Marina Baskaric

Strategic Partner Lead
my story

High school Marina was quite a dreamer; she dreamt of going to San Francisco, going on exchange, getting her Masters abroad and moving to a city that would feel right at the time. Not going to lie, high school Marina was a bit intense. Few years later, here I am, in the city I love at a company that challenges me every day. Happy and proud of everything that I have accomplished so far but most importantly, excited about what is yet to come. Making your dreams come true is hard work but there is nothing better than looking back at everything you have accomplished. Never stop dreaming!

Sjors Land

Senior Strategic Partner Manager
my story

I love building long-lasting relationships with advertisers, and making sure everyone involved gets the maximum results using data-driven insights. After years of building up experience in the marketing and advertising industry across multiple verticals, I am now able to apply the culmination of all this knowledge here at Advidi. Outside of work I love gaming, nature and my mischievous cats.

Alyona Nikitenko

Senior Strategic Partner Manager
my story

“Great things never come from comfort zones.” I always have that thought in my head. It is not possible to achieve something if you are staying in the same place. So I was more than happy to start working at Advidi. The magical atmosphere, people who are super professional in what they do, an opportunity to learn a lot of new things and to have one more interesting challenge in my life are only a few of the things I’ve found here. So don’t save any opportunities for later, because sometimes “later” becomes “never”. Do it now!

Tim Egbers

Senior Account Manager
my story

“If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, don’t ask what seat. Just get on."

I dedicated my college years to preparing myself for an international career. Then after college, I would immediately move abroad. At least, that was the plan.

Then Advidi showed up. The vibe, office, people and industry were something that I hadn't experienced before. I had to be a part of it.

This quote stuck with me and reminded me that sometimes you just got to jump on an opportunity, even though it might not be part of the original plan.

Remember to just enjoy the ride.

Arsen Manko

Account Manager
my story

Starting a career in Affiliate Marketing was a very significant event in my life. I believe that every affiliate marketer would agree that this industry changes marketing and it feels great to be a part of this evolution. A platform where you have a lot of room for both technical innovation and taking your managerial skills to the next level is how I would describe it. Being part of Advidi means that you are here to innovate and create experiences for every client and partner.

Andre Mesquita

Account Manager
my story

To dare to discover new frontiers and the will to challenge what people think is possible, runs in my Portuguese blood. I have been leaping from one endeavor to another and I'm far to feel like it's enough for now. Mixing with new cultures and getting to know new people has always been a pleasure of mine. I have lived in many different countries and created long-lasting bonds in every corner of the world. In me you will find someone that you can rely on, a team player and eager to do better. Advidi puts people first and believes in collaboration because the commitment of an individual to a team is what makes a company work.

Alessandro Cella

Account Manager
my story

The most boring part of achieving a goal is not having something else to look forward to. Luckily in this industry the sky's the limit, and Advidi is a rocket ship. I find Affiliate marketing a dynamic and ever-changing world, supercharged by many driven people. Being rarely satisfied and very curious, I found my sweet spot here.

Passionate Italian and global citizen, in my free time you either find me hunting for the best pizza in town or looking for the next beach paradise. The only thing I love more than food? Basketball!

Mariia Yarosh

Junior Strategic Partner Manager
my story

Born and raised in Ukraine, I came to the Netherlands at 17 years old ready to conquer the world. Except, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do. But that all changed once I took a marketing analytics course.

Performance-focused and data-driven - it was only natural that Advidi and I clicked! I genuinely believe in constantly improving, whether in business or my personal life and working with people who share those same values is beyond motivating. Advidi’s magic lies within the Advidi people - their drive is simply infectious!

Dennis Douadi

Senior Affiliate Manager
my story

Me in a nutshell. Travelling back and forth between my hometown and our capital city for a few years now and trust me, that’s no small endeavour. I guess it’s my way of juggling all the things that I value in my life; My big group of close childhood friends, my relationship, my family, my hometown-football club and my career. About the latter, business-wise you’ll find me available almost 24/7 and I sincerely believe that this kind of commitment and dedication is a great USP to have. It got me where I am now and it will take towards the goals that I have set for myself within this industry. Because after all, like the much-debated Jordan Belfort once said; “The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.”

