Welcome back, Marciano!

Hi! Welcome back to Simacan, can you tell us something about yourself?
Yes of course, I am Marciano, 28 years old and live in Amersfoort with my girlfriend. I've worked at Simacan before, I've been away for a year and now I'm back again. My job now is Scala Software Engineer, and in the past I have also done a lot in React.
I like reading a lot, every now and then I like to play games (especially fighting games). I am a fan of documentaries that give me a new perspective and occasionally I skateboard. I'm interested in people and what keeps them occupied, so recently I started a part-time study Spiritual Care, so on Tuesday afternoon I'm in school!

It's been a while, when was the first time working here? And how is it being back?
I worked here from 2016 until 2019, and now I'm back! My first week was very quiet, I got to know the teams and the people. The feeling I had the first time starting working for Simacan,  repeated this time: a good atmosphere, nice colleagues and good conversations.

Where did working life start for you?
I studied Software Engineering at the HVA, after finishing my education I started working as a Java developer in Amsterdam. After a year I started a game company together with a friend of mine. We developed our own games, and did this fulltime for about 2 years and then I started looking for a regular job. I had a job interview at Simacan and right away, from the first interview, it felt good. The atmosphere was very nice and real attention was paid to me as a person.

Can you tell us what your job will entail? Will things change a lot for you now compared to your previous Simacan employment?
Previously I worked at Simacan as a React front-end developer, this time it will be different. This time I will focus more on Scala. I'm in the team that works a lot on the "services", it's a bit out of my comfort zone, but I think this is a good choice for my growth and I find it very interesting. So my work will be very different than before, but I'm definitely looking forward to it!
