“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

Bram Elfrink

Job summary/responsibilities

As a data engineer, my responsibility is to make sure that the data infrastructure behaves as it should, and that valuable insights are extracted from data that is generated.

General introduction/background

I live with my family in a town called Boxmeer. In my free time, I like to play games or hang out with my friends, working out (in the gym), reading thriller or fantasy books and playing guitar. Since I really love snowboarding, I make sure to visit the snow at least once year.

Key challenge

Studyportals keeps growing, and this increases the amount of data that needs to be handled. My key challenge is making the infrastructure scalable, so that it works as intended regardless of our growth. I also want to extract meaningful insights from the data that is collected, so that Studyportals can support future students even better.

Favourite Studyportals element/experience

What I like most about Studyportals is the working environment. It is very flexible and there is plenty of room to have some fun. When you come up with a good idea, you are free to pursue it.
