“What do you do for a living?” — I am a Backend Developer

“Say wut?” — Web Developer.

“Eeeehmm” — I create websites

“Oh, so you are good with computers, can you help me with my printer?”

Sure, yeah, bring it on, what is the problem.

My name is Remon, I am 44 years old and I am a professional problem solver. No, I can’t find your kidnapped daughter and don’t ask me to service a car. (Although with some training, I probably could)

My passion lies in finding the right solution for the problems/issues that come my way. Whether they come from customers, colleagues or family. As long as it’s computer related, we’ll figure it out.

I can call myself a seasoned developer. In the past 14.1 years at Clearsite I have grown from a stubborn, know-it-all junior developer to a senior/lead back-end developer still just as stubborn, with many side tasks such as (website) security, server management, etc.

We have experienced a lot at Clearsite during this time, from small projects such as single-pagers or e-mail footers to years-long projects such as LeaseVergelijker.nl. More SOAP-XML and REST implementations than I care to admit ;)

All my knowledge has been gained from just doing the work, which started as a hobby when I was 8 and 21 years later took off as a career.
