Julian Hermann - Fullstack Developer


Name: Julian Hermann

Age: 31

Position at parcelLab: Fullstack Developer

Origin: Munich

1. Briefly tell us what your usual working day at parcelLab looks like?

I mainly take care of our clients' email templates, meaning I create them and make sure they look good on both desktop and mobile. This usually involves a lot of testing as well. I do all of this in close consultation with our fantastic TAM team to ensure that the emails are exactly what our clients want and that any issues that arise can be fixed quickly.

2. What does your professional career look like?

Before parcelLab, I studied art history, among other things, and even started a PhD, but at some point this didn't seem to be the right path for me. After a stopover at an innovation agency, I attended a coding bootcamp in Berlin and thus learned the basics of various programming languages. The fact that I found a place at parcelLab so soon after that felt like winning the lottery!

3. What do you like most about parcelLab and your job?

I like the relaxed atmosphere, the flat hierarchies and the constant exchange with great colleagues from all teams.

4. What do you think makes parcelLab unique?

The team spirit: you never feel let down. If I ever get stuck with some problem, someone is immediately there to help me with it. Everyone likes to share their knowledge and ideas with each other on a regular basis. As a result, you never stop learning and have many shared experiences of success.

5. What are the characteristics of the perfect parcelLab applicant?

He/she should be open to new things and bring his/her own ideas. Independence and motivation are our top priorities.

6. How would you describe the working atmosphere at parcelLab? 

Like a big, international family, which fortunately is constantly growing. Of course, sometimes there are disagreements, but then you communicate with each other to sort out the problem. Our joint celebrations and events are always new highlights for me.  

7. What has been your favorite moment at parcelLab so far? And why?

Phew, it's hard to choose. Our big offsite meeting in February, which included our colleagues from London and Paris, was really special. Everyone was thinking and coming up with suggestions on how we can better shape the future of parcelLab. It was a very creative, focused atmosphere. In the evening, of course, we all went out to eat and celebrate together.    

8. What qualities and strengths were you able to gain during your time at parcelLab? 

My time management skills have hopefully gotten even better. I have also been able to learn a lot of new technical knowledge.

9. What challenges have you already had to face during your time at parcelLab and how did you overcome them?

Often you have several important tickets running at the same time that need to be finished on time. But so far we've managed everything together - and we'll certainly continue to do so.

10. What makes Munich so attractive to you?

Munich is my birthplace, so you take some things for granted, like the great public transportation. However, my time in New York made me appreciate a lot of things about Munich - like the fact that you often run into people you know by chance when you're out and about in the city.

11. How would you spend your perfect weekend?

With friends and family at a big outdoor party, playing music together and everyone dancing at the end.

12. What three terms would your colleagues use to describe you? 

Friendly, quiet, sensitive to cold.
