We are really proud to welcome Toon De Pauw in our team! As a recently graduated Full Stack Developer at Odissee, he’s ready to take on this new challenge at In The Pocket. In her first week at our office, we asked him a couple of questions.

Why are you motivated to join the In The Pocket team? 

Even before I applied for the job I heard a lot of good things about the company culture at ITP. After reading about the projects ITP is involved with I’m really looking forward to be part of such a young and dynamic company. 



Why did you made the choice to become a Full Stack Developer?

I have a broad range of interests when it comes to technologies. I can be equally excited about a cool new database system as well as the newest front-end framework. I'm also very interested in the overall architectures of modern web applications and how all the pieces of such a system fit together. Those kinds of interests and challenges have led me to become a full stack developer. 



Things we all wanna know about Toon

  • 🐱 or 🐶 person? I’m the proud owner of a cat called captain Nelson. Or Nelson is the proud owner of me,… I’m not still not sure. 
  • Favorite ⚽ team? I'm not really into soccer except for the times I feel patriotic 🇧🇪👹.
  • Pizza Hawaï or not to Pizza Hawaï? It’s not my first choice but I'll eat it when I'm hungry. 
  • Hobbies or passions you would like to share? In my spare time I like to tinker with electronics to create silly personal projects. Besides that I love music, traveling, cooking... Oh, and I'm a space nerd.

Come work at In The Pocket!
