Pieter de Vries

Senior Account Manager
my story

I've always been interested in data and analyzing stuff. Whether it's optimizing an online campaign to increase its performance, or checking if wind conditions will be favourable for a surf session. Working in the online industry helps a lot in that respect. Next to that, I love being surrounded with people. Data is nice but collaborating with my colleagues and business partners daily brings a dynamic I wouldn't miss for the world!

my story

‘No one player is as good as the sum of a team,' Alfredo Di Stefano said this, but also my coach when I started playing football at an early age. Since then, I always try to apply this way of thinking to every phase of my life, either when I am working, or when I am playing with my music band. I am jubilant that I am surrounded by people who also love working in a team!

Marina Baskaric

Account Manager
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!

Account Associate
my story

Never back down. Ever since I was a kid I’ve always fought for the goals I set for myself. Work hard, and you’ll be able to “pick the fruits” as we say in the Netherlands. Advidi motivates me because of the focus on improving - if you don’t go for it, you’ll never improve. I especially enjoy the international environment of the company, as I was born in Singapore whilst being half French, half Dutch. Being in a position to work with colleagues and accounts from all over the world is also a big source of inspiration for me.

Matthijs Bos

Acquisition Manager
my story

After three years living and working in China, plus my experiences here in Amsterdam, I’m excited to bring my international perspective to Advidi as a Team Lead. My background in both recruitment and business development has led me to balance my focus on people with a keen eye for opportunity. I use that combination to build a strong foundation within my team, allowing us to remain stable in our current business while keeping ahead of the industry curve. Despite the fact that business is frequently on my mind, I’m always able to find some time for sports - a bit of friendly competition takes my mind off the day-to-day grind and helps me re-focus.

Sjors Land

Account Manager
my story

Gaming has always been a big part of my life - you could say I was born with a controller in my hands. After years of building up experience in the marketing and advertising industry, combined with a strong technical understanding, I am now able to combine this with my love for games here at Advidi. I love building long-lasting, fun and friendly relationships with advertisers that allow me to give everyone involved the maximum results! Also, I love cats.

Rutger Diepstra

Account Associate
my story

“Treat people the way they want to be treated.” This is something I strongly believe in. Having travelled and lived in different countries due to my previous job, I’ve had the privilege of meeting all sorts of people from different backgrounds. Each one of them has their own story and approach to life - if I were to sketch a situation, no one would respond the same way. If you can get to understand people with a personal approach, you’ll find yourself on solid ground to build up business. A “people-first” mentality, as we say here at Advidi!

Jasper Metten

Affiliate Manager
my story

"For me, Jasper is the kind of colleague who you want to have a drink with, especially during the Friday after hours. His open minded personality together with his ability to always see the bright side of things, makes him a guy that is easy to work with as well. The good thing about working for Advidi is that you are making a lot of friends while you are working here, and Jasper is definitely one of them." - Stefan, AM

Michael Hijlkema

Senior Affiliate Manager
my story

"Today I don’t feel like doing anything, I just want to lay in my bed’’. These lyrics have definitely nothing to do with my work ethics, but have absolutely something with me. A couple of years ago, I showed my musical talent on the Voice of Holland. Unfortunately the judges didn't turn their chairs, but it turned out to be a good step for my career as an affiliate manager. Even though a musical career is (not yet) achieved , at the office I always try to be at the top of my game. You can always expect passion, joy, enthusiasm and crazy shenanigans. I always try to bring a positive vibe into the office and brighten up my colleagues.

Patrick Spruit

Affiliate Manager
my story

I once found myself in the jungle of Northern Laos, one of the most uninhabitable areas of the country. It rained heavily and the walking routes became flushed. We felt stranded. Our guide remained calm and said: “The jungle does what the jungle wants, so just enjoy the ride.”
We trekked through untouched jungle beauty for hours before finding our way home. The trip was tough, but we agreed that it was invaluable. New experiences can be scary, but they make life exciting. So never wait until the rain stops. Be positive and explore. You never know what beauty hides behind the next tree.

Bram van Pul

Senior Affiliate Manager
my story

To be honest, I never expected to work in this industry - it just happened to me. At first I wasn’t very excited, but working at Advidi has changed that. I love the innovative, dynamic nature of the business. Our global nature means the work never stops; while some are ending their day, a new one is beginning for someone else, and we’re in the middle of that. I get to apply my data analysis and sales skills while seeing direct results, which creates a strong drive inside me to work in this industry. There are endless opportunities, and Advidi really supports me as I explore them. The energy here is unique!

