Rik van Berkum

GIS Consultant

My name is Rik van Berkum and I have been working at Tensing as a GIS consultant since September 2019. I am from Nijmegen and I currently live in Wageningen.

I think the great thing about geo-information is that you look at the earth from a new perspective. There is a lot to discover from this perspective. I studied Geodesy / Geoinformatics at the Hogeschool Utrecht. This study was a nice combination of theory and practice. During my internships at Van Steenis Geodesy, Water Board Aa en Maas and ProRail I gained my first work experience. After my studies in Utrecht, I continued my studies at the Master Geo-Information Science at Wageningen University.

I like to play the saxophone. This instrument is great for Jazz. The nice thing about Jazz is that there is a lot of room for improvisation. During improvisation you have to come up with something on the spot and then I can really use my creativity.

Why Tensing
I like the Tensing team. There are nice and ambitious colleagues that you can work with. There is a lot of FME knowledge in the Tensing team that I can learn from. You will also be given the space to develop yourself and to obtain certificates.

At Tensing you get the space to develop yourself and to obtain certificates.
