Honeypot Developer Careers AMA
Honeypot, the developer job platform, is bringing Reddit-style Ask-me-Anything (AMA) to Amsterdam. The Developer Careers AMA is a chance for software developers to turn the tables and ask questions an expert panel of technical-HR and CTOs about recruitment, careers development and all topics related to worklife.
The evening will begin with an overview of salaries and demand for different programming languages in Berlin, Amsterdam, and London and will proceed to an open Q&A. Our MC for the night will be Jelle Groot, Honeypot's Netherlands Country Manager.
There are limited seats - be sure to reserve your ticket!
Some topics which will be covered:
How can I prepare for a non-technical interview? What kinds of questions should I ask my interviewer?
How much do senior developers earn as a developer in Amsterdam?
How can I negotiate a salary increase?
How can I convince management to sponsor an open source project or try a new language?
What its like to be a CTO? How much coding do you get to do?
If I don't want to be a teamlead, how can I progress within the company?
