tense question

in the beginning of the text, could you not say, 'Je travaillais pour une organisation internationale'?  it goes on say 'développions' rather than 'nous avons dévelopé...

Hi Jennifer,

It is the difference between -

Nous développions ...= We were developing ( continuing action)

and 

Nous avons développé = We have developed ( finished action)

Hope this helps!
