What do you like about working at Baytek?
I’m proud to have contributed to the development of Baytek over the last 4 years. Baytek went from a small Web company with a designer to become a company with a professional team of designers, developers and programmers. No matter what, I can count on my design team to come up with great concepts, I can also rely on our programmer department to deliver our design properly too, which is not the case everywhere else I’ve worked at. Needless to say that I like the team dynamic and I can’t wait to see where we will be 4 years from now.
