Corina is required!

Stefan Velthuys,

We are happy to welcome Corina in our team! As a frontend developer Corina will support us and our customers in bringing sophisticated designs alive to the browsers.

In May 2019, we decided to try a new hiring way, at least for us, and placed a job ad on freshjobs in the classic way. We described this experience in our blog: This time classic: We Are Hiring

How Corina then came across required and what happened next is best read in her own words:


Once I understood that learning a programming language has many parallels to studying an ordinary language, I had my heart set on a career in tech. I started the side-project Code Excursion to help women* make a career change into tech by teaching them the basics of coding. Having worked on Code Excursion during my spare-time since 2017, I knew how much joy I get from working on my own terms. That’s why I had the vision of finding an employer that would understand my need for trust and freedom at the workplace in order to thrive.

I came across the required blog on Linkedin and couldn’t believe what I was reading. Had I just discovered the only completely remote web agency in Switzerland? After all, the company I had been wishing for actually existed AND had a job opening for a lateral entrant with a diverse background. Having switched careers from the tourism sector to web development left me feeling like an imposter at times, so I used to write in the motivational letter what I assumed others would want to hear. But with a company as cool as this one I knew I had the chance to let them know exactly who I was and what I needed from a company to be happy in the long run. It was definitely scary to be that vulnerable, but it was worth it! A few days later my virtual interviewing process started and before I knew it my dream of working, where I want when I want (as long as there is internet! 😄), came true.

Since starting as a frontend developer, the required team has been passing on their vast programming and design knowledge. I have been nothing but overwhelmed with their way of working and their kindness as a team.

Thanks for the past months. I can’t wait to see what is to yet to come! 👩🏼‍💻🚀
