Boudewijn Janssen

Young Professional

Hi, I am Boudewijn, 27 years old and have enjoyed working at Tensing as a Young Professional since 1 June 2023. 

I did my Bachelor's degree in Earth Sciences at Utrecht University, where I came across GIS after a long search and a world opened up for me there. In my thesis, I used three aerial photos and elevation maps to investigate the threshold for vegetation recovery after a debris flow in the Alps. After that, I actually moved straight on to Tensing.

Spare time
I was born in Rotterdam, raised in Breda and live with a housemate in Utrecht. There, I sing in a classical choir every week and play rugby. Besides this, when time allows, I do weight training, I like to ski in winter and go camping and hiking in nature from a camper van together with my boyfriend. In the evenings, I am also up for a board game, games or other socialising.

Why Tensing?
I was introduced to Tensing by a rugby team member and was immediately drawn to the positive atmosphere and collegiality. In addition, Tensing obviously has a focus on GIS which appealed to me a lot. They also motivate you to grow and give you the tools to do so.

Better someone who sings loudly out of tune, than someone who doesn't sing at all
