Rasmus Phophon Gyldenløv - Web Developer
The opportunity that every student waits for
Rasmus' story is about his first full-time job after his studies. He explains how he discovered his passion, what the process looked like, and how he felt joining other developers, who in his eyes, looked serious and ambitious.
How did you start in DynamicWeb?
"Back in the day, it was Steffie and Claus who extended the offer. I spotted a web developer position on Jobnet, sent in my CV, and to my surprise, they reached out fast. After the first interview, they welcomed me aboard." Rasmus recalls.
You started after your studies, how did you know what to do?
Rasmus attributed his early success to his mentor. "Back then, I had a very good mentor when I started. He taught me how to consult and learn how to approach it,” he recalls.
Freshly graduated developer
Rasmus' journey in web development began during his studies when he had his own website, sparking his initial excitement for the field. However, he realized that computer science was a broad domain and wanted to find his niche. He revealed, "Once at school, we had a project about e-commerce, and then I realized this is something I want to do.”
How do you feel two years later at DynamicWeb?
"After two months as a Web Developer, I realized that working with customers is my thing. I like to talk and help them," Rasmus says.
He smiles and continues, "DynamicWeb is surprisingly casual, everyone dresses as they feel comfortable. Employees are always nice, managers are helpful, and you can easily reach them. We have events that get people together, making employees relaxed. I think it is very important, it makes working easier."
Daily tasks of Web Developer
From the beginner to a serious developer
"Depends on the day. But I get a feature request from the customer, then I analyse how to approach it. I am not the only one managing the task, the project manager needs to approve it, and then I get the task back. After that, I basically start developing," Rasmus explains.
Rasmus is responsible for daily tasks that include consolidating customer information, maintaining communication with the development team working on the product he's involved with, engaging in pair programming with other web developers, and ensuring the continuous maintenance and upgrades of both the frontend and backend solutions.
His role revolves around maintaining a strong connection between customer needs and the ongoing development and improvement of the product.
What do you do after working hours?
To wrap up our conversation, we asked Rasmus about his interests outside of work. He revealed, "On sunny days, I try to be outside, but of course, I am a programmer, so I socialize through the computer at home with friends, playing some games or talking," he smiles.
