Full Stack Engineer at KPN
December 7, 2022, Nathan worked with Ben on the same team
It was an absolute pleasure working together with Ben at KPN. His knowledge and technical expertise often lead to new insights and fresh solutions. I admire his ability to really get invested in subjects, soak up information fast and share all useful knowledge in an understandable manner with the team. You were a great addition to the team and I hope to work with you again in the future.

March 23, 2020, J. David managed Ben directly
Ben is an excellent developer. He has the technical skills to quickly become productive when working in large, unfamiliar code bases. In addition to his development skills, he can make valuable contributions to product planning and processes. I would happily work with Ben on my next project.
Senior Managing Partner at Oxyor Group
January 3, 2018, Simon was a client of Ben’s
Ben's recommendations and solutions saved us a tremendous amount of time and money by showing us how we could reuse parts of our existing stack and helping us set up the scaling we needed. Ben also trained and guided our team to make sure that people were comfortable supporting the application before he finished the project. Ben listened to our needs, developed a plan and executed it; consistently delivering high quality work.
Ben is capable of working independently and coming up with suggestions and alternative ideas that have been a major driver for our developments.
Front-end Developer at NonDutch
April 20, 2017, Ben worked with Prashant in the same group
I loved working with Ben at 1%Club. His enthusiasm is contagious. He did a great job leading the team and managing people. Making sure everybody involved were on the same page. He understands the tools and the tech that he is working with in detail and is great at sharing this knowledge with others.
Senior Java Developer at 42 BV
September 17, 2014, Ferrie was a client of Ben’s
In the past year that Ben has been working on our Python/Django website he has shown an exceptional balance of experience, knowledge, communication skills, working ethic and the ability to work in a well-structured manner.
Besides performing the tasks we needed him to do, he shared many valuable insights in the way the maintenance and development processes could be improved. He introduced new frameworks and libraries to the project, thereby simplifying and stabilizing the code base. Great changes were made while the site was continuously in production, all handled by him with care, flexibility and a keen eye for best practices.
Senior Software Engineer at Cisco Systems

Ben is a skilled programmer who has experience with a broad range of software technologies. He is comfortable with low-level (e.g., device driver) as well as high-level (e.g., IDE) code. He has excellent debugging skills and is able to quickly learn new codebases.
