Martijn de Milliano
I am a prototype engineer and problem solver. In my work I use my 'glue' skills, multi-language software experience and practical hardware knowledge to make heterogeneous systems work together. I can dig deep into complex problems until I find a good solution. I like to ask the one question that discovers the bug. I combine structured programming skills with a getting-the-job-done mentality and enjoy working in an ambitious team. My aim is to create simple and elegant solutions to relevant problems where quality and reliability is essential to succeed.
Over the years I have gained experience in developing various types of software: from the on-board software for the flight computer of a sounding rocket to mobile apps to data processor systems for handling big data. I know how to make drivers to connect software to all kinds of devices: from commercial radar systems to cameras to maritime navigation systems and controllers for stepper motors.
I like the thrill of making something work: when a message appears on the other end of the line, when the LED blinks on your command, when you wave your hand across a sensor and you see it on your screen, when the parachute deploys from the rocket at exactly the right moment.
Right now I am working on the world's first AppScooter at Bolt Mobility: the Dutch Tesla on Two Wheels. This is a exciting challenge that combines the worlds of automotive with smartphones and the internet. Needless to say, software plays a major role here and I am happy to be in the middle of it. In addition, I specified the electronics for the cockpit, from internet modem to Android platform to LED drivers and co-designed the schematics in close cooperation with the electrical engineers. This requires a combination of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and software skills. You need to be a jack of all trades (the downside is you are master of none), and in this role I really thrive.
