About me

Name: Thom Bottram

Age: 26 years

Location: Bergeijk, The Netherlands

I am an allround software engineer with a growing knowledge of front and back-end techniques. I stand for quality and like structure and order. Optimizing applications and spending time on solving small details belong to my core skills. I like working in a team, because you learn faster and much more. As the saying goes: ‘two heads are better than one’.
