Joris de Ruiter
Hi there, my name is Joris de Ruiter. I love surfing, exponential technology, food, programming, meditation, MeteorJS and entrepreneurship. I live in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Read more about what I do and want to do or my skills, experience and education.

What I do

I solve real-world problems by creating software (apps and websites) for startups and established companies. I love to be involved in all the phases of product development. Applying the principles of the LEAN Startup is something I find very important.

In addition I offer technology consulting services for businesses who want to get ahead digitally.

What I’m looking for

I’m looking for a new, long-term, opportunity either as a founder, freelance developer, product manager or consultant at/with an awesome company. I prefer companies that, although they may act small, think big! A company that is leveraging an exponential technology for instance. 3D Printing, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence or Internet of Things are topics that have my interest, to name a few.
