You love writing excellent software. You want to be proud of your work. You are eager to learn, communicative, and dedicated. You want to be one of the best software developers in the world. You want to learn a lot, and you want to share your knowledge with others. You have a passion for software development in all its aspects. You want to use this passion to make the world a better place, by delivering well-crafted, best-in-class products together with our clients, learn with them and teach them. You want to improve the way how the world develops software. You want to be a Nelkinda Software Crafter!
