Every two weeks, we will post a blog about one of the Qlayers team members. This time, it's all about Mees.
Mees might not be a morning person, but for Qlayers our enthusiastic and resourceful mechanical engineer has absolutely no problem with the nine o’clock starting time. Mees is 21 years old and supports co-founder Ruben in the development of the Slash100, or as he likes to call it ‘The Slashie’. He finished his bachelors at the TU Delft in 2017 and now works full time for Qlayers. Mees got to know the company when he was studying abroad for a semester in Indonesia. By chance he followed a similar course as our co-founder Josefien and became intrigued by her story of Qlayers. Before he knew it, Mees used his Indonesian megabytes to skype with Ruben to discuss the possibilities of automated printing systems.
In February 2018, Mees van Vondelen officially started working for Qlayers. Mees is definitely an allrounder and spends his days alternating between experimenting, building components and doing theoretical research. One of the things Mees appreciates about Qlayers is the flat hierarchy. Having the opportunity to influence the decision making process of the management is quite rare but a valuable and educational aspect for a young engineer. Describing the atmosphere of Qlayers, Mees would like to say that he cannot imagine that any of our employees would ever wake up with a reluctance to go to work!
