Being a teenager in the 90s, with the internet, mobile phones and all sort of exciting new technologies coming up, it was hard not being enthusiastic about Computer Sciences!
After finishing my degree (Computer Science and Networks), I took a detour, working as a consultant, busy with the soft side of IT (writing design documents, requirements, sketching business and IT processes, these sort of things). After a while I realized that I wanted to go back to the core of technology and changed focus towards more technical and code related work.
The real joy in coding for me is creating something out of your brain, and see it come to life – something most programmers would recognize. In addition to the creative thinking and joy of creation, computers follow straightforward logical patterns, what you code is what you get. Refreshing compared to working with humans (Not that I have misanthropic tendencies, but hey, everyone will agree, people can be difficult 😉 ).
I am result-driven, inquisitive, and professional, always curious, and ready to learn new technologies as well as dive deeper in what I already know. I love challenges and new discoveries, which makes my field as a professional really broad. I do not like to fit in a box and am eager to always keep learning! So, java bytecode, deep learning, graph databases, SQL, high level architecture ontologies, web technologies, security, networking, bring it on! 🙂 .
I am one of the owners, Cuurios is my baby. As a child of the first internet bubble, of the Amazon and the Google era, being an entrepreneur has always been one of my deepest dreams. You can see it as an extension of the coder’s creative drive. Thinking out, designing, and developing a visionary product and bring it to market, full control, and total responsibility. Daunting, yet exhilarating!
As owner and lead developer Cuurios gives me the possibility to completely give direction to the work, according to my own ideas, and to where I want to go. It also gives me the freedom of setting my own agenda and being able to work as I wish – probably every thriving programmer dreams about that at some point.
In addition to that, I believe Cuurios does not only hold value for the owners or the employees. We aspire to deliver real values to our customers, always helping them to get the most of their experience with us – not just with our products, but also every level of our communication, every step of us working together. We are very proactive, and we tell it how it is, we can expect no bs from us!