Rick Haasnoot

Head of Affiliates
my story

As a goal-orientated and adventurous individual, I constantly strive to exceed limits. I conquered the Iron Viking Marathon, obtained the black belt in Judo and will be a real challenge if you play board/video games with me! I try to live my life at the fullest and to learn as much as possible along the way. I love to be around interesting people, travel a lot and use my longboard to get to work. Advidi inspires me because everyone else shares my high level of motivation for working hard and pushing to become even better tomorrow.

Affiliate Manager
my story

Our industry is constantly inspiring me. I’m inspired by the fact we don’t have borders and limits and our target audience is the world. As one GEO ends their day, another is just beginning - traffic never sleeps. The affiliate marketing industry has gathered the best and brightest world’s minds, and Advidi has gathered top minds of the industry. In the Advidi family, there is always an atmosphere of «sky is the limit». In the rapidly changing business with huge volumes of information it’s crucial to keep a work-life balance, so as for me, I find my internal peace either being in the forest surrounded by the silence of trees or listening to the silence of water cutting waves with my wakeboard on the weekends.

Rafi Friedmann

Affiliate Manager
my story

Building strong relationships and exceeding targets is my passion – like a fish in the water in my role here at Advidi. As an Affiliate Manager, my goal is to supercharge the success of all the affiliates I work with, whilst creating my own success along the way. I couldn't be more grateful to be part of this unique family. Advidi provides me with all the tools I need to get the most out of myself, and the people I work with. Did I mention we have more fun than you can even begin to imagine?

Claire Mazzocchi

Affiliate Manager
my story

Dutch looking but truly Italian. Over the past 6 years, I have found myself balancing between Italy and The Netherlands, finally ending up at Advidi. In this highly competitive industry, it's important to be open-minded, reframe your assumptions, be resilient, and always try to constantly surprise yourself first. In my daily life at Advidi, you will probably find me in the kitchen debating with our amazing chef, Kai over who does the best carbonara (me, obviously!).

Jur Hoekstra

Affiliate Manager
my story

Travelling the world, meeting new people of different cultures is the thing I love doing the most. Back at home in the Netherlands I love playing sports and meeting up with friends.

My motto in life is you either win or learn. There is no loss as long as you learn from it. From a young age, I have the mindset to win or either learn from every obstacle I come across. With this, I ensure to surround myself with people who have the same mindset and work hard to pursue this.

As Michael Jordan said: "Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships." Which mirrors the environment at Advidi and the people working here.

Fabiana Zheng

Affiliate Manager
my story

I’m a long way from “home” but it's safe to say I feel like I’ve found my home here in Amsterdam with Advidi. My history within social media marketing and sales lead me on a whirlwind journey to affiliate marketing. Working with Advidi the resources are limitless and reaching your full potential is achievable.

From the ‘Fancy Friday’ drinks to the company trips we always make sure to spend time bonding as a team. In such a varied environment it's easy for everyone to find their place and succeed together.

Alba Sabate

Affiliate Manager
my story

Living by the motto "Sí a todo", I never say no to a good plan, party, or adventure. After a year of going back and forth between Amsterdam, London and my home Barcelona, I decided that Amsterdam was the place I wanted to be. That wouldn't have been possible without Advidi welcoming me into their family. Here I am able to learn and grow, both professionally and personally every day, while always having so much fun with my amazing team.

Head of Business Development
my story

My parents told me that my favorite words as a kid were ‘who’, ‘what’ and most of all ‘why’? I was constantly busy discovering, finding out the purpose of things, trying to understand people’s motivation for their actions and thoughts. The Affiliate Marketing industry seems to be the perfect fit for me. I get to work with incredibly smart people while working in an extremely dynamic and innovative environment. There are who, what and why’s everywhere, every day.

Kevin Finn

Business Development Manager
my story

After working and living in Ireland for almost my whole life, it was time for a change. Moving to Amsterdam was next on my agenda and Advidi was the perfect place to begin my professional journey abroad. The culture, team environment and fun atmosphere around the office are infectious and make working with this company an awesome experience.

