My usual online nickname is nvie, hence the name of this blog.
I'm located in The Netherlands, but have worked as a remote engineer since early 2012. I currently work at Simple Contacts as a staff engineer. I've previously been the CTO of GitPrime, and have worked for Parse.ly in New York as a full-stack engineer, and for YesGraph as their tech lead.
My passion lies in building beautiful (web-based) products, from idea inception to shipping the final product. I care about the full stack, doing anything from data modeling, system architecture, tool building, back-end and front-end work.
I have a master's degree in Computer Science from Radboud University in Nijmegen, NL. Basically, I'm a tech enthusiast who breathes code and loves creating beautiful software. I'm an active contributor to open source projects and maintain a few of my own.
