💼 Employment History

Freelance Front End Developer at VodafoneZiggo, Utrecht

June 2018 — June 2020
Vodafone is merging with Ziggo (a dutch TV/Phone/Internet provider) and they needed a new online shop. We've built a complex shopping basket in React and Redux. I was involved in making architectural decisions and helping junior developers in the team. During this time I also developed a keen interest in test-driven development.

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 to support their in-house (but remote) development team. It was great to experience working in a fully remote team with people from all over the world.

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 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 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 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.

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.

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!
