About

Snowboarder, music maker (drums, guitar, piano), and undercover hard core nerd.

Hi! My name is Rijk. My career building digital products started back in 2007, but in a way I've always been fascinated by creating experiences and building things that improve people’s lives.

Rijk • /ræɪ̯k/ • adjective  🔊 — Yup, Rijk is a special name, even here where I am from. Not the easiest one to pronounce either, I know! For English speakers, it is a bit like Mike with an R. Or just call me Rich, that's what it means :)
I love working on the crossroad between users, founders and technology. Connecting vision to features, design to development, and shaping products that not only solve real problems but are also a delight to use. Making technology more human. My main values are authenticity, responsibility, keeping it simple — and having a little fun while we’re at it!
“Rijk is a source of creativity and innovation. He helps us push boundaries, and we love that he dares to ask questions and challenge assumptions.”
