Experience & education

Lead software developer

Coolblue is the fastest growing e-commerce company in The Netherlands and Belgium.

As team lead I am proud of my teams, because they continuously deliver applications and improvements in highly complex domains (payments, finance operations, and contract management), while working in an environment that is constantly subject to change.

Senior software developer

Funda is the leading real estate website in The Netherlands with over 20M monthly visits.

To improve maintainability I organised ‘domain discovery’ sessions with my team, initiated work on a set of coding standards, participated in regular cross-team reviews of our coding practices, and contributed to our internal build tooling.

Senior web developer

Creative full-service marketing and advertising agency.

At NoSuchCompany I estimated, documented, developed and deployed online campaigns, websites, and portals for small, medium and enterprise accounts like Shell, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Nationale-Nederlanden, and Adyen.

Web developer

Full-service marketing and communications agency.

At Elan I maintained a digital asset management system developed in-house, provided technical support for database publishing projects, and developed, deployed and maintained corporate websites.

Graduated in 2007 from the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences with a Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology, specifically media technology, with a specific and very practically applied focus on database publishing for web and print media.
