What do you do at BigMile?
‘I am part of the front-end team together with Michael and Auke. We are making improvements to the user interface of the software. The most important thing we focus on is on how to create even more detailed information on CO2 emissions, by either creating new insights for customers in our product, developing new analyses, such as scenario analyses. Of course we also take care of the maintenance of the application.’
What it it you like about BigMile?
‘I like the colleagues and the atmosphere, that in combination with the social relevance of the work, made me choose to work at BigMile. It is very important to me to work for a company that not only acknowledges the climate change, but also take action on it. If I could contribute in any way to make the world a better place of course I would do it, because it is my generation.’
How often do you go to the office and what’s the first thing you do when you get there?
‘On average, I am at the office 1 or 2 times a week. I usually go on Wednesdays when Michael is there too. I am never the first to arrive. The first thing I do is to get coffee for myself and the people who want it, and I prefer to have a chat.’
If you had to teach someone else something, what would it be?
‘If anyone should ask for my help with something, it would be best to ask for support with mathematics. Thanks to my education I know quite a bit about the subject. At the moment, however, I am mainly focused on my own personal development and I would like to pass on to others that it is important to be engaged with yourself and know what you want to achieve in life’s
What superpower would you like to have?
“I would love to be able to time travel, to learn from the past or the future. I do not need to be there, but I would like to see what it used to be or what the future holds. For example, I would like to know what it looked like in prehistoric times or in the Second World War. Or I would love to see what technology we will use in the future, what the sharing economy or green houses look like.’
