- Programming Raspberry Pi(e)’s
- Resolving security incidents
- Being critical and positive
I am a Hosting Engineer. Which means that I – together with the DevOps and Hosting departments – apply myself to getting and keeping websites online. I studied ‘ICT Networks & Systems Engineering’ at The Hague University of Applied Sciences and specialised in ‘Cyber Security Technology’. Which is a mouthful to be honest.
After my graduation project, I stuck around at Level Level as a Hosting Engineer. I’m the first contact when it comes to problems with the technological infrastructure of the website and the office. Because of my aforementioned specialisation, I also keep an eye on the cyber security within Level Level.
Within cyber security, I am also working on implementing my graduation thesis. Which is a system that warns (system) administrators of suspected hacking attacks and automatically reacts by blocking those hackers. Better safe than sorry, right?
I discovered Level Level at the HBO ICT job event that is held annually in Rotterdam. Level Level appeals to me, because it’s a completely different kind of organisation than let’s say a government institution. In appearance, but also in the type of work we do.
In my spare time I also work a lot with ICT. It is nice if you can turn your hobby into work and help others with it. I especially find the technical side interesting: programming, experimenting with raspberry pie (Raspberry Pi 😉). I also like to play games, especially the lesser known driving simulator Live For Speed. I also have been a member of a scouting association for a couple of years now.
I aim to improve the security of the sites that we host and Level Level as a whole – which also touches our customers. Cyber security has become more important than ever. Loads of sensitive information gets shared through the web on a daily basis, this has to happen securely. In addition, I want customers and colleagues to experience as little issues as possible because of maintenance (or errors) on the technical infrastructure. A slow, or even nonexistent, connection is obviously extremely frustrating! Ultimately, it is my goal to ensure we have quick and secure sites that never go offline!
We are up for any challenge!
