After graduating in Computer Science at the university in Nijmegen, I decided to take a total other direction. Becoming grandmaster, playing in World Cups from Khanty Mansiysk to Las Vegas. Participating many times for the Dutch Olympic team and becoming European champion with them. In 2012 I thought it was a smart move to join Finaps, where I now am happily working for 10 years. It is nice to have a lot of different projects, with a totally different scope and set of problems as well as having colleagues who are all rather unique.

IT has always interested me. I have Bachelor’s degree in Media Studies and a Master’s degree in Information Studies, both of which I’ve acquired at the University of Amsterdam. During this period I became interested in Usability and Human Computer Interaction, which makes me more of a “Social Application Developer”. I joined Finaps early 2012 and since then I’ve worked on a number of different projects for different clients. The professional, yet relaxing atmosphere triggers me to get the most out of myself and my coworkers. I like to create challenging, user friendly applications that serve our client’s needs both functionally and visually.

Software allows us to make meaningful changes to existing processes. Being able to help organizations by developing new apps and kickstarting their IT landscape is what makes it so much fun for so many years. I get challenged on a daily basis by our complex client projects. But when working with smart and capable people, every complex challenge is possible and fun.

After finishing my degree in Computer Science as well as an internship at Nokia Siemens Networks within the UK, I looked to challenge myself in more ways than one. So in the summer of 2013 I moved to the Nederlands to be a part of Finaps. Finaps allows me to combine my knowledge of web technologies and programming within a fun and dynamic environment. Alongside other interesting colleagues who share common interests and are willing to help each other develop, each project and opportunity is a fun challenge that I enjoy being a part of.

“You can only connect the dots looking backwards, not forward”. This saying has permeated my life in very unexpected ways. I arrived in Europe in 2006 with the intention of becoming a Formula 1 car designer. Many dots later, and I now work as a software engineer at Finaps. It was my interests in system design and engineering that sparked my interest in computational systems. So, I can clearly state that I never saw these dots looking forward but understand them now looking backwards.

Ever since high school I was interested in solving (logistical) business problems and searching for the most optimal solution. The choice to go study Econometrics and Operations Research, wasn’t therefore a hard one. I work for Finaps since May 2015 and knew quickly that I am at the right company to deploy my interests and skills. Every client is different and deserves an app that fully meets their expectations. This requires a great empathy with the client and a lot of flexibility from me and my colleagues. I like to face this challenge!

Studying Econometrics, I never thought I would end up at a software company. I joined Finaps in september 2017 and I have enjoyed every day since. I love to solve technical challenges where my knowledge and creativity are tested every day. Collaborating in small teams with different personalities and backgrounds is what drives me to create great software. My main focus is on developing applications that are highly data driven. These applications enable people to make better (business) decisions. Given not only one’s expert knowledge, but all the information that is available in the data, one should be able to improve their decision-making process.

As an intern and having worked part-time at Finaps for over three years, I had the opportunity and privilege to learn what it means to be a good developer. Without much experience to start out with, I’ve tried to learn as much as possible from the great people around me. But this knowledge needs to be put into action for it to mean anything. So, I’m very pleased that in my new role as Software Engineer I can put this into practice and learn even more!

Every day our lives become more convenient as technology becomes more advanced, but we also become more and more dependent on these technologies. I found it frustrating that I did not know how anything really worked. So I decided to do something about it, and turned this frustration into curiosity by enrolling in an intensive full stack web development course. Now I have the opportunity to begin building an amazing new career with Finaps, where I will be able to further develop my skills. There is always time to learn how to do something new.

As someone graduated in theoretical mathematics, I found it difficult to find a job that lets me apply the skills I had learned during my education.

My mentor at university believed that I must have hated myself. I always choose the most challenging projects in the most diverse fields of research. This has made me the allrounder I am today. Moreover, during the process, I’ve developed a passion for information analysis. Using logic to create understanding from complex matters is what appeared to make me happy. This skill is essential for both recognising customers’ business requirements and constructing suitable (IT-) solutions to fit these requirements. I am looking forward to developing and deploying my skills at Finaps and to start working with the team on challenging projects.

Since high school I have been really interested in the big problems in Astronomy and Technology. Because of this I started the bachelor Physics & Astronomy. Besides the basic mathematics and physics courses, I learned about solving problems with multiple programming languages. During my Master I continued with this and started to get really interested in programming and everything related to it. After my master I focused on other sides of programming and found at Finaps what I missed during my study, something more tangible. I found my passion in creating something more Business oriented together with a team.

As a mathematician, I like to solve puzzles and complex problems. During my studies, I obtained a lot of problem-solving skills on abstract mathematical subjects. However, after graduating, I wanted to step out of the mathematical landscape and use my obtained skills on solving business problems.

At Finaps, I learn a lot about developing apps and new technologies and as a Business Engineer, I help solving challenging client problems.

I have been in marketing for several years now. What do I like about Marketing? The funnels and the storytelling. From the Awareness phase to the Advocacy phase. A good funnel only works when the content is authentic and unique. It has to be Inbound. Helping instead of selling. Great storytelling is what it’s all about nowadays. Creating the wow factor followed by proof and showing that you really know what you are talking about. I like writing but I also enjoy producing videos.

During my Bachelor International Business Administration, I discovered my interest in technology and the positive impact it can have on people. Therefore, I chose to continue my academic career with a Master in Digital Business and Innovation. During my Master, I learned about the transformative power of digital technologies and about the role I could personally play in this journey. I became especially interested in low-code software development and how it would allow me to create value for a business, while hands-on solving complex problems in a creative manner. I am a Business Engineer, which allows me to use my skills to build these creative solutions for clients. Combined with the professional atmosphere and driven colleagues, Finaps inspires me to keep innovating!

I started my career in banking, in 2010 the Industry had changed drastically and I believed there was room for new opportunities within. This resulted in the start-up of Finaps in 2010.

Of course, there are challenges every day as in most of companies but all of us will work hard to overcome them together. If we succeed, we celebrate and if we fail, we step back and look at the reasons and start again.
