Operator

Before I came to work at ASTRON, I had a job at a high-quality technology company. After that I wanted to work in a similar and challenging work environment. So I ended up at ASTRON. Here I’m dealing with a challenging and high-quality technical environment. Both in terms of hardware and software.

I find the study of the universe and the origin of our existence very fascinating. My activities contribute to this research. This gives me a good feeling and it is appreciated.

The international group of highly motivated colleagues makes my daily work fun. Together we carry out research and observations, we try to prevent problems and where necessary we solve them. It is a big challenge to keep the systems in top condition, but because of this it is possible that the best results can be achieved.

As an observer / operator you are never done with learning. You also get the space to think about the monitor / control means, as well as develop these. The systems change continuously and became increasingly more sensitive and larger in the course of the years. Software is being developed which ensures that you continuously grow along with its development. This is why ASTRON is a nice employer for me.
