The future is yours - congratulations to our apprentices!

  • Sara Zbinden

Six apprentices succeed their apprenticeship this summer. Congratulations to Niclas, Rami, Tim, Sina, Sonja and Gian!

They learnt how to code and developed websites and mobile applications using technologies such as PHP, Magento, Angular and OctoberCMS. Our business administration apprentices gained knowledge in various fields like Finance, Human Resources and Administration. All of them developed their communication skills and their self-organising attitude.

We are very proud of them. They are the experts of tomorrow. By taking on apprentices, we are investing in the future of not only young people but also the community and therefore the society.

Get to know them better. They tell you all about their time as a Liipers.

Gian Zgraggen

Developer - Zurich
Motivated, helpful, sarcastic, coffee lover, metal head, nerd.

Tell me about a project or a task that you handled during your apprenticeship and that you liked.

My first client project was Meinplatz.ch, created with OctoberCMS. I really liked working on it since it was the first "real" project I was able to work on. Before working at Liip I was not able to work on any client project.

What do you like most about your job?

I really like working as a developer. I enjoy working as a dev at Liip, because I am able to work together with clients and directly take influence and help shaping a project. I enjoy the structure of the company and the possibilities it offers. The other employees are young, friendly, and easy to talk to, that way the whole atmosphere is way lighter than in other businesses.

What's your best memory with Liip?

Working on my first project for a client as well as both LiipConfs (our annual internal conference) I was able to attend.

What else do you want to learn?

I want to learn different technologies to create websites, increase my skills in mobile development as well as JavaScript. Additionally I would like to learn more about User Experience (UX).

Sonja Nydegger

Business administrator (Finance/Admin) - Fribourg
Happy, motivated, ambitious, helpful, shy, unathletic, sensitive.

Tell me about a project or a task that you handled during your apprenticeship and that you liked.

I liked it very much to get an insight into the hiring process. I was able to document the applications after sending a confirmation of receipt. Handling the various applications not only gave me inspiration for my own application, but also gave me a lot of fun, as we also receive very creative applications. I was able to give my own opinion about each candidate.

What do you like most about your job?

I like the variety of my job. I get insights into the company and can carry very different tasks, which are associated with responsibilities (for example: cash management, applications recording and much more). I am convinced that this is a good apprenticeship and that it will bring a lot of opportunities.

What's your best memory with Liip?

Where to start? I have so many beautiful memories of my time at Liip. I love that all the Liipers are close, which results in a friendly and very nice working atmosphere. I will remember the opportunity I had to write my own blog post ;-) and the chance I had to take over Instagram for a week with other apprentices.

What else do you want to learn?

I would like to deepen my knowledge in the area of finance. I wish to pursue further education as a specialist in finance and accounting.

Sina Marty

Business administrator (Finance/HR/Admin) - Zurich - Ping me
Ambitious, motivated, helpful, funny, cheerful, athletic (gymnastics), impatient.

Tell me about a project or a task that you handled during your apprenticeship and that you liked.

During my three year apprenticeship, I liked the financial area the most. Most of all I liked to create the invoices. It was also exciting to experience the progress of the invoicing process. :-)

What do you like most about your job?

That despite an administrative job there is a lot of variety and contact with internal and external customers and partners.

What's your best memory with Liip?

I have many beautiful memories, but one of my most favorite is my first day at Liip. I was warmly welcomed and was able to work independently very quickly, which I really liked.

What else do you want to learn?

I would like to continue working and starting the vocational baccalaureate (Berufsmaturität) in order to study later.

Tim Keller

Backend & Frontend Developer - Zurich
Eager to learn and discover, sarcastic, keen to debate, social, eloquent, helpful, tech-enthusiast.

Tell me about a project or a task that you handled during your apprenticeship and that you liked.

At the end of the IT apprenticeship, I was able to work on Kochoptik and I was part of a development team which integrated me fully.

What do you like most about your job?

The web development is incredibly varied and, depending on the complexity of the project, infinitely expandable and improvable. There are new challenges and problems every day, which have to be solved.

What's your best memory with Liip?

During every project I got to know and appreciate my colleagues better. I was able to work on exciting projects and get to know a lot of great people at the same time.

What else do you want to learn?

I want to expand my knowledge in backend and frontend development and explore the whole Linux world even better. Later I might want to continue my studies at vocational baccalaureate school (Berufsmaturitätsschule).

Rami Jumaah

Backend Developer - Zurich
Motivated, helpful, funny, happy, fitness lover, impatient, tea lover.

Tell me about a project or a task that you handled during your apprenticeship and that you liked.

A website that I made for my IPA (Graduation Project) for school, because I built everything from scratch - UX till delivering. And every user who is gonna make use of the website have already liked the website.

What do you like most about your job?

The cooperation between the team members.

What's your best memory with Liip?

All the aperos that we have regularly.

What else do you want to learn?

Open for every piece of information that I can get from any person at the company.

Niclas Deplazes

Backend & Frontend Developer - St-Gallen
Patient, focused, eager to learn, hockey fan, hip hop enthusiast, kindle-worm, tea lover.

Tell me about a project or a task that you handled during your apprenticeship and that you liked.

I was able to work on a real customer project, right from the start of my internship. It was the Memberplus Portal of Raiffeisen Bank. I worked on the backend (Magento & PHP) as well as on the frontend (Angular).

What do you like most about your job?

Generally I like my daily work as an application developer because it's very varied and quite a challenge too. Furthermore, I learn something new every day, especially as a beginner. So I never get bored.

What's your best memory with Liip?

The highlight of my internship was the successful go-live of Memberplus, as I spent most of my internship (including my Graduation Project) on the project.

What else do you want to learn?

During my one-year training at Liip, I was able to deepen and expand my basic knowledge from three school years at IMS Frauenfeld. After the military service, I would like to continue working at Liip for a year in order to gain even more practical experience. Afterwards I will probably go to the ZHAW (Zurich University of Applied Sciences) to start a bachelor's degree in computer science.
