Marco Franssen

My strengths are in researching new technologies and evaluating which technology and tools best fit with the architecture and operational requirements. By practicing various programming languages hands-on I developed strong skills which help me to guide development teams in correctly implementing design and solving the tough problems. Doing this in the past years resulted in having me always be one of the early adopters in new technology and tools that became very popular which gave us a strategic advantage to our competitors from a technology point of view.

My leadership style is to lead by example and being closely involved in the hands on practices. This way I help the teams grow at a personal as well at a team level to deliver high quality software.

Furthermore I have participated in the Atos Juniors Group Talent progam. It is the first stage in Atos Talent development programs. During this program you are working together with other Atos talents from all over the world for a period of 2 years. In those 2 years you will meet 6 times in various European locations. In between the meetings you work on high profile projects which bring direct value to the company at executive level. I graduated for this program in Februari 2016. Now I'm a proud alumni with a valuable worldwide network that represents the Atos' potential future leadership.

My hobby is photography and traveling. I also love to invest time on ditching out new technologies and lately I have been playing around with various OSS blockchain projects, IoT and trading crypto currency.

Last but not least, I love golang as a programming language.

In this project I'm responsible for the architecture of the application which is based on the CQRS principles. The domain is modeled by applying DDD. It is a ASP.NET MVC 3 webapplication based on HTML5. The application is used to administrate details and locations of the biomaterials. Scientific researchers use the services of the Biobank to store their biomaterials in freezers. Those materials will eventually be requested to do scientific research. The software we build assisted in getting those samples asap in the freezers in the most efficient way possible to guarantee quality of the samples. Once the research starts the software has advanced search capabilties to easily find back the storage location of samples. All of this consideirng high quality standards to protext the privacy of individuals prodiving their samples for scientific research.
