Role: Power Platform Solutions Developer
In this month’s ‘Meet the team’ interview we chat to Jonathan, who is part of our development team, about what a typical day in the life of a Power Platform Developer looks like, and what he most enjoys about working at Bespoke.
What’s a typical day like for you?
Because I work in a different time zone, I just get up in the afternoon, have something to eat, check my emails, and go to work at 4pm, where I have meetings and discuss the process and code requirements till the end of the shift. When I get up early, I normally start my day with breakfast, doing some household chores and take my dogs outside for a walk.
What do you like about working at Bespoke?
I’m so happy that I’m working with great people in a great culture. People here are very approachable and knowledgeable when you need help. They enjoy providing valuable solutions to customers and encourage their employees to improve continuously. Even though we work remotely, every call or meeting is filled with laughter and good times.
