Hello from Thailand!

Hello from Thailand!

Not 1, not 2,  but 3 new colleagues! We are proud to introduce to you: Ricardo Kloth, Frederik Schadd and Nick Andries. Quote challenge: “I met up with a friend in Thailand and he told me about Mediaan. And now I am here.” Was it Ricardo, Frederik or Nick?

Ricardo Kloth

Hello! My name is Ricardo Kloth, I recently turned thirty years old. Since September, I am proud to say that I started working as a software engineer at Mediaan!

Ricardo Kloth

Hi there!

My name is Ricardo Kloth, I recently turned thirty years old and currently live in Heerlen together with my girlfriend. I got to know Mediaan through their presence at Zuyd Hogeschool while I was studying Technische Informatica. Since September I am proud to say that I started working as a software engineer at Mediaan!

Before joining Mediaan, I’ve worked at Motto Communications for about 6 years. As a lead software engineer, I managed a team of full-stack developers in shaping a cloud distribution platform.

I like creating complex web applications, but I also have experience in creating scalable and distributed back-end systems. Furthermore, I have a big passion for graphic design and UI/UX. Creating beautiful interfaces and effortless experiences are what I take great pride in. I solve problems using software and visual design and the combination of these polar opposites is my strongest asset.

In my spare time, I love to play the guitar, play football and go to the gym. Although lately my interest is piqued by music production. It seems to scratch the same creative itch as developing and designing.

Again, I’m grateful to be joining Mediaan and I’m looking forward to taking on challenges with my new colleagues!

Frederik Schadd

Hi! My name is Frederik Schadd and I work for Mediaan in Heerlen as a Data Scientist since October 2018. I am 33 years old and live in Maastricht.

Frederik Schadd

My name is Frederik Schadd and I work for Mediaan in Heerlen as a Data Scientist since October 2018. I am 33 years old and live in Maastricht. I grew up in the Eifel in Germany, but thanks to my Dutch parents I can also speak Dutch.

Prior to joining Mediaan, I was working at Philips for 3 years in Eindhoven. There I was first working as an AI Developer for Philips Research. After that I joined a Philips department called CDP2, which is the organization that makes all digital components for Philips consumer products. In their analytics department, I was first working as a Data Engineer and later switched roles to become a Data Scientist.

My academic background is in Knowledge Engineering and Artificial Intelligence, which I have studied at Maastricht University. There I also performed research for four years, allowing me to defend my PhD dissertation in 2015.

In my free time, I do climbing as a sport, both bouldering and lead-climbing in-doors and outdoors. Other hobbies of mine are board-games and improv theater. Once or twice a year I  also go snowboarding, usually in the alps.

Nick Andries

Hey! My name is Nick Andries and I started working for Mediaan as a Functional Consultant at the start of October.

Nick Andries

Hey! My name is Nick Andries and I started working for Mediaan as a Functional Consultant at the start of October. I’m 24 years old and live right across the Dutch border in Zutendaal.

In February this year, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Software Management at the PXL Hasselt in Belgium. During my studies, I did an internship in Dublin for 4 months where I worked as a QA engineer.

Before stepping onto the work floor, I decided to go on an adventure. I went travelling for 5 months in Southeast Asia. I wanted to see more of the world, experience different cultures and meet new people.

I met up with a friend in Thailand and he told me about Mediaan. And now we are here, and I’m ready to start my new adventure. I look forward to improving myself and being a valuable colleague.
