Ramon de la Fuente
Pointy haired boss
I am a programmer with a strong database background. With 14+ years of experience in web development, I've seen technologies come and go - so robust design is always a must. I enjoy the puzzle of a piece of code, and the fact that there's always more solutions to be found for a problem.
I'm also a co-founder of the SweetlakePHP user group, where I enjoy organising the monthly meetings and arranging speakers and sponsors.
Elena de la Fuente
Paper Pusher Extraordinaire
I have been with Future500 since the beginning, taking care of everything non-code. I do this part-time, because it would drive me insane to be in the office 5 days a week. Especially since I'm also married to Ramon. I can't escape him at home.
My tasks include the bookkeeping, invoicing, contract management and keeping the guys focussed on coding (by denying their requests for days off).
Jasper N. Brouwer
Senior Software Developer
Software has inspired me since I was a little kid. It opened up a whole new world which I can influence directly, while it provides me with new things to learn. A place where I really fit. To this day I'm exploring new places, pushing boundaries and letting my creativity run wild.
In 2009 Future500 opened it's doors to me and together we've been pushing each other further. While Future500 allows me to endlessly grow as a professional developer, I dedicate myself to the company, the team and our customers.
Mitchel Verschoof
Software Developer
I came to Future500 straight out of school, three years ago. Back then, I was quite cocky about my abilities but I've grown more humble with every new thing I learn. My passion lies on backend application developement and API design.
I also work on opensource projects (if I can find the time), and I'm co-founder of the SweetlakePHP user group. I'm responsible for building and maintaining the website.
Gerrit "Remi" te Sligte
Software Developer
To keep the dog from distracting the other developers, I am solely responsible for picking up his tennis ball, throw it with a nice angle and calculated distance, and compliment the dog on fetching it correctly. When the dog is asleep, I do some coding.
Mark Meijerman
Software Developer
During my study, I have always been programming in php as a hobby. After finishing my master in transport and logistics, I decided to turn this hobby into my job. I started a php traineeship at Leaseweb where I learned a lot!
After working at Leaseweb for almost a year, I decided to start looking for a job closer to my home, which brought me to Future500. I love to do challenging backend application development.
In my free time, I am a gymnastics coach, and do some programming to improve the automation in the world of gymnastics where this is possible.