Secil Durak

Affiliate Manager
my story

Go-getter is what I stand for, whether it’s a personal or work-related goal. I don’t back down from challenges and I’m not afraid to push my limits. I get motivated by passionate, hard-working and warm people, and that’s what I’ve found here. Not only is everybody always motivated to push their own limits, they are also willing to help you push past yours. So when I started working here I immediately felt at home. Other things that energize me are travelling, food, working out and connecting with new friends and sharing stories with existing ones. Advidi gives me the opportunity to do it all while I’m at work!

Tobias van Kralingen

Affiliate Associate
my story

I once planned to become the best footballer in the world… but after a few days at Advidi, with its outstanding vibe, I knew I had changed to the right path. I try to balance my enthusiasm for work with the simple things; for example, riding my bike through Amsterdam every morning is really valuable to me. Advidi is a place I’ve grown into - I started as an intern and quickly found my feet in the industry. It’s hard not to get motivated here. And yep, I’m a competitive person. The atmosphere here pushes me to improve - especially my analytical skills, which I consider my strongest asset. It’s great to be at a place where I can contribute to the fullest and still feel challenged.

Marijn van Drunen

Affiliate Associate
my story

Reliability is key to a successful (business) relationship, which is why I’m always straightforward with my business partners as well as colleagues and friends. As someone who aims high, I explore my boundaries with every project - whether it involves adapting a new technique or helping customers in different ways. I can adapt to new situations very quickly, which is why I love affiliate marketing. When I’m not working, I’m DJing or producing music, which I’ve been doing for nearly a decade now. Making music is my outlet for the more creative applications of my personality.

Rick Haasnoot

Affiliate Associate
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.

Daan Schroten

Affiliate Associate
my story

For me, marketing is the art of creating a need and making people decide to believe in your ideas. Since I gained an interest in marketing and psychology, I have become increasingly fascinated by what drives people to make decisions. The reasons for me to decide to choose Advidi included the energetic vibe in the office, the people, and the unlimited opportunities in this business. During office hours as well as in my life outside, I’ll always look for a solution to make things better and more efficient. I don’t like to do things halfway. Everything I do, I do it to the fullest.

Maja Mitrović

Affiliate Associate
my story

I’ve long been guided by the notion that a mind that has been stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions. This holds true both in my personal and professional life, leading me across the world and most recently propelling me into this ever-changing and exciting global community that is affiliate marketing. I love to be surrounded by people that challenge the way I think, and thrive in discussions that require a critical, forward-thinking and innovative mindset. Of course, one too must be grounded, in which case you can also find me with a good book, or having a good laugh with family and friends. Sarcasm is my second nature... which is why you should request me as your AM.

Victoria Chernyak

Affiliate Associate
my story

I am a globetrotter by nature. Ever since I was a little girl, I have dreamt of seeing the whole world. That’s why I decided to move to Amsterdam. I think a city like Amsterdam is the perfect home for a company like Advidi. It is very diverse, multi-cultural and fun, just like our industry. My job at Advidi allows me to be surrounded by amazing people with totally different backgrounds on a daily basis. Sometimes it can be challenging, but it always motivates me to keep evolving and developing myself.

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.

Thanh Le

Finance Executive
my story

As a person who likes changes and adventure, I traveled halfway around the world to study in The Netherlands. This new life offered so many new things and changes, but being strong, working hard and learning all the time helped me stand up. Joining Advidi is my new adventure with a great environment, nice colleagues and so much fun to be had. In this new adventure, we can be strong together, work hard together and learn from each other. I’m ready to show them how big we can go!

Job van der Zwet

Business Controller
my story

I’ve always been up for a good challenge, whether it’s preparing the company for new growth or exploring an open mountainside at high speeds. They’re all opportunities to push your boundaries. That’s why the growth mindset in this company gives me so much energy. Just like skiing, the next corner always brings something new - even if you’ve been there before, the snowfall since last time means you have to adapt. I really like the atmosphere at Advidi. The company vibe motivates me to improve every day, and the fact that we’re in an industry that is constantly evolving makes it even more exciting.

Kjell Kerkvliet

Accounts Payable Specialist
my story

I’m always up for adventure. Whether it is sliding down the ski slopes, sailing on the local lakes near my home town or cruising the roads on my motorbike, I am always up for it! I found the same kind of vibe here at Advidi, always moving forward; progression. I’m not only adventurous. I distinguish myself as a precise guy as well. This ability helps me a lot in my work here at the finance team. Besides, it also helps me in beating my colleagues at darts and foosball :)

Idriss Maghiouzi

Finance Manager
my story

Born and raised in Morocco, I have lived and studied in the Netherlands, UK and in Mexico. This mixture of cultures and experiences has enriched me and made me realize that anything is possible as long as you are motivated enough to pursue your dreams. Every day is a learning day at Advidi, and I am lucky to be surrounded by internationally oriented people who are driven by improvement and creativity. Oh ja! I am passionate about traveling and languages ;-)

Copywriter
my story

I was brought up by a loving family and Kurt Vonnegut novels. Born in Ohio, raised in Oregon, finally at home in Amsterdam. I miss my family, friends, Timbers matches, snowboarding and Darth Vader on a unicycle playing flaming bagpipes. I originally came for a two-month visit, but it’s become a never-going-home stay, and I’m happy it now includes working at Advidi. I feel encouraged to grow and improve myself while contributing something valuable. My voice is heard (even when it’s saying dumb things). I’m really proud to be a part of that.

