πŸ’Ό Employment History

Full Stack Web Developer at Lightyear

September 2021 β€” January 2023
Lightyear was building a car that drives on the sun. How cool is that! I was the lead developer on the website, built using React + Remix, integrated with Storyblok CMS and deployed to Cloudflare Pages for a super fast experience.

Freelance Front End Developer at VodafoneZiggo, Utrecht

June 2018 β€” 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 β€” 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 β€” 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

Freelance Full Stack Developer at Rijkswaterstaat, Utrecht

March 2016 β€” 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 β€” 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 β€” 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 β€” 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!
