A frontrunner with work-life balance
Nils had a track record from various start-ups when he decided to join If, and he admits that he shared some biases about working at a Nordic company with more than 8,000 employees.
- I had an idea that being a System Developer at a large company means working in huge environments with old boring technology, Nils says. But I was totally wrong about that. If’s tech community is cutting edge in many areas, not least when it comes to cloud-based solutions.
And over the years, Nils has experienced several benefits of working for a stable and secure employer like If.
- The culture is very helpful, and a good work-life balance is prioritized from the organization, Nils says. I also appreciate the generous investments in courses, trainings, conferences and software. Here at If, I get all the benefits of working at a startup, but at the same time I can take advantage of the strengths of a large company. And if I want to try new tasks and develop some special skills, there are so many different teams within If's tech community that I can join. The opportunities to proceed in the career without changing employer are fantastic.
