Communication with the client is great. It is really close, we consider each other as colleagues working together to achieve a common goal, not as a client/service provider.
As one among the first and oldest in the team, I got the privilege to answer some questions and write small testimonial about the work in Personal Programmer. So guys, thank you for the chance to express myself and the opportunity to work in the team that we build together.
How long have you been working for Personal Programmer?
I’ve been in this company for little more than 7 months.
What do you like about your work?
Ever since I joined Personal Programmer there has been a pleasant working environment. The team is constantly growing, but the spirit is only getting stronger. This is something that the owners pay special attention to. The management is not caring only on finding a developer for client in Netherlands, but they care more on finding developer that is positive as a person is a best fit in for the team in Macedonia.
How is communication with the Dutch client?
This is something that depends on both sides – developers and the client. At first I was skeptical about doing things in distance, but since the beginning I was proved wrong. I have daily communication with my client and we have excellent understanding about everything. They accepted me as part of their team and are open for suggestions all the time.
From the communication with the other developers I know that the communication between them and their clients is great, but I’ll leave that to their testimonial.
How do you like the office and atmosphere?
We have two offices which are great and have their own positive sides.
One office is in the center of Skopje and surrounded with lot of places where you can go for the break. Best coffee shops and places to eat are in max 5 min walking distance.
The other office has modern design furniture and is a futuristic space. It is in a quieter surrounding, but again in a close distance to many important facilities.
The strongest side for this office is that it is in 3 min walking distance from my home. This way I save money and time to travel to work. Joke aside, the intention of the management of Personal Programmer is to open offices in the largest parts of the city so the developers can spend as little time to go to and from work.
Even though we have two offices in separate parts of the city, we have the choice to pick where we want to work. This freedom we have only adds on the team-spirit and collaboration between the developers that work for Personal Programmer.