Finance

Aylin Cetin

Account Receivable Manager
my story

‘’Do I look forward to getting back to work?” I ask myself every morning to see if I am spending my days doing a job I love, with people I enjoy being around. I am really lucky that my answer is ‘Oh God yes!’ every day. At Advidi the environment is fun and motivating. It helps me achieve a work-life balance, even if it seems impossible nowadays. It taught me that you can find the way to spend quality time chilling with your beloved ones, going on camping trips or cycling. Things that I could never do if I had remained in my hometown, Istanbul.

Danny Hogervorst

Finance Manager
my story

When I was younger I had no idea what I wanted to be, like so many do. While I thought having my own bar was an amazing idea, I soon realized that it was not something I wanted to do my whole life - I wanted to further my education. So I went back to school and got my degree in Finance and Control. However, at that point, I still wasn’t ready to settle down, which led me to travel to Sri Lanka to see more of the world. Coming back from this adventure, I was ready to focus on my career, which led me to Advidi. Now I’m here, working in finance and I love it.

Alina Bakhtina

Accounts Receivable Specialist
my story

Born in a small town in Russia, living abroad has always been a dream of mine. Fortunately, my commitment and the ability to work hard made it possible and now I am a finance intern in the best company one can only imagine - Advidi.
Advidi has shown me that office life is not only about work, but the people involved in it, which is why the Advidi family culture is important to our team. When the satisfaction from a job and great colleagues meet each other, what else do you need?

Steven Westra

Business Controller
my story

"Never give up, improve every day, set goals and achieve them. Winning is what counts".
As a former athlete (in which I represented several Dutch national teams) these elements are a big part of my DNA. In my opinion, this outlook is key in order to gain maximum results and be the best version of yourself every single day.

Further to this, I'm a real team player who really wants to have fun and celebrate accomplishments together. For me Advidi is the perfect match; in this dynamic and highly demanding environment I'm surrounded by ambitious people who like to work hard and play even harder!

Jordy van der Spek

Accounts Payable Specialist
my story

Hi, I’m Jordy! Born and raised in the always windy city of Den Helder. I came to Amsterdam from my hometown and combined my studies in finance with working at Advidi where I’m surrounded by the best people, from whom I can learn every day!

In the finance world, I’m considered the ‘black sheep’ who is passionate about tattoos and fitness. That's what makes me unique in this, as everyone thinks it's a boring world. However, I am incredibly adventurous and I love seeing new parts of the world, creating unforgettable experiences that altogether make my life far from boring.

Stefan Tubac

Accounts Payable Specialist
my story

Being born and raised in Romania can be considered a blessing, but after coming to the Netherlands for studies, a variety of opportunities opened up. One of them happened to be a job opening at Advidi, where I started as an intern. Working here not only helped me develop professionally but also on a personal level, due to the amazing colleagues and young environment. Moreover, the company taught me that work can be fun while also being done properly. I am looking forward to seeing what the future at Advidi holds for me.

Kevin Stam

Junior Business Controller
my story

You never know where life takes you - from a small town, to studying in the UK and now living in Amsterdam. This created a mindset to expand, while meeting and building relationships with amazing people from all over the world. My goal is to be and help others become the best version of themselves, while continuing to grow. Advidi has the atmosphere, people and challenges that gives the opportunity to do all that!

Timo Woorts

Accounting Specialist
my story

A real Dutch man, born and raised in Amsterdam.
After seeing an article in a Dutch business magazine featuring the founder of the company I became interested in working at Advidi. I found it very inspiring to read how they built a healthy and fast-growing company from scratch; no stranger to the entrepreneurship mindset having started my own businesses during my studies. After my studies, for my professional development, I decided to get some experience and to have a look in the kitchen of a real self-made successful startup / scale up. That was and is Advidi. To this day, I have zero regret for my decision. I will always be thankful to Advidi and all the great people for the knowledge, motivation and inspiration they give me each and every day.

Giovanni Garrone

Visual Brand Manager
my story

Proudly born and raised in Northern Italy. Architecture degree in my background, graphic design in my present, with a dream to combine them in the future. I lived in Norway for almost two years - just the right amount of time to make me understand that it wasn’t “my place”. Glad to finally be in Amsterdam and work at Advidi in an exciting and dynamic environment. Just what I needed.My worst nightmare? To fall into the boredom of a routine life. The most important thing I’ve learned is that I don’t want to keep on wasting time doing things I don’t want to do! People who truly know me keep on saying my mind’s on the moon, but they don’t know what they are missing. The view from up here is amazing.

