Hi, my name is Jurriën Thijssen and I joined Tensing in July 2023.
While studying Planning, I was introduced to GIS and in this direction I also found my first job at Here Maps as Quality Specialist/Spatial Analyst. Besides working in ArcGIS, in this position I learned to script with Python and was introduced to FME and big data. Later, as an external employee at the Rijnland Water Board, I did another assignment with ArcGIS Pro to support a dyke raising project. Before Tensing, I worked as a data manager with other GIS systems and non-geographic data at TenneT TSO.
Nijmegen is the city where I was born and where I have also been living on my own for several years. I am broadly interested and therefore I actually always have one or two books lying around that I am working on, fiction or non-fiction. But sport is also indispensable to me. As a child, football was the only thing I did, but nowadays I prefer cycling, going to the gym, doing some yoga exercises and/or dipping into the mirrored wall in winter. In recent years, I also increasingly volunteer in the fields.
Tensing appealed to me from the first moment because of the people, the atmosphere and the knowledge in the field of GIS and geo. I can develop further here in a pleasant environment.
