My current and past jobs

August 2000 - present:
Senior Software Engineer
RedStrike B.V. (Zaltbommel, The Netherlands)

RedStrike is a small startup that specializes in computer security products and solutions. Our first product is the Mamba Key and the accompanying Mamba Security Software. The Mamba product consists of the physical Mamba Key and software that can be used to authenticate the user of the Mamba Key to enable the transparent access to the data that is stored in an encrypted partition on the hard disk. The encryption key that must be used to decrypt the data is safely stored on the Mamba Key.

The Mamba Key is ready for production and we expect to start the ramp up of the production within two months (January 2001).

Because we are a small company, my job consist of much more that just software  development. Currently we are working on new products and enhancements of the current product. Most of the enhancements are related to user friendliness and integration with other security solutions.

job1.jpg (8425 bytes)

In my job as Software Development Engineer, I was responsible for the design and implementation of embedded software that was used for real-time digital signal processing of signals in the 0-25kHz range. The largest project I worked on consisted of a program that ran on the Motorola 56001 digital signal processor. It was the implementation of a four channel, real-time spectrum analysis program. It used digital filters (in software) to decimate the sample stream and divide the spectrum in octave bands.
