How did you find out about VIBES?
I met Maarten van der Kooij on LinkedIn and after a short talk it was clear to me that for me VIBES was a perfect match. I have a passion for technology and engineering, so working with the technology developed at VIBES suits me very well. And after working here for 6 weeks it is everything I hoped for!
What is your background and education?
My education path started at the MTS (microcontrollers and embedded software). Still hungry for more knowledge I decided to study at the HTS. After finishing the HTS I started my working career in embedded software and electronics. Two years later I started the MSc. course Computer Science (specialty Computer Graphics) in my evening hours at the TU Delft.
I worked for TNO as a Scientific Software Engineer, doing research to improve the safety of our soldiers and working at several EU-funded projects for counter terrorism software models. At TNO I could use my knowledge obtained from the TU-Delft Computer Graphics courses very well.
After that, I joined Baker Hughes, an oil service provider as software engineer. I worked on a subsurface modeling software, which is a very large and complex piece of software for modeling earth layers and well planning. Later on I was asked to become a Product Owner which gave me the functional leadership for a part of the software.
Six years later I decided that I missed my passion for software development so much that I wanted to be a software developer again… and here I am at VIBES!
