Hello. I am Matts Bos

I’m an IT pro from the Netherlands who is addicted to gaining knowledge, absorbs information like a sponge and utterly dislikes reading books. I find that almost anything I run into is interesting and love to participate in challenges. Teaching others brings me satisfaction, passing on knowledge and helping others is something I’ve been doing my whole life.

On this website you will find my personal profile and things I’d like to share with the world.

ABOUT ME

Hello, my name is Matts Bos and I’m an IT pro. Growing up I always had a passion for computers, games and more importantly, the techniques behind them. At one point I decided to stop both my studies at the university and work in the healthcare business, ready to create some new opportunities. Now I’m one of those guys that turned his hobby into a job.

I’m an autodidact, meaning I am able to teach myself how things work. I love the challenge of discovering something new and figuring out how it all works, this often results in spending all my free time of the day learning new things and/or improving my knowledge.
Next to that I’m a perfectionist, every inch of me wants to deliver without a single flaw, in every assignment and every project, I aim for that one-hundred percent. I can disappoint myself with the tiniest of errors but I always make sure the sky is cleared before moving on.

I love working in an environment with good ethics, people that stand behind their choices and take responsibility. I believe accepting responsibility for things I do is a big part of developing myself, I expect the same of people around me.

The past years I built up around 6 years of experience in IT, working for a small company with small customers. At present I’m working for RedLogic B.V. servicing enterprise grade solutions.
