💼 Employment History

Full Stack Developer at Twente Academy, Enschede

2012 — 2013
A small business, run by the university, that provides tutoring to high school students. I worked on their custom management software in PHP/Zend Framework. This was my first programming gig!

Front End Developer at Wirelab - Digital Agency, Amsterdam

2013 — 2014
At this digital agency is where I unknowingly started specializing in front end development. I mostly used vanilla HTML and CSS.

Freelance Front End Developer at CHUNK - Digital Agency, Amsterdam

2015 — 2019
From this point onward I have been working as a freelance developer. At this digital agency I further developed my specialization in front end development using mostly HTML, LESS and SASS and good old jQuery. Various small projects over the course of 4 years.

Freelance Full Stack Developer at Rijkswaterstaat, Utrecht

March 2016 — May 2016
For the ministry of infrastructure and water management I developed a user interface for one of their database utilities used in construction. This was my first job using (at the time) a modern web framework: AngularJS. In the backend I used Neo4j, as their datamodel represented a graph.

Freelance Front End Developer at Vodafone, Amsterdam

November 2016 — April 2017 At Vodafone I've worked in their online shop team for a while, squashing bugs, developing new features and making some architectural changes to the codebase. Using mostly HTML/CSS, Grunt, LESS and SASS.

Freelance Front End Developer at Deutsche Glasfaser, Hilversum

September 2017 — December 2017 At this small telecom company from Germany I redesigned and developed their Smart TV/Android/iPhone App for watching TV over internet. They were using Google Closure for the app, and so did I.

Freelance Front End Developer at Ticombo, Remote

August 2017 — December 2017 Ticombo is a ticket-marketplace startup. Their app is built using Angular (4+), and I worked here for a while until I realized I really want to use React! It was great to experience working in a fully remote team with people from all over the world.

Freelance Front End Developer at VodafoneZiggo, Utrecht

June 2018 — Present
After dabbling in React with personal projects for a while I got my first professional React gig! Vodafone is merging with Ziggo (a dutch TV/Phone/Internet provider) and they need a new online shop. In a team of 3 front end developers (and some designers, QA engineers, product owners, etc.) we've built a complex shopping basket in React and Redux. I took on a senior/lead role, making a lot of early architectural decisions and tutoring some of the more junior developers in the team and other teams.

💯 My favourite stack

  • React (+ Gatsby) with Styled Components
  • AWS Lambda (using nodejs with Netlify functions) + GraphQL using Apollo Server.
  • Prisma Cloud as a database

🤓 Extra

I used to do some illustrating. I briefly ran a t-shirt company at some point. Check out the link to my illustrations!
