About Tom

Tom is Senior Python Developer & Development Operator at ABOUT YOU. He likes gutes Essen, offene Menschen und ästhetische Dinge.

PREVIOUS ACTIVITY: AOL (at the early life of the internet), software company, which integrated SAP-Systems with shops.

TO ME, ABOUT YOU IS: Chaotic-creative, fresh, fun.

Tom started working for ABOUT YOU when everything really got going – that was in May 2014. At the beginning, he managed Oarth-Systems  (Apps), then went on to work for the Payment Order Processing Team (Checkout) and is now part of our new Checkout Team, developing Oarth-Systems  on the one hand and working as a development operator on the other hand. He likes working at ABOUT YOU because the agile environment gets rid of rigid ways of thinking and approaches, granting plenty of room for new ideas. According to him, the working climate is young and dynamic – a place where problems are pragmatically solved, without interference of complicated processes. Team dinners are a steady highlight for Tom – it has a positive effect on various aspects of the team, such as atmosphere, productivity and dynamics. “In our team, everybody can rely on one another – we stick together.”

Tom’s message to developers: “If you like developing, this place provides a good environment, granting you a lot of freedom. You have the opportunity to put forward your own ideas and can personally grow.”