Amy Di Salvo

Events And Client Engagement Manager
my story

London raised, now Amsterdam based, with some Italian heritage thrown in to keep things spicy!

My passion for developing relationships and impactful events means I really have found a role that is the perfect fit for both my vivacious personality and my varied skill set. My work mantra has always been “Get the job done - but have fun doing it!” and here at Advidi, they certainly make the second part of that easy to achieve!

Jessica Betancourt

Senior Digital Marketing Manager
my story

Proud PuertoRican from the Bronx and raised during the hip-hop revolution of creative expression, music is a huge part of my life and culture. Always been an astronomy buff with a sense of humor, either looking up or far ahead. Love the details and see challenges as opportunities to be creative.

Starting out in hospitality gave me the freedom to explore life and funded many travels. University life expanded my perspective with mathematics, physics and philosophy...followed by a career in strategic management.

Milen Elefterov

Marketing Associate
my story

I started calling Amsterdam “home” after 6 years, and joining the Advidi team only helped to reaffirm my place in the city. The team, company culture and even our office all make it an amazing place to work. At the same time, being a marketing associate is filled with endless opportunities, and I’m excited to be surrounded by motivated and ambitious people as I explore this exciting journey.

Max de Mier Moolhuijsen

Marketing Associate
my story

Missing my home in Spain has become less difficult after starting my journey at Advidi. The international culture and great benefits of working in one of the most beautiful offices in Amsterdam makes every day an adventure.

In an industry like ours every day comes with new opportunities and challenges. Since I started working at Advidi I have developed skills I never expected to. As an experienced marketer in both traditional and digital media, I bring a lot to the table, yet I feel like there isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t learn something new from my teammates. I'm excited to be part of such an innovative company that is constantly growing and looking for ways to improve its services.

Human Resources

Marleen Hendriksma

HR Advisor and Talent Acquisition
my story

When I started at Advidi with my internship whilst doing my HR degree, I never expected that
I would like a company so much. During my time here, I was asked if I wanted to continue
working at Advidi as a corporate recruiter. I can't wait to connect the right people to this great company so they can have the same incredible experience I have had. Whilst working here the most important thing I’ve learned is that when you believe in yourself, you can make it happen. Also when you are surrounded by the right people, they will help you reach your goals. Because of this company culture, I am always happy to go to work where I am surrounded by people that help me grow and want to see me succeed!

Business Intelligence

Melody Herindra

Business Intelligence Analyst
my story

I’m usually a very quiet person, but that just means that i’m thinking a lot :-) I go through many books per month, so you can often find me in the non-fiction section at the international bookstore. Due to my childhood in Tokyo I really appreciate Japanese (pop) culture; I really love the online culture and community. This is why Advidi is such a good fit for me. Data analysis is what I do, ensuring my colleagues are supported by accurate reports, which helps them to operate efficiently. I love it here at Advidi and can’t imagine working anywhere else!

Every time I enter Advidi's office I feel like I'm in my second home in Amsterdam. And every day brings a new adventure. Together with the team, I explore data trying to find hidden gems that help us to gain more insights into the lucrative business we are running. I love to discover patterns in data just as much as I love traveling.

Islom Gaziev

Reporting Analyst
my story

Hello everyone!
Coming from Uzbekistan, if someone had told me 10 years ago that my future self would be living and working in the Netherlands, I would not believe them. But here I am!

I consider myself to be an introvert however working at Advidi, surrounded by my amazingly supportive team puts a smile on my face everyday. As well as the people, everyday I am faced with new opportunities to learn, which all in all creates the perfect working environment. Advidi really is an amazing place for a young professional like me.

Tommi Sisso

Medior Market Analyst
my story

Born and raised in Finland but I really grew up in my new home, the Netherlands. You might find me a bit quiet (it’s a cultural thing), but I am always up for an adventure and challenge, whether it is an unconventional holiday destination or fixing and maintaining my old house.

I am always curious and busy learning something new by either reading or working on my own projects. My commute is a perfect way of burning through new books!

I firmly believe in the power of data and analytics in decision-making. It is essential in the fast-paced and dynamic environment of Advidi. It is awesome that I get to turn that data into actual operational decisions!

