An interview with Jef, Spatie’s account manager

My colleague Jef, who handles accounts at Spatie, recently was interviewed by Viraj Khatavkar. Read it to learn some interesting tidbits on how our company is being run.

Originally, Spatie was founded 12 years ago by Willem Van Bockstal as a one-person company. In 2009 both Freek and I jumped on board, and we founded the official company Spatie as it is known today.

You can always mention your hourly rate, but that’s just a number. What can you achieve in an hour? We try to be very transparent and pragmatic towards our customers. This approach creates trust and avoids lengthy discussions about change requests.

Freek Van der Herten is a partner and developer at Spatie, an Antwerp based company that specializes in creating web apps with Laravel. After hours he writes about modern PHP and Laravel on this blog. When not coding he’s probably rehearsing with his kraut rock band. He loves waffles and butterflies.
