Hi, I'm Joost.
With over 20 years of experience developing and maintaining scalable systems, I help manage software projects and design for change.
Few people know both software development and infrastructures like Joost. He is a systems thinker, innovative, without losing sight of the end goal.
Joost is amongst the best I have met in my field so far. He knows how to drill down to the essence of things in a non-presumptuous and knowledgeable way, while leaving enough room for argumentation. He has an open mind, and is respectful to other opinions.
Joost has the ability to get into complex matter in a very short time frame and become a respected expert. He has the talent of quickly understanding the user’s needs in these matters. He can communicate about it in a very clear and understandable manner, and in addition has the ability to sparkle the stakeholders’ enthusiasm in the process.
I have such an immense respect for Joost, not just because I think he is an incredibly smart person, but because he is humble about his knowledge and very respectful in his way of sharing it. The thing I find most inspiring about him is the fact that he is able to look beyond what people think they can do and encourage them and guide them into doing it.
Joost is a person with a creative mind and a wide area of interests. With his structured approach and impressive technical skillset he has helped our multi team organization to bring our delivery pipeline to the next level. He is also very pleasant to work with and the first one I would think about to hire again for other projects.
