Matthijs Theelen: Product Owner

  • Matthijs Theelen

As a Product Owner at Nétive, I am responsible for translating customer needs and new market developments into functional and technical specifications. I do this in close collaboration with our direct customers and partners, end users, developers and consultants and by involving them in our workshops, user research and webinars. The experiences I have gained working as an interaction designer, functional analyst and front-end developer really add to this. In particular I like to focus on usability and the security of our platform. In all of this I like to make the quality of our product important. Quality to me is having happy users and happy customers. Because we are working with the scrum agile method we really get the chance to do so.

The family culture at Nétive is really important to me. Everyone understands the importance of a happy and healthy group of people who are motivated to go to work every day. I have very ambitious, hard working, but above all else; fun colleagues who are always in for shooting hoops, drinks or a movie night.

If I am not at work, you can find me and my girlfriend in our garden or out for a run. When the weather is nice and we are done with landscaping, I will pull out the BBQ. There is nothing better than having a nice dinner and refreshing beer with friends.
