Creetion recruits OutSystems developers around the world

Creetion recruits OutSystems developers around the world. In January, Chris boarded from South Africa. An introduction.

I started my career as a biological scientist and obtained my MSc. degree in human physiology, specialized in in vitro cancer research at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. After changing my direction and gaining some experience in testing software and requirements management for nuclear and civil engineering projects, I found my passion in software development.

I like working with OutSystems because it enables fast, flexible application development while maintaining a high level of control and adaptability. The low-code approach allows the developer to focus on business processes and logic rather than syntax, giving customers more value faster.

OutSystems also has a great community of developers who are always ready to solve practical or conceptual problems. During the 3 years since I started on the OutSystems platform, I have developed applications for the automotive and Fintech industries.

I am fascinated by the clarification, description and design of complex, integrated systems and I believe that advances in information technology and biotechnology will fundamentally change human society in the near future. I want to be part of this change by helping to deliver practical, useful and high-quality applications to our customers.

I think the Netherlands is a beautiful country, full of history and culture. The fact that my ancestors are from the Netherlands (moved to South Africa around 1701) makes the connection with this country even more personal for me. After previously living in Alkmaar for a short period, I returned in January to further broaden my experiences here, and also improve my Dutch.

When I talked to Creetion’s staff about taking a job here, I immediately recognized the fact that they shared my passion for doing things right. Add to that the company’s diverse customer and project base, the opportunity for personal growth and learning from more experienced developers from different backgrounds, and I had to accept the job.
