1) Can you tell us a little bit about you?
Hello, I’m Benjamin and I joined SERIAL… Hmmmm 4 years ago as a Front-End Developer with an affinity for UI / UX.
2) What was your background before joining us?
Not much. I joined SERIAL directly after having finished my graduation internship (school of engineer ESIEE Paris) in Dassault Systèmes. I wanted to come back to the area where I came from and I was able to get in touch with the company through a collaborator. “There was a match” and now, it’s been four years since I joined the SERIAL family, and I like it very much.
3) How did your integration go within SERIAL?
Very good 🙂 I began by working on a project on the platform in open-space. It permitted me to meet a lot of people at the lunch break in the cafeteria or around a coffee during the day. People are very easy to approach, regardless of their position. This is something I appreciate a lot here.
4) What is your best memory here?
Hmmmm, I’ll rather quote the latest: a big battle of bullets in the open space between one side the devs and another side marketing. Obviously, and in order to avoid to offend anyone, I won’t say who won 🙂 .
5) And conversely, the worst?
Getting to the client for a deployment in Prod which was supposed to last 3 hours and which in reality lasted 2 days.
6) What have you learnt at SERIAL?
I discovered and learnt many things during the last 4 years; Both on the technical level (architecture, deployment …) and on the human level (customer relations, working methodology). One needs to be curious and talkative with his colleagues.
7) If you had to describe SERIAL in 3 words?
Expertise, conviviality and sharing.
8) Last but not least, what would you say to those who would like to join us?
Firstly, do not forget to bring the croissants for your first day ^^. And secondly, keep the SERIAL balls that you will be receiving as gifts on your first day, they will be very useful to you later …
9) Do you have anything to add?
Denis, the Director of the Geneva Agency, has a preference for the raisin breads. And me for the chocolate croissants ^ ^.
