What do our colleagues say?

Bo - Jr. Front End Web Developer

When I finished my studies at CMD Den Bosch I was looking for a job in web development. I didn't really have any experience yet in the work field. At Solarplaza I started as a Junior frontend developer. I got a lot of help and guidance at the beginning which was really nice, and later I got the opportunity to create my own projects like UX research and re-designing important parts of our website. There is also space for personal development and growth.

Daniëlle - Graphic Designer

When I started at Solarplaza as a Graphic designer, I got the opportunity to enhance my skills and see my work on the biggest screen I could ever imagine. The appreciation from your colleagues and the welcoming atmosphere make this the perfect place to start as a designer. A big plus! Don't hesitate to send in your job application since this is an opportunity you don't want to miss.
