Aidan Langelaan - Software Engineer


How long have you been working at My Jewellery?

4 months.

What are some of your daily tasks?
My daily tasks include working on various applications that help the business run smoothly. An example would be the Influencer Marketing Tool we set up to manage the collaborations with influencers. We also created a marketplaces application that links our ERP system with various intermediary companies, which will ultimately help in our collaborations with various stores such as Zalando. For this we usually use Python, although we’re slowly making the move towards using .NET, we also often work with the Google Cloud Platform to make the various applications available. We’re always working on expanding our current functionality and improving the app landscape for My Jewellery. 

What are you most proud of?

I implemented the transition to .NET by building the first APIs and also built a CI/CD street for that purpose. The advantages to this include being able to quickly modernise existing processes, both in performance and security which plays a very important role in the current climate. Besides all of that, .NET presents more opportunities for My Jewellery to hire new developers, because having a solid foundation in our .NET application allows us to develop and expand new applications without any issues. 

What do you enjoy most about working for the My Jewellery tech team?

The DEV team has a lot of freedom within My Jewellery. So, we’re able to come up with ideas regarding the development of new processes, but as a team we’re also allowed to make decisions on which techniques to implement to create solutions. Finally, the job is really varied so you’ll never get bored!

Rami Shokir - Software Engineer


How long have you been working at My Jewellery?

1 year

What are some of your daily tasks?

The tech team always works in so-called sprints, so much like in sports, these are certain distances (in our case 2 weeks) in which we set specific targets and try to complete those. The tasks will vary in each sprint, but tend to have these aspects: 

  • Gathering requirements from the business. In other words, we’ll talk with various stakeholders to determine their wishes.
  • Development: which is where we’ll expand and figure out the next steps. 
  • Testing/releasing: which is when we complete the agreed upon functionality.

What are you most proud of?

I’m personally very proud of the Influencer Tool. The Influencer Marketing team uses the tool everyday to manage lots of influencers, so it’s really important and useful. The process of creating it was also really, as there was a lot of initiative and interest from both sides, which makes it fun to work on. 

What do you enjoy most about working for the My Jewellery tech team?

There’s a lot of interaction within the company, which makes it very enjoyable. You’re welcome everywhere, and everyone is willing to listen to your ideas. If you want to, you can help out anywhere, and as a developer I love helping people with software, but it’s all mutual and everyone is willing to help you out just as much, so in short, the company culture at My Jewellery is pretty great!

Patrick Lensen - Front End Developer


How long have you been working at My Jewellery?

Almost 2 years

Can you tell us a little about your daily tasks?

As a front end developer I'm basically in charge of making sure that things look ‘pretty’ and that everything works well and efficiently. We use a range of frameworks like: Vuejs, React, MaterialUI etc. 

What are you most proud of?

The tool we created for Influencer Marketing

What do you enjoy most about working for the My Jewellery tech team?

I think the general atmosphere throughout the entire company is My Jewellery’s biggest weapon. We are like a big family, where everyone is willing to help each other and push each other to new heights, so that we all continue to grow with the company.



Joppe Vos - Data Engineer


How long have you been working at My Jewellery?

3 years. 

Can you tell us a little about your daily tasks?

My main focus is on unlocking new data through Airflow, however, I also advise the other engineers and do code reviews.  

What are you most proud of?

We’re the first layer within the data team, so everything comes to us first, which comes with a certain responsibility to the other teams. This also means that we design the architecture, whilst keeping in mind scaling and high-availability, so the company gets the data it needs on a daily basis.  

What do you enjoy most about working for the tech team at My Jewellery?

You have a problem that needs fixing and it’s up to you to decide how you’re going to accomplish that, that’s an approach that really suits me and My Jewellery can give you that.
