Senior Software Developer

No obstacle is too big for me as a problem solver, and I love finding solutions for things that initially seem impossible. That’s a great trait to have as a Software Developer. I get to think outside the box to better serve our customers. 

What’s your M&I story?

In my current role in the R&D-team, I work for the various web-based applications from M&I.” 

I started working at M&I in 2021 after completing my studies at Utrecht University, where I completed a BSc in Information Science and a Master of Science in Business Informatics. There, my modules included Software Architecture, Business Processes, Process Mining, Pattern Recognition and Data Mining, Business Intelligence and Learning Technology, so I had a strong background across a range of different technical subjects. 

When I joined M&I, I started off working in both the PS and R&D teams, but I quickly started working full time for the R&D team. 

What training do you have?

I studied Information Studies, Business Economics and Business Informatics at Utrecht University. Those three study areas have given me a broad basis in many technical subjects, including security, design and business, so I have a good understanding across all of the areas M&I works in. I also worked as a software engineer during my studies, which allowed me to learn various programming languages and get practical on-the-job experience. 

What do you like best about working at M&I?

Working at M&I allows me to combine two of my hobbies: creating software and working with the media industry.” 

As a developer, I love creating software – both at work and in my free time. I’m also highly interested in the media industry and spend a lot of my free time working on this, too. So, my role at M&I is perfect for me because it’s a crossover of two of my favourite things! 

What do you like doing in your free time?

In my free time, I work for a local radio and TV station (BredaNu) as facility manager and technical producer.
