Experience

BlueConic (apr 2020 - now)

Position: Developer

BlueConic is a CDP (Customer Data Platform). It enables companies to collect data from users which for example visit their website (or other systems), for the purpose of creating profiles of these users. These profiles are used for analysis purposes and for targeted marketing campaigns.
The profiles are stored in a Cassandra database and indexed through Solr to make searching through very fast. The data can be accessed through a REST API and a Web UI. Through a plugin mechanism integrations with other systems can be made. Everything runs within an AWS cloud. I worked on the backend side of the platform, which is made with Java 8 and uses OSGI.

Philips Healthcare (oct 2019 - apr 2020)

(on consultancy basis through Alten)

Position: Developer

Within in Business Unit IGT i worked on a cloud solution for sharing information, like images and other images, from clinical trials of medical imaging systems that are used during medical procedres. These images and files can be viewed with specific clinical (medical) applications. The solution runs in a AWS cloud environment together with the clinical applications and it consists on the backend site of a number of microservices. These microservices, written in Python, take care of getting the data from the different imaging systems and store them in a S3 bucket. There is also a web UI, created with React, to make it possible for a user to upload images and/or files themselves.

I worked both on the backend and frontend (implemented functionality like authentication/authorisation, upload functionality)

Applications & tools Languages/APIs/Frameworks
Git, Docker, AWS, Cloud Foundry Python 3.6, React, Typescript

Wärtsilä (mar 2018 - oct 2019)

(on consultancy basis through Alten)

Position: Developer

Expert Insight is a product within Wärtsilä which enables customers and engine experts to have insights in the state of their assets (ships engines and other rolling equipment of a ship) and predicts if maintenance is necessary. This should make planning and execution of maintenance easier and more cost-effective.

The product consists of a data pipeline that collects sensor data from a ship's engine. This data is then fed into a neural network which will detect possible anomalies. These anomalies are then shown in a UI in which the customer can create a case out of it. Engine experts within Wärtsilä can look at those cases and their feedback is sent back to the customer but also used as input to train the neural network.

The data pipeline consists of a number of docker based microservices which are partly developed in Java (data collection) and Python (neural network) Kafka is used for communication between the microservices and is also used for storing the raw sensor data from different data sources. The whole pipeline runs in Kubernetes in an AWS cloud environment.

I worked on the development of the data collection part and i was also involved in architectual and design decisions.

CCV Holland BV (aug 2013 - dec 2014)

(on consultancy basis via Alten)

Position: Developer

CCV makes payment terminals for credit and debit cards which are used in shops and parking garages. I was involved in the development of a new payment terminal platform. This platform will support contactless payments and will be first rolled out in parking garages. The contactless cards contain a RFID chip and make it possible to pay without physically putting the card in a terminal.

The platform is based on a modified Linux kernel and a base C layer which implements low level features like security. On top of that a C# application running on Mono which implement the actual payment flow according to a standard protocol which is called CTAP.

I worked as a developer on the C# application but I also helped with testing and supported the build process by writing some Bash scripts for the build server. I was also partly involved with the design and architecture of components. An example of this is a component to retrieve version and other configuration data from a terminal.

(on consultancy basis via Alten)

Position: Developer/Team coach

The New Panel Product is a set of devices (levers, touch screen displays and indicators) and accompanying embedded software. These devices are used and built in on the bridge of a ship and it enables the captain to control the propulsion of a ship. The communication with the propulsion systems (engines, propellors) goes over a number of CAN busses and CANOpen is used as the protocol.

I worked on a application which enables a service engineer to remotely:

  • Upload new firmware to device, through TCP/IP.
  • Monitor and configure a device, directly over the CAN bus.

As a developer I was responsible for the design and architecture of the backend as well as the frontend. The application was created with C# and WPF and was designed with a plugin architecture in mind (by using the Prism framework) As a team coach I set up the development process according to Scrum/Agile and supported other developers by sharing knowledge on technical and non-technical subjects.

Qualcomm Enterprise Services (feb 2012 - jun 2012)

(on consultancy basis via Alten)

Position: Developer

TrailerTracs is part of a hardware and software system that is used for fleet management. It collects data from trailers and trucks, especially temperature data, because this is mainly used in cooled trucks that transport perishable goods. The data is then stored in Omni Express which is basically a black box in the truck. This black box will then send its data to a central server which is used to monitor the truck and the driver.

In more detail TrailerTracs is a device based on a PIC processor that collects temperature data from external temperature sensors which are mounted in the truck and/or trailer. As a developer I implemented a driver in C for two types of temperature sensors. Part of this was also building support for these temperature sensors in the TrailerTracs simulator (written in C++).

UMC Sint Radboud (mei 2010 - jul 2010)

(on consultancy basis via Logica)

Position: Developer

At the UMC St Radboud hospital an in-house developed system is used for the registration and planning of administering medication to a patient, called the MEPD (Medicatie Electronisch Patientendossier, can be translated as Electronic Patient Medication System) On the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) a system called ICIP is used which does the actual administering of medication, so there was a need to integrate these systems. The challenge here was difference in data formats between the two systems, MEPD works with HL7 version 3 and ICIP works with HL7 version 2 (HL7 is a medical communication standard, see http:/www/hl7.org)

As a developer I did the fundamental design and also partly the implementation of a generic message framework that the rest of the development team could use to implement the integration between the two systems. This messaging framework was eventually used for other similar projects within the hospital.
