TOPdesk Delft (Netherlands) isn't hiring right now. Check out all TOPdesk jobs
I have been working at TOPdesk full-time (More than 10 years)
The most striking thing to me, is that the people here really want to help you be happy at your job and develop as a professional. I switched jobs quite a few time within the organization, and every step of the way I felt supported by my manager and HR colleagues to discover what's the best next step for me. That, in combination with a culture that says it's ok to fail, makes it a great learning environment for me.
The flat org structure sometimes resulted in a slow decision-making process, but this has improved over the past few years.
Advice to Management
Try and keep a growth rate that allows you to maintain the culture we have.
I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at TOPdesk (Delft (Netherlands)) in November 2015.
TOPdesk contacted me via Stack Overflow after looking at my answers there. They invited me for an informal introduction that included talks with several developers and the person from HR. The visit was rounded off by a tour of the development department and a very nice lunch.
The next meeting was with the head of the development department and one of the team leaders. We talked about TOPdesk and the people that they are looking for, as well as my experience and what type of work I was searching for. A small programming case was also included.
The final meeting was with two team leaders (of the development department). This time I had received a Java project that we discussed (main focus was on architecture, code style, and maintainability) during the interview. We also talked more about TOPdesk and about my background & experience.
The entire interview process took 5 weeks, including the informal introduction. The official part (2 interviews and offer) took a bit more than 2 weeks.
