My name is Sander Boogaards, I´m 36 years old and I live in Barneveld. Before I started working at Connecthing, my girlfriend and I took a world trip. In just one year, we explored Spain, Asia and Colombia. Unfortunately, our adventure ended prematurely due to the Corona crisis, but we will definitely go back to Central America one day. I´m a big football fan (Ajax) and we have a cat called Muffin.
I´ll be starting work at Connecthing as a Product Owner, which is the link between the business and development teams. My task is primarily to streamline the process of developing the new platform.
Why did you choose Connecthing?
I love working in an evolving organisation with short lines of communication and where there´s plenty of space for people’s own ideas. During the interviews, I quickly realised that Connecthing meets these demands perfectly and the enthusiasm was contagious. The challenge of building a new platform really appealed to me and so far, I’m really enjoying it. The energy market is a completely new field for me, but in terms of the system, there are many similarities with the temporary employment sector, where I worked previously. Other reasons for choosing Connecthing is the freedom of workplace (there are offices in Apeldoorn and in Breda and I can work from home too) and the option of having a lease car - enough to convince me.
How are you going to make a difference?
I like new challenges and I look forward to applying the knowledge I gained in previous projects at Connecthing too. I enjoy working with the various stakeholders to get us all on the same page and achieve the desired result. And of course I can´t wait for us to deliver the new platform and take the next step towards an even bigger market player.
