We don’t do business with companies, we do business with people. The human aspect within IT is very important to us. Soft skills and a sense of ownership are therefore of highest importance to us. We show guts by challenging ourselves on a regular basis. Hereby we feed our ambition, drive, innovativeness, but also our flexibility. A quality that differentiate us within our market.
Robert van Leenders
Robert is a man who thinks in solutions. “Roll up your sleeves and get it done” is his motto. He’s not afraid of challenges. He quit his job when he was 26. Went around the world and then started his career. Sports is his passion. During the weekend Robert is a local football youth coach at RKSV Heeze in his home town. But with the same passion on weekdays he runs an entire IT department as a scrum master.

Richard has a temperamental character and for good reason married a Venezuelan. He likes to be on the move. Played badminton from an early age and is now an avid Latin/ballroom dancer. “Not from the head, but from the heart.” This makes him a characteristic ICT professional. He likes to motivate and activate people. Richard is now a successful consultant, teacher and trainer, is an Oracle ACE — an Award for the Oracle community — and gives workshops worldwide.

Jan’s expertise lies within the (municipal) government and commercial companies in the areas of process, finance and information management. In 2003, together with his partner Sergei Martens, he started Stadsbeheer BV. A leading player within the government market. “I have held various roles and positions including: consultant, project leader, department head, general manager, managing director and programme manager. My drive is to be able to contribute to a better society, through the efficient and service-oriented deployment of company resources, finance and ICT”.
“I have my background in logistics and supply chain. Always find programming fascinating and sort of magic. I started with simple print line in Python and select statement in MySQL. After 4 years in the fields I evolved from logistics engineer to software developer. Now I am a trainee at SMART4Solutions and started my journey to become full stack developer in the world of Oracle. I am looking forward to the day I can say proudly that I am Oracle specialist. I am not always a nerd, in my spare time I also enjoy a lot of mountain biking on the track.”
Luciano is a driven, analytical organizer and fulfils the role of security manager with this characteristic. Luciano comes from the public sector and previously earned his spurs by setting up several companies. "Making a translation between customer needs and realizing them is not strange to me. I like to consult with those involved and get to the bottom of research into user needs. The safety aspect is always a priority for me. It is the lifeline within every application for any organization."
Kevin is an ambitious ‘fast grower’, always hungry for knowledge and oriental food and nature. Kevin loves programming, but the communicative side is just as important to him. Within five years, he sees himself as an IT professional who will combine these two parts.
Leon is a real fine-tuner as a developer. A nice feature that you‘ll find in his hobby. Leon builds and maintains guitars until they are completely in-tune again. Not stopping until something is finished is in his blood. "I’m a real go-getter, so ‘not possible’ doesn’t exist." With his 21 years of experience as a developer he also likes to accompany the younger guard. Something that fits completely within our DNA.
Thomas has an HBO-ICT Software Development background. But he is a jack of all trades. For example, before his ICT education, he studied applied psychology plus training as a second-degree English teacher. “I think I myself get happiest from making other people happy, and solving customers’ software problems naturally fits in with that. I find myself here among an energetic and sociable team. Here I mainly get the chance for self-development and development in the field of Oracle APEX. I definitely see great growth opportunities here.”
"I am in my final year of Software Development at the Koning Willem I College in Den Bosch. I have mainly worked with HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL and C#. Always thought front-end suited me more, but ended up liking back-end much more. My choice for an internship at SMART4Solutions comes mainly from the challenge I want to take on. Oracle APEX is a completely new language for me, and therefore instructive and fun! Furthermore, SMART4Solutions offers a stress-free work environment with professionals around me to help where needed. My passions are gaming, movies and playing soccer at RKSV Schijndel and I recently started a course in Swedish.
