Introductory interview with Natalie

At makandra we're welcoming 2 to 3 new colleagues per year. We'll publish short introduction interviews like this one with Natalie, who joined our development team this year.

Introduce Yourself

I am Natalie Krehan, living in Augsburg. Before joining makandra, I studied computer science with multimedia and besides my study worked as working student in the project management of an IT company.

How did you first learn about makandra and what drew you to makandra originally?

Searching for an IT company where I can learn all skills and knowledge to become a professionell developer, I discovered a job opening for makandra's trainee and I thought "that would be perfect". I turned on my heels and walked to the next computer to write my application and voila - now I am here! :)

What is your role at makandra?

In 2016 I have finished the trainee programm and wrote my bachelor dissertation at makandra. Now in 2017 I am joining the team as a developer.

What are 3 words to describe makandra?

  • expertise
  • passion
  • reliability

What challenges are you looking forward at makandra?

Honestly I can't tell what challenges I will face at makandra. I am new to the developer working life and I coudn't possible imagine all challenges waiting for me. But I am really excited to meet and master all of them!

Are you messy or organized?

Some kind of organized mess from my point of view.

Best vacation you've been to?

I can not really descripe the destination of our vacation trip, but I can describe the feeling I had. I loved those trips most, where we just jumped in our old lovely VW bus and just kept driving until we reached a spot we liked and stayed. On those trips we see a lot of cute little cities and gorgeous secret spots on deserted beaches or in mysterious pine forests. And if we fellt like moving on….we just hoped on our bus and were back on the road again…

Do you have a favorite quote?

My favorite quote is from Socrates: "Someone who believes being somebody has just stopped becoming somebody."
