About me

Front-end developer (Nordija)
(Dutch) Living in Denmark
Information Technology

Hi! I’m Bram van der Giessen.

I am originally from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and for the past 5 years, I have been working as a front-end software developer. First, in the safety & planning domain of the maritime sector and now at Nordija, transforming the way people consume TV & on-demand content.

I studied Media technologies and obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. During my studies, I developed a strong interest in web & app technologies, which is still with me to this day.

In 2017 I moved to Denmark, where I now live with my girlfriend in a small city called Skodsborg (just outside of Copenhagen).

You can contact me through hello@bramgiessen.com or find me on Github.

Founder

Consolenet
2007 – 2010 (3 years)
Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Consolenet was my own “company” that I started when I was 14 years old. It consisted of a website where people were able to make an appointment with me to come by with their broken gaming consoles, which I would then fix for a set fee.

With this project I learned for the first time how to set up a website, gather customers and communicate with my own customers at a very young age.

Fun fact: I made some nice pocket money compared to my peers at age 14.
