What is different about working at Basler & Hofmann?
Basler & Hofmann takes a long-term approach. Just like in a startup company, this environment enables me to build up the services of tomorrow today.
What do you find makes a project particularly enjoyable?
I particularly enjoy projects in which I fully understand the central issue and can find simple solutions by keeping off the beaten track.
