Career growth principles

We aspire to be a context that brings out the best in everyone, suited to personal dreams and ambitions. The text here below describes the professional growth steps we identify and the underlying principles.

(Last updated at 14/12/2021)
Every person and every personality is different.

Therefore we want to tailor your career steps to your talents. At the same time we need to find common denominators to streamline salaries and expectations across our team.

This document highlights our professional evolution principles and it can serve as a conversation starter for our semi-yearly review meetings.

Our delivery values

We expect all Panenco teammates to act according to our core delivery values where product success is our north star.

-1-
Proactivity

We think ahead!

You anticipate on future scenarios and communicate properly

-2-
Craftsmanship

We aspire excellence!

You care deeply about your domain and high-level quality standards

-3-
Ownership

We take pride in delivery!

You don't wait for instructions, you have a natural tendency for action

We want our people to excel in their domain (chapter) while being outstanding team players who value and appreciate their peers, communicate properly and make sure our product portfolio is progressing.

This file is built up with the whole career trajectory in mind from entry level all the way up to domain and operational mastery.

At Panenco we organise two review moments per year (1 in January and 1 in July). There is one salary review moment:

• Ukrainian team: January
• Belgian team: July
• Portuguese team: July

An additional review can only be granted in exceptional circumstances. The review meeting will be attended by:

• Your chapter lead
• Your product manager
• Leadership
• Other key people

The ambition is to have an open, constructive conversation about the road we're travelling together and to receive input from your peers on how you can keep advancing yourself, your skills and your career.

Feedback about this process will always be appreciated. Just like our product portfolio we want to continuously raise the quality bar in everything we produce.