Kevin Kreuger

Web 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.

Giovanni Garrone

Graphic Designer
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.

Gabriella Holm

Event Coordinator
my story

I am a person who was born on an island in Sweden. Who loves being in water but hates drinking it. Someone who loves happy music. Enthusiastic. Empathetic. A person who lives and dies in sneakers. Someone who decided to move and live in Kenya when she was 16. I am that person who actually gets excited about spreadsheets. And a person who thinks being kind takes you a long way in life.

Human Resources

Sharon de Stigter

Talent Acquisition Manager
my story

Coming from a background in psychology, I stepped a bit outside of my comfort zone by joining Advidi, and it’s been a great experience from the beginning. I love challenges and am grateful that my previous experiences have prepared me for this environment - I appreciate that I’m able to bring a professional touch while finding the best people for our unique workplace. Everyone here is truly cool, which makes me feel confident walking into the office every day - I know I’ll be surrounded by friendly colleagues while doing something that inspires me.

Business Intelligence

Anetey Abbey

Head of Business Intelligence
my story

For me, the sky is not the limit, the mind is. At Advidi, I feel that there is freedom for the mind to create, to improvise and to develop. This is what I love here. This and data. I believe that “In God we trust, all others must bring data”. If you have data you can find the key to everything. You know what is real and what isn’t, where to go and what to avoid. Thus, you build your way towards a successful performance.

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!

Daniel Ramos

Market Analyst
my story

“Happiness is the tranquillity one feels when having the certainty of being on the right path”. - Jorge Bucay. The right path for me is in small things, in pleasant moments and in being around nice people. I think that the most powerful person is a happy one. When you are in the right place, with the right people and in the right moment, you can definitely feel happy and complete. So I always try to find the happy way of living. It brings me to the right places, nice people and good environments.

Inna Arabadzhieva

Junior Business Intelligence Analyst
my story

My story starts in Bulgaria, and my passion for numbers has been following me ever since. My next stop – Glasgow – was nice and memorable, but still I can’t compare it to Amsterdam. Here I feel like I can thoroughly develop my potential, and working at Advidi contributes a great deal to that. I love being part of the BI team, as we are not only transforming data into meaningful insights and beautiful reports, but also having a lot of fun in the meantime and enjoying every aspect of the work. Besides that, what makes me excited is riding my bike around the city, going to the movies and to artsy events, or simply having a great meal outside.

Mariolande Eising

Junior Developer
my story

My love and deep-rooted passion for IT and Web Development have enabled me to become part of this dynamic company. I must confess that I have always had a passion for helping people; coming from a background in nursing, I have stepped a bit outside of my comfort zone. I am fascinated whenever I encounter people who love to create, build awesome apps and embrace what they do. I am always inspired by those people, especially my husband. “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious” -Albert Einstein

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

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.

Office

Romy Peter

Office Assistant
my story

I always wanted a dog, but my parents believed that I was too young for that. Still, I had already decided that I’d have a dog, and I gave her the name ‘Niksi’ (which means ‘nothing’ in Dutch). Obviously, she got this name because she never really existed. Nonetheless, I took Niksi with me everywhere I went. One day Niksi got 1,000 puppies, which meant she was no longer allowed to live with me. Instead, she moved to my grandfather’s barn. A few years later, my grandfather called me over, saying that he had great news for me. He had bought me a real puppy - and her name was Niksi, of course! My imaginary dog wasn’t imaginary anymore. This experience taught me that we should never give up on our dreams!

Kai Erquicia Cortegoso

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.

Irene Nijholt

Office Manager
my story

I’m a perfectionist with a bit of hosophobia (I can’t stand dirt); that’s why I’m pro at organizing. From the moment I walked into the Advidi office, I felt excited and responsible - so much that it can be hard to enjoy my days off! I love the young, dynamic environment here and feel like I fit right in.

In my free time I enjoy board games with friends (Rummikub is my favorite) and getting totally lost in classic British detective series. Above all, I love staying close to my family and friends - I’ve lived in Alkmaar my entire life, even when I was studying Arts and Economics in Utrecht and Amsterdam.
