Nick Vanderhoven has a master in computer science engineering, +10 years of professional experience, crossed the biggest financial and governemental institutions and is course manager and lead architect at CCV Lab (innovating payment solutions).
He is the senior software engineer that you want in your team. When you confront him with a complex problem, he's able to explain the solution with amazing lucidity, giving you the feeling that the problem had always been really simple and transparent. That's what you want: someone that takes the huge load of experience and brings it to you in a comprehensible way.
