CULTURE

We don’t just care about making IT better, we also genuinely care about making people’s lives better. We believe that ‘making a life’ is more important than ‘making a living’.

 

We believe that people need a sense of belonging, meaning and find a community of like-minded people. Feeling understood, valued and invested is what makes them thrive, and that’s why we do things, the way we do them: personal, innovative and focused on quality.

 

Ensuring that the right person is matched with the proper organization according to their personality, skills, ambitions and passions. Working with each other instead of for an employer.

 

 

VALUES

We strive to hire the best for attitude and train for skills.

In addition to technical training, we invest in personal and professional wellbeing, personal growth, efficient collaboration, and knowledge sharing in the ttl.be Guild. All share the same purpose: Making ‘IT’ better, and having fun while doing that!

Our values show us who fits in our out-of-the-box Guild of engaged craftswomen and -men, working together in an open community, striving for quality. We want ttl.be to be a real community for all of our employees. When they set foot in the office they should feel a little bit like they’re coming home.

Our vision of a great team is not a cool ping-pong table or having beers together every Friday evening. Our vision of a great team is bringing together like-minded people in a network of teams, sharing a common goal.  

By setting up self-organized task forces with experts as coach, we create freedom and enable investment in growth according to the ambitions of everyone. This way, we keep the back-office small and personal.  

We believe that giving people freedom and trust, together with the proper backing on all levels, will make them do incredible things! 

You get high levels of responsibility, not only at your customer, but also in the self-organized teams that support the growth of ttl.be. Diving into research about a new test automation tool and sharing your findings with the ttl.be Guild or developing further training for ttl.academy, the sky is the limit!

Through our own ttl.academy, you’re always up to date with the latest tools and methodologies, and you get the opportunity to achieve your ISTQB® certificates. Once you know the ropes, we encourage you to share your knowledge and know-how with junior peers.

Next to providing guidance on a professional level, we invest in continuous growth on a personal level as well. We commit to this through personal coaching and wellbeing tracks. We want ttl.be to be an environment where you decide about your own career and life.   

We can sit here and talk for hours about our way of doing things. But the proof is in the eating of the pudding. Are you looking for an open environment without stigma’s, where they believe in working with someone instead of working for someone? Ping us for a chat. Let’s grab a coffee, Fanta, or tea.
