We are really happy to welcome Jeroen Hoste in our team. For the last 1,5 year he worked as a mobile developer at Bazookas. As an Android developer he will join team Red Shift at In The Pocket.


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

The biggest factor would be the enthusiasm I felt during the job interviews, if I can call them that because I wasn't really considering taking the job at first. Everyone sounded motivated and excited, and a quick look around the office seemed to give off a comfortable vibe. Not something I was expecting in a large company like this. Apart from that I'm really looking forward to learning a lot & expanding my skillset. Hoping the new environment, new experiences... can make me grow both as a developer and a person.

What is your background?

Trial and error, mostly. I started off studying maths because it was my greatest strength in school, but turned out the theoretical side wasn't for me, so I drifted off towards Computer Science at UGent - carefully, as I had no experience in this, but it seemed interesting - which was still too theoretical, and finally ended up in the more practical course at HoGent.

Things we all wanna know about Jeroen

  • 🐱 or 🐶 person? 🐱
  • Favorite ⚽ team? <blank>
  • Pizza Hawaï or not to Pizza Hawaï? Hawaï anything!
  • Hobbies or passions you would like to share? Not at the moment, I used to be an avid gamer but decided to abandon that a couple of months ago and spend more time doing other stuff, but currently there's no one thing that takes up a lot of my free time.
