Faces of Salvia

Meet Joep, our Software Developer

"The fact that I can contribute to something with a real impact was the deciding factor for me to work here.”

Meet Joep Vermeij, Software Developer at Salvia BioElectronics. Joep's journey didn't start in IT. He grew up in Belgium, near the Dutch border in Achel, studied accounting and worked in the field. But his genuine interest was in computers. "I have always loved figuring out how things work, deconstructing a problem into its fundamental components, understanding those components and finding creative solutions.” This passion led Joep to switch gears and study software development.

When it was time for an internship, Joep knew he wanted to dive into the tech world, preferably at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, known for its tech companies shaping the future. "I had an offer from another IT company with a Google-like atmosphere, but after meeting Daniel (Salvia's co-founder), I was sure I wanted to work here. The fact that I could contribute to something with a real impact was the deciding factor for me to work here.”

During his internship at Salvia, Joep worked on the e-diary for clinical trial patients. Now, as a full-time software engineer, he focuses on data analysis and application development, among other things.

Staying with Salvia after his internship was a "no-brainer" for Joep. "The culture here is the best. I've worked in several places, but Salvia is special.” In addition to his studies, Joep worked in the hospitality industry for 10 years, working his way up from dishwasher to substitute chef. "Working in this environment teaches you how to handle stress, deal with people and work hard." It makes Joep appreciate the place he found at Salvia even more.

And does Joep share his culinary skills with his colleagues at Salvia? "Absolutely! I love serving food and making people happy. In fact... I've always wanted to make pizzas here.”

Joep's colleagues reading this will make sure he keeps that promise.

Page Title (H1)

Header (H2)

A subheading or chapter heading (H3)

Introductory text or a first paragraph of information on this subject. Write as naturally as possible and be nice and specific. If necessary, use AI software to help you get started, but definitely don't use it one-on-one. Search engines can penalize AI content.

Subheading (H4)

Here too there is more than enough room for a good story, an interesting article or background information. If necessary, use a summary:

  • a summary is clear
  • one can see the benefits or features at a glance
  • also use search terms if necessary

Another topic (H3)

Another subheading (H4)

Do not use a Title Header (H1), but use an H2 Header instead. An H1 is actually a title of the page and may only appear once on a web page. The H2 is a kind of chapter and the other headers (H3 to H6) are subheadings and subheadings within the chapter. The order is important for the readability of visitors and search engines.

  1. a summary is clear
  2. one can see the benefits or features at a glance
  3. also use search terms if necessary

This way everything remains easy to read and understandable for the reader. People can also scroll directly to the topic they are interested in.

Paragraph heading style (H5)

This is another example of a heading. The headings H5 and H6 are usually used as paragraph headings, each with their own style.

Paragraph heading style (H6)

In the editor you can really see a difference in font size of all headers, but on the live website they have their own style.

Other options

Use a "quote". That looks like this:

This is a quote!

You can also put texts in bold, italic, etc.
Of maak een link naar een andere pagina of website.
And finally, you can also create Superscript(1) and Subscript(2) text.
