I am a professional Software Engineer, with a rich background in both (web) backend development and low-end mobile platform development. Over the years I have consistently received great to excellent performance reviews.
I believe in continuous self-improvement, and spend much of my free time on study and various research projects. Furthermore, I'm active on various open-source and emerging technologies mailinglists.
My greatest professional skills are problem solving, finding creative solutions and a strong drive for simple, elegant and clean code.
While employed at Microsoft Devices Group, I continued to lead Java UI development for Asha smartphones. Most notably we managed to port the new full-touch Asha OS to a premium ITUT form-factor well within schedule.
Shortly before transitioning to Microsoft, I was promoted to be the domain owner of Java UI and various other Java APIs. In that capacity I review and sign off each code change. This includes doing code reviews, API design, architecture reviews and feature-merge reviews.
Besides Java UI for Asha, I've worked on the highly successful AOSP (Android) based Nokia X series of devices, organized various internal Java related courses and trained the team in the use of modern test-driven development and refactoring practices.
As the Principle Engineer in Java Platform software for the Asha smartphone product line I lead a team of highly skilled professionals that develop and support all UI related areas of the Java platform.
Besides these responsibilities I review code commits for the entire Java area and coordinate with teams globally.
I have received consistent great to excellent performance reviews, including honors for my contributions on the before-schedule release of the Asha 501 in early 2013.

At Indenty we believe that to support rapid innovation employees should have the freedom to carve out their own job description. In the years I have worked with Daniël Bos, I have seen him grow as a Senior Software Engineer, taking over more and more responsibilities as a Tech Lead. Some of these include the profesionalization of the Research & Development department, getting the entire team onboard to follow an Agile development process, organizing training and certification sessions and helping prove the profitability of the department.
Daniël is highly respected by his co-workers for his willingness to help anyone anytime he can. He is a creative thinker, always challenging the organization with new solutions to problems and ideas for new products and services. He is very well organized, diligent, easily reachable, always on time and takes initiatives that go beyond the parameters of his job. Marcel Brandriet, CEO, Innovadis Group
This letter is my personal recommendation for Daniël Bos. I have been Daniël's immediate supervisor for several years, first at Gladior and later at Indenty. Demonstrating great skill and a strong dedication, he has moved quickly from Medior level Engineer to Senior Engineer at Gladior. When Indenty was founded, I entrusted him with the responsibility of setting up the Research and Development department and the day-to-day management as a Tech Lead.
In his role as a Tech Lead he has researched various development processes and adapted the Scrum proces to our needs. Besides the development process, he has managed to standardize the programming languages, the build system, the testing procedures and the frameworks that are used, which has resulted in much more confidence in the software that is being developed.
Daniël leads by example and many people here find his enthusiasm and dedication both inspiring and motivating. He has managed to create strong cohesion within his department by encouraging his co-workers to take responsibily for their projects and promoting an environment of sharing information and helping each other out. His efforts have created a happier and more productive team. Tom Visser, CEO, Indenty

To broaden my horizon I decided to study Philosophy of Science, Technology and Society, at one of the foremost Research Universities in The Netherlands. There I studied subjects such as:
But more importantly, I learned to
Thanks to my sound background, I was able to complete the four year bachelor program within three years. I studied subjects such as:
As my graduation project I designed and build, with two fellow students, a computer operated telephony switching system, including functionality for dial-plans, voice-mail (retrievable via remote dial-in, via e-mail or via the internet), logging and billing per extension, automatic answering and voice menus, etc.
Technisch College Ede is one of the foremost vocational education institutions in The Netherlands. Here I studied as an electrical engineer, with a focus on Computer Hardware and Embedded Systems. I studied subjects such as:
As my graduation project I designed and implemented (both hardware and software) an ISA-card to monitor a phone-system for billing purposes, to be used in e.g. hotels.
During my study on the Technical High School I have spend a lot of time with Daniel Bos. We did our final assesment project together in 2000. Daniel does have a big interest in software programming, but also Hardware engineering is something he can handle very easy.
Daniel moved to Hengelo to go to Technical university. I always knew he would have a great career. Daniel absolutely needs challenges in his jobs, but when you give him the space to be creative, he can do the impossible.Gert Bronkhorst, Senior R&D Engineer (Data Specialist) at Technetix