Gueorgui Pironkov

Senior Market Analyst
my story

"Get 1% better each day" is a motto James Clearadvocates. By improving yourself by 1% every day you will end up being 37 times better at the end of one year (as 1.01^(365) ≈ 37)! This is what we aim for at Advidi, continuously improving our services to satisfy our clients exponentially. As a market analyst, my goal is to use the massive amount of data we have to optimize and understand the needs of our partners, so that they can "get 1% better each day" with us.

Tech Department

Kevin Kreuger

Developer
my story

Two years ago I worked in a financial department, but it wasn't my dream job. At that time I made the decision to do something I really like: Web design and web development. I studied for a year and followed different courses on YouTube and Udemy. In this time I got a few freelance projects.

After learning the ropes, I got my first job as a developer, where I learned a lot more and really refined my skills. Now I’ve been working at Advidi for a while and I like it a lot. I have amazing colleagues and Advidi gives me the space to be creative and continue to develop myself.

Rafael Moreno

Developer
my story

I like to cook in my spare time - mainly Mediterranean dishes, as I am originally from Spain. In my coding I also like to add some spice here and there to present our users and partners with the best flavours possible. Besides great colleagues and a great atmosphere, there's one extra thing that truly motivates me here at Advidi: the daily fresh dishes cooked by our office chef. Great food for great thoughts!

Dave van Hooijdonk

Developer
my story

Before I started my coding career I was working towards a PhD in Biomedical Science. Maybe that's why I really feel at home at Advidi: the chemistry between technology and people is amazing! Furthermore, I'm excited to explore what machine learning and artificial intelligence can bring to our field of expertise.

Jorden van Breemen

Lead Developer
my story

In life, it's all about great teamwork and balance. Einstein once said: “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” And great movement is what Advidi is all about! So as a member of our great tech team, we'll keep the pace of software development as close to the speed of light as Einstein will allow us.

Stephen Adams

Developer
my story

I’m an American, a Ph.D. in computer science brought me to Europe and my wife brought me to the Netherlands. I love a good challenge and working at Advidi is a great challenge. The fast-paced industry and passionate colleagues really push me to deliver my best every day! When I'm not working I enjoy running, reading, and programming on my personal projects.

Milica Dordevic

Developer
my story

Ten years ago, I wanted to be a physicist and live abroad, somewhere sunny by the beach.
I did pursue education in sciences but diverted from physics to computer science. I did end up living abroad but in the (not so sunny) Netherlands. I am not sure how 15-year-old me would react knowing all this, but having met all the amazing people on my journey, and now working with amazing colleagues here at Advidi, my present self is glad that things turned out exactly the way they have.

Stephen Cook

Support Engineer
my story

As a wee Yorkshire chap born in Doncaster, I watched my Dad tinker with various IT equipment. In many ways, I’m a jack of all trades, dabbling in a plethora of fields, including acting, djing, photography & videography. Exploring these passions has led me to some amazing places all over the world!
I approach my work with a wide-angle lens, putting everyone and everything into consideration with a little dab of creativity thrown into the mix!

Office

Kai de Bies

Office Chef
my story

I was 9 and really hungry that night when my dad figured out that he forgot to buy groceries. In panic, he started looking around the kitchen, and found a can of beans, knakworst (Dutch sausage), a few eggs and suspicious potatoes. I stood next to him astonished watching him cutting, cooking and flipping pans. I was expecting to try the worst meal ever! But, on the contrary, the mix that looked like a Spanish omelet was actually delicious! It was so good that we named it – Darkai. Maybe not the most creative name, since we only put our names together. But I learned something important that day - In time of crisis, use your creativity as your main force. It was also the day from which I started thinking about all the possible mixtures of flavors that can be brought together. I believe it was as well the day when I discovered the magic of cooking.

Management Team Assistant
my story

I grew up in Friesland, the north part of Holland in a city called Dokkum. Known by the world famous elfstedentocht (Eleven City ice skating Tour). I never thought that anybody could bring me to the ‘big city’ Amsterdam, but my boyfriend did. Five years and two kids further I can say that I really love this city and all its possibilities. With my job at Advidi I found the best place to work as well, so no countryside for me anymore!
