Neels - Day in the Life

Neels - Head of Product Delivery – K8 Trader (Cape Town, South Africa)

Please describe your typical day

I normally start my day off with a nice coffee, followed by a daily stand-up meeting with the DEV Q&A and Product team every morning. Afterwards, I tend to emails. This is followed by some more caffeine inspiration, checking sprints on Jira and Confluence, and then a nice lunchtime walk.

I enjoy the scenic views here at Techno Park in Stellenbosch. It really helps to clear your head before you get back to the buzz of the dev office.

A world of opportunities awaits once you’re part of the Kerridge family. There are many growth opportunities.
