“I believe the driving force of TMC has always been a great group of people working to achieve the same goal. Making great apps is what makes me happy! Even though it is now almost completely phased out, the ANWB Verkeer app for Android is still the application I am most proud of. It was the first app I created for TMC, and I created 95% of this app all by myself. At its peak, a few hundred thousand people used it. There are even still some people so happy with it that to this day they refuse to uninstall it and use the ANWB Onderweg app, which contains most of the same features plus more. For me the best time on a working day is usually around eleven, because when it's someone's birthday this is often the time when cake is served. When there are no celebrations it's a time where you can just zone out and focus completely on the code you are writing. Win-win!”

“After I joined TMC, I’ve felt more proficient than ever before as I work with people who have the best know-how in the field. On a daily basis, I get to talk to customers – and I love showing them how I can help solve their problems through user-centered and data-driven design. Working with Holacracy, I like that my roles are constantly evolving based on the day-to-day needs of the company and our clients. This makes me flexible, dynamic and always able to deliver apps that make people happy!”
