Jovi De Croock
Full-stack Software Engineer
When growing up I discovered a passion for IT, this grew into me working at a hardware store and eventually into finding my passion for programming. This passion turned me to study computer science, find freelancer assignments and eventually my first job.
Nowadays I find myself enjoying work on both front-end as well as back-end systems. Finding elegant solutions to complex behavior is my favorite challenge. In companies I like to empower people to deliver their best work, a force multiplier for others, be that by working on DX or discovering solutions to problems together.
A second passion that has grown over the years is open-source, I love working in the open and I love collaborating with others to solve common development problems.
