Curious as to what goes on behind the scenes at the IT Development department of one the largest e-commerce companies of the Benelux?
Wonder no more, because we'd love to have you over at one of our Behind the Scenes events!
During these events our developers will share with you their work, insights and lessons learned. Afterwards, there's a tour of our office and we wouldn't be Coolblue if we didn't wrap up with a few drinks at our own in-office bar.
Sounds good? Simply sign up for updates on future events and you'll be the first to know when the next one is coming up!
Below you'll find our previous events, just to give you an idea of what we've been up to. Don't worry, there's always a new event right around the corner. Just sign up so you don't miss out!
