The user-friendliness of IT often leaves something to be desired in practice. That is why Wikibase made the conscious decision to use the MediaWiki platform: no system is known worldwide and so user-friendly at the same time. In this way, we help companies to effectively streamline information and share knowledge. It is our mission to empower ambitious organizations to achieve more with MediaWiki. Our vision is to enable organizations to do what they want with the MediaWiki platform.
Because Wikibase focuses entirely on the MediaWiki platform, we are real specialists. Our permanent employees realize the most advanced functionalities with relatively simple means. In addition, we can count on the expertise of the wiki community and the support of carefully selected partners. This way Wikibase can always deliver on its promises.
For more than twenty years I did everything that has to do with software development. In 2012, this experience brought me to start Wikibase Solutions. I focus on everything needed for our employees to perform at Wikibase Solutions. I guide them and work on the processes and structure of the organization. I like doing the same in cooperation with our customers and with our partners.
Live in Den Hout with Lucienne, dog Leffe and cat Vlekje. It is wonderful to push each other to great heights with the Tuubke men on bicycles.
Due to an interim assignment, I ended up as a business administrator in the software industry in 2014. I never wanted to leave this fascinating sector ever since. The growth of Wikibase requires a lot of attention to recruiting great colleagues with whom to strengthen our team. Furthermore, as a director, I am involved in marketing/sales and finance.
My motto is: Teamwork Makes The Dream Work. Building relevant ambitions for customers who make a difference with our solutions gives me energy. As well as the home base with Mariska and our two daughters. During my career, I have always found time for sport and social commitment. Waking up for a nice glass of wine.
For me the fine task is to ensure that everything that has to do with finances is ultimately administrative! I am also responsible for doing the shopping. This allows our employees to enjoy a nice lunch at the office every day.
I love our (office) dog Leffe. Sparkling People is the best choir ever and I love to sing a note with them! What for Wikibasers may feel like clay with a wiki, I clay with real clay, wonderful to do. Office mother, foster mother, mother ... I am all that and I get a great deal of satisfaction from it.
Did you know that you can land a career in information technology because of, rather than in spite of, a background in foreign languages and the humanities? It’s the route that I embraced and not just because a computer language also just happens to be a foreign language. As a web developer at Wikibase Solutions, I like to conceive and design functionalities that suit the needs of the customer. From the first informal sparring session to the continued development of the information structure, there’s never a dull moment. I attach great importance to the right design for the right target group: a website must feel like your canvas and illuminate as well as stimulate where necessary. What helps to keep me inspired in this line of work is that we can increasingly explore the limits of what is possible from a solid basis. And I haven’t even talked yet about the excellent colleagues and working atmosphere that make this all possible.
About ten years of marketing & PR and more than twenty years of experience in creating websites.
In my free time, I am a 3D tutor, photographer and BBQ Chef.
During my Computer Science and Astronomy studies, I still find a few hours to work for Wikibase Solutions ...
Before I started working at Wikibase, I studied aerospace engineering. That is quite different, although I had already gained some programming experience during my studies. At Wikibase, I was initially busy with testing SimpleGov while I was learning wikis. At the moment I am mainly working on maintenance and further development of the Partners and Pröpper Solutions wikis. In addition, I occasionally have some SimpleGov chores to do.
I found Wikibase because I knew Ad and Lucienne from the past due to the fact that I was in the same class as their son. During my studies, I did an internship at a space company in Stuttgart for half a year, but I prefer to be in the Netherlands. I like to walk in the forest where I live nearby. I also spend my free time reading, gaming and baking my own sourdough bread.
In addition to my job at Wikibase, I study Data Science in Engineering at the TU in Eindhoven. I like to apply the theoretical knowledge that I gain during my studies in practice at Wikibase, by testing projects or helping with the development of projects. At the moment I am mainly concerned with the hosting side of the 'SimpleGov' project.
I also play the bass guitar in the Oosterhout rock band Windup Space and I am on the hockey field of the student hockey club Don Quishoot in Eindhoven every Sunday.
I study computing science at the Radboud University. When I am not busy with my study, I develop MediaWiki extensions for Wikibase Solutions.
I work part-time for Wikibase during my Masters in Astronomy in Leiden. For example, during my training, I provide work experience and I get to know practical applications of IT. During my studies, you certainly learn to code, but everything remains very theoretical. Within Wikibase I am given the space to develop and improve myself. I've learned a lot from it!
In my spare time, I am a DJ and artist, I also run my own music label with friends. To cool off from all the hustle and bustle, I like to watch films and practice on the piano.
I have been busy creating and designing websites for quite some time. In addition, I am interested in social issues and applied design. During my HBO Bachelor of Design, I was involved in Fashion Design and 3D Computer Graphics with a lot of interest in Open-Source. After this study, I further developed from Graphic Design to Web Development and am aware of the latest technical developments and design trends. I have a lot of fun developing for the web and am fully satisfied with Wikibase Solutions.
During my part-time education in IT I encountered a job application for the amazing job of developer with the fun team at Wikibase. Now that was an opportunity too good to pass up! Over the years I’ve gathered a lot of theoretical knowledge concerning the development cycle, mostly from two educations in IT, and I’m looking forward to using that knowledge now. Before this, I’ve spent years working for the best theme park of the Netherlands and I plan on using the experience in customer friendliness I gathered there at Wikibase to ensure the user friendliness of our applications.
Next to my job, I focus mainly on organizing my roleplaying group (which is honestly a lot like herding cats), gaming and sports. Of course, I’m always up for a coffee at a nice coffee place. Anyone for a delicious latte?
I studied Nutrition and Health on the Wageningen Univsersity, something quite different than the ICT.
In my last year I did something completely different than my study and so I looked a little further around me and that is how I ended up in ICT industry.
I joined Wikibase solution through Charlot. I am the project manager. I like being the bridge between the client and the team to make sure the goals, tasks and time line are clear.
I live in Breda and in my spare time I do cycling and baking some delicious cakes: public favourite: Millionaires shortcake.
I started working at Wikibase while finishing my master in Mathematics. During my studies, I have been active for my study association, where I helped develop several parts of their websites and IT-infrastructure. The experiences I obtained there are valuable for my work here.
Besides my work and studies, I play computer games, go out with friends and sporadically go bouldering
My place in the company is an office / cuddle dog.
I take care of the change and movement because of course I also have to go outside and want attention. I am also there to cheer everyone up. I make sure that nobody is in a bad mood.
In my spare time, I love running laps in the garden and playing with the house cat, my best friend. I also like to play with other dogs and I love a lot of attention.
