My name is Robert van Hoek, 26 years old and currently living in Amersfoort. In September 2019 I started working at Tensing as a GIS consultant. Before I came here, I followed the bachelor Social Geography & Spatial Planning at Utrecht University. During this bachelor I discovered the world of GIS and knew right away that I wanted to work with GIS in the future. Not surprising, I already was fascinated by maps when I was young. For example, I loved to follow the route to our holiday destination on paper roadmaps. With the master Geographical Information Management & Application (GIMA) I prepared myself for a career in the world of GIS.
At Tensing I have the possibility to develop my skills in ArcGIS and FME even further. I participated in the Young Professional program, where I gained more experience and learned from all the existing expertise of colleagues.
In my spare time, I like to sport or to watch sports on television. I am mostly interested in Football and Cycling. At the moment, I mainly practice Football myself. Every Monday evening I compete in a 6 vs 6 competition with a team of friends in Utrecht. Besides sports, I like to spend time with friends and family.
