Bob likes to tell something about the team: ‘The team where Software Development and Operations come together is unique within Planon, the emphasis is even stronger on cooperation between different disciplines than in a regular development team. So in addition to the traditional developers and testers, you also work directly with Operations Engineers. Therefore it is important that you can communicate with everyone in the company. The result of the work is often directly visible for the team itself, but also for the many users. Short lines of communication with multiple departments within Planon create a dynamic team that is extremely customer-focused.'
