Cloudar believes in teamwork to make the dream work! And every member on our team has an important contribution to make. Today we’re shining the spotlight on Hannelore Bervoets, who works for us as a Cloud & DevOps Engineer in a consultancy role. Here’s what she has to say about working hard and playing hard at Cloudar:
What do you like about working for Cloudar?
The company’s strong and unique identity. It may sound a bit cliché, but for me “work hard, play hard” rings true. True experts in our specific fields, the Cloudar team is always down to “eat, drink and be merry”. Despite the global shift towards working from home, the team remains a cohesive whole. Cloudar sort of resembles a big, impressive puzzle consisting of funky puzzle pieces that somehow fit together perfectly. The importance of personal development and respect for everyone’s unique identity are core values for Cloudar’s management.
What memory or anecdote will stick with you?
Ooh, difficult choice! Driving to the Netherlands to attend a concert with colleagues straight after work, pizza buffets… Or when we were finalizing the details of my employment, and I notified Cloudar that I would be hard to reach for a few days because of the Graspop festival, and they told me that more or less half of Cloudar would be there too. That immediately boosted my eagerness to start working here. When I think about it, a lot of memorable moments have already occurred within a short timeframe, which really speaks to Cloudar’s work culture.
What’s your most important work milestone so far?
I come from a very warm, regular working-class family. Even though it was instilled in me to always try your best and work hard, this didn’t necessarily have to result in particular studies or degrees. Despite that, I did earn a bachelor’s degree and end up working in a field that’s considered a less obvious choice for women. I’ve navigated my own way professionally and don’t always follow the beaten track, and that’s something I take pride in.
