Growing up on the beautiful island of Curaçao, surrounded by pristine beaches and rich culture, I consider myself lucky. Experiencing such a diverse and unique population has shaped me to become the person I am today.
From a young age, I was exposed to the world of IT. I can recall my father in his office always tinkering with whatever device he could get his hands on. Naturally, as I grew older my interest in IT became very prominent and I started to pursue this life path.
I would later come to find out that I was following the footsteps of my older brother who, like my dad, also chose a career in IT.
So, after high school, I decided to move to the Netherlands to study ICT in Groningen, and this is where my passion for entrepreneurship flourished.
Like my dad, I also started by tinkering with Raspberry Pi's creating my own Voice Assistant called Janna (yes I'm an Iron Man fan). This sparked a fire in me to do more, which was the start of my very first company.
Unfortunately, while I did learn a lot in the process, this venture did not take off.
But, I didn't give up here, I learned from my mistakes and this fueled my passion even more.
So, right before I graduated from University in 2019, I tried again! After some market research, Bitized was born.
My vision was to create a company that could fill the gap in the market for people like me, the ones who left their countries for better opportunities.
I always felt like I had a calling to make a difference in the lives of the people that have given me so much. And, as the company continues to grow the mission to eventually open up a Bitized branch back home becomes more realistic.
This, allows me to contribute to the overall growth of the island by providing high standard job opportunities in tech, where employees are valued. Creating a culturally rich company that gives others the option to move back home.
What our clients say about us
I have a good experience with Bitized for importing data via an API and setting up and maintaining a Windows SQL database. Bitized delivers high quality work, has a real hands-on mentality and is easy to work with because of the short lines of communication.
Great experience for our first official project. The deadlines could have been communicated a little better, however it got better towards the end of the project. They were a pleasure to work with.
Their skillfulness assisted us in reaching our objective and we look forward to work on more projects with them hereafter.
