Alteryx Consultant, Victa


I studied mathematics at the University of Twente. After my graduation I worked in Amsterdam for a couple of years, before going back east joining Victa a bit more than a year ago. At Victa I’m focusing on Alteryx, helping clients to solve many different problems. In my spare time I like to play football (the game in which you actually use your feet), go out with friends and visit matches of my favorite club Feyenoord.

He was introduced to how data is used to improve the objectivity in the decision making process. He.has worked in Healthcare and Sports and was becoming tired of using poor data visualisation tools to create analysis solutions when he fell upon the Data School, Tableau and Alteryx.

I know I cut out because of audio trouble, so I wanted to summarize some of the details I shared during the Hangout!


- there were 15 preliminary racers, who submitted 59 solutions, 43 of which had correct answers!

- during the Finals, our three finalists will race to complete 3 workflows focused around questions and challenges a business owner would have (think recruiting, office location, performance). One will focus on data preparation and blending, one will utilize spatial analytics, and one will need our predictive modeling tools to solve.


Can't wait to see these guys compete live!
