We will do this through our 70-20-10 philosophy: 70% learning on the job, 20% coaching and 10% training. You will be given the opportunity to grow to a (senior) consulting role where you sell, lead and execute projects in order to help clients realize the stated project goals and deliverables. Or you develop yourself as a senior technology expert being seen as an international authority in your working field.
