Business Development

Commercial Director

Maarten Boot

“My definition of commercial effectiveness is the whole of personality, curiosity and integrity and showing a genuine interest in each other.”

My role is to support customer success for our present- and future customers to achieve their goals. Key responsibilities are to make sure we onboard customers ‘first time right’ and stand by our relations to advise how ‘best’ looks like and act accordingly. In my spare time, I enjoy various sports (indoor and outdoor activities) like tennis, walking, fitness. I value excellent espresso or ristretto and, as ultimate relaxation, preparing Italian specialities for family & friends. Buon appetito! 

Engineering

Engineering Lead

Bart van den Berg

“You learn something new everyday if you pay attention.”

In mijn rol als ‘Engineering Lead’ bepaal ik samen met een team van professionals de technische richting en toekomst van het platform en de daaromheen hangende processen. Ik ben voortdurend bezig om te kijken hoe we bestaande functionaliteit kunnen verbeteren en opschalen, en nieuwe toffe functies kunnen toevoegen aan ons platform! In mijn vrije tijd steek ik graag de barbecue aan met vrienden en vind je mij vaak in de bioscoop of op een terrasje!

Backend Developer

Dave van den Berg

“A son asked his father (a programmer) why the sun rises in the east, and sets in the west. His response? It works, don’t touch!”

In mijn rol als backend developer hou ik mij bezig met het bedenken en ontwikkelen van nieuwe functionaliteiten, waarmee gebruikers makkelijker consent kunnen verzamelen. Daarnaast optimaliseer ik bestaande functionaliteiten en werk ik aan integraties met het platform. Ik ben altijd op zoek naar nieuwe slimme technologieën om te gebruiken binnen Optinsight. In mijn vrije tijd vind ik het leuk om te gamen met vrienden en ga ik graag op vakantie.

Backend Developer

Paco Stoelman

“Algorithm: Word used by programmers when they don’t want to explain what they did.”

Sinds de start van Opt-insight hou ik mij in mijn rol als backend developer bezig met het bedenken en ontwikkelen van nieuwe software oplossingen binnen het platform, waarmee gebruikers makkelijker consent kunnen verzamelen en beheren. In mijn vrije tijd ga ik graag met mijn hond Jara naar het bos, daarnaast hou ik van koken en uitgebreid tafelen. 

UX Design

Ariella Reinders

“Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent”

Ik heb 8 jaar in Engeland gewoond en heb daar onder andere als web en graphic designer gewerkt. Mijn zoektocht naar de “waarom” in het ontwerpen heeft me naar de wereld van UX gebracht en sindsdien wil ik niets anders meer. Ik vind het belangrijk om altijd te blijven leren en nieuwe methodes te ontdekken om onze processen beter en (nog) meer gebruiksvriendelijk te maken!

Product

Product Director

Erik Luttink

“Be critical, never stop asking questions!”

Erik Luttik has a long career in the pharmaceutical industry. Since 1982 he worked for Gist-brocades, Searle, Boehringer-Ingelheim and Chiesi. He was also involved in two, very successful partnerships with Pfizer and Lilly. He started his career as an international market researcher, worked as strategy manager and then moved to marketing as a product manager (Gist-brocades). After having worked as marketing (& sales) manager (Searle), he joined Boehringer-Ingelheim as Business Unit Manager Specialty care. His next step was Marketing Director, which he combined with Head of Commercial Operation (Netherlands and MIDI). In these last roles, Erik was , amongst other things, responsible for the digital transformation process, involving knowledge building, implementing the right tools and techniques and most important of all coaching the people involved into the right direction. The challenge was to make people realize, that by adding another (digital) channel in the right way, their efforts and investments were more effective. In his free time, Erik likes to cycle (MTB and race bike), to spend time on the water in his “sloep” and to work in the garden.
