Work Experience

2014-present

Senior Developer/Consultant

Freelance

January 1st, 2014, I started as a freelancer. One of my main projects has been working for easyHotel Benelux, developing their PMS, online booking engine and reporting systems.

2000-2013

Senior Software Developer/Technical Project Manager

Trilab B.V.

Being one of the founder of this company, Trilab has been a big part of my life. I started out as a developer in 2000, and slowly grew to be a technical project manager of a company with around 15 employees. Our work included projects for big multinationals, small local businesses and an array of in-company developed online services.

1999-2000

Software Developer

V3 Redirect Services

V3 was the first mainstream redirect service. Their goal was to make memorable URLs. V3.com boasted 4 million users at its peak in 2000. It's success was attributed to having a wide variety of short memorable domains including "go.to", "i.am", "come.to" and "start.at". I was part of a team of 4 software developers that engineered and maintained the systems. When V3 was sold to fortunecity.com in 1999, this team became the founders of Trilab BV.

1998-2000

Application Engineer

Casema NV

As an application engineer, our team of 6 was responsible for the entire technical operation of this large Dutch Internet Service Provider. During my time there, I implemented a new NNTP system and was responsible for maintaining it.

1998-2000

Software Engineer

COD International

COD International was the first company I joined after my study in Information Technology. They posted workers with various clients, including ISP's, software builders and governments. I was posted at Casema NV, an ISP, about one week after I joined.

  • I worked with Marc on several projects. he takes time to understand the deeper implications of projects which I always appreciated. If something is a bad idea he is able to explain why exactly and I would accept his judgement. He won't shy away from a hard problem either...

    Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten CEO @ The Next Web
  • Over the past two years I have known Marc as a very knowledgeable technical architect/consultant. Marc's intentions are to not only be a 'supplier' of technical development work, but he also likes to position himself as a technical consultant. This is highly appreciated during periods of critical timelines and the various technical challenges at hand during one of the many projects we have worked on together.
    I personally recommend Marc to everyone who will work with him in the future.

  • have been fortunate to work with Marc and Trilab for 9 years. His technical insight and great team spirit has helped all projects over the past years to succeed with enormous results, ea WSX.com, Jong Zuid and all AXE Unilever campaigns. “Nothing is impossible” seems to be his motto and he kept his promise always. Being part of the team he is the man, on call, 24 /7.
