Experience & education

Lead software developer – Coolblue

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

As team lead I supported multiple teams to continuously deliver new applications and improvements in complex domains (finance, contract management, logistics), while working in an environment that was constantly changing to keep up with the growth of the company.

Senior software developer – Funda

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

At Funda my team and I took ownership of the full stack: transforming data from a single write model to multiple read models (CQRS), indexing read models in our search engine for high throughput, and building a fully responsive website using a custom-built modular JavaScript framework with reusable components.

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. After becoming team lead in 2015 I started coaching and mentoring the developers in my team.
