I'am Theo van der Sluijs

Theo van der Sluijs

My name is Theo van der Sluijs and I am a Software Development Manager (at Bax-shop.nl) with a broad background in Software and Rich Internet (cloud-based) Application development.

As a mentor, negotiator and team leader, I forge solid relationships between my team members, product owners and stakeholders and I help the teams during the "sprints" to the finish line. I keep my staff keen and try them to push their own boundaries every day.

I report directly to the board / CEO and I am their advisor for IT issues and the IT strategy for the coming years. Every year I give my IT vision to the board / CEO for the coming year and make accurate budgets based on that vision.

I'm focused on technological issues and how to solve them with in-house known and new Cutting-Edge Technology.

I do contract negotiations with and keep a keen eye on software delivery of external companies or hired recourses. I translate internal business issues to FO's and TO's for these companies.

Just love the adoption and integration of new technology. I understand the need to align IT with real business needs, and to achieve these goals on time.

If you are interested, please visit one of my websites (vandersluijs.nl or iTheo.nl), find me on Linkedin or contact me by e-mail.

Honors and Awards

  • Anti-Fraud

    Together with the Police, Service Regional Crime Squad, I helped to uncover and convict a big gang of fraudsters.

    I helped the police getting the right fraud information with addresses and ip-addresses. With this big amount of information they could even go further in convicting this gang of fraudsters.

    There was no real Award, but but it was fun to do and help. The police honored me for helping out.
