I’m Rik, and today marks my return to Bitcraze. Some of you might remember me from a couple of years back when I spent a few months here as an intern. Perhaps you’ve even stumbled upon my guest blog post discussing the paper that concluded my master’s degree. I’m thrilled to be back in the fold!
It’s exciting to be back in Sweden. I love to cook, and although traditional Swedish and Dutch cuisine share quite some similarities (a lot of potatoes and gravy), it’s nice to try out new ingredients and foods. Additionally, being close to the great outdoors is a major draw for me. I already went on my first hike and I heard there are some nice bouldering areas not so far from Malmö.
One of the things that initially attracted me to Bitcraze are its close ties with the research community. In fact, it was through my own research as a master’s student that I first encountered the company. I’m eager to deepen these connections further and collaborate with researchers across various disciplines. Combining this with a team of talented colleagues and a vibrant enthusiast community makes it a great opportunity to learn!
I’m particularly drawn to Bitcraze’s unique organizational ethos. The emphasis on self-organization and collective success resonates with me. The idea of continuously shaping our workplace to reflect our values truly excites me.
See you around!
