Meet Hana, Erasmus+ Trainee at MyFoodOffice
I joined Myfoodoffice in September 2020 as a trainee within my bachelor’s program through Erasmus+. The on-boarding process went very smoothly and I was warmly welcomed as a new member of the company. During the traineenship I had various responsibilities, such as quality assurance testing, reporting and large projects ownership such as finding a management tool for building a website. I enjoyed collaborating with my colleagues and was also given freedom when working individually. Moreover, I was met with on hand support from the team, anytime I needed help. The traineenship with Myfoodoffice is an extremely valuable experience for my future professional career. I would recommend applying if you are knowledge-seeking and want to learn more about software development in a startup environment.
