A first-hand experience of Nmbrs’ exchange programme in Lisbon
Thijmen Alkema, Product Owner (PO) for three squads at Nmbrs’ Amsterdam office, recently spent four months living and working in Lisbon on a Nmbrs exchange programme. The programme has been specially created for eligible full time employees and it is aimed at improving the lines of communication between the Amsterdam and Lisbon offices. Here, Thijmen explains why he jumped at the opportunity to do the exchange, what he expected from the experience and his main take-aways. He even throws in a few do’s and don’ts for anyone considering following his example, which he strongly recommends by the way.
