateral move as a developer. She motivated me to continue learning to code. It was a relief to meet someone who had already succeeded in my venture. Thanks to her efforts as City Lead at Code Excursion, we never lost track of each other. I followed her advice, started an internship as a web developer and ended up at required in 2020, where we continue our journey together.

You are required!

How she found her way to required is best read in her words:

Since my move to IT, there have been few people who have left such a positive impression on me as Corina. If I don’t know what to do next, a quick call to her is enough to get me motivated again. This is also how I came to work with her.

About a year ago, I got a text message from Corina: “Do you have time for a virtual coffee?”.

And soon I learned that required is looking for new teammates. Since I had already heard a lot from her about the agency, she didn’t need much convincing. In January 2021, I met with Karin in the Binz office. Actually, we just wanted to meet for a quick coffee. But before we realized it, three hours had passed chatting.

My first impression of required was very sympathetic, and I had decided this spring to officially apply and start the process. During this time, I was still conducting more interviews at other companies. But the transparent and well-thought-out process had convinced me. We were getting to know each other. I am otherwise familiar from application processes that I have to be convincing as an applicant. Here, the agency also applied to me.

In summer, I heard that the open position was already filled. Spoiler Alert: it was Jeff 🎉. However, the agency made me a proposal for a role that didn’t yet exist at their company: project management and development.

Honestly, how often does it happen that a company creates a role that fits me.

All I can say is: It’s a match!
