Studying Econometrics, I never thought I would end up at a software company. Having finished my bachelors, I decided to take the master Quantitative Finance, which is not directly linked to IT solutions. However, Econometrics and Quantitative Finance in particular is more than ‘just’ portfolio optimization and derivative pricing. It provides a way of finding solutions that no other study provides. I want to use this knowledge to develop analytically driven applications.
I joined Finaps in september 2017 and I have enjoyed every day since. I love to solve technical challenges where my knowledge and creativity are tested every day. Collaborating in small teams with different personalities and backgrounds is what drives me to create great software. As a Data Engineer, my main focus is on developing applications that are highly data-driven. These applications enable people to make better (business) decisions. Given not only one’s expert knowledge, but all the information that is available in the data, one should be able to improve their decision-making process.
