Michael Bom

Lead Developer

“I gained trust of both management as my team to take on this leadership position”

Freedom and trust to be manager. Michael got it.

With more than 14 years of experience as a developer, Michael was ready for the next step—a step he could take at ABF.

As a manager, he is now responsible for ABF’s development team. He immediately felt that ABF offered plenty of opportunities to do things your own way, and that was a challenge he was more than willing to take on. 

"When developers proactively make suggestions for improvement, I'm very proud."

Michael Bom - Manager Development

Recruiting of good developers

When Michael started, we had a team of 2 developers, but that has since grown to 8 developers and a tester. Together, we look every day at how we can make things better for our customers and colleagues.

Recruiting good developers has always been a challenge, but we work with new technologies, which makes it attractive for developers to start working at ABF.”

 

A nice trend

“It’s important to also understand why we do certain things and to what goal it contributes. Together with the team, we make a good estimate and plan, where everyone’s contribution is essential.

There is a functional hierarchy in the organization, but the input from everyone is just as important and is actually acted upon. Within ABF, we always ensure that our knowledge is up-to-date, and you are fully facilitated in that. For instance, I regularly attend conferences, like the recent one in Kopenhagen, and ABF makes that possible as long as you initiate it yourself.

It also says a lot that people who have left ABF come back, a nice trend that gives me the confirmation that I am in the best place.”
