Meet Hugo

What’s that? The sound of a new colleague entering the stage… Say hi to Hugo! This 28-year-old boardgame fanatic, joined Appsolutely in March as a Salesforce-consultant. Let’s hear more. 

Hi Hugo, welcome! Can you introduce yourself to us?

Sure! I’m 28 years old, I’m originally from a place called IJsselstein, but I’ve lived in Utrecht for the last 10 years or so. I came there to enter university and I had a great time living the student life. Some of the friends I made there, I still see regularly. 

Sounds fun! Do you have any major hobbies you like to practice?

I’m a huge fan of playing board games. Me and my friends have a game night almost every weekend. It’s lots of fun, we have some beers and get quite competitive. 

Are you just as competitive on the work floor? What kind of co-worker are you?

I’m very direct, I say what I think. Besides that, I really like socializing with my colleagues. Friends would say I’m a bit wacky, I appreciate a “good” sense of humor. It’s great that Appsolutely has a relatively small team, so there’s lot’s interaction with co-workers. That’s something I really enjoy! 

You’ve had some work experience before. How did you get in touch with Appsolutely?

At my last job I also worked in Salesforce. After working there for two years, I decided that I was ready for a new challenge. I wanted to focus more on developing, not just consultancy. About that time a recruiter for Appsolutely approached me. It was a really good match and in March, I had my first day.

First days are always exciting. How did you experience your ‘debut’ at Appsolutely?

It was a bit of a ‘culture shock’, but in a positive sense. I used to work in a big company with thousands of employees. Appsolutely has a smaller team and the ambiance is a lot less formal. My first day consisted of a lot of introductions and getting to know my new colleagues.  Off to a good start, I’d say! 

Absolutely! And do you have any aims in mind for your new job? 

Well, first of all, I want to get up to speed with the latest gadgets and tools available. And I want to focus mostly on product development instead of customer implementations. And of course, overall, I’m looking forward to having a great time as a member of team Appsolutely!
